This paper is an exploration of conceptual change. It reports on a study which utilizes conceptual status elements, and explores the unique contribution of Slowmation Animation in the conceptual learning of preservice science teachers. 15 short animations were created by 55 participants in a single two hour tutorial class as a part of their methods training. Conceptual change was found to occur when their animation topic challenged their understandings of the processes within the scienti?c concept. The preservice science teachers reported an enthusiasm for Slowmation Animation as a method for learning how to learn, as well as for highlighting what they thought they knew, but didn?t really know.
