Abstract: The form of learners' ontologies of physics concepts such as heat and electric current is a subject of current debate within the learning sciences. In one view, there is a cognitive barrier to transitioning between ontological categories; others argue that experts and novices transition flexibly between ontological categories. In this poster, we support the latter view through arguing that experts coordinate transitions between ontological categories for heat and electric current and discuss the instructional implications of these results.
