O'Keeffe, Lisa; White, Bruce; Panizzon, Debra; Elliott, Katrina; Semmens, Alex – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Studies, such as Programme for International Student Assessment 2012, indicate that there are gender based differences in measures of mathematics anxiety, self-concept and self-efficacy among students. In this study we explore self-efficacy, self-concept and mathematics anxiety in a sample of Year 7 and 8 South Australian students to examine if…

Sherman, Khristine; Gabriel, Rachael – Reading Teacher, 2017
Reading and creating stories is a longstanding pedagogical approach to literacy learning in elementary school classrooms because stories offer personal and human experiences to which students can relate and respond. Stories, including digital forms such as short films, offer accounts of what it is to belong to a community and its worldviews and…

English, Lyn D.; King, Donna; Smeed, Joanna – Journal of Educational Research, 2017
As part of a 3-year longitudinal study, 136 sixth-grade students completed an engineering-based problem on earthquakes involving integrated STEM learning. Students employed engineering design processes and STEM disciplinary knowledge to plan, sketch, then construct a building designed to withstand earthquake damage, taking into account a number of…

Lunn Brownlee, Jo; Curtis, Elizabeth; Spooner-Lane, Rebecca; Feucht, Florian – Education 3-13, 2017
Research shows that the beliefs individuals hold about knowledge and knowing (epistemic beliefs) influence learning approaches and outcomes. However, little is known about the nature of children's epistemic beliefs and how best to measure these. In this pilot study, 11 Australian children (in Grade 4 or Grade 6) were asked to "draw, write and…

Nichols, Kim; Burgh, Gilbert; Kennedy, Callie – Research in Science Education, 2017
Developing students' skills to pose and respond to questions and actively engage in inquiry behaviours enables students to problem solve and critically engage with learning and society. The aim of this study was to analyse the impact of providing teachers with an intervention in inquiry pedagogy alongside inquiry science curriculum in comparison…

Sawatzki, Carly – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
In this paper, I explore data collected from more than 300 Year 5 and 6 students in four government primary schools in urban Darwin. Students were asked to respond to real-world problem contexts involving fundraising as an example of an enterprise activity. The findings reveal that familiarity with the problem context, personal values, and…

Skues, Jason L.; Cunningham, Everarda G.; Theiler, Stephen S. – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2016
This study tests a proposed model of coping outcomes for 290 primary school students in Years 5 and 6 (mean age = 11.50 years) with and without learning disabilities (LDs) within a resource-based framework of coping. Group-administered educational and intelligence tests were used to screen students for LDs. Students also completed a questionnaire…

English, Lyn D.; King, Donna T. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016
How do cross-bracing, geometry, and base isolation help buildings withstand earthquakes? These important structural design features involve fundamental geometry that elementary school students can readily model and understand. The problem activity, Designing an Earthquake-Resistant Building, was undertaken by several classes of sixth- grade…

King, Donna; English, Lyn D. – International Journal of Science Education, 2016
Internationally there is a need for research that focuses on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education to equip students with the skills needed for a rapidly changing future. One way to do this is through designing engineering activities that reflect real-world problems and contextualise students' learning of STEM concepts.…

Carr, Imogen; Szabó, Marianna – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2015
Worry in adults has been conceptualized as a thinking process involving problem-solving attempts about anticipated negative outcomes. This process is related to, though distinct from, fear. Previous research suggested that compared to adults, children's experience of worry is less strongly associated with thinking and more closely related to fear.…
