Smith, Emma; White, Patrick – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Problems with the supply of highly skilled science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workers have been reported by employers and governments for many decades, in the UK, the USA, and elsewhere. This paper presents some key findings from a project funded by the Nuffield Foundation that examined patterns of education and employment…

Zhao, Yong – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This paper is a caution to the overemphasis on STEM in schools. Human talents and interests are extremely diverse for all sorts of reasons (nature via nurture). However, not all talents and skills have equal utility value in all societies. Thus, societies tend to suppress some and support others (via education or social policies). STEM represents…

Hill, Christopher T. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
In this paper, I briefly review the concept of the Post-Scientific Society and then present some of the confirming evidence for the aptness of the concept. This leads to important implications for how we should think about education and workforce development in the twenty-first century. Both require the incorporation of a very high cognitive level…

Suter, Larry E.; Camilli, Gregory – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Comparisons of US student achievement to other countries, conducted since the 1960s, have received extensive media coverage in the USA. Policy studies have cited these comparisons as evidence that the quality of US educational performance in mathematics and science requires federal intervention. Policy makers have been particularly concerned that…

Hira, Ron – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Outsourcing is a business strategy to cut costs by relocating jobs from high-cost countries, like the USA, to low-cost ones, like India. The practice involves moving the jobs and transferring knowledge, technologies, and capabilities. Outsourcing has been growing in scale and scope in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) occupations,…

Salzman, Hal; Lieff Benderly, Beryl – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
The relationship between education policy and workforce policy has long been uneasy. It is widely believed in many quarters of American society that the U.S. education system is in decline and, what's more, that it bears significant responsibility for a wide range of social ills, including stagnant wages, increasing inequality, high unemployment,…

Mills, Reece; Tomas, Louisa; Lewthwaite, Brian – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
There is a need for research-informed instructional approaches that promote school students' deep conceptual understanding of abstract geological concepts. Given that a type of learner-constructed stop-motion animation, 'slowmation', has been shown to offer affordances for learning in science preservice teacher education, we extended its…

Tan, Michael – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
When considering science education within the makerspace (engineering workshop) context, insufficient attention may be paid to the cultural models organising the learning activity in such spaces. Too often, learning is imagined to be orchestrated by instructors, and students are supposed to passively respond to activities and events planned on…

Cuperman, Dan; Verner, Igor M. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This article considers student analogical reasoning associated with learning practice in creating bio-inspired robots. The study was in the framework of an outreach course for middle school students. Fifty eighth and ninth graders performed inquiries into behavior and locomotion of snakes and designed robotic models using the BIOLOID robot…

Lie, Richard; Selcen Guzey, S.; Moore, Tamara J. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Recent reforms in education call for science teachers to incorporate STEM concepts into their curricula. This study explores the association among student and teacher demographics, and student learning of engineering content and attitudes towards STEM after participation in an elementary or middle school engineering-based science curricula.…

Peppler, Kylie; Wohlwend, Karen; Thompson, Naomi; Tan, Verily; Thomas, AnnMarie – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
While circuitry lessons have traditionally been first introduced in late elementary school, they remain challenging conceptually for undergraduates in physics and engineering courses. Seeking to provide a higher quality and earlier introduction to circuitry learning for young children (ages 3-5), this paper investigates the affordances of…

Johnson, Emily Kuzneski – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This study employed mixed methods to investigate the efficacy of scaffolding self-regulated learning prompts within a whole-body educational game, "Waves." This game was designed to teach middle school-aged children basic concepts of waves by moving their bodies to mimic the motions of waves, physically experiencing different velocities…

Srisawasdi, Niwat; Panjaburee, Patcharin – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Many studies have used the potential of computer games to promote students' attitudes toward learning and increase their learning performance. A few studies have transformed scientific content into computer games or developed games with scientific content. In this paper, we employed students' common misconceptions of chemistry regarding the…

Kapici, Hasan Ozgur; Akcay, Hakan; de Jong, Ton – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Although hands-on laboratory experiments are traditionally used in schools, virtual laboratories have entered today's classrooms, due to their specific affordances. In this study, we compared the effect of using hands-on and virtual laboratories in isolation to two different combinations on middle school (7th grade) students' acquisition of…

Chu, Man-Wai; Leighton, Jacqueline P. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Digitally simulated laboratory assessments (DSLAs) may be used to measure competencies such as problem solving and scientific inquiry because they provide an environment that allows the process of learning to be captured. These assessments provide many benefits that are superior to traditional hands-on laboratory tasks; as such, it is important to…
