Hung, Jung-Yi; Chang, Hsin-Yi; Hung, Jeng-Fung – Research in Science Education, 2021
Science teachers use a large number of visual representations and models in science classes to guide students to understand complex phenomena and to learn to conduct scientific inquiry. Fluent formation and use of visual representation involves metavisualization, which is a process related to metacognition and visualization. However, what kinds of…

Lie, Richard; Aranda, Maurina L.; Guzey, S. Selcen; Moore, Tamara J. – Research in Science Education, 2021
Recent reforms in science education have supported the inclusion of engineering and their practices in K-12 curricula. To this end, many classrooms have incorporated engineering units that include design challenges. Design is an integral part of engineering and can help students think in creative and interdisciplinary ways. In this study, we…

Hutner, Todd L.; Petrosino, Anthony J.; Salinas, Cinthia – Research in Science Education, 2021
One broad research question researchers continue to pursue is: to what degree does science teacher education influence the thinking of preservice science teachers? In other words, how has the thinking of preservice science teachers changed during the course of teacher education? Different models of cognition suggest different foci for this…

Wan, Zhi Hong – Research in Science Education, 2021
Students' attitudes towards science is a long-standing topic in science education. Among various sub-constructs of attitudes towards science, students' motives for learning science and their self-efficacy in science learning may be the most frequently studied. Drawing from the expectancy-value theory (EVT), this study explored the extent to which…

González-García, Francisco José; Blanco-López, Ángel; España-Ramos, Enrique; Franco-Mariscal, Antonio-Joaquín – Research in Science Education, 2021
The relationship between science and society has, for many years, been the subject of debate in different fields, and various proposals have been made regarding the kind of science education that citizens require. The present study considers an understanding of the nature of science (NOS) to be one of the key competences that citizens should…

Skamp, Keith; Boyes, Eddie; Stanisstreet, Martin; Rodriguez, Manuel; Malandrakis, George; Fortner, Rosanne; Kilinc, Ahmet; Taylor, Neil; Choker, Kiran; Shweta, Dua; Ambusaidi, Abdullah; Cheong, Irene; Kim, Mijung; Yoon, Hye-Gyoung – Research in Science Education, 2021
Voting for various pro-environmental governmental policies is an indirect, but potentially effective, action that citizens can take to reduce global warming (GW) and climate change. Supporting further environmental education is an additional action. This study reports students' beliefs about the effectiveness of these indirect actions in reducing…

Aliberas, Joan; Gutiérrez, Rufina; Izquierdo, Mercè – Research in Science Education, 2021
The aim of this paper is to show how an innovative technique can be used to introduce a method for uncovering intrinsic mechanisms that motivate changes in students' mental models. The theoretical framework used to develop the method is based on the ONEPSY (ONtology, EPistemology and PSYchology) model. The ONEPSY model is rooted in the theoretical…

Gregorcic, Bor; Haglund, Jesper – Research in Science Education, 2021
We present and analyze video data of upper secondary school students' engagement with a computer-supported collaborative learning environment that enables them to explore astronomical phenomena (Keplerian motion). The students' activities have an immersive and exploratory character, as students engage in open-ended inquiry and interact physically…

Eppler, Elisabeth; Meyer, Jan; Serowy, Steffen; Link, Karl; Pauk, Barbara; Filgueira, Luis – Research in Science Education, 2021
This educational study aimed to explore the feasibility and acceptance of a literacy exercise adopted from the real world of scientific publishing in a cell and tissue biology course. For that purpose, a tertiary-level multimodality science course, which integrated a blended learning faculty and student lectures, journal club, and wet laboratory…

McHugh, Luisa; Kelly, Angela M.; Fisher, Jacqueline Horan; Burghardt, M. David – Research in Science Education, 2021
This study evaluated the effectiveness of the Mathematics Infusion into Science Project (MiSP), which integrated science and mathematics in an engaging middle school science curriculum that fostered improvements in science content knowledge, higher-level problem solving, and affective domains related to mathematics. The project design was based…

Bae, Christine L.; DeBusk-Lane, Morgan; Hayes, Kathryn N.; Zhang, Fa – Research in Science Education, 2021
The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a survey of opportunities to participate (OtP) in science that will allow educators and researchers to closely approximate the types of learning opportunities students have in science classrooms. Additionally, we examined whether and how opportunity gaps in science learning may exist across…

García-Carmona, Antonio – Research in Science Education, 2021
This qualitative study analyses how effective an activity based on the critical and reflexive reading of the historical case of Rosalind Franklin and the elucidation of the molecular structure of DNA can be for learning about the nature of science (NOS). The aspects of NOS addressed are the plurality of methods in scientific research, research…

Ma, Hongming – Research in Science Education, 2021
Science education researchers have found that instructional design focusing more on learners' affective needs can be powerful in nurturing effective and exciting science learning. This paper reports a qualitative study exploring how learners' situational affective experiences are influenced by the interplay of their habitual affective attributes…

Rees, Simon; Kind, Vanessa; Newton, Douglas – Research in Science Education, 2021
Students commonly find specialist scientific language problematic. This study investigated developments in chemical language usage by six "non-traditional" students over the course of 1 to 4 years. The students participated in semi-structured interviews and were asked to explain specific chemical scenarios. Interviews were transcribed…

Dini, Vesal; Jaber, Lama; Danahy, Ethan – Research in Science Education, 2021
We investigate in-service teachers' scientific engagement in a blended online science inquiry course. We analyze a shift from teachers following instructions to doing science themselves, and we characterize it at two levels: first, in how teachers engaged in individual sense-making; and second, in how they oriented to the online community as a…
