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…

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…

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…

Pareja Roblin, Natalie; Schunn, Christian; Bernstein, Debra; McKenney, Susan – Studies in Science Education, 2018
Grant-funded curriculum development efforts can substantially impact practice and research in science education. Therefore, understanding the sometimes-unintended consequences of changes in grant priorities is crucial. Using the case of two large funding agencies in the United States, the current portfolio review provides insight into these…

Mujtaba, Tamjid; Lawrence, Martin; Oliver, Mary; Reiss, Michael J. – Studies in Science Education, 2018
This review examines how natural history museums (NHMs) can enhance learning and engagement in science, particularly for school-age students. First, we describe the learning potential of informal science learning institutions in general, then we focus on NHMs. We review the possible benefits of interactions between schools and NHMs, and the…

Brock, Richard; Taber, Keith S. – Studies in Science Education, 2017
This paper examines the role of the microgenetic method in science education. The microgenetic method is a technique for exploring the progression of learning in detail through repeated, high-frequency observations of a learner's "performance" in some activity. Existing microgenetic studies in science education are analysed. This leads…

Jack, Brady Michael; Lin, Huann-shyang – Studies in Science Education, 2017
Generations of students are graduating from secondary school disinterested in post-secondary study of science or pursuing careers in science-related fields beyond formal education. We propose that destabilising such disinterest among future students requires science educators to begin listening to secondary school students regarding their views of…

Sjöström, Jesper; Frerichs, Nadja; Zuin, Vânia G.; Eilks, Ingo – Studies in Science Education, 2017
"Bildung" is a complex educational concept that emerged in Germany in the mid eighteenth century. Especially in Germany and Scandinavia conceptions of "Bildung" became the general philosophical framework to guide both formal and informal education. "Bildung" concerns the whole range of education from setting…

Rönnebeck, Silke; Bernholt, Sascha; Ropohl, Mathias – Studies in Science Education, 2016
Despite the importance of scientific inquiry in science education, researchers and educators disagree considerably regarding what features define this instructional approach. While a large body of literature addresses theoretical considerations, numerous empirical studies investigate scientific inquiry on quite different levels of detail and also…

Hasni, Abdelkrim; Bousadra, Fatima; Belletête, Vincent; Benabdallah, Ahmed; Nicole, Marie-Claude; Dumais, Nancy – Studies in Science Education, 2016
Project-based teaching is nothing new; it originates from the work of authors like Dewey and Kilpatrick. Recent decades have seen renewed interest in this approach. In many countries, it is currently considered to be an innovative approach to science and technology (S&T) teaching. In this article, we present a systematic review of what recent…

Thys, Miranda; Verschaffel, Lieven; Van Dooren, Wim; Laevers, Ferre – Studies in Science Education, 2016
This paper provides a systematic review of instruments that have the potential to measure the quality of project-based science and technology (S&T) learning environments in elementary school. To this end, a comprehensive literature search was undertaken for the large field of S&T learning environments. We conducted a horizontal bottom-up…

Davis, Elizabeth A.; Janssen, Fred J. J. M.; Van Driel, Jan H. – Studies in Science Education, 2016
Curriculum materials serve as a key conceptual tool for science teachers, and better understanding how science teachers use these tools could help to improve both curriculum design and theory related to teacher learning and decision-making. The authors review the literature on teachers and science curriculum materials. The review is organised…

Cheng, May Hung May; Wan, Zhi Hong – Studies in Science Education, 2016
Chinese students' excellent science performance in large-scale international comparisons contradicts the stereotype of the Chinese non-productive classroom learning environment and learners. Most of the existing explanations of this paradox are provided from the perspective of teaching and learning in a general sense, but little work can be found…
