Soysal, Yilmaz – Learning: Research and Practice, 2021
This study intended to explore elementary and middle school science teachers' metadiscourse moves (MDMs) in Vygotskian perspective. MDMs indicates teacher-led attempts to cognitively engage students in classroom's verbal occurrences. Participants of the study were 71 fifth, sixth, and seventh-grade students and their science teachers (two females,…

Adams, Jonathon; Chin, Tan Ying; Tan, Poh Hiang – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
This paper was part of a larger study to examine one primary and one secondary teacher's classroom. The study analysed the classroom discourse to describe the types of interaction and illustrate how the teachers used talk moves to mediate talk for learning science around visual representations (VRs). The study employed ethnographic approaches to…

Tytler, Russell; Ferguson, Joseph; White, Peta – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
Increasingly, learning in science and mathematics is considered in terms of induction into the multimodal language practices of the disciplinary community. A strong strand of research in this tradition has involved students being challenged to invent multimodal language forms, and their ideas refined through structured guidance. Often, however,…

Nielsen, Wendy; Turney, Annette; Georgiou, Helen; Jones, Pauline – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
A "digital explanation" is a science learning task where learners explain science content to non-expert others, in this case, the learners are primary preservice teachers [PST] in a science methods class. In the task, PST are assigned a prompt based on science content from the New South Wales K-6 syllabus and generate or source multiple…

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…

Tham, Rachel; Walker, Zachary; Tan, Shi Hui Desiree; Low, Li Tong; Annabel Chen, Shen-Hsing – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
Translating Neuroscience to education involves providing accurate and simplified information about neuroscience to teachers. The aim of this research was to understand if providing translated abstracts from neuroscientific articles helped teachers understand content more thoroughly. Surveys, experimental manipulation, and focus group discussions…

Walker, Zachary; Hale, James B.; Annabel Chen, Shen-Hsing; Poon, Kenneth – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
The potential of educational neuroscience in teacher training and continuing professional development has been debated extensively, yet knowledge translation is largely absent in this field. Without objective methods for translating and disseminating educational neuroscience evidence, the impact of training on educators and the children they serve…

Leber, Jasmin; Renkl, Alexander; Nückles, Matthias; Wäschle, Kristin – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
According to the model of constructive alignment, learners adjust their learning strategies to the announced assessment (backwash effect). Hence, when teaching for understanding, the assessment method should be aligned with this teaching goal to ensure that learners engage in corresponding learning strategies. A quasi-experimental field study with…

Svihla, Vanessa; Wester, Michael J.; Linn, Marcia C. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
This study is inspired by laboratory studies demonstrating that distributing study sessions over time better supports learning and retention than clustering sessions. We compare two implementations of a multi-day inquiry science unit: in the clustered instruction condition, students completed an inquiry unit in five consecutive class periods. In…

Tobin, Kenneth – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
I begin with a review of our research on meditation, mindfulness, expressed emotions, and physiological variability while teaching. Then, through the theoretical lenses of polyvagal theory, I examine an event from our ongoing research in which a teacher had very low levels of blood oxygenation. Apparently, her body switched from parasympathetic to…

Khng, Kiat Hui – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
Since the formal introduction of mindfulness-based practices (MBPs) into clinical settings in the late 1970s, a growing body of research has demonstrated their benefits in diverse settings, from clinical programmes, business and sports, to education. Along with the development of standardised mindfulness-based programmes in the areas of clinical…

Luitel, Bal Chandra – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
Exploring ways to develop a transformative curriculum vision for mathematics education that is inclusive to opposing perspectives and ideologies, this mindful inquiry explores "mindless" views embedded in the mathematics curriculum of Nepal; explores narrowly conceived disempowering assumptions within it; engages in dialectical…

Taylor, Elisabeth (Lily) – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
Alienation and moral disengagement have been described in the literature as some of the key factors for making some people more vulnerable to violent extremism. In this paper, I explore how mindfulness training, especially when paired with art therapy strategies, has great potential for supporting targeted educational measures for building…

van Leeuwen, Anouschka; van Wermeskerken, Margot; Erkens, Gijsbert; Rummel, Nikol – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
Teacher orchestration of the classroom is a demanding task because of the multitude of activities and the rapid pace at which these activities occur. Teachers must constantly be aware of the activities students engage in and the progress students are making, in order to be able to make informed decisions. Recent years have seen the development of…
