de Vocht, Miikka; Laherto, Antti – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
In order to facilitate policy-driven reforms in science education, it is important to understand how teaching innovations diffuse among teachers and how that adoption process can be catalysed. Little is known about the set of attitudes that makes teachers early or late adopters. In this study, the Concerns-Based Adoption Model (C-BAM) was employed…

Potvin, Patrice; Hasni, Abdelkrim; Sy, Ousmane – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Nine secondary school teachers participated in a five day training program where they developed inquiry-based pedagogical interventions for their science classes. Student interest and self-concept in school science and technology were measured before and after the interventions. Increases in interest and self-concept were compared with the results…

Prediger, Susanne; Zindel, Carina – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This article combines different conceptualizations of teachers' diagnostic competence in listening to students' mathematical thinking processes on the levels of general perspectives, noticed aspects and activated didactic categories. An empirical study of 159 prospective mathematics teachers' diagnostic judgments investigated how these levels are…

Dyrberg, Nadia Rahbek; Michelsen, Claus – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The "study group concept" at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) was implemented to aid first year students' transitional challenges. A mentor (an older student) is affiliated each study group to facilitate productive group work, bring awareness to study habits, and share his/her own experiences with life as a student. The study…

Kotsari, Constantina; Smyrnaiou, Zacharoula – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The central roles that modelling plays in the processes of scientific enquiry and that models play as the outcomes of that enquiry are well established (Gilbert & Boulter, 1998). Besides, there are considerable similarities between the processes and outcomes of science and technology (Cinar, 2016). In this study, we discuss how the use of…

Nuangchalerm, Prasart – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Based on 10 preservice science teachers in 4 schools, this study presents a detailed analysis of how preservice teacher expectation interacts with school practicum and authentic classroom action of inquiry-based instruction. Classroom observation, lesson plan analysis, and interviews revealed that inquiry-based instruction in the expectation and…

O'Meara, Niamh; Fitzmaurice, Olivia; Johnson, Patrick – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Mathematics teacher educators in the University of Limerick became aware of a lack of conceptual understanding of key mathematics concepts of prospective secondary mathematics teachers through observation on teaching placement and in pedagogy lectures. A pilot study to enhance the conceptual understanding of prospective teachers was carried out…

Nousiainen, Maija; Koponen, Ismo T. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The concepts of electricity and magnetism in physics are complex and demanding to learn because their meaning builds through several different phenomenological areas. Each of the phenomenological areas adds a certain facet of the meaning of the concept. All standard physics textbooks discuss at least 1) force, 2) energy and work, and 3) electric…

Fyhn, Anne Birgitte – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Students in Norway and other countries experience vectors as a difficult topic. Four young skilled climbers, who all did well in mathematics at school, participated in the Vector Study (VS). They participated for free and each lesson lasted until the students decided it was over. The idea was to investigate how climbing may function as a basis for…

Potvin, Patrice – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This article presents recent research results in mental chronometry and neuroimaging that support the coexistence of multiple conceptions. It then presents and elaborates on six possible implications for an adherence to the coexistence claim within the context of scientific conceptual learning: (1) stop the war on misconceptions; (2) use a…

Robertson, Amy D.; Richards, Jennifer – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Being responsive to the substance of students' disciplinary thinking is central to current visions of reformed science teaching. Studies of classroom practice, however, show that this kind of teaching is relatively rare. In this paper, we use data from one cohort of university physics Learning Assistants (LAs) to illustrate what it looks like for…

Armagan, Fulya Öner; Keskin, Melike Özer; Akin, Beril Salman – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The purpose of this study was to determine the overall effectiveness of conceptual change texts (CCTs) on academic achievement and to find out if effectiveness was related to some characteristics of the study. It followed up a Meta-analysis research approach. 42 published and unpublished studies, published between 1995 and 2010, and 42 experiment…
