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…

Wiblom, Jonna; Andrée, Maria; Rundgren, Carl-Johan – Science & Education, 2020
This study focuses the emerging need for young people to critically respond to alarming messages in contemporary media highlighting the potential benefits or harms of certain foods. Besides being technical, advancements in the field of nutrition reported in media are often of tentative and speculative character, primarily selected and constructed…

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,…

He, Xinyu; Deng, Yang; Yu, Saisai; Wang, Houxiong – Science & Education, 2020
Scientific argumentation is a key practice in the construction, confirmation, and legalization of scientific knowledge. Although studies on scientific argumentation have been relatively plentiful, there are few quantitative studies on how students mentally perceive scientific argumentation, given that traditional quantitative tools such as Likert…

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…

Archila, Pablo Antonio; Molina, Jorge; Truscott de Mejía, Anne-Marie – Science & Education, 2020
The Covid-19 pandemic is the reason why humanity is paying more attention to the importance of regular and rigorous handwashing. Interestingly, in the nineteenth century, regular and rigorous handwashing was a key (and controversial) solution proposed by the Hungarian obstetrician Ignaz Philipp Semmelweis to cut drastically cases of puerperal…

Burke, Lydia E. Carol-Ann; Wallace, John – Science & Education, 2020
Education systems in once-colonised locations cannot escape the abiding legacy of colonisation. Science, in particular, has played a prominent role in the reasonings and rationalisations of the colonial process. When considered in the context of an education system established by imperial powers, it is difficult to reconcile processes of…

Bancong, Hartono; Song, Jinwoong – Science & Education, 2020
Thought experiments are personal and tacit processes of experimentation that scientists perform within their own imagery in formulating new theories or refuting existing theories. However, by viewing learning as a social process, this study aims to show that thought experiments can also be constructed collaboratively and to present a detailed…

Peters-Burton, Erin E.; Parrish, Jennifer C.; Mulvey, Bridget K. – Science & Education, 2019
An understanding of how science is enacted and how scientific knowledge is generated, or the nature of science (NOS), is a major goal of science education. NOS views have almost exclusively been assessed using the Views of Nature of Science (VNOS) suite of instruments, which consists of open-ended questions. The purpose of this study was to…

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…

Jin, Hui; Delgado, Cesar; Bauer, Malcolm I.; Wylie, E. Caroline; Cisterna, Dante; Llort, Kenneth F. – Science & Education, 2019
In this article, we report on a three-pronged effort to create a hypothetical learning progression for quantification in science. First, we drew from history and philosophy of science to define the quantification competency and develop hypothetical levels of the learning progression. More specifically, the quantification competency refers to the…

Pierson, Ashlyn E.; Clark, Douglas B. – Science & Education, 2019
In light of recent emphasis on K-12 scientific modeling (e.g., Duschl et al. 2007, "Taking science to school: learning and teaching science in grades K-8"; Lehrer and Schauble 2015, "Handbook of child psychology and developmental science"; NRC 2012, "A framework for K-12 science education: practices, crosscutting concepts,…

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…
