Lewis, Tim; Barlex, David; Chapman, Colin – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2007
Interaction between science and design and technology (D&T) in schools is seen by many educationalists and industrialists as being desirable. During the period 1970 to 1990 progress was made in the UK, however the advent of the national curriculum compartmentalised subjects thus hindering further progress. Bodies in the UK such as the Office…

Rodrigues, Susan – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2006
Teaching and learning science through the use of familiar contexts has been advocated for several decades. Many take the use of context in science lessons to mean the use of resource materials that involve common scenarios or themes, or activities. This paper reviews a lesson identified by a teacher as a lesson taught in context. The data…

Reid, Norman; Yang, Mei-Jung – Research in Science and Technological Education, 2002
Offers a simple classification of problems and seeks to explore the many factors that may be important in the successful solving of problems. Considers the place of procedures and algorithms. Solving open-ended problems is extremely important in education and offering learners experience with this in a group work context is a helpful way forward.…

Liu, Xiufeng; Ebenezer, Jazlin – Research in Science and Technological Education, 2002
Explores the relationship between the descriptive categories and structural characteristics of students' conceptions so that a theoretical framework may be developed to explain and predict students' alternative conceptions in science. The descriptive categories were developed through a process of coding, grouping, and labeling; the structural…

She, Hsiao-Ching – Research in Science and Technological Education, 2001
This case study investigated gender-based differences in classroom participation through examining teacher-student interactions between a female biology teacher and two groups of middle school students, namely high achievers and low achievers. The female teacher used a questioning-orientated instructional strategy as her major teaching style which…

Coll, Richard K.; Taylor, Neil – Research in Science and Technological Education, 2001
Examination of senior secondary and tertiary level chemistry students' descriptions of their mental models for chemical bonding revealed prevalent alternative conceptions. Some 20 alternative conceptions were revealed, the most common being belief that continuous ionic or metallic lattices were molecular in nature, and confusion over ionic size…

Palmer, David H. – Research in Science and Technological Education, 2001
Previous research has shown that students often have multiple conceptions within any particular topic area in science, and these conceptions are usually strongly linked to specific problem situations or contexts. Investigates the nature of any possible relationship between these conceptions. (Author/MM)

Tan, Kim-Chwee Daniel; Goh, Ngoh-Khang; Chia, Lian-Sai; Treagust, David F. – Research in Science and Technological Education, 2001
Grade 10 students in Singapore find qualitative analysis one of the more difficult topics in their external examinations. Fifty-one grade 10 students from three schools were interviewed to investigate their perceptions about learning qualitative analysis. The results showed that students found qualitative analysis tedious and difficult to…

Francis, Leslie J.; Greer, John E. – Research in Science and Technological Education, 2001
Examines adolescent attitudes towards Christianity, science, creationism, and scientism among high school students (n=1584) between the ages of 14-16. Reports that the apparent independence of attitude towards science and attitude towards Christianity is transformed into a positive relationship after taking into account individual differences in…

Brosnan, Tiim; Reynolds, Yvonne – Research in Science and Technological Education, 2001
Investigates patterns of students' science thinking across four different science phenomena focusing on changes that come with age and science education. Asks secondary school students whether offered sentences appearing on a computer screen that gave different explanations for four common changes in materials made any sense to them. (Contains 20…

Parkinson, John – Research in Science and Technological Education, 1998
Describes the information technology (IT) capabilities of a group of science student teachers. Argues that the classroom experience of using IT is an essential component of the training course and that progress is hampered by the infrequent use of computers by school mentors. Contains 33 references. (DDR)

Tairab, Hassan H.; Wilkinson, William J. – Research in Science and Technological Education, 1991
The degree of agreement between evaluations of trainee biology teachers using students' perceptions of teacher skills and characteristics obtained from Science Student Perception Questionnaire (SSPQ) and evaluations of these same teachers by their university supervisor and their school supervisors was determined. Results indicate an agreement and…
