Koster, Edwin; de Regt, Henk W. – Science & Education, 2020
While a conception of science as value free has been dominant since Max Weber defended it in the nineteenth century, recent years have witnessed an emerging consensus that science is not -- and cannot be -- completely free of values. Which values may legitimately influence science, and in which ways, is currently a topic of heated debate in…

Alcantara, Marlon C.; Braga, Marco; van den Heuvel, Charles – Science & Education, 2020
This paper discusses the potential of the creation and analysis of historical networks as didactic strategies in science education. To this end, we first argue the importance of combining critical approaches of the history of science with historical network research. This will be followed by a report of an empirical experiment in which the history…

Zidny, Robby; Sjöström, Jesper; Eilks, Ingo – Science & Education, 2020
Indigenous knowledge provides specific views of the world held by various indigenous peoples. It offers different views on nature and science that generally differ from traditional Western science. Futhermore, it introduces different perspectives on nature and the human in nature. Coming basically from a Western perspective on nature and science,…

García-Carmona, Antonio – Science & Education, 2020
For years, inquiry-based learning has been conceived of and promoted as one of the best approaches to learning science. However, there is currently a movement within the science education community that suggests promoting science learning based on scientific practices, instead of inquiry, because in this way, science learning would be more…

Mohan, Ashwin Krishnan – Science & Education, 2020
Quantum mechanics has proven to be a challenging subject for instructors to teach and conceptually difficult for students to understand. A major source of the difficulty is the lack of everyday experience that quantum mechanics can be related to and the change in thinking required in transitioning from deterministic classical mechanics to a…

de Carvalho, Ítalo Nascimento; El-Hani, Charbel N.; Nunes-Neto, Nei – Science & Education, 2020
The excess of curriculum content is a well-known problem in high school biology. Some strategies to adjust the amount of content to the available classroom time have been proposed, but none has been widely accepted and applied. Furthermore, biology is frequently presented in high school not as an integrated science, but as a collection of…

Emden, Markus; Gerwig, Mario – Science & Education, 2020
Michael Faraday is considered one of the greatest science lecturers in history. He popularized the Christmas Lectures as a format of science communication that has survived until today in the Royal Institution of Great Britain. Especially, his "Chemical History of a Candle" has become a classic of science communication that has inspired…

Park, Wonyong; Yang, Seungran; Song, Jinwoong – Science & Education, 2019
The social reaction to the recent detection of the Higgs boson and gravitational waves provided evidence that public interest in modern physics has reached a high point. Although these modern physics topics are being introduced into the upper secondary physics curricula in a growing number of countries, their potential for teaching various aspects…

Brock, Richard; Hay, David – Science & Education, 2019
Whilst many science educators, it is reported, associate knowledge with justified true belief (JTB), epistemologists have observed that the JTB model is an incomplete account of knowledge. Moreover, researchers from several fields have argued that developing scientific expertise involves not only the acquisition of knowledge that can be expressed…

Smith, Mike U.; Siegel, Harvey – Science & Education, 2019
Can a teacher aim for students to "believe" evolution without indoctrinating them? Recent discussions of indoctrination in evolution education suggest that such teaching must inevitably indoctrinate but is "warranted" in some cases; while science educators concerned about teaching for "belief" argue that such teaching…

Hardahl, Liv Kondrup; Wickman, Per-Olof; Caiman, Cecilia – Science & Education, 2019
This article deals with science content "in the making" and in particular the role of the body in producing scientific phenomena. While accounts of scientists' work have repeatedly demonstrated, how producing phenomena requires immense amounts of time and effort, involving tinkering and manual labor, this is a little empirically studied…

Sikorski, Tiffany-Rose – Science & Education, 2019
In the spirit of model revision, researchers continue to refine the notion of a learning progression. Despite many advances in learning progressions research, one key design element has eluded scholarly critique, the upper anchor. Drawing on science education research and studies of science, this essay argues for a shift from the predominant model…

Guy-Gaytán, Candice; Gouvea, Julia S.; Griesemer, Chris; Passmore, Cynthia – Science & Education, 2019
The ability to develop and use models to explain phenomena is a key component of the "Next Generation Science Standards", and without examples of what modeling instruction looks like in the reality of classrooms, it will be difficult for us as a field to understand how to move forward in designing curricula that foreground the practice…

Lederman, Norman G. – Science & Education, 2019
How nature of scientific knowledge (NOSK) or nature of science (NOS) and scientific inquiry (SI) are contextualized, or related to each other, significantly impacts both curriculum and classroom practice, specifically with respect to the teaching and learning of NOSK. NOS and NOSK are considered synonymous here, with NOSK more accurately conveying…

Galili, Igal – Science & Education, 2019
This study considers the short list of Nature of Science (NOS) features frequently published and widely known in the science education discourse. It is argued that these features were oversimplified and a refinement of the claims may enrich or sometimes reverse them. The analysis shows the need to address the range of variation in each particular…
