Tuttle, Nicole; Obringer, Mary; Czajkowski, Kevin; Czerniak, Charlene M. – Science and Children, 2014
Children are natural scientists full of curiosity. This curiosity allows them to ask questions about and to investigate their surroundings. Since science is not just a collection of facts to be learned, but rather investigations that need to be made, teachers should encourage that natural curiosity in the classroom. Luckily, the "Next…

Lenhard, Wolfgang; Schröppel, Daniela – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2014
Diagnostic information is a centrepiece of educational decision making. Far-reaching decisions like placements within multi-tiered school systems may have a huge long-term impact on the achieved level of education. Therefore, such decisions should be substantiated or complemented by objective and prognostically valid information. To this end, we…

Annetta, Leonard; Vallett, David; Fusarelli, Bonnie; Lamb, Richard; Cheng, Meng-Tzu; Holmes, Shawn; Folta, Elizabeth; Thurmond, Brandi – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2014
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect Serious Educational Games (SEGs) had on student interest in science in a federally funded game-based learning project. It can be argued that today's students are more likely to engage in video games than they are to interact in live, face-to-face learning environments. With a keen eye on…

In line with global trends, Australian educational policy emphatically recognises the need for contemporary learners to be digitally literate, with provision of "one-to-one" devices to individual learners in schools a major implementation strategy. However, without teacher commitment, the benefits of such investment in one-to-one…

Bickel, Donna DiPrima; Bernstein-Danis, Tabetha; Matsumura, Lindsay Clare – Journal of Staff Development, 2014
Learning how to give effective feedback can be a difficult task for teacher leaders. This is especially true for what is called "hard feedback"--that is, feedback that challenges the teacher's practice and therefore may cause some level of professional discomfort. Educators at the University of Pittsburgh's Institute for Learning have…
