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…

Hutchins, Nicole M.; Biswas, Gautam; Maróti, Miklós; Lédeczi, Ákos; Grover, Shuchi; Wolf, Rachel; Blair, Kristen Pilner; Chin, Doris; Conlin, Luke; Basu, Satabdi; McElhaney, Kevin – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Synergistic learning combining computational thinking (CT) and STEM has proven to be an effective method for advancing learning and understanding in a number of STEM domains and simultaneously helping students develop important CT concepts and practices. We adopt a design-based approach to develop, evaluate, and refine our Collaborative,…

Yin, Yue; Hadad, Roxana; Tang, Xiaodan; Lin, Qiao – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Computational thinking (CT) is believed to be a critical factor to facilitate STEM learning, and a vital learning objective itself. Therefore, researchers are continuing to explore effective ways to improve and assess it. Makerspaces feature various hands-on activities, which can attract students with diverse interests from different backgrounds.…

Robinson, Frank J.; Reeves, Philip M.; Caines, Helen Louise; De Grandi, Claudia – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Flipped classrooms provide students the opportunity to collaboratively solve challenging problems in class with help and scaffolding available from instructors. Because there are many ways to structure a flipped course, research on the effectiveness of flipping classrooms has produced mixed results. Therefore, it is important for researchers to…

Walsh, Yoselyn; Magana, Alejandra J.; Feng, Shi – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
The current study investigates the differences in students' explanations of friction concepts after the use of the visuohaptic simulation with two different of sequenced approaches: enhanced visual first to enhanced visual and haptic feedback second (V [right arrow] V + H), and haptic enhanced first to enhanced visual and haptic feedback second (H…

Zhai, Xiaoming; Li, Min; Chen, Siwei – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
As mobile technology becomes more frequently used in science learning, understanding the relationship between student outcomes and the technology's pedagogical features is drawing increasing attention. This study focuses on one pedagogical feature--"who led the use." We first categorized 15 specific uses of mobile technology into three…

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…

Merkouris, Alexandros; Chorianopoulou, Betty; Chorianopoulos, Konstantinos; Chrissikopoulos, Vassilios – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Embodied interaction with tangible interactive objects can be beneficial for introducing abstract scientific concepts, especially for young learners. Nevertheless, there is limited comparative evaluation of alternative interaction modalities with contemporary educational technology, such as tablets and robots. In this study, we explore the effects…

Michaluk, Lynnette; Stoiko, Rachel; Stewart, Gay; Stewart, John – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
Elementary teachers often hold inaccurate beliefs about the Nature of Science (NoS) and have negative attitudes toward science and mathematics. Using a pre-post design, the current study examined beliefs about the NoS, attitudes toward science and mathematics, and beliefs about the teaching of mathematics and science in a large sample study…

Faulconer, E. K.; Griffith, J.; Wood, B.; Acharyya, S.; Roberts, D. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
While the equivalence between online and traditional classrooms has been well-researched, very little of this includes college-level introductory Physics. Only one study explored Physics at the whole-class level rather than specific course components such as a single lab or a homework platform. In this work, we compared the failure rate, grade…

Purba, Siska Wati Dewi; Hwang, Wu-Yuin – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
In this study, we designed and developed an app called Ubiquitous-Physics (U-Physics) for mobile devices like tablet PC or smart phones to help students learn the principles behind a simple pendulum in Physics. The unique characteristic of U-Physics is the use of sensors on mobile devices to collect acceleration and velocity data during pendulum…

Schroeder, Noah L.; Traxler, Adrienne L. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
Many instructors in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields are striving to create active learning environments in their classrooms and in doing so are frequently moving the lecture portion of their course into online video format. In this classroom-based study, we used a two group randomized experimental design to examine the…

Gönülates, Emre; Kortemeyer, Gerd – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
Homework is an important component of most physics courses. One of the functions it serves is to provide meaningful formative assessment in preparation for examinations. However, correlations between homework and examination scores tend to be low, likely due to unproductive student behavior such as copying and random guessing of answers. In this…

Ülen, Simon; Gerlic, Ivan; Slavinec, Mitja; Repnik, Robert – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
To provide a good understanding of many abstract concepts in the field of electricity above that of their students is often a major challenge for secondary school teachers. Many educational researchers promote conceptual learning as a teaching approach that can help teachers to achieve this goal. In this paper, we present Physlet-based materials…
