Aksit, Osman; Wiebe, Eric N. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Computational thinking (CT) and modeling are authentic practices that scientists and engineers use frequently in their daily work. Advances in computing technologies have further emphasized the centrality of modeling in science by making computationally enabled model use and construction more accessible to scientists. As such, it is important for…

Dickes, Amanda Catherine; Farris, Amy Voss; Sengupta, Pratim – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
In recent years, the field of education has challenged researchers and practitioners to incorporate computing as an essential focus of K-12 STEM education. Integrating computing within K-12 STEM supports learners of all ages in codeveloping and using computational thinking in existing curricular contexts alongside practices essential for…

Montgomery, Ryan; Greenwald, Eric; Crane, Samuel; Krakowski, Ari; Barber, Jacqueline – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
New national science standards have elevated attention to student performance with a core set of science and engineering practices, yet guidance about how to assess these practices is only just emerging in the literature. This is particularly true for the set of engineering design-focused concepts and practices articulated in the Next Generation…

Sirakaya, Mustafa; Alsancak Sirakaya, Didem; Korkmaz, Özgen – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
This study aimed to investigate the relationships among computational thinking (CT) skills, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) attitude, and thinking styles with the help of structural equation modeling and to determine to what extent the variables of STEM attitude and thinking styles explained CT skills. The study, conducted…

Chang, Chi-Cheng; Chen, Yiching – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
The study aimed to develop a cross-disciplinary integrative STEM (i-STEM) robotics curriculum by the thematic integration approaches of webbed and threaded models, and to understand high school students' cognitions, attitudes, and interests in robotics STEM after the instruction. The concurrent mixed methods including quantitative experimental…

Tate, Erika D.; Ibourk, Amal; McElhaney, Kevin W.; Feng, Mingyu – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
We examined the sophistication of middle school students' mechanistic explanations of genetics phenomena and how they interact with a technology-based explanation tool as they articulate and organize their ideas about the phenomena. We coordinated curriculum and assessment design frameworks to develop a middle school curriculum unit that engages…

Kim, Seunghyun; Heo, Ryoun; Chung, Yeonji; Kim, Jung Min; Kwon, Michelle P.; Seo, Sung Chul; Park, Gil-Hong; Kim, Meyoung-Kon – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
A major goal of education is to help students retain as much meaningful information as possible for long periods of time. The learning process by which students acquire new knowledge and behaviors is closely related to memory, which is the core of cognition. In a previous study, we developed virtual reality visualization model (VRVM) that can be…

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…

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…

Heijnes, Dewi; van Joolingen, Wouter; Leenaars, Frank – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
We investigate the way students' reasoning about evolution can be supported by drawing-based modeling. We modified the drawing-based modeling tool SimSketch to allow for modeling evolutionary processes. In three iterations of development and testing, students in lower secondary education worked on creating an evolutionary model. After each…

Wagh, Aditi; Wilensky, Uri – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
Extensive research has shown that one of the benefits of programming to learn about scientific phenomena is that it facilitates learning about mechanisms underlying the phenomenon. However, using programming activities in classrooms is associated with costs such as requiring additional time to learn to program or students needing prior experience…

Bush, Drew; Sieber, Renee; Seiler, Gale; Chandler, Mark – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
This study with 79 students in Montreal, Quebec, compared the educational use of a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) global climate model (GCM) to climate education technologies developed for classroom use that included simpler interfaces and processes. The goal was to show how differing climate education technologies succeed…

Sánchez Carracedo, Fermín; Soler, Antonia; Martín, Carme; López, David; Ageno, Alicia; Cabré, Jose; Garcia, Jordi; Aranda, Joan; Gibert, Karina – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
Curricula designed in the context of the European Higher Education Area need to be based on both domain-specific and professional competencies. Whereas universities have had extensive experience in developing students' domain-specific competencies, fostering professional competencies poses a new challenge we need to face. This paper presents a…
