Nancy Gans; Vivian Zohery; Joshua B. Jaffe; Anissa Ahmed; Luke Kim; Doug Lombardi – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
Science learning is an important part of the K-12 educational experience, as well as in the lives of students. This study considered students' science learning as they engaged in the instruction of scientific issues with social relevance. With classroom environments radically changing during the COVID-19 pandemic, our study adapted to teachers and…

Hamid Sanei; Jennifer B. Kahn; Rabia Yalcinkaya; Shiyan Jiang; Changzhao Wang – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
Data and computational literacies empower youth to be active participants and future leaders in our increasingly data-driven society. We conducted a design-based research project in which a small group (n = 5) of high school youth from diverse backgrounds learned how to code and create data visualizations and stories with public data about climate…

Beth A. Covitt; Kristin L. Gunckel; Alan Berkowitz; William W. Woessner; John Moore – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
Computational models are employed to study and respond to pressing environmental issues such as groundwater contamination. This use of computational models, which often involves algorithms and uncertainty that are hidden to the public, has implications for environmental science literacy. This study applies a design-based research approach to…

Mark H. Newton; Len A. Annetta; Denise M. Bressler – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
This exploratory study uses epistemic network analysis (ENA) to examine the use of extended reality (XR) technologies embedded in post-secondary classes, one in a traditional setting and the other a place-based setting, to examine climate change while utilizing a socioscientific issues (SSI) approach. One group used a virtual reality (VR)…

Silvia-Jessica Mostacedo-Marasovic; Amanda A. Olsen; Cory T. Forbes – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
Global climate change (GCC) is one of the greatest challenges of our age and a highly significant socio-scientific issue (SSI). Developing secondary students' understanding about the Earth's climate and GCC is critical for empowering future citizens and a key focus of the "Next Generation Science Standards" (NGSS Lead States, 2013). In…

Kimberly Carroll Steward; David Gosselin; Mark Chandler; Cory T. Forbes – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
Science education literature has highlighted socio-scientific issues (SSI) as an effective pedagogy for teaching science in a social and political context. SSI links science education and real-world problems to engage students in real-world issues, making it ideal for teaching global climate change (GCC). Additionally, technological advances have…

Jennifer L. Chiu; James P. Bywater; Tugba Karabiyik; Alejandra Magana; Corey Schimpf; Ying Ying Seah – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
Despite an increasing focus on integrating engineering design in K-12 settings, relatively few studies have investigated how to support students to engage in systematic processes to optimize the designs of their solutions. Emerging learning technologies such as computational models and simulations enable rapid feedback to learners about their…

Mirian Agus; Giovanni Bonaiuti; Arianna Marras – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
In recent years, numerous research studies have highlighted how teachers' perceptions of educational robotics (ER) and their sense of self-efficacy can influence the learning process. Although different instruments exist to investigate teachers' perspectives on ER, the Robotics Interest Questionnaire (RIQ) scale, developed within the Portuguese…

Terrell Lamont Strayhorn – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
This study tested the psychometric properties of the "Sense of Belonging in STEM" Scale (SOB-STEM), a new scale measuring students' subjective evaluation of their academic and social experiences in STEM learning contexts, primarily focusing on purposeful interpersonal interactions. Data from 758 college students were analyzed, yielding…

Frackson Mumba; Alexis Rutt; Reid Bailey; Laura Pottmeyer; Rachael van Aswegen; Jennie Chiu; John Ojeogwu – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
"The Framework for K-12 Science Education" and the Next Generation Science Standards require teachers to integrate engineering design into K-12 science teaching. However, many teachers have no formal preparation in engineering design and how to integrate it into science instruction. Furthermore, few models exist for preparing teachers in…

Fenglin Jia; Daner Sun; Chee-kit Looi – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
The use of artificial intelligence has played an important role in science teaching and learning. The purpose of this study was to fill a gap in the current review of research on AI in science education (AISE) in the early stage of education by systematically reviewing existing research in this area. This systematic review examined the trends and…

Liying Zhu; Daner Sun; Ma Luo; Weidong Liu; Song Xue – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
The laboratory plays a crucial role in science education. However, teacher education for pre-service teachers' design performance in the laboratory is still challenging. This study paved the way for redesigning traditional laboratory teaching into a student-centered approach: inquiry-based design thinking (IBDT). To investigate the impact of the…

Tyler S. Love; Doris Lee; Mary Napoli – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
The literature has documented a lack of daily instructional time dedicated to teaching science in comparison to mathematics and literacy in elementary education. Utilizing poetry has shown promise in increasing teachers' integration of science concepts, teaching literacy skills, improving student engagement, and fostering creativity. This study…
