Odden, Tor Ole B.; Russ, Rosemary S. – Science Education, 2019
In recent years, science education researchers have increasingly studied the ways in which students "make sense" of science. However, although researchers might all agree intuitively on what it looks like, the literature on sensemaking is theoretically fragmented. In this paper, we address this fragmentation by proposing a coherent…

Pleasants, Jacob; Olson, Joanne K. – Science Education, 2019
What is engineering? What do engineers do? How is engineering related to, but distinct from, science? These questions all relate to the nature of engineering (NOE), and as engineering is incorporated into K-12 education across the United States, the NOE is becoming increasingly important for students and teachers. While many policy documents call…

Chen, Ouhao; Manalo, Emmanuel; She, Yan – Educational Studies, 2019
A 2 (learning strategies: diagram vs. summary) × 2 (levels of expertise: low vs. high) experiment was conducted to compare the effectiveness of using diagrams to writing summaries for students given biological information to learn and who possessed different levels of expertise in that topic area. A main effect of learning strategy used on number…

Holbert, Nathan; Wilensky, Uri – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
In this article we propose that educational game design should work to create games as objects-to-think-with--games that engage players in the exploration of and experimentation with personally interesting questions around domain-relevant representations. We argue that this design focuses on developing tools and interactions that the player can…

Johnson, Jessica A.; Taylor, Barrett J. – Innovative Higher Education, 2019
In the academic capitalist knowledge regime, institutions compete for prestige and funding. Reward structures emphasize science and engineering (S&E) fields for their potential to generate money and status. Masculine norms and male majority in S&E fields may create conditions for gender differences in faculty compensation. We explored the…

Aravind, Vasudeva Rao; Refugio, Craig – World Journal on Educational Technology: Current Issues, 2019
Science and engineering departments face high student attrition due to perceived difficulty of courses in these disciplines. To subdue student attrition, students need to be guided by individual tutors to help them learn, practice and test their understanding of concepts. However, due to the exorbitant cost and time involved, this is not…

Ikävalko, Elina; Brunila, Kristiina – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Researchers often find themselves reflecting on either/or questions. This article examines the multiple discursive reality of gender equality, a topic comprising several juxtapositions connected to either/or thinking which also provide the topic its legitimacy. The examples come from the context of gender equality work and gender equality policy,…

Wyner, Yael; Blatt, Erica – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
This study used sociocultural learning theory to better understand how middle and high school environmental science and biology students and pre- and in-service science teachers connect the daily life activity of eating to the food web model learned in school. We sought to understand how student and teacher perceptions of the environment and their…

Gunckel, Kristin L. – Theory Into Practice, 2019
The heterogendered cultural discourse that privileges heterosexuality and normalizes sexual and gender binaries damages the science knowledge and opportunities to engage in science learning that children experience in elementary school science. This article analyzes a typical science lesson on crayfish to show how the heterogendered obsession with…

de Cavalho, Julio Cesar Queiroz; Beltramini, Leila Maria; Bossolan, Nelma Regina Segnini – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
The present work aimed to investigate the contribution of the board game 'Synthesizing Proteins' to the understanding of protein synthesis by high school students, based on the socio-interactionist theory of Vygotsky. Fifteen students (six from a public school and nine from a private school) participated in the research, which had three stages:…

McFadden, Justin; Roehrig, Gillian – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
This exploratory case study examines how various instructional strategies can influence elementary-aged student discourse patterns during an engineering design challenge. With engineering design increasingly entering the elementary science classroom both within the United States and internationally, students must now engage in discipline-specific…
