Martinovic, Dragana; Kolikant, Yifat Ben-David; Milner-Bolotin, Marina – Journal of the International Society for Teacher Education, 2019
We describe three major challenges that teachers of STEM subjects face in their preparation and practice. Then, we discuss how technology could become a vehicle for providing timely and content-related support. To this end, we suggest a theoretical framework, which builds on the works of Vygotsky, Shulman, and Mishra and Koehler. Specifically, we…

Oladipo, Adenike Julianah; Osokoya, Modupe; Udeani, Uchenna – Journal of the International Society for Teacher Education, 2019
In this explorative study, a diagnostic test on diffusion and osmosis (DTDO) was developed and used to assess pre-degree students' conceptual understanding and application of diffusion and osmosis in biology. The 25-item DTDO is a two-tier test--adapted from Odom and Barrow's (1995) Diffusion Osmosis Diagnostic Test (DODT)--developed and validated…

Kasch, Henrik – Journal of the International Society for Teacher Education, 2019
This paper presents the data from two empirical studies of the learning affordances of a novel sui-generis language learning material, whose design is guided by universal design for learning (UDL) principles. Excepting a pilot study, the two studies appear to be the first outside the US to explore UDL principles and technology integration in…
