Mutton, Troy; Ridley, Damon D. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Overall, the major chemical information retrieval products Reaxys and SciFinder have several similarities such as numbers of document records, numbers of characterized substances (counting the PubChem Compounds integrated in Reaxys), and, possibly, numbers of different chemical reactions. Reaxys has well over 100 times the number of experimental…

Vega Garzón, Juan Carlos; Magrini, Marcio Luiz; Galembeck, Eduardo – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
Understanding metabolism and metabolic pathways constitutes one of the central aims for students of biological sciences. Learning metabolic pathways should be focused on the understanding of general concepts and core principles. New technologies such Augmented Reality (AR) have shown potential to improve assimilation of biochemistry abstract…

Mao, Xiulin; Harring, Jeffrey R.; Hancock, Gregory R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2015
Latent interaction models have motivated a great deal of methodological research, mainly in the area of estimating such models. Product-indicator methods have been shown to be competitive with other methods of estimation in terms of parameter bias and standard error accuracy, and their continued popularity in empirical studies is due, in part, to…

Shimizu, Emily A.; Cory, Brett; Hoang, Johnson; Castro, Giovanni G.; Jung, Michael F.; Vosburg, David A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A green laboratory experiment has been developed in which students perform an aqueous oxidation/cycloaddition reaction to convert salicyl alcohol into a pentacyclic diepoxydione that is readily isolated by filtration. Drawing on their knowledge of periodate-mediated 1,2-diol cleavage, students propose a mechanism for the oxidation of salicyl…

Hoang, Giang T.; Kubo, Tomohiro; Young, Victor G., Jr.; Kautzky, Jacob A.; Wissinger, Jane E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
Two introductory organic chemistry laboratory experiments are described based on the Diels-Alder reaction of 2,3,4,5-tetraphenylcyclopentadienone, which is synthesized prior to or in a one-pot reaction, with styrene. Students are presented with three possible products, the "endo" and "exo" diastereomers and the decarbonylated…

Lu, Guo-ping; Chen, Fei; Cai, Chun – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
The nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction and thia-Michael addition using thiourea as an odorless, cheap, and easy-to-handle sulfur source in water are described, which can be used to teach upper-division undergraduates the role of thiourea in the formation of C-S bonds and the principles of green chemistry. The use of a cheap, nontoxic…

Omura, Ayano – Pedagogical Research, 2019
Anatomical education is very important in understanding the internal structure of the body and the mechanism of life, especially for the medical profession, including nursing. However, in Japan, students have a few opportunities of getting anatomical education using animals before they enter university. The different step-by-step anatomical…

Hawkins, Lisa K.; Razali, Abu Bakar – Language Arts, 2012
From penmanship, to product, to process...this article recounts 100 years of instructional practice in the US elementary writing classroom through the voices of past teaching manuals and curriculum guides. This particular tale begins at the turn of the 20th century--a time when the elementary school was firmly established in the country, and…

Roscales, Silvia; Csákÿ, Aurelio G. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A method for the synthesis of flufenamic acid, a nonstereoidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the anthranilate family (fenams), is described as an experiment for the upper-division undergraduate organic chemistry laboratory. The key step is the formation of the diarylamine moiety of flufenamic acid by a novel reaction consisting of the coupling…

Grimes, Paul; McDonald, Scott; van Kampen, Paul – Science Education, 2019
Sense-making and argumentation are two common ways to frame student discourse. The former emphasizes the process of students coming to an understanding, the latter the logical and rhetorical structure of the product. When we investigated the discourse of two groups of preservice science teachers in an environment that fosters productive…

Vrba, Tony; Mitchell, Kerry – Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, 2019
Today's students expect more than lectures more from higher education. Contemporary students are searching for the education they need to advance in the workplace, though they want their education to be engaging, applicable, and relevant to the real-world. Technology and innovation are in the news almost every day and people automatically think…

Sanahuja, Aida; Moliner, Odet; Moliner, Lidón – Educational Research, 2020
Background: In order to offer all students the opportunity to progress and grow to their full potential, teachers must positively recognise and value the different expressions of diversity of all the class members. One of the biggest educational challenges that teachers face today is how to address classroom practices from a truly inclusive and…

Ölgen, Burcu – Design and Technology Education, 2020
In order to improve creative thinking in architectural design education, it is useful to interact with other disciplines such as music. There are many works of this interdisciplinary approach between architecture and music in the literature. These studies focus on new methods of creating forms with music for basic architectural education. The…

Subramaniam, Karthigeyan; Esprívalo Harrell, Pamela – Educational Research, 2015
Background: Literature contends that a teacher's knowledge of concept map-based tasks influence how their students perceive the task and execute the creation of acceptable concept maps. Teachers who are skilled concept mappers are able to (1) understand and apply the operational terms to construct a hierarchical/non-hierarchical concept map; (2)…
