Hodson, Derek; Wong, Siu Ling – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
Nature of science (NOS) is now a well-established focus of science education and a key element in defining scientific literacy. In recent years, a particular specification of NOS, often described as "the consensus view," has become very influential and has gained ready acceptance in many countries around the world as a template for…

DeCoito, Isha – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
Across Canada many initiatives have been initiated to generate more interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education; however, no single or comprehensive overview has been conducted that takes into account the impact of these STEM initiatives on teaching/learning outcomes in K-12 education. This knowledge synthesis of…

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
Education appears to be in a perpetual crisis. In this article, I suggest that one of the key contributing factors in educational crisis is the institution of schooling, which re/produces the failures to learn and, thereby, contributes to the re/production of inequities that it (schooling) is supposed to overcome. Ideologies and practices intended…

Yacoubian, Hagop A. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
In this article, I introduce a framework for guiding future citizens to think critically about nature of science (NOS) and "with" NOS as they engage in socioscientific decision making. The framework, referred to as the critical thinking--nature of science (CT-NOS) framework, explicates and targets both NOS as a learning objective and NOS…

Hodson, Derek – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
It is noted that the "Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education" (CJSMTE) was founded with the support of a donation of $1.0 million from the Imperial Oil Charitable Foundation. Four goals were uppermost in the thinking behind the journal: first, it should be bilingual; second, it should be cross-disciplinary;…

Hodson, Derek – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2013
This article addresses some of the curriculum implications of adopting a socioscientific issues (SSIs)-oriented approach to science education, including (a) the need to provide scientific knowledge on a need-to-know basis and adapted to the complexity, multidimensionality, and fluidity of real-world situations and the constraints of particular…

Kanhadilok, Peeranut; Watts, Mike – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2013
This article focuses on some of the intersections of two worldviews: Western modern science and a Buddhism-based way of life in Thailand. It enters the debate on the place and practice of Indigenous forms of knowledge and the clashes with formal science education curricula. Our goal is "balanced bi-gnosis": the possession of, and…

Pouliot, Chantal – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2012
In this article we discuss research that was conducted as part of a project on citizen science education. We present the research and some of the results, and then take a position on the pertinence of examining, in science classes, questions on citizen participation in socio-technical debates and the roles and capacities of the social actors…

Levav-Waynberg, Anat; Leikin, Roza – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2012
The article demonstrates that multiple solution tasks (MSTs) in the context of geometry can serve as a research instrument for evaluating geometry knowledge and creativity. Geometry knowledge is evaluated based on the correctness and connectedness of solutions, whereas creativity is evaluated based on a combination of fluency, flexibility, and…

Rivard, Leonard P.; Cormier, Marianne; Turnbull, Miles – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2012
This article proposes strategies and practices that create rich discursive spaces for learning science in French immersion contexts. These strategies and practices are drawn from a variety of scholarly sources; here we adapt them to reading in the French immersion science classroom. The strategies and practices are designed for use in a…
