Rushton, Elizabeth A. C.; Reiss, Michael J. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
We explore the professional identities of UK-based secondary science teachers who actively participated in science research for at least six months. The study uses thematic analysis to analyse semi-structured interviews with 17 participants across England and Scotland, from a variety of educational/socio-economic contexts. We found that through…

Wang, Yan; Lavonen, Jari; Tirri, Kirsi – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This research compared how the scientific literacy-related goals of the current Chinese and Finnish national science curricula at primary school level are actualised using a revised Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) scientific literacy framework in the content analysis of the curricula. The content of the curricula focuses…

Karakolidis, Anastasios; Pitsia, Vasiliki; Emvalotis, Anastassios – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The importance of motivation-related factors in shaping students' academic achievement across a range of areas, including science, has been consistently acknowledged by the existing research literature. In an effort to improve students' science achievement, many education systems put particular emphasis on the enhancement of intrinsic (i.e.…

Malkiewich, Laura J.; Chase, Catherine C. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Transfer is an important outcome of science and engineering education, but little work has explored factors that facilitate transfer of science concepts from engineering tasks. The transfer literature suggests that noticing deep structure is critical for transfer, but students often fail to do so in engineering tasks. This case study investigates…

Vojír, Karel; Rusek, Martin – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The number of science education research papers has been rapidly rising in recent years. This number has been particularly influenced by researchers from non-English speaking countries who contribute to the field. With this number of papers, literature reviews gain in importance as they help researchers more easily orient themselves in problem…

Le Hebel, Florence; Tiberghien, Andrée; Montpied, Pascale; Fontanieu, Valérie – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study focuses on the teachers' predictions of the students' performances -- in particular the middle-low achievers -- while solving tasks testing inquiry competencies. The tasks come from PISA science. More specifically we study science teachers' predictions for several aspects: levels of difficulty of the tasks, the potential sources of…

Vorholzer, Andreas; von Aufschnaiter, Claudia – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Inquiry-based instruction is an important teaching strategy in science education that can be implemented to achieve different learning goals (e.g. the learning of science content or of inquiry skills and strategies). Inquiry-based instruction is often combined with guidance attempting to assist students to effectively engage in inquiry activities…

Levrini, Olivia; Tasquier, Giulia; Branchetti, Laura; Barelli, Eleonora – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Can science teaching contribute to developing skills for managing uncertainty towards the future and projecting imagination forwards? If so, how? In this paper, we outline an approach to 'teach the future' through science education. In the first part, we describe a framework that has been constructed to orient the design of teaching modules…

Millar, Victoria; Toscano, Maurizio; van Driel, Jan; Stevenson, Emma; Nelson, Chloë; Kenyon, Clare – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
There is a concern in many countries with participation rates in science. One response to this has been a proliferation of university run science outreach programs that aim to both engage and retain students in science. Previous studies of outreach programs have tended to take into account the perspectives of just a few stakeholders in the…

Schizas, Dimitrios; Papatheodorou, Efimia; Stamou, George – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The present study explores how in-service secondary education Greek biology teachers understand aspects of the concept of ecosystem under the assumption that the ecosystem is an ill-defined concept. If it is to be considered a holistic entity, the ecosystem acquires its definitional features within the ecological field of systems ecology, which…

Lin, Xiao-Fan; Tang, Dandan; Lin, Xuanjun; Liang, Zhong-Mei; Tsai, Chin-Chung – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study aimed to explore the relationships between students' perceived learning practices and associated self-efficacies regarding mobile-assisted seamless science learning. The learning practices for mobile-assisted seamless science learning questionnaire was developed with three scales that denote learning supported by mobile technology.…

Lee, Yeung Chung; Grace, Marcus; Rietdijk, Willeke; Lui, Yuet Chu – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The possible roles of culture, gender, and age-related factors in decision making about socioscientific issues (SSIs) have been underexplored. To study the impact of culture and cross-cultural understanding on students' decision-making, and how these impacts are possibly mediated by age and gender-related variables, 106 11-13 year old students and…

Vo, Tina; Forbes, Cory; Zangori, Laura; Schwarz, Christina V. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
To develop students' capacity for science and to engage them productively in science and engineering practices, science education reform efforts have focused on supporting teachers' development of conceptual understandings through engagement with both disciplinary content and practices, including science teaching at the primary level. One topic of…

Reinoso Tapia, Roberto; Delgado-Iglesias, Jaime; Fernández, Itziar – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
In this paper, we analyse the conceptual and procedural difficulties that university students of the Primary Education Degree have about respiratory physiology. To carry out this study a questionnaire was designed in order to assess the knowledge of these future teachers before and after studying the first subject of natural sciences of the…

Aivelo, Tuomas; Uitto, Anna – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Science education strives to increase interest in science and facilitate active citizenship. Thus, the aspects of personal and societal relevance are increasingly emphasised in science curricula. Still, little is known about how teachers choose content for their teaching, although their choices translate curricula to teaching practice. We explored…
