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…

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…

Peart, Daniel J. – Studies in Science Education, 2022
Science and drawing have been paired for hundreds of years, and this synergy is still prevalent in research investigating the role of drawing for developing and assessing understanding. However, despite research at the primary and secondary levels of education, there is limited research on whether drawing facilitates learning at the undergraduate…

Van Der Leij, Tore; Avraamidou, Lucy; Wals, Arjen; Goedhart, Martin – Studies in Science Education, 2022
This review study synthesises 28 empirical research articles emphasising the learning of morality aspects in the context of addressing socioscientific issues (SSI) in secondary science education. The key interrelated questions we seek to address in this study are how morality is conceptualised in the science classroom in the light of emerging…

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…

Comarú, Michele Waltz; Lopes, Renato Matos; Braga, Luiza Amara Maciel; Batista Mota, Fabio; Galvão, Cecília – Studies in Science Education, 2021
This article aims to map the scientific production concerning the inclusion of people with disabilities in Science Education to promote a reflection on the production of this area. Bibliometric analysis is used to help understand what stage of research a particular subject is at. Publications on the topic indexed at the Web of Science Core…

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…

Chang, Hsin-Yi; Lin, Tzung-Jin; Lee, Min-Hsien; Lee, Silvia Wen-Yu; Lin, Tzu-Chiang; Tan, Aik-Ling; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Studies in Science Education, 2020
In this study, we reviewed 76 journal articles on employing drawing assessment as a research tool in science education. Findings from the systematic review suggest four justifications for using drawing as a type of research tool, including assessment via drawing as (a) an alternative method considering young participants' verbal or writing…

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…

Herranen, Jaana; Aksela, Maija – Studies in Science Education, 2019
Students' questions have an important function in science learning, and in inquiry-based approaches. Inquiry teaching in which the students' own questions are used is promising, but a holistic view of the research and practice is lacking. A systematic review was conducted on 30 articles, both research report articles as well as descriptive and…

Kulgemeyer, Christoph – Studies in Science Education, 2018
Instructional explanations have sometimes been described as an ineffective way to teach science, representing a transmissive view of learning. However, science teachers frequently provide instructional explanations, and students also offer them in cooperative learning. Contrary to the transmissive view regarding explanation, studies suggest that…
