Musa Dikmenli; Vedat Kadir Ozkan; Selda Kilic; Osman Cardak – Journal of Education in Science, Environment and Health, 2024
As a result of human beings' activities to dominate nature and transform it for their own benefit as they continue to advance in science and technology, environmental problems such as climate change have become the biggest threat faced by the biosphere in the current century. One of the biggest problems of humanity today is the scarcity of water…

Gericke, Niklas; Mc Ewen, Birgitta – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2023
The aim of this study is to define epigenetic literacy and describe how it can be included in school biology. Epigenetics is a new field of research in biology with abundant societal consequences and conceptual implications on how genetics is understood. Epigenetics explains how genes are regulated, thereby clarifying cell differentiation, and…

Sabrina D. Stanley; William Boden Robertson – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2024
This study analyzed articles from the last four years regarding how science education research is framed and discussed as qualitative research. The research question that guided this study was: "To what extent do qualitative secondary science teaching research publications reflect high-quality practices found in mainstream methodological…

Lyons, Edward – Journal for Leadership and Instruction, 2022
The purpose of this article is to provide teachers of science scientific definitions and illustrations to facilitate the teaching of cosmology. Secondary school science teachers can use the illustrations and their citations to pose questions to their students and to guide their students to accessible digital sites where the students can explore…

Lu Cao; Polly K. Lai; Hongzhi Yang – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2024
This study explored the use of an innovative instructional approach called Productive Failure (PF) to design an educational game and its support. The study then examined the effects of two different types of instruction--PF vs. Direct Instruction (DI)--on learning genetics and relevant mathematical knowledge in a Game-Based Learning (GBL)…

Berntsen, Madelene Losvik; Vik, Camilla Berge; Lykknes, Annette – Science & Education, 2023
The French natural philosopher Henri Victor Regnault (1810-1878) was one of many researchers who contributed to the development of the thermometer in the 19th century. In this paper, we use an example from Regnault's work to explore how the history of thermometry can provide a context for teaching upper-secondary chemistry students about the…

Kiemeneij, Wilbert; de Putter, Lesley; Koopman, Maaike – Physics Education, 2023
Physics education in secondary schools can include biophysics topics as electives. An open simulation based on a simulation like Minecraft for learning the workings of the action potential in human cells was designed and tested for students in upper secondary physics education. In small design and test cycles both the simulation engine and the…

Kok-Sing Tang – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2024
Background: With a growing new materialism paradigm and research on multimodality, there is an increasing attention on the role of material objects in science teaching and learning. However, there is currently no available framework, coding scheme, or method of inquiry to specifically analyze the use of material objects in science meaning-making.…

Linda Hämmerle; Daniela Hlavka; Michael Kiehn; Peter Pany; Peter Lampert – American Biology Teacher, 2024
Especially within the light of the current loss of biodiversity, we want our students to gain a better understanding of the issues at stake in order to take action and support plants and their pollinators. Many educational approaches focus on honeybees, disregarding the vast diversity in the context of pollination systems and the complex…

Till Schmäing; Norbert Grotjohann – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2024
Modern, student-oriented teaching can be characterized by the promotion of autonomy and interest. In the school subject of biology, it is necessary to focus on different ecosystems from different aspects. One ecosystem that has hardly been considered in biology didactics so far is the UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea. Therefore, this study…

Yeh, Yi-Fen; Dhurumraj, Thasmai; Ramnarain, Umesh – Science & Education, 2023
Developing students' understanding of and about science is an important educational goal. Learning the nature of science (NOS) has been recognized as a critical component of science literacy, affecting how students (our future citizens) make informed decisions. Textbooks can be useful teaching materials if the content presented aligns with…

Tóth, Kristóf; Tél, Tamás – Physics Education, 2023
We present a new secondary school teaching method of quantum uncertainties of two-state systems. Intending to be a material teachable in schools, only two-state systems described by real numbers can be considered. An elementary argumentation based on school statistics leads to the identification of the uncertainty of a physical quantity in such…

Spiecker, Henrike; Bitzenbauer, Philipp – Physics Education, 2022
Why does a raindrop on a window pane show an image of the environment that is turned upside-down? And why does vision go blurry underwater, but is perfectly clear with diving goggles? Our everyday life is rich in optical phenomena. Unfortunately, these phenomena often play a subordinate role in Optics teaching, compared to ray constructions or…

Ha, Hyejin; Jang, Taehun; Sohn, Sang Ho; Kim, Junghwa – Physics Teacher, 2022
A solenoid is a coil wound many times on a cylinder of length greater than its diameter. Solenoids are mainly used as electromagnets, because a magnetic field is formed when current flows through a solenoid. The solenoid described in secondary school and university textbooks is a single-layered solenoid. Further, textbooks and papers focusing on…

Jonathan Robert Bowers – ProQuest LLC, 2024
To make sense of our interconnected and algorithm driven world, students increasingly need proficiency with computational thinking (CT), systems thinking (ST), and computational modeling. One aspect of computational modeling that can support students with CT, ST, and modeling is testing and debugging. Testing and debugging enables students to…
