Mambrey, Sophia; Schreiber, Nico; Schmiemann, Philipp – Research in Science Education, 2022
Regarding future ecological challenges, it is highly relevant for students to understand the processes within ecosystems and the effects of external influences on their conservation. Since ecosystems are complex, difficulties in learning are often examined from a systems thinking perspective. However, challenges also arise in other areas,…

Tytler, Russell; Prain, Vaughan; Hannigan, Shelley – Research in Science Education, 2022
While the multimodal nature of the languages of science is now broadly recognised, the role of affect and aesthetics in these languages, and the potential for this aesthetic focus to add to these languages, has tended to be ignored. Research into these languages has mainly focused on a codification of their functions, an approach to which…

Murphy, Steve – Research in Science Education, 2022
Science education is essential for sustainability and prosperity. However, students from rural communities, arguably the future custodians of our environment and significant drivers of our economies, underperform in science education. In Australia, rural students generally lag behind metropolitan students in science achievement and engagement.…

Leung, Jessica Shuk Ching – Research in Science Education, 2022
The nature of science (NOS) has been recognised as an essential component for engagement with socioscientific issues (SSI). However, the findings on the link between the two have been inconclusive. This calls for a shift from students merely knowing about NOS, to using their understanding of it as a tool for decision-making and participation in…

Kruse, Jerrid; Kent-Schneider, Isaiah; Voss, Sarah; Zacharski, Kinsey; Rockefeller, Molly – Research in Science Education, 2022
While the importance of explicit and reflective NOS instruction is clear in the literature, questions remain about how to enact such instruction. That is, literature is sometimes unclear in defining how to enact explicit and reflective NOS instruction. While some authors recommend using questions (e.g., Clough 2007) to enact effective NOS…

Yun, Ayon; Shi, Chungkon; Jun, Bong Gwan – Research in Science Education, 2022
In this paper, the authors focus on theoretical discussions regarding the socio-scientific issues based exhibition, whose importance has become greater for science centers in the past two decades, but has no clear definition. We examine the background of the socio-scientific issues based exhibition, including its scope and qualities, through…

Choudhary, Rahul; Foppoli, Alexander; Kaur, Tejinder; Blair, David; Burman, Ron; Zadnik, Marjan – Research in Science Education, 2022
The need to modernise school physics to encompass the fundamentals of Einsteinian physics is widely recognised. While the ability of students to comprehend qualitative Einsteinian concepts has been demonstrated, little information exists to determine the best student age and the duration of instruction required for introducing Einsteinian physics…

Monteira, Sabela F.; Jiménez-Aleixandre, María Pilar; Siry, Christina – Research in Science Education, 2022
We report a longitudinal study carried out along 3 years in an early childhood education (ECE) classroom in which we examined children's (aged 3-6) engagement with science representations. The research questions are as follows: (1) How do children's science representations develop from ECE1 to ECE3? (2) What are the features and affordances of the…

Kang, Jingoo – Research in Science Education, 2022
Recent international comparison studies such as the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) repeatedly argued that inquiry-based learning (IBL) indicated a negative effect on science literacy (SL). However, those studies included two limitations in revealing the relationship between IBL and SL as they did not consider (1)…

Chen, Sitong; Wei, Bing – Research in Science Education, 2022
Students' science identity has been identified as an important construct that positively influences their learning engagement, persistence, and career intentions in science. This paper reported the process of developing and validating an instrument that can be used to assess high school students' science identity. The development of this…

Skamp, Keith – Research in Science Education, 2022
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Australasian Science Education Research Association's annual conference, this paper reviews the last 25 years of the Association's journal "Research in Science Education" ("RISE"). All "RISE" papers, at 4-year intervals (1994-2018; seven volumes), were reviewed: a total of…

Boesdorfer, Sarah B.; Del Carlo, Dawn I.; Wayson, Jessica – Research in Science Education, 2022
Despite the promotion of data-driven or data-informed instructional practices in teacher education and professional development, past research indicates that teachers use a limited number of sources for student data to make short-term adjustments to their teaching in order to address deficiencies in student learning. Science teachers, with a more…

Coetzee, Coréne; Rollnick, Marissa; Gaigher, Estelle – Research in Science Education, 2022
This paper reports on topic-specific pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) enacted by three pre-service science teachers during their final year school-based internship. An interpretive, qualitative case study was conducted to investigate to what extent the pre-service teachers applied the knowledge taught during a preceding physical science method…

Knight, Simon; Thompson, Kate – Research in Science Education, 2022
Integrating information from across multiple sources is an important science literacy skill that involves the following: identifying intra- and intertextual ties, modeling relationships between sources and claims and making an evaluation of the claims made. Tasks that involve reading, interpreting and synthesizing multiple sources have been well…

Romero-Maltrana, Diego; Duarte, Sergio – Research in Science Education, 2022
Scientific literacy not only involves scientific content relative to each branch of science, as a scientifically literate person is also aware of what science is, as well as how it operates in a broader and complex sense. Therefore, in order to develop and implement successful methodologies in the classroom aiming to improve students' scientific…
