Kranz, Johanna; Baur, Armin; Möller, Andrea – Studies in Science Education, 2023
In today's world shaped by technology and the natural sciences, knowledge and skills related to experimentation are crucial, especially given growing public debates about science-related topics. Despite a strong emphasis on experimentation in science curricula worldwide, learners still encounter diverse challenges when experimenting. This paper…

Feser, Markus Sebastian; Haak, Inka – Studies in Science Education, 2023
Since 2010, a remarkable number of literature reviews on teacher identity has been published. These literature reviews address a wide range of different foci, e.g., school teachers' identity, higher education teachers' identity, or the identity of teachers teaching a specific subject such as science. So far, these literature reviews have not been…

Gericke, Niklas; Högström, Per; Wallin, Johan – Studies in Science Education, 2023
We present an integrative mixed-methods systematic review of research on laboratory work in secondary-school science education from 1996 to 2019. The aim of the study is to identify important aspects of how to successfully make use of laboratory work as a science-teaching strategy in secondary schools. By engaging teachers, our study uses a…

Matovu, Henry; Ungu, Dewi Ayu Kencana; Won, Mihye; Tsai, Chin-Chung; Treagust, David F.; Mocerino, Mauro; Tasker, Roy – Studies in Science Education, 2023
The advanced visualisation and interactive capabilities make immersive virtual reality (IVR) attractive for educators to investigate its educational benefits. This research reviewed 64 studies published in 2016-2020 to understand how science educators designed, implemented, and evaluated IVR-based learning. The immersive design features (sensory,…

McLaughlin, Jessica A.; Bailey, Janelle M. – Studies in Science Education, 2023
Myriad research in a variety of contexts shows spatial skills benefit students; however, they are not given enough attention in classroom instruction. In this review we systematically explore geoscience education literature focusing on spatial interventions to answer research questions on trends in spatial skills and other characteristics. We…

Google, Angela N.; Gardner, Grant; Grinath, Anna S. – Studies in Science Education, 2023
For decades, biology education researchers have made efforts towards engaging undergraduate students in the process of science and assisting students in their development of deep approaches to learning in the field. Research indicates that students who adopt deep approaches or study strategies make meaningful connections with course material and…

Arztmann, Michaela; Hornstra, Lisette; Jeuring, Johan; Kester, Liesbeth – Studies in Science Education, 2023
Game-based learning has proven to be effective and is widely used in science education, but usually the heterogeneity of the student population is being overlooked. To examine the differential effects of game interventions in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related subjects on diverse student groups, a meta-analysis has…

Potvin, Patrice – Studies in Science Education, 2023
This article presents a critical and systematic review of the science education research literature that explores the response of learners to contradicting information (anomalous data). The review is framed in the cognitive conflict process model (CCPM) and provides an analysis of (1) the types and frequency of possible responses, (2) the…

Davis, Kate; Fitzgerald, Angela; Power, Margaret; Leach, Tania; Martin, Neil; Piper, Stephanie; Singh, Rena; Dunlop, Shelley – Studies in Science Education, 2023
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) clubs are gaining momentum as a means for engaging students in STEM-related activities. Despite this growth, there have been limited attempts to examine the conditions that inform practice in these informal educational spaces. This paper addresses that gap through a comprehensive literature…

Gray, Ron; McDonald, Scott; Stroupe, David – Studies in Science Education, 2022
This article explores how scholars have framed studies of preservice science teacher (PST) knowledge and learning over the past twelve years. We examined relevant studies between 2008 and 2020, coding them by theoretical perspective (cognitive or sociocultural), knowledge perspective (deficit or asset), and teaching level (elementary, secondary,…

Takeuchi, Miwa A.; Sengupta, Pratim; Shanahan, Marie-Claire; Adams, Jennifer D.; Hachem, Maryam – Studies in Science Education, 2020
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education garnered significant attention in recent years and has emerged as a key field of research globally. The goal of this article is to offer a critical review of how STEM education and its transdisciplinarity were defined and/or positioned in empirical studies published during the early…

In this article, we propose an analysis of the state of, and trends in, the field of conceptual change research in science education through the lens of its models. Using a quantitative approach, we reviewed all conceptual change articles (n = 245) published in five major journals in the field of science education in search of the support that…

Simms, Wendy – Studies in Science Education, 2020
A theoretical review of the literature was conducted to understand how environmental identity is currently being interpreted and applied so the construct can be extended to the classroom context appropriately. The review found three key foundational philosophies contributing to the interpretation of environmental identity in the field of…

Holzberger, Doris; Reinhold, Sarah; Lüdtke, Oliver; Seidel, Tina – Studies in Science Education, 2020
In the present meta-analysis, we examine how secondary school characteristics -- such as schools' academic press, school climate, material resources, personnel resources, classroom climate, instructional practices, out-of-school activities, and socioeconomic status (SES) composition -- provide opportunities for students to engage in science and…

Reinhold, Sarah; Holzberger, Doris; Seidel, Tina – Studies in Science Education, 2018
Previous studies have pointed out that schools play a central role in students' orientation towards science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). However, studies use a variety of theoretical foundations in order to define variables and hypothesise relationships between schools and STEM orientation. In order to facilitate the…
