Geiss, Paul Georg – Psychology Teaching Review, 2019
Psychological literacy has become a key concept for the teaching and learning of psychology in higher education and is a laudable goal of pre-tertiary psychology education. The widely used definition of McGovern and his colleagues enables a subject-specific contribution to liberal education. Nevertheless, this definition also includes general…

Tappert, Charles C.; Frank, Ronald I.; Barabasi, Istvan; Leider, Avery M.; Evans, Daniel; Westfall, Lewis – Association Supporting Computer Users in Education, 2019
There is a quantum computing race among the tech giants Google, IBM, and Microsoft, including to a lesser extent Amazon and China's Alibaba. Governments, particularly America and China, are funding work in the area with the concern that quantum computers may soon crack current encryption methods, giving the country that gets there first a major…

Liang, Qingsheng; Wei, Yajun – Physics Teacher, 2018
"How does an aircraft fly?" is one of the most frequently asked science questions by young pupils. The lift on airplane wings also makes a great example of the application of the Bernoulli principle while teaching fluid mechanics in introductory physics and engineering courses. The topic is of great interest and is therefore covered in…

Langman, Catherine; Zawojewski, Judith; McNicholas, Patricia; Cinar, Ali; Brey, Eric; Bilgic, Mustafa; Mehdizadeh, Hamidreza – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2018
This small-scale design study describes disciplinary learning in mathematical modeling and science from an authentic engineeringthemed module. Current research in tissue engineering served as source material for the module, including science content for readings and a mathematical modeling activity in which students work in small teams to design a…

Sanabria, Jorge C.; Arámburo-Lizárraga, Jesús – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
As 21st century skills (e.g., creativity and collaboration) are informally developed by tech-savvy learners in the Digital Age, technology-based strategies to develop such skills in non-formal and formal contexts are necessary to reduce the gap between academic and business organizations on the one hand, and the revolutionary wave of self-taught…

Irby, Stefan M.; Phu, Andy L.; Borda, Emily J.; Haskell, Todd R.; Steed, Nicole; Meyer, Zachary – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2016
There is much agreement among chemical education researchers that expertise in chemistry depends in part on the ability to coordinate understanding of phenomena on three levels: macroscopic (observable), sub-microscopic (atoms, molecules, and ions) and symbolic (chemical equations, graphs, etc.). We hypothesize this "level-coordination…

Kimberlin, Stephanie; Yezierski, Ellen – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
Students' inaccurate ideas about what is represented by chemical equations and concepts underlying stoichiometry are well documented; however, there are few classroom-ready instructional solutions to help students build scientifically accurate ideas about these topics central to learning chemistry. An intervention (two inquiry-based activities)…

Bringula, Rex P.; Basa, Roselle S.; Dela Cruz, Cecilio; Rodrigo, Ma. Mercedes T. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2016
This study attempted to determine the influence of prior knowledge in mathematics of students on learner-interface interactions in a learning-by-teaching intelligent tutoring system. One hundred thirty-nine high school students answered a pretest (i.e., the prior knowledge in mathematics) and a posttest. In between the pretest and posttest, they…

Dillon, Thomas W.; Reif, Harry L.; Thomas, Daphyne S. – Journal of Information Systems Education, 2016
This study examines two alternative interventions designed to attract diverse students to pursue information technology or, more generally, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers from a Return on Investment (ROI) perspective. More specifically, this study examines the effectiveness and efficiency of single-day and multi-day…

Engle, Randi A.; Lam, Diane P.; Meyer, Xenia S.; Nix, Sarah E. – Educational Psychologist, 2012
When contexts are framed expansively, students are positioned as actively contributing to larger conversations that extend across time, places, and people. A set of recent studies provides empirical evidence that the expansive framing of contexts can foster transfer. In this article, we present five potentially complementary explanations for how…
