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…

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…

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…

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…

Potvin, Patrice; Hasni, Abdelkrim – Studies in Science Education, 2014
The relationship that exists between students and science and technology (S&T) is a complex and important one. If it is positive, then social, economic and environmental consequences are to be expected. Yet, many problems of interest/motivation/attitude (I/M/A) towards S&T have been recorded. A lot of research has been conducted on this…

Avraamidou, Lucy – Studies in Science Education, 2014
Over the past 10?years an increasing number of articles have been published in leading science education journals that report on research about teacher identity and describe interventions that support teacher identity development. My purpose in this review paper is to examine how the construct of science teacher identity has been conceptualised…

Sadler, Troy D. – Studies in Science Education, 2009
This paper presents situated learning as a theoretical framework for conceptualising new ways to approach science education. Key constructs associated with this framework, including communities of practice, Discourse and identity, are introduced. I advance an argument to develop classroom communities of practice based on engaged citizenship…

Gorard, Stephen; See, Beng Huat – Studies in Science Education, 2009
In this paper we combine the findings from two recent studies relating to participation and attainment in school science --a re-analysis of existing official data for England and a review of wider international research evidence in the literature relevant to the UK. Although the secondary data are drawn mainly from England, the comprehensiveness…
