Wilkerson, Michelle Hoda; Polman, Joseph L. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
The emerging field of Data Science has had a large impact on science and society. This has led to over a decade of calls to establish a corresponding field of Data Science Education. There is still a need, however, to more deeply conceptualize what a field of Data Science Education might entail in terms of scope, responsibility, and execution.…

Wise, Alyssa Friend – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This article discusses how each of the papers in this special issue explored some combination of subject, audience, and data scientist perspectives with an eye toward helping students situate their relationship to data. Specifically, within the data scientist perspective, the papers examined a variety of ways in which students can relate to data…

Roberts, Jessica; Lyons, Leilah – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Engaging learners with complex unfamiliar datasets is a known challenge in Data Science education. One promising phenomenon investigated in related work is perspective-taking. A first-person "actor" perspective can help facilitate group and individual sensemaking by mediating observations and actions taken by learners. Here we…

Stornaiuolo, Amy – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This article centers sociocultural and sociopolitical considerations of how young people understand, represent, and use data by presenting findings from a social design research study about how students in a public urban high school authored "data stories" using personal data they curated, collected, and visualized. The study contributes…

Lee, Victor R.; Dubovi, Ilana – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This article reports on an exploratory study of quantitative data use situated in families' management routines while taking care of a child with Type 1 diabetes (T1D). T1D treatment requires frequent measurement and recording of numerical data about blood sugar concentration, nutritional intake, and insulin dosage at the child's home, at school,…

Hardy, Lisa; Dixon, Colin; Hsi, Sherry – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This paper contributes a theoretical framework informed by historical, philosophical and ethnographic studies of science practice to argue that data should be considered to be actively produced, rather than passively collected. We further argue that traditional school science laboratory investigations misconstrue the nature of data and overly…

Rubin, Andee – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Teaching students to reason with data is not a totally new enterprise. A small but insistent statistics education community has been studying the process for decades. This commentary provides an introduction to some major themes of that research, in order to provide common ground for conversations between learning sciences researchers and those…

Kahn, Jennifer – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Open large-scale datasets (LSDS) and data visualization technologies are new cultural tools that have potential to inform public dialogue and learning about important socioeconomic and scientific matters, particularly if the data is used to consider both personal and shared experiences. This paper reports on a design study in which diverse middle…

Van Wart, Sarah; Lanouette, Kathryn; Parikh, Tapan S. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Data increasingly mediates how we understand the world. As such, there is growing interest in designing initiatives to help young people learn about data--not only the techno-mathematical skills necessary to work with data, but also the dispositions needed to participate in data-centric ways of knowing and doing. In this article, we argue that as…

Metz, Kathleen Emlen; Cardace, Amy; Berson, Eric; Ly, Uyen; Wong, Nicole; Sisk-Hilton, Stephanie; Metz, S. Emlen; Wilson, Mark – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
We investigated second and third graders' capacity to understand microevolution, given a learning progression leveraging intuitions to build more adequate explanations, problematizing core ideas within scientific practices, and in-depth study of a single domain (botany or animal behavior). The intervention was implemented in both researcher-taught…

Howe, Christine; Hennessy, Sara; Mercer, Neil; Vrikki, Maria; Wheatley, Lisa – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
It is now widely believed that classroom dialogue matters as regards student outcomes, with optimal patterns often regarded as requiring some or all of open questions, elaboration of previous contributions, reasoned discussion of competing viewpoints, linkage and coordination across contributions, metacognitive engagement with dialogue, and high…

DeLiema, David; Enyedy, Noel; Danish, Joshua A. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Taking place within the Science Through Technology-Enhanced Play (STEP) design-based research project, this paper describes how first- and second-grade students use their bodies to imaginatively become microscopic particles inside of a collaborative simulation of state change (e.g., liquid to gas) and within two distinct play spaces: a…

Calabrese Barton, Angela; Tan, Edna – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Opportunities to learn in consequential ways are shaped by the historicized injustices students encounter in relation to participation in STEM and schooling. In this article, it is argued that the construct of rightful presence, and the coconstructed "making present" practices that give rise to moments of rightful presence, is 1 way to…

Lavie, Irit; Sfard, Anna – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Conceptualizing numbers as discursive constructs generated in, and for the sake of, communication, we investigated the development of the numerical discourse of Milo, a boy who was 2 years and 8 months old when we first met him and whom we then followed for 18 months. Our analyses of the child's evolving responses to the question "Where is…

Margulieux, Lauren E.; Catrambone, Richard – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Subgoal learning, a technique used to break down problem solving into manageable pieces, has been used to promote retention and transfer in procedural domains, such as programming. The primary method of learning subgoals has been passive, and passive learning methods are typically less effective than constructive methods. To promote constructive…
