Parlakay, Eda Salman; Koç, Yasemin – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2020
This study aims to investigate the effects of Science Technology Education Math (STEM) practices on academic achievement and motivations of students in the 5th grade of middle school in "Exploring and Knowing the World of Living Creatures" section in Science lecture. The study was designed in a semi-experimental pattern with pre-test…

Cadenas, Germán A.; Cantú, Elizabeth Angélica; Spence, Tameka; Ruth, Alissa – Journal of Career Development, 2020
The United States faces shortages of professionals in science, technology, engineering, and math enterprises, which are complicated by underrepresented minorities facing systemic barriers to their educational and career success. Addressing this, we used social cognitive career theory and critical consciousness to create a program named Poder…

Blom, Nicolaas; Bogaers, Alfred – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
One of the characteristics of the twenty-first century is the increase in the information sources available to designers to make their design decisions. However, current verbal protocol analysis methods and theoretical frameworks do not explain how internal and external information sources contribute to novice designers' moment-to-moment thought…

Lin, Kuen-Yi; Yu, Kuang-Chao; Hsiao, Hsien-Sheng; Chang, Yu-Shan; Chien, Yu-Hung – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
Collaborative problem-solving skills are one of the key competencies required in the twenty-first century. In this study, researchers attempted to compare the effectiveness of web-based collaborative problem-solving systems (wCPSS) and classroom-based collaborative hands-on learning activities (cCHLA) in the development of collaborative…

Parker, Philip D.; Van Zanden, Brooke; Marsh, Herbert W.; Owen, Katherine; Duineveld, Jasper J.; Noetel, Michael – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Expectancy value theory is often evoked by educational psychologists to explain gender differences in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) variables. Yet gender does not operate in isolation. Nor are gender effects likely to be context free. In the current meta-analysis, we explore gender differences in STEM-related expectancy…

Crowther, Gregory J.; Wessels, Jason; Lesser, Lawrence M.; Breckler, Jennifer L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
The possible benefits of using music to enhance learning of STEM content are numerous, diverse, and largely unproven. We sought to determine which (if any) of these possible benefits are commonly experienced by undergraduate students and are thus especially worthy of further investigation. Four hundred ninety-three students in nine physiology…

Marder, Michael; David, Bernard; Hamrock, Caitlin – Education Policy Analysis Archives, 2020
Texas provides a unique opportunity to examine teachers without standard university preparation, for it prepares more teachers through alternative pathways than any other state. We find two advantages for mathematics and science teachers prepared in the standard way. First, since 2008 they have been staying in the classroom longer than those who…

Halpin, Patricia; Donahue, Ann E.; Johnson, Kathryn M. S. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Experiential learning experiences (ELEs), opportunities for students to apply knowledge and skills critically in a hands-on environment, are fundamental to the apprenticeship model of biological and biotechnological sciences. ELEs enhance student-learning gains, increase career readiness, and provide important networking opportunities. However,…

Tripp, Brie; Voronoff, Sophia A.; Shortlidge, Erin E. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2020
A desired outcome of education reform efforts is for undergraduates to effectively integrate knowledge across disciplines in order to evaluate and address real-world issues. Yet there are few assessments designed to measure if and how students think interdisciplinarily. Here, a sample of science faculty were surveyed to understand how they…

Yata, Chikahiko; Ohtani, Tadashi; Isobe, Masataka – International Journal of STEM Education, 2020
Background: School education should improve science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) ability not only in science and mathematics but also in technology and engineering. However, practice and research are being conducted without clear definitions and methods for STEM education. Moreover, the positioning and characteristics of the…

Dougherty, Shaun M.; Harbaugh Macdonald, Isabel – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2020
In the United States, high school career and technical education (CTE) is the primary source of vocational training at the secondary level, and is similar in goal if not form to vocational education and training (VET) worldwide. CTE has evolved in the past decade to place greater emphasis on programmes in Science, Technology, Engineering, and…

Fendos, Justin – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
As a global phenomenon, the spread of evidence-based teaching (EBT) in STEM education has been very uneven. Outside of the United States, parts of Europe, and Oceania, EBT awareness is generally regarded as being extremely low. In the United States, programs like the Summer Institutes (SI) have been used to help disseminate awareness and train…

Moore, Tamara J.; Brophy, Sean P.; Tank, Kristina M.; Lopez, Ruben D.; Johnston, Amanda C.; Hynes, Morgan M.; Gajdzik, Elizabeth – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Computational thinking requires high cognitive load as students work to manage multiple tasks in their problem-solving environment. Through research in K-2 classrooms on computational thinking, we noticed that students lack the representational fluency needed to move from one form to another--such as moving from physical to more abstract…
