James Deehan; Amy MacDonald; Christopher Morris – Studies in Science Education, 2024
Effective science education is crucial for developing a scientifically literate citizenry, and for many, foundational primary science education experiences play a significant role in defining their long-term science trajectories. However, primary science education has been limited by a dissonance between the poor science trajectories for…

Natália Cândido Vendrasco; Ainoa Marzabal; Adriana Pugliese – Studies in Science Education, 2024
This literature review aims to characterise mediation practices in non-formal science education settings (zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, science centres and museums) based on empirical studies published in the last 15 years and to evaluate their potential in providing visitors with an equitable and inclusive experience, considering their…

Christa Haverly; Elizabeth A. Davis – Studies in Science Education, 2024
The work of elementary science teaching is challenging given the wide array of subject matter most teachers are expected to teach and a systematic de-prioritisation of science at these grades. In this literature review (63 papers; 2010-2020), we use a framework of readiness for science teaching. Using this framework allows us to illustrate…

Jack K. H. Pun; Xuehua Fu; Kason Ka Ching Cheung – Studies in Science Education, 2024
In classrooms worldwide, the use of English to teach science subjects is becoming increasingly common. There is an increasing number of English-as-a-second/foreign-language learners studying science in English. This review examines 66 empirical studies on this topic published from 2000 to 2021. We critically review and synthesise evidence of the…

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,…

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…

Weiss, Kathleen A.; McDermott, Mark A.; Hand, Brian – Studies in Science Education, 2022
Educational initiatives in multiple disciplinary areas call for student engagement in the practice of argumentation (CCSSI, 2010a, 2010b; Mullis & Martin, 2017; NGSS Lead States, 2013; OECD, 2018). In science education, immersive argument-based inquiry (ABI) is one category of approaches which integrates argumentation in all classroom activity…

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,…

Wright, Gary W.; Park, Soonhye – Studies in Science Education, 2022
One response to a pedagogical shift towards student-centred and active learning approaches to promote student learning in STEM is the flipped classroom. However, there has been inconsistency in the design and implementation of the flipped classroom and its impact on student learning. This review systematically analysed 30 empirical studies on…

Ogegbo, Ayodele Abosede; Ramnarain, Umesh – Studies in Science Education, 2022
Computational thinking (CT) has been described as an essential skill that should be learned by everyone and can, therefore, be included in their skill set. Computational thinking uses essential principles in computer science for solving problems, understanding complex systems, and human behaviour. This way of thinking has significant consequences…

Chan, Kennedy Kam Ho; Xu, Lihua; Cooper, Rebecca; Berry, Amanda; van Driel, Jan H. – Studies in Science Education, 2021
In recent years, teacher noticing has emerged as a construct to capture the dynamic and situational aspects of teaching expertise that underlies teachers' in-the-moment teaching decisions and actions. In mathematics education research, in particular, teacher noticing has been studied to understand how teachers attend to, and make sense of,…

Sommeillier, Raoul; Quinlan, Kathleen M.; Robert, Frédéric – Studies in Science Education, 2021
We propose a new instructional theory, the Domain of Validity (DoV) Framework, which offers a new way forward for designing teaching for conceptual change, while also resolving conflicts between existing theories related to common, difficult-to-change conceptions students have about particular scientific topics. We propose that knowledge consists…
