Open peer commentary on the article “Studying Conceptual Change in Classrooms: Using Association Rule Mining to Detect Changes in Students’ Explanations of the Effects of Urban Planning and Social Policy” by Arthur Hjorth & Uri Wilensky. Abstract: Hjorth and Wilensky’s target article describes two important tools for helping students debug their conceptual misconceptions: the NetLogo model, and results from Association Rule Mining. In this commentary, I focus on these tools’ contributions to the debugging process, and the way they allow students to improve their conceptual knowledge.
