Toscano, Maurizio; Quay, John – Science & Education, 2021
This paper argues that pragmatist philosophies and theories of science, education and art have dominated our understanding of aesthetics in science education in ways that overshadow other important and pertinent aspects of aesthetic experience. For all its strengths, a pragmatist account of science education and aesthetics remains vulnerable to a…

Ren, Xiaohong; Wang, Xiaoyan; Jin, Xinglong; Li, Mengting – Science & Education, 2021
Moral ethic prevails in the science and education of chemistry. These issues are unique to chemistry and arise from between the theoretical and the practical behavior in laboratory. The study reported in the paper investigated the impact of personal moral philosophies on the safety practices of students in chemistry and related majors. The results…

Soysal, Yilmaz – Science & Education, 2021
The paper reports an empirical study that examined relationships between the implementation quality of an argument-based inquiry (ABI) approach, teachers' talk moves, and students' critical thinking. Students were taught using an ABI approach in which they had opportunities to engage in critical thinking. However, this instructional approach was…

DeFeo, Dayna Jean; Tran, Trang C.; Gerken, Sarah – Science & Education, 2021
The paper analyzes focus group data to explore student perceptions of an inquiry-based undergraduate biology course. Though the course was designed to mimic the scientific process by incorporating uncertainty, peer review, and self-reflection, students came to class focused on getting As and with a developed schema for didactic instruction and…

Levrini, Olivia; Fantini, Paola; Barelli, Eleonora; Branchetti, Laura; Satanassi, Sara; Tasquier, Giulia – Science & Education, 2021
The crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic led most people all over the world to deal with a change in their perception and organization of time. This happened also, and mainly, within the educational institutions, where students and teachers had to rearrange their teaching/learning dynamics because of the forced education at a distance. In this…

Schvartzer, Maayan; Elazar, Michael; Kapon, Shulamit – Science & Education, 2021
Many physics learners take the specific mathematical representations they are using as part of their learning and doing physics for granted. The paper addresses this problem by highlighting two goals. The first is to show how a historical investigation from history of science can be transformed into a concrete lesson plan in physics, in a physics…

Li, Xiaoshan; Wang, Wenjing – Science & Education, 2021
Spatial ability is a powerful systematic source of individual differences in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and technology (STEM). Abundant research has evidenced that psychometrically assessed spatial ability is a strong predictor of STEM achievement. However, its underlying cognitive process and relevant role in STEM education…

Aydeniz, Mehmet; Bilican, Kader; Senler, Burcu – Science & Education, 2021
Helping students at all grade levels to develop inquiry skills has been an ambitious goal that science educators have been pursuing for the last three decades. Yet, studies consistently report cases of failure from science classrooms with regard to inquiry-based teaching. The purpose of this study was to develop an instrument for measuring primary…

Pietrocola, Maurício; Rodrigues, Ernani; Bercot, Filipe; Schnorr, Samuel – Science & Education, 2021
The current COVID-19 pandemic raises reflection on the new roles of science education in citizen education in a world characterized by civilization risks, derived from the current socioeconomic development. This specific type of risk is treated as a manufactured risk as proposed by the sociologist Ulrich Beck. In this paper, we report a document…

Lee, Jun-Ki; Aini, Rahmi Qurota; Sya'bandari, Yustika; Rusmana, Ai Nurlaelasari; Ha, Minsu; Shin, Sein – Science & Education, 2021
The conception of racial categories from a biological perspective is unconsciously embedded in the individual's cognition. This is true even among university students majoring in biology and medicine. Even though students have never learned about "race" explicitly in formal biology class, they are highly likely to implicitly construct,…

Yacoubian, Hagop A. – Science & Education, 2021
Nature of science (NOS) is considered an important aspect of scientific literacy. Despite efforts in guiding school students to develop more adequate NOS views, little is known about the long-term retention of students' post-intervention views. Retention of adequate NOS views is needed for functioning as scientifically literate citizens. Moreover,…

Wei, Bing; Wang, Yaqing – Science & Education, 2021
The term "science practice" has drawn increasing attention in the current science education literature. In this study, the methodology of content analysis was adopted to examine the presentation of science practice in 20 historical cases compiled in a popular science book. Three aspects and eight categories of science practice constitute…

Shi, Xiaoming – Science & Education, 2021
Adopting an explicit and reflective approach to the teaching of the history and philosophy of science is useful in promoting high school students' understanding of the nature of science. Whereas the history of science is usually signposted clearly in the school science curriculum, the philosophy of science is considered to be embedded in and…

Klaver, Lida T.; Walma van der Molen, Juliette H. – Science & Education, 2021
This paper presents the results of a large-scale study to validate a questionnaire that measures pupils' attitudes towards socioscientific issues (the PASSI questionnaire). We define socioscientific issues (SSI) as those topics that are about complex societal and technological developments that may induce ethical dilemmas. In this study, the term…

Archila, Pablo Antonio; Molina, Jorge; Danies, Giovanna; de Mejía, Anne-Marie Truscott; Restrepo, Silvia – Science & Education, 2021
A well-informed populace is vitally important for the proper functioning of democracy. Media news articles constitute an essential means by which the public comes into contact with scientific issues. However, not all of the scientific information presented in news articles is trustworthy or accurate. Naturally, the situation becomes more…
