The Role of School Technicians in Promoting Science through Practical Work
Helliar, Anne T.; Harrison, Timothy G.
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v4 n2-3 p15-20 2011
This is a review of the role of practical work in UK's secondary school science lessons, the impact that practical work has in the promotion of science, the challenges created through use of non-specialist science teachers and a possible additional role for science technicians. The paper considers how improved deployment of suitably experienced school science technicians and their recognition, by schools' management, for their involvement in the delivery of training in the use of practical work, for less experienced teachers, could benefit schools and their students. This together with its companion paper endeavours to show how the more effective use of practical work and technicians can encourage more students to select science at higher, non-compulsory levels.
