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…

Dagher, Zoubeida R.; Erduran, Sibel – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
The purpose of this commentary on Hodson and Wong's (2017, this issue) article is to clarify the merits of the expanded family resemblance approach (FRA) to science education, briefly alluded to in their article, and to discuss the implications of this approach relative to the question of demarcation they raise. In clarifying the merits of the…

Alsop, Steve; Gardner, Sam – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
In this response essay we offer some critical comments on the nature of science (NOS) and thereby hopefully extend Hodson and Wong's (2017, this issue) argument concerning "understanding scientific practice." Drawing on selected theorising in science and technology studies (STS), we argue that NOS needs to take much more seriously…

Kim, Eun-Ji Amy; Asghar, Anila; Jordan, Steven – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
What is traditional ecological knowledge? In many disciplines, including science education, anthropology, and resource management, it has been conflated with Indigenous knowledges, which has contributed to misunderstandings. This article explores the history of traditional ecological knowledge and examines its contemporary conceptualizations in…

Shanahan, Marie-Claire; Carol-Ann Burke, Lydia E.; Francis, Krista – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
The term "STEM," used to describe science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, has come to prominence in Canada over the last decade, raising questions about its meaning. Here we examine its history in the United States and the sociopolitical commitments that have, in parallel, guided science education in Canada. The divergent…

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…

Kim, Eun-Ji Amy; Dionne, Liliane – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014
Though science education has been prominent in the Canadian educational system, researchers increasingly recognize the scientific and educational value of integrating traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) into their curriculum. Despite national strategies to integrate TEK, Canada has yet to initiate a comprehensive study of its prevalence and…

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…

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…

Pedretti, Erminia; Bellomo, Katherine – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2013
New science curricula in Ontario position science, technology, society, and environment (STSE) objectives at the fore of all science courses. A professional learning community (PLC) consisting of 24 elementary teachers and a facilitation team was established to assist teachers in meeting the challenges of STSE education. Specifically, we examine…

Blades, David – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2012
In her article, "The Scientification of Skin Whitening and the Entrepreneurial University- Linked Corporate Scientific Officer," published in this issue, Amina Mire (2012) deconstructs the tacit investments implicit in such discourses of beauty, in particular those linked to cosmetic products that purport to fight the "war on aging" through the…

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…
