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,…

Tutwiler, M. Shane – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
In this study, we investigate trends in the relationship between what students know and the types of data that capture their attention over time in a science-based multi-user virtual environment. Longitudinal analyses of the patterns of data collected by 143 middle school students (nested within 5 teachers) showed that student prior knowledge was…

Lamb, Richard L.; Etopio, Elisabeth; Hand, Brian; Yoon, Sae Yeol – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate the role textbooks can play on writing complexity and lexical density as a proxy for critical thinking and ultimately learning, in relation to argumentative and summative writing when integrated with a virtual reality experience. In this study, differences in writing complexity and lexical density…

Magana, Alejandra J.; Elluri, Sindhura; Dasgupta, Chandan; Seah, Ying Ying; Madamanchi, Aasakiran; Boutin, Mireille – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
In science and engineering education, the use of heuristics has been introduced as a way of understanding the world, and as a way to approach problem-solving and design. However, important consequences for the use of heuristics are that they do not always guarantee a correct solution. Learning by Design has been identified as a pedagogical…

Rochera, María José; Merino, Iris; Oller, Judith; Coll, César – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Recently, the literature has repeatedly reported an interesting decrease in science and technology (S&T) among youngsters, and a drop of students choosing professions related to these knowledge areas. This study pursued to assess the interest of primary and secondary pupils in specific fields of S&T and to relate this interest to their…

Lucky, Andrea; Branham, Marc; Atchison, Rachel – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Assembling and curating specimen collections is a valuable educational exercise that integrates subject-specific skills such as field collection, curation, identification, organization, and interpretation of relationships. Collection projects have been used primarily in face-to-face classes, but they can be readily adapted for distance education.…

Develaki, Maria – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
While computer simulations are a key element in understanding and doing science today, their nature and implications for science education have not been adequately explored in the relevant literature. In this article, (1) we provide an analysis of the methodology and epistemology of computer simulations, aiming to contribute to a sound and…

Luo, Wenjing; Wei, Hsin-Ro; Ritzhaupt, Albert D.; Huggins-Manley, A. Corinne; Gardner-McCune, Christina – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Numerous studies have been undertaken to design, develop, and provide validity evidence for using instruments to measure students' attitudes toward STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). This study presents validity evidence of scores produced from the S-STEM measurement tool and used to evaluate changes in attitudes during an…

Schellinger, Jennifer; Mendenhall, Anne; Alemanne, Nicole; Southerland, Sherry A.; Sampson, Victor; Marty, Paul – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
The Next Generation Science Standards support understanding of the nature of science as it is practiced and experienced in the real world through interconnected concepts to be imbedded within scientific practices and crosscutting concepts. This study explored how fourth and fifth grade elementary students' views of nature of science change when…

Yeh, Heng-Yi; Tsai, Yu-Hsiang; Tsai, Chin-Chung; Chang, Hsin-Yi – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This study investigated high school students' conceptions of technology-assisted science learning via drawing analysis, and explored how students with different degrees of computer experience and science learning self-efficacy may show different conceptions via their drawings. The participants included 335 senior high school students in Taiwan…

Avargil, Shirly – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Chemistry curriculum should account for learning in context and understanding chemistry at the macroscopic and microscopic levels: the symbol level and the process level. The "Taste of Chemistry" learning module, developed for high school chemistry majors (students who choose to study the advanced chemistry program in high school),…

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…

McDowell, Travis R.; Schmittzehe, Emmalou T.; Duerden, Amanda J.; Cernusca, Dan; Collier, Harvest; Woelk, Klaus – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
A student-choice model course redesign was used to counteract a large increase in student enrollment, improve the quality of instruction, and preserve student success. This model is an instructional technique that allows students to choose how to engage in a course. Using this model in a first-semester college-level general chemistry course,…

Simpson, Amber; Anderson, Alice; Maltese, Adam V. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
A lot of attention has been given to the role failure plays in learning and innovation. Yet, we know little about the conditions necessary for the experience to result in positive outcomes. In this study, we sought to answer three research questions: (1) What is the relationship among attend, interpret, and respond when experiencing failures…

Starr, Christine R.; Anderson, Barrett R.; Green, Katherine A. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Women are less likely to choose physical Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (pSTEM) majors, partly because a lack of role models makes it hard for women to imagine themselves as successful in those fields. Possible self-interventions can help people imagine themselves having a successful future. Using social cognitive theory and…
