Chavez, Jorge – Learning: Research and Practice, 2021
Space-time plays a central role in the scientific study of learning trajectories. From a sociocultural perspective, the definition of a set of space-time coordinates enables researchers to identify and examine both the learning activities in which subjects participate and those life events relevant to understanding their learning processes. The…

Volkwyn, T. S.; Airey, J.; Gregorcic, B.; Linder, C. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
A social semiotic lens is used to characterise aspects of representational competence for a discipline such as physics, to provide science teachers with a practical suggestion about how student learning might be organised to develop representational competence. We suggest that representational competence for some areas of science can be…

Yeo, Jennifer; Wong, Wai Lit; Tan, Daniel K. C.; Ong, Yann Shiou; Delserieys Pedregosa, Alice – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
Science teachers often use visual images to help students visualise the abstract concepts of science. Yet, they may not support students in making sense of these visual representations, wrongly assuming that the students can intuitively do it on their own. Pre- and in-service teacher professional development programmes also seldom explicitly teach…

Cheng, Maurice M. W.; Danielsson, Kristina; Lin, Angel M. Y. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
This paper examines the roles of multimodality and thematic patterns in the teaching of the particle model of matter. Although the particle model is a fundamental topic in science education, there is no consensus on (1) whether or not the model should be introduced in early grades and (2) how to introduce the model to students for the very first…

Järvenoja, Hanna; Malmberg, Jonna; Järvelä, Sanna; Näykki, Piia; Kontturi, Heikki – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
This study explores fluctuation in students' emotional state and motivational goals during a learning project that requires self-regulation. The research asks the following questions: (1) How do students' emotional state and motivational goal fluctuate between the gStudy learning sessions during a two-month project? (2) How do students with…

Rutten, Nico; van Joolingen, Wouter R.; van der Veen, Jan T. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
Going beyond simply measuring the effectiveness of a teaching approach with computer simulations during whole-class science instruction, we investigated the interaction between teachers and their students as well as searched for mechanisms in the pedagogical context related to teachers' implementation of the intervention. Our quasi-experimental…
