Hutchinson, Janet; Huberman, Michael
Dissemination of educational research and effective practice has burgeoned in the past two decades. This report reviews the research on knowledge use in science and mathematics education and highlights approaches and strategies for dissemination which might be particularly useful to the National Science Foundation. In particular, the influence of constructivist perspectives in knowledge use and education on the dissemination of knowledge are highlighted. Literature on dissemination and use is reviewed in several fields, including physical sciences, architecture, waste management, and organizational management. Contains 90 references. (PR)
