Wasserman, Nicholas H. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
This article explores the potential for aspects of abstract algebra to be influential for the teaching of school algebra (and early algebra). Using national standards for analysis, four primary areas common in school mathematics--and their progression across elementary, middle, and secondary mathematics--where teaching may be transformed by…

Weinstein, Matthew; Blades, David; Gleason, Shannon C. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
Internationally, STEM has become a slogan for organizing new discourses and practices in science education. In the form of a three-act play, we argue that STEM as social engineering orients and organizes school science education curriculum development in directions of scientific innovation and engineering that reinforce and legitimize a neoliberal…

Blades, David – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
This special issue of the "Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education" invokes questions intended to further the discourse of citizenship in science and mathematics education, such as, How do we define "citizen" and "democracy"? Is our call for student action hypocritical? Does positioning…

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…

Mereku, Damian Kofi; Mereku, Cosmas Worlanyo Kofi – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
The PanAfrican Research Agenda on the Pedagogical Integration of information and communication technology (ICT; PanAf) research project was initiated in 2006 to support initiatives in African countries to integrate ICT into teaching and learning through the frequent collection and analysis of data on ICT usage. The article examines the congruence…

Savard, Annie – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014
This article presents a study done in an elementary mathematics methods course that focused on the transition of novice teachers' epistemological stances: former elementary student, university student, and teacher stances. In order to help them develop the teacher stance, we designed a three-phase activity, where two phases took place inside…

Steele, Astrid – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014
The author compares two frameworks, one proposed by Sauvé (2005) for environmental education (EE) and the other prepared by Pedretti and Nazir (2011) for Science, Technology, Society and Environment (STSE) education. With the aim of investigating the utility of the two frameworks as tools for analysis of science teaching practice, the author…

Mujawamariya, Donatille; Hujaleh, Filsan; Lima-Kerckhoff, Ashley – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014
The rapid diversification of communities in Ontario has necessitated the provincial government to reevaluate public school curriculums and policies to make schools more inclusive and reflective of its diverse population. This article critically analyzes the content of the latest revised science curricula for Grades 1 to 10 and assesses the degree…

Higgins, Marc – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014
Within Canadian science classrooms, Indigenous ways-of-knowing and ways-of-being continue to be underrepresented and undervalued. For Indigenous students, this often results in negative experiences and disparate achievement rates when compared to their non-Indigenous classmates. Recent decolonizing science education literature suggests critical…

Gadbois, Shannon A.; Haverstock, Nicole – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2012
Among new technologies, interactive whiteboards (IWBs) particularly seem to engage students and offer entertainment value that may make them highly beneficial for learning. This study examined 10 Grade 6 teachers' initial experiences and uses of IWBs for teaching science. Through interviews, classroom visits, and field notes, the outcomes…

Holm, Jennifer; Kajander, Ann – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2012
As part of a 5-year project that examined teachers' knowledge and beliefs about mathematics and teaching mathematics, interviews were conducted with preservice elementary teachers during their certification year. The transcripts of five of these sets of pretest/posttest interviews were chosen as illustrative of the significant challenges that…

Bencze, J. Lawrence; Sperling, Erin R. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2012
Progress has been made in addressing socioscientific issues, such as debates about merits of nuclear power, by encouraging school students to consider complex issues and take positions about them. We contend, however, that they also need to learn to take research-informed actions to address issues. In the study reported here, we concluded--based…

Preciado-Babb, Armando Paulino; Liljedahl, Peter – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2012
We present the perspectives of teachers and others involved in the collaborative design of teaching and learning artifacts across three cases: (a) an independent group participating in lesson study; (b) teachers participating in professional development programs; and (c) a district initiative for producing numeracy tasks. Among the results we…

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…
