Odden, Tor Ole B.; Russ, Rosemary S. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Current science education reforms highlight the importance of students making sense of scientific ideas. While research has studied how to support sensemaking in classrooms, we still know very little about what drives students to pursue and persist in it on their own. In this article, we use a set of parallel case studies of undergraduate students…

Liu, Shu-Chiu – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Futures thinking, or foresight, is increasingly recognised as a key element in science and environmental education. We integrated a futures thinking activity into an undergraduate general science course in Taiwan by using an online thinking and discussion tool that provides scaffolding questions to help students think systematically about future…

Tretter, Thomas R.; Ardasheva, Yuliya; Morrison, Judith A.; Karin Roo, Anna – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study investigated ways to foster positive science attitudes among newcomer first-year middle school English learners (n = 79) under two conditions: (1) "Extended Science + Extended Literacy" (planetarium-based visualisations + vocabulary + comic and trade books) and (2) "Extended Science + Literacy" (planetarium-based…

Kirbulut, Zubeyde Demet; Uzuntiryaki-Kondakci, Esen – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Current studies reveal that meta-level variables are very important in learning; however, little research has been devoted to the role of metaconceptual and meta-affective variables on student achievement. With the aim of filling this gap in the literature, the present study investigated the relationship between metavariables (metaconceptual…

Jansen, Susanne; Knippels, Marie-Christine P. J.; van Joolingen, Wouter R. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Models are very important tools when learning and communicating about science. Models used in secondary school biology education range from concrete scale models, such as a model of a skeleton, to abstract concept-process models, such as a visualisation of meiosis. Understanding these concept-process models requires a profound understanding of the…

Schenk, Linda; Hamza, Karim M.; Enghag, Margareta; Lundegård, Iann; Arvanitis, Leena; Haglund, Karin; Wojcik, Andrzej – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The present paper takes its point of departure in risk being a relevant content for science education, and that there are many different approaches to how to incorporate it. By reviewing the academic literature on the use and definitions of risk from fields such as engineering, linguistics and philosophy, we identified key elements of the risk…

Khishfe, Rola – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
It is important to question the generalizability of the knowledge about the nature of science (NOS), and thus know whether the knowledge about NOS can be transferred to various contexts. As such, the purpose of this study was to investigate whether students were able to transfer their acquired NOS understandings into contexts that vary in their…

Lan, Shu-Wen; de Oliveira, Luciana C. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Recent science-education reforms have targeted students' ability to 'talk science', especially in science classrooms. Prior research has shown that participation in scientific discourse in class is one of the most challenging scientific-literacy tasks, and particularly complex for English language learners (ELLs) at the upper elementary level. The…

van der Graaf, Joep; van de Sande, Eva; Gijsel, Martine; Segers, Eliane – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Inquiry-based lessons have been demonstrated to improve children's scientific thinking (i.e. reasoning abilities and domain-specific knowledge). Although empirical evidence shows that inquiry-based learning requires instruction, research comes from two approaches that have not been bridged yet: direct instruction of scientific reasoning and…

Özmen, Kübra; Özdemir, Ömer Faruk – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study was designed to develop an assessment tool to measure high school students' personal epistemology (PE) in the physics domain by using validation processes. Based on theoretical foundations of PE, the PPEQ was conceptualised on six hypothetical dimensions: structure of knowledge [SK], justification of knowledge and knowing [JK],…

Girwidz, Raimund; Thoms, Lars-Jochen; Pol, Henk; López, Víctor; Michelini, Marisa; Stefanel, Alberto; Greczylo, Tomasz; Müller, Andreas; Gregorcic, Bor; Hömöstrei, Mihály – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Teacher-oriented journals provide many ideas for practical use of multimedia in physics teaching and learning. However, they are often written in their respective native languages. Moreover, having 24 official languages in the European Union is a huge barrier to the exchange of teaching and learning material. Knowledge about what is discussed in…

Hong, Jon-Chao; Chang, Chun-Hsing; Tsai, Chi-Ruei; Tai, Kai-Hsin – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Interest in educational research can be categorised into situational interest (SI) and individual interest (II); the sequential phases of interest development for learning have long been recognised as triggered SI, maintained SI, emerging II, and well-developed II. This study proposes an interest development model which involves SI and II mentally…

Balta, Nuri; Asikainen, Mervi A. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The aim of this study was to characterise thoroughly the differences between Physics Olympiad competitors' and regular students' successes and approaches in relation to counterintuitive dynamics problems (CDPs) in order to discover some of the differences between skilled problem-solvers and those with fewer such skills. A total of 23 Physics…

Bonnette, Rachel N.; Crowley, Kevin; Schunn, Christian D. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Ages 10-14 mark a period in which children develop a strong sense of whether science is 'for them,' a time that typically coincides with the start of middle school in the United States and their first exposure to more rigorous science classes and testing. Experiences with science in and out of school can shape children's motivation to choose…

Shaban, Yara; Wilkerson, Michelle Hoda – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Science educators demonstrated that students' framings -- their expectations of what is going on -- influence how they participate, and what science knowledge they reveal, in clinical interviews. This paper complements research that explores how interviewers are likely to affect student framings, by exploring how subtler interactions can lead…
