Teiermayer, Attila – Physics Education, 2019
The BBC Micro:bit is a great device to encourage students to get involved in Computer Science and to create their own digital projects. However, the design of the single-board computer (including the built-in sensors) makes it possible to use it in Physics lessons or in Physics related activities, too. Those students who are keen to take up…

Alinea, Allan L.; Naylor, Wade – Physics Education, 2015
Since October 2010, the Chemistry-Biology Combined Major Program, an international course taught in English at Osaka University, has been teaching small classes (no more than 20 in size). We present data from the Force Concept Inventory (FCI) given to first-year classical mechanics students (N = 47 students over three years) pre and post score,…

Voroshilov, Valentin – Physics Education, 2015
If a person has "a problem" to solve and knows the solution and just has to apply it (retrieve it from memory and re-act), it is not a problem--it is a task; if a person does not know the solution and has to create it--this is a problem. Using this language, there are only two situations: (a) one has to perform a task; or (b) one has to…

Albadi, Nouf Mohammed; Harkins, Jean; O'Toole, John Mitchell – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Recent research in science education for learners whose first language is Arabic suggests that learning in the mother tongue can reduce learner misconceptions, but there has been little research into the comprehensibility of science texts where Arabic is the language of instruction. This mixed-methods study describes the perceptions of substantial…

Klempin, Christiane; Rehfeldt, Daniel – International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, 2020
Undoubtedly, supporting reflection in student teachers during university-based training is one of the most sustained measures to attain teacher professionalism. Therefore, at the Freie Universität Berlin an on-campus seminar designed to relate theory to practice and vice versa -- the so-called "Teaching and Learning Lab (TLLS)" -- was…

Baloyi-Mothibeli, Seipati L.; Ugwuanyi, Christian S.; Okeke, Chinedu I. O. – Cypriot Journal of Educational Sciences, 2021
This study sought strategies to improve teachers' professional curriculum practices in a Grade R mathematics class. A phenomenological research design was employed to generate data for the study using a sample of fifteen participants. A semi-structured interview guide was used to collect the data for the study. In this regard, the interview guide…

Fridberg, Marie; Jonsson, Agneta; Redfors, Andreas; Thulin, Susanne – Early Childhood Education Journal, 2020
The overall aim of the present study is to study model-based teaching and the collaborative inquiry learning of chemical processes and physical phenomena in preschool, with a specific focus on the verbal communication established between teachers and children (4-5 years old). According to variation theory, learning is always directed at a specific…

Girwidz, Raimund; Thoms, Lars-Jochen; Pol, Henk; López, Víctor; Michelini, Marisa; Stefanel, Alberto; Greczylo, Tomasz; Müller, Andreas; Gregorcic, Bor; Hömöstrei, Mihály – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Teacher-oriented journals provide many ideas for practical use of multimedia in physics teaching and learning. However, they are often written in their respective native languages. Moreover, having 24 official languages in the European Union is a huge barrier to the exchange of teaching and learning material. Knowledge about what is discussed in…

Desilet, Gregory – Quarterly Journal of Speech, 1999
Argues that the deconstructive practice of disturbing the status quo between opposites constitutes one of the central themes of physics since the Enlightenment. Summarizes parallel developments in physics and language studies from Aristotle to Einstein. Contends that to question postmodern language theory exemplified in deconstruction necessitates…

Thompson, Alaric – School Science Review, 2016
This article explores some of the common mathematical difficulties that 11- to 16-year-old students experience with respect to their learning of physics. The definition of "understanding" expressed in the article is in the sense of transferability of mathematical skills from topic to topic within physics as well as between the separate…

Daniels, Emily A.; Squires, Maureen – Networks: An Online Journal for Teacher Research, 2014
Students enter Emily Daniels' and Maureen Squires' combined Bachelor of Arts/Master's in the Science of Teaching Program as undergraduates or move into their MST Program as Master's candidates matriculating after they have earned Bachelor's degree elsewhere. Both groups of students take the research class during their first semester of graduate…

Bautista, Romiro G. – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2015
This study ascertains that the students' affordance of teleologic explanations and anthropomorphic language in eliciting concepts in Physics is influenced by their age and learning exposure and experience. Using Explicative-Reductive Method of Descriptive Research, this study focused on the determinants of students' affordance of…

Louwerse, Max M.; Crossley, Scott A.; Jeuniaux, Patrick – Linguistics and Education: An International Research Journal, 2008
Many corpus linguistic studies have investigated classification of texts into genres and registers, but relatively few of these studies have looked at linguistic features in educational registers. From a pedagogical perspective it is important to determine whether certain linguistic features behave differently across registers within particular…

Margoniner, Vera; Bürki, Jérôme; Kapp, Micaela – Physics Teacher, 2019
In fall 2014 we started the development of a series of short YouTube videos to help our introductory physics students better comprehend concepts they tend to find challenging. Our work is inspired by the PhD thesis of Derek Muller (author of the Veritasium channel) showing that lecture-based videos tend to be not only ineffective, but actually…

Kääntä, Leila; Kasper, Gabriele – Classroom Discourse, 2018
Using multimodal conversation analysis, this article examines how students strive to resolve non-understandings through requests for clarification during teacher-fronted physics lectures taught in English in Finland. The findings provide new insights on the sequential environments in which students launch the requests (i.e. between or during…
