Luft, Julie A.; Whitworth, Brooke A.; Berry, Amanda; Navy, Shannon; Kind, Vanessa – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Science teacher professional development is complex. Phases in a teacher's career necessitate different professional learning opportunities. Furthermore, knowledge bases, practices, and attributes need to be cultivated during these times. For science teachers, it is not always evident how to link professional learning opportunities progressively…

Woitkowski, David – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2019
University professors' views of nature of science play an important role when guiding undergraduate students into the culture of practicing physicists. While these topics have a long-standing tradition in U.S. curricula they are not part of German educational standards or curricula. Additionally professors' views--in contrast to those of their…

Sullivan, Amanda; Bers, Marina Umaschi – Journal of Information Technology Education: Research, 2019
Aim/Purpose: Educational robotics competitions are a popular way to increase students' interest in science and engineering during their K-12 years. However, female students are typically underrepresented in these competitions. The goal of this study is to determine differences in the experiences of male and female robotics competition students in…

Lee, Okhee; Llosa, Lorena; Grapin, Scott; Haas, Alison; Goggins, Marcelle – Science Education, 2019
The purpose of this study is to present a conceptual framework that integrates science and language learning for all students, including English learners (ELs). This framework is grounded in the mutually supportive nature of science instructional shifts, spurred by "A Framework for K-12 Science Education" (National Research Council,…

Piqueras, Jesús; Achiam, Marianne – Science Education, 2019
Educators' work is a key element in museums' learning experience, yet knowledge about their professional development is still limited. In this study, we followed three science museum educators' professional growth during collaboration with researchers, with special focus on the introduction of research-based frameworks in their practice. To…

Pattison, Scott A.; Dierking, Lynn D. – Science Education, 2019
Fostering interest in science is critical for broadening engagement with science topics, careers, and hobbies. Research suggests that these interests begin to form as early as preschool and have long-term implications for participation and learning. However, scholars have only speculated on the processes that shape interest development at this…

Furman, Melina; De Angelis, Susan; Dominguez Prost, Enzo; Taylor, Inés – International Journal of Early Years Education, 2019
Information communication technologies (ICT) is increasingly being introduced in the preschool level, but questions have been raised regarding its potential to develop content knowledge or specific skills. This quasi-experimental study looked into the impact that hand-held tablets can have on science learning outcomes in five-year-olds. Four…

Anilan, Burcu; Berber, Asiye – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2019
Through problem solving especially in the chemistry courses, individuals are required to solve difference types of problems both in traditional and innovative ways, and to reveal different points of views. Both correct results and correct units are achieved through the conversion factors. The fact that the teacher candidates approach problem…

Lindfors, Maria; Winberg, Mikael; Bodin, Madelen – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Research on how epistemic beliefs influence students' learning in different contexts is ambiguous. Given this, we have examined the relationships between students' scientific epistemic beliefs, their problem solving, and solutions in a constructionist computer-simulation in classical mechanics. The problem-solving process and performance of 19…

Xu, Lihua – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The relationship between teaching and learning is a most central issue in education research, but it is yet to be fully understood. Variation Theory provides an explanatory account for teaching and learning and offers a specific view on what it means to learn: to discriminate and to discern critical aspects of the object of learning. This paper…

Furtak, Erin Marie; Penuel, William R. – Science Education, 2019
In recent years, the focus of science education reform has shifted to engaging students in three-dimensional science learning experiences aligned with the National Research Council's (2012) Framework for K-12 Science Education. This movement has been associated with a focus on students participating in science as practice, which represents a…
