Wong, Choun Pei; Subramaniam, R. – School Science Review, 2020
The infrared camera, or thermal imaging camera, can be used to complement the teaching of a number of topics in high school science. Here, we provide seven examples of its application in teaching physics, chemistry and biology concepts at high school level. We also discuss its strengths for such applications and provide some pointers for science…

Seibert, Johann; Kay, Christopher W. M.; Huwer, Johannes – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Given that students are constantly communicating and documenting special experiences in their social and private lives with digital devices, we suggest that this behavior could be used to record and deepen learning experiences-such as visualizing reactions at the molecular level-in a chemistry class. An example would be the creation of stop-motion…

Nennig, Hannah T.; Idárraga, Katrina L.; Salzer, Luke D.; Bleske-Rechek, April; Theisen, Roslyn M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Despite recent interest in online learning, systematic comparisons of online learning environments with traditional classroom environments are limited, particularly in the sciences. Here, we report on a systematic comparison of an online and face-to-face classroom for a sophomore-level, lecture-only introductory inorganic chemistry course that is…

Tarkin, Aysegul; Uzuntiryaki-Kondakci, Esen – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
This study aims to compare the effectiveness of case-based instruction over traditional instruction in improving 11th grade students' understanding of electrochemistry concepts, attitudes toward chemistry, chemistry self-efficacy beliefs, and motivation to learn chemistry. In total, 113 students (47 males and 66 females) from three high schools…

Kirbulut, Zubeyde Demet – Eurasian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Purpose: Self-efficacy plays a crucial role in achievement; and thus, it is important to determine the factors affecting self-efficacy. It has been known that one's reflections and evaluations of their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are of paramount importance in the development of self-efficacy. Therefore, the aim of this study was to…

Osokoya, Modupe M.; Nwazota, Chinwe C. – Journal of the International Society for Teacher Education, 2018
The study assessed effects of problem-based learning approach on senior secondary school students' practical skills in chemistry and the role of school type as a moderating variable. A pretest, posttest control group quasiexperimental setting with non-equivalent groups design was adopted. A total of 124 students (54 from coeducational and 70 from…

Jones, Oliver A. H.; Spichkova, Maria; Spencer, Michelle J. S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Mobile technology is increasingly prevalent in higher education. Chemistry-related software applications (apps) on touchscreen computers are emerging as a popular platform in many areas, including in the chemistry classroom. In this work, a new game-based app designed for hand-held and portable touch-controlled devices is presented. Chirality-2…

Prilliman, Stephen G. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2014
The College Board's recently revised curriculum for advanced placement (AP) chemistry places a strong emphasis on conceptual understanding, including representations of particle phenomena. This change in emphasis is informed by years of research showing that students could perform algorithmic calculations but not explain those calculations…

Porter, Sarah E. G.; Barber, Amorette E.; Colella, Olivia K.; Roach, Tanya D. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
The MicRoboCop project introduces chemistry students to the concepts and protocols of synthetic biology. MicRoboCop is a biosensor that has been designed for unique applications in forensic chemistry. The lab is carried out in collaboration with an instructor teaching a genetics course. Students in the biology course synthesize biosensors using…

Vishnumolakala, Venkat Rao; Southam, Daniel C.; Treagust, David F.; Mocerino, Mauro; Qureshi, Sheila – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
This one-semester, mixed methods study underpinning social cognition and theory of planned behaviour investigated the attitudes, self-efficacy, and experiences of 559 first year undergraduate chemistry students from two cohorts in modified process-oriented guided inquiry learning (POGIL) classes. Versions of attitude toward the study of chemistry…

Schultz, M.; Lawrie, G. A.; Bailey, C. H.; Dargaville, B. L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
An established tool for collating secondary teachers' pedagogical content knowledge (Loughran's CoRe) has been adapted for use by tertiary educators. Chemistry lecturers with a range of levels of experience were invited to participate in workshops through which the tool was piloted, refined and applied. We now present this refined tool for the…

Bayrak, Ramis; Gürses, Ahmet – World Journal of Education, 2020
The aim of the study is to investigate the attitudes of prospective science teachers towards the use of problem-based learning methods in the learning of concepts related to the subject of solids, and their opinions on its role in academic success, science process skills and the chemistry course. The study group consists of 83 prospective teachers…

Abell, Timothy N.; Bretz, Stacey Lowery – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
The Enthalpy and Entropy in Dissolution and Precipitation Inventory (E2DPI) has been developed to measure student understanding of the dissolution of ionic solutes, aqueous precipitation reactions, and the enthalpy and entropy changes that accompany these processes. The E[subscript 2]DPI was designed using a mixed-methods protocol, such that the…
