Kirikkaya, Esma Bulus; Basaran, Billur – European Journal of Educational Research, 2019
In this research, After I have realized some technological applications in the course of general physics laboratory II of the science teacher program, this research aims to examine the effects of the students' attitudes towards technology and the information of the communication technology (ICT) with the mixed method. For this application, after…

Holmes, Shawn Y.; Annetta, Leonard; Crumb, Loni – Journal of Education in Science, Environment and Health, 2019
A computer-based simulation, Hazelton High at REST (HHR), with embedded performance-based assessments and Likert-type survey questions was created to assess preservice teacher recognition of racial and gender intolerant behaviors. The simulation was modeled after the Racial Ethical Sensitivity Test (REST), a reliable video-based assessment,…

Bati, Kaan – Critical Questions in Education, 2019
In recent years, the trend in science education is toward scientific processes rather than scientific knowledge. An effective science education not only requires the active involvement of students in scientific investigations, but also the development of engagement in discussions about scientific and social issues. To develop students' discussion…

Lavi, Rea; Dori, Yehudit Judy – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Systems thinking is an important skill in science and engineering education. Our study objectives were (1) to create the basis for a systems thinking language common to both science education and engineering education, and (2) to apply this language to assess science and engineering teachers' systems thinking. We administered two assignments to…

Postigo, Yolanda; López-Manjón, Asunción – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This paper analyses the extent to which textbook images are designed using the Instructional Criteria for Image Analysis (ICIA) model in textbooks. The ICIA proposed that learning through images involves interaction between the learner, the image, and the activities with images proposed to the student. Images from the main text and activity…

Peacock, Jeremy; Melville, Wayne – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Working from a historical perspective indicates that there are four periods over the last 170 years through which the role of the science chair has developed. This evolution has progressed from the administrative need to implement the agenda of the newly professionalised science of the nineteenth century, to a greater emphasis on the role of the…

Chiu, Mei-Hung; Liaw, Hongming Leonard; Yu, Yuh-Ru; Chou, Chin-Cheng – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Utilizing facial recognition technology, the current study has attempted to predict the likelihood of student conceptual change with decision tree models based on the facial micro-expression states (FMES) students exhibited when they experience conceptual conflict. While conceptual change through conceptual conflicts in science education is a…

Liu, Qing-Tang; Liu, Bo-Wei; Lin, Yu-Ren – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The present study investigated the influence of two factors, namely, argumentation approach and students' prior knowledge on the learning of scientific concept and argumentation in descriptive and theoretical scientific concept-based topics. Four 7th grade science classes totalling 138 students participated and were assigned to four groups…

Neat, Adam – Physics Teacher, 2019
How far, in space, can we see? And can we see an object whose Hubble recessional velocity exceeds the speed of light? Maybe you've thought about these questions before, or perhaps you've seen them discussed in the literature or mentioned in the media. With the recent popularity of inflation and Big Bang cosmology, they're hard to avoid. The…

Wind, Stefanie A.; Alemdar, Meltem; Lingle, Jeremy A.; Moore, Roxanne; Asilkalkan, Abdullah – International Journal of STEM Education, 2019
Typical approaches to assessing students' understanding of the engineering design process (EDP) include performance assessments that are time-consuming to score. It is also possible to use multiple-choice (MC) items to assess the EDP, but researchers and practitioners often view the diagnostic value of this assessment format as limited. However,…

Park, Hyeran; Kim, Youngmin; Jeong, Seongoh – Asia-Pacific Science Education, 2019
Science festivals have been reported as an effective way to communicate science between scientists and the public; however, only a few studies have examined systematically and consistently how the festivals effect the public's conceptions of science. Moreover, few studies about science festivals for special education students are conducted. This…

Kumarassamy, Jayanthy; Koh, Caroline – Research in Science Education, 2019
Much has been written and debated on the importance of including moral, character or values education in school curricula. In line with this, teachers' views with regard to values education have often been sought. However, a search into the literature on values in science education has revealed little on this domain. In an attempt to close this…

Olivares-Donoso, Ruby; González, Carlos – Research in Science Education, 2019
Over the last 25 years, both research literature and practice-oriented reports have claimed the need for improving the quality of undergraduate science education through linking research and teaching. Two manners of doing this are reported: undergraduate research and research-based courses. Although there are studies reporting benefits of…

Yoon, Susan A.; Goh, Sao-Ee; Yang, Zhitong – Complicity: An International Journal of Complexity and Education, 2019
Recent research on what students know about complex systems shows that they typically have challenges in understanding particular system ideas such as nonlinearity, complex causality, and decentralized control. Yet this research has yet to adopt a systematic approach to learning about complex systems in an ordered way in line with the Next…

Lundgren, Lisa; Crippen, Kent J. – International Journal on E-Learning, 2019
Both social media and informal learning spaces have the potential to foment knowledge-building. This article aims to bridge theory and practice with an analysis of the social media practices across informal science learning centers through the lens of the Contextual Model of Learning. We evaluate strategies through directed content analysis of…
