Tomažic, Iztok; Hummel, Eberhard; Schrenk, Marcus; Rupnik, Tina; Randler, Christoph – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
The use of live animals in instruction plays an important role in biological education, with the intention that attitudes and emotions should be positively influenced. To date, studies in this field have given mixed results, and there has certainly been a lack of studies on student attitudes and knowledge of poisonous and venomous animals. This…

Eley, Cv; Weston-Price, S.; Young, V. l.; Hoekstra, B.; Gadhia, T.; Muirhead, V.; Robinson, L.; Pine, C.; McNulty, Cam – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
Introduction: Tooth decay is the most common reason for non-emergency hospital admissions in 5-9 year olds. As such, it is included in the England school curriculum at 8-9 years to facilitate improved oral hygiene and prevent tooth decay. Aim: Measure student and teacher baseline oral hygiene knowledge; determine effect of the e-Bug oral hygiene…

Cascarosa, Esther; Mazas, Beatriz; Peña, Begoña Martínez; Quílez, María José Gil – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
The present work was carried out with students of compulsory secondary education. The research was prompted by the idea that scientific vocation among young people is shrinking and that this has a significant impact on our society. Consequently, a science project based on the students' interests was proposed. They were able to work as a single…

Torkar, Gregor; Gnidovec, Tanja; Tunnicliffe, Sue Dale; Tomažic, Iztok – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Many children learn about and experience animals in the everyday environment where they live and attend school. One way to obtain information about children's understanding of concepts or phenomena is by using their drawings in combination with written responses or interviews. This study assesses how much Slovenian students 10-15 years old (in…

Gardner, Grant E.; Ellen Lohr, Mary; Bartos, Stephen; Reid, Joshua W. – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
One of the key agendas for the emerging field of disciplinary-based education research is the evaluation of the trajectory of disciplinary knowledge development from novice to expert. However, with the ongoing promotion of student-centered and collaborative undergraduate science classrooms, it is unknown how peer discourse during these exercises…

Borsos, Eva – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
This study presents a new technique, the "Which plant am I?" game, which helps to increase pupils' plant knowledge, while motivate them to become familiar with more plants. On the other hand pupils' plant knowledge was tested in Serbia. The "Which Plant Am I?" game was tested with two groups of pupils (in average 11 years old).…

Jones, Harriet L.; Green, Jon R.; Prendergast, John; Scott, Jon – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
The current A-level biology curriculum includes a broad coverage of all the biosciences which demands knowledge of a wide range of biological vocabulary. Students (n = 184) from two UK universities were presented with a list of vocabulary, associated with a 'Revise Biology' text which highlighted key terms that students should know. Lecturers…

Schmidt, Hiemke K. – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Researchers agree that an interdisciplinary approach should be taken to address bioethical issues at school. Little is known about the knowledge students need to be able to understand and take part in discussions about these issues. We investigate the relationship between 79 students' prior knowledge in various domains and their ability to recall…

Wyner, Yael; Blatt, Erica – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
This study used sociocultural learning theory to better understand how middle and high school environmental science and biology students and pre- and in-service science teachers connect the daily life activity of eating to the food web model learned in school. We sought to understand how student and teacher perceptions of the environment and their…
