Korean High School Students' Views about Learning and Knowing Science.
Park, Hyun-Ju; Choi, Byung-Soon
While previous studies have recognized and have researched the resistance of students' scientific conception to change and the difficulty of the change of the conception's status, few have investigated the idea of conceptual ecology as the affective and motivational aspects might play when students are exposed to conceptual change learning. The present study was conducted to describe in detail Korean students' view about learning and knowing science with students' conceptual ecologies. The study was interpretive, using multiple data sources to achieve a triangulation of data. Three students from a public high school for boys serve as cases representative of Korea students' views of learning and knowing science. Students' enthusiasm to pursue science was closely connected to their views about learning and knowing science. Students' views about learning and knowing science are influenced by their views regarding science and science class including the nature of knowledge, learning, and their epistemological commitments. They influence students' self-efficacy and motivation on learning science. (Contains 34 references.) (Author/ASK)
