Akerson, Valarie L.; Carter, Ingrid S.; Park Rogers, Meredith A.; Pongsanon, Khemmawadee – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
In this mixed methods study, the researchers developed a video-based measure called a "Prediction Assessment" to determine preservice elementary teachers' abilities to predict students' scientific reasoning. The instrument is based on teachers' need to develop pedagogical content knowledge for teaching science. Developing a knowledge…

Bergeson, Kristi; Rosheim, Kay – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
This study explored 6th grade students reading of science text on the iPad to better understand how students with varying strengths of comprehending text and current academic abilities interpret text on their iPads. Our study sample compared three students with strong reading scores based on informal reading inventories, standardized tests, and…

Sadler, Troy D.; Foulk, Jaimie A.; Friedrichsen, Patricia J. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
Socio-scientific teaching and learning (SSI-TL) has been suggested as an effective approach for supporting meaningful learning in school contexts; however, limited tools exist to support the work of designing and implementing this approach. In this paper, we draw from a series of four design based research projects that have produced SSI…

Evagorou, Maria; Mauriz, Blanca Puig – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
Socioscientific issues are ill-structured problems that involve moral, ethical, and financial aspects, and lack clear-cut solutions. Teaching socioscientific issues necessarily puts a demand on teachers to draw on knowledge stemming from other domains, and to also appreciate, and present to the students the societal aspects of science. For new…

Karahan, Engin; Andzenge, Senenge T.; Roehrig, Gillian – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
This study introduces a critical response pedagogy (CRP), an arts-based critical technique to facilitate meaningful dialogue in focus group settings, to secondary school science education students to engage them in discussion about sediment and chemical load in their local river basin community. Using a holistic single case design, twenty-two 11th…

LeBlanc, Jennifer K.; Cavlazoglu, Baki; Scogin, Stephen C.; Stuessy, Carol L. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
This research examined how a teacher's discussion of the strands of scientific proficiencies changed over the course of an inquiry cycle as students engaged in a complex, technology-enhanced inquiry learning environment called "PlantingScience" (PS). Our research is descriptive in nature and attempts to deconstruct the complexity of…

Zhou, George; Xu, Judy – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
Inquiry-based teaching has become the most recommended approach in science education for a few decades; however, it is not a common practice yet in k-12 school classrooms. In order to prepare future teachers to teach science through inquiry, a Microteaching Lesson Study (MLS) approach was employed in our science methods courses. Instead of asking…

Celik, Harun – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
In science teaching, metaphors are important tools for understanding meaningful learning and conceptual formation by the help of daily life language. This study aims to evaluate how the concepts of heat, temperature and energy are perceived by students in secondary school science classes and how the perceptions of these concepts vary in terms of…

Metin, Duygu; Ertepinar, Hamide – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
The purposes of the present study are to elicit pre-service elementary science teachers' scientific and pseudoscientific beliefs about earthquake and to make inferences about their understandings of science. Although the subject of earthquake is not a pseudoscientific area, some pseudoscientific beliefs related to earthquake were used in this…

Kiray, Seyit Ahmet – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
The purpose of this study is to reveal the pre-service science teachers' difficulties about the concept of atoms. The data was collected from two different sources: The Draw an Atom Test (DAAT) and face-to-face interviews. Draw an atom test (DAAT) were administered to the 142 science teacher candidates. To elaborate the results, the researcher…

Yildiz, Sevda Goktepe; Korpeoglu, Seda Goktepe – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
In recent years, WebQuests have received a great deal of attention and have been used effectively in teaching-learning process in various courses. In this study, a WebQuest that can be applicable in teaching topological concepts for undergraduate level students was prepared. A number of topological concepts, such as countability, infinity, and…

Winn, Kathleen M.; Mi Choi, Kyong; Hand, Brian – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
STEM education is a current focus of many educators and policymakers and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) with the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM) are foundational documents driving curricular and instructional decision making for teachers and students in K-8 classrooms across the United States. Thus, practitioners…

Akcay, Behiye; Akcay, Hakan – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2015
The study reports on an investigation about the impact of science-technology-society (STS) instruction on middle school student understanding of the nature of science (NOS) and attitudes toward science compared to students taught by the same teacher using traditional textbook-oriented instruction. Eight lead teachers used STS instruction an…

Van Eaton, Grant; Clark, Douglas B.; Smith, Blaine E. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2015
Students playing digital learning games in the classroom rarely play alone, even in digital games that are ostensibly "single-player" games. This study explores the patterns of physics reasoning that emerge in face-to-face and online forum collaboration while students play a physics-focused educational game in their classroom. We…

Killingsworth, Stephen S.; Clark, Douglas B.; Adams, Deanne M. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2015
Previous research has demonstrated the efficacy of two explanation-based approaches for increasing learning in educational games. The first involves asking students to explain their answers (self-explanation) and the second involves providing correct explanations (explanatory feedback). This study (1) compared self-explanation and explanatory…
