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…

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…

Hetherington, Lindsay; Hardman, Mark; Noakes, Jill; Wegerif, Rupert – Studies in Science Education, 2018
Science is concerned with understanding the world. As such, engaging with the materiality of that world is integral to both empirical experimentation and theorising within science. However, it has been recognised for some time that the way scientists learn about the world and the way that young people learn about science cannot be simply equated.…

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…

Stern, Florian; Kampourakis, Kostas – Studies in Science Education, 2017
Research in genetics and genomics is advancing at a fast pace, and thus keeping up with the most recent findings and conclusions can be very challenging. At the same time these recent findings and conclusions have made necessary a reconceptualization of genes and heredity, both in science and in science education, beyond the mostly gene-centred…

Pande, Prajakt; Chandrasekharan, Sanjay – Studies in Science Education, 2017
Multiple external representations (MERs) are central to the practice and learning of science, mathematics and engineering, as the phenomena and entities investigated and controlled in these domains are often not available for perception and action. MERs therefore play a twofold constitutive role in reasoning in these domains. Firstly, MERs stand…

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…

Bevan, Bronwyn – Studies in Science Education, 2017
"Making" is a rapidly emerging form of educational practice that involves the design, construction, testing, and revision of a wide variety of objects, using high and low technologies, and integrating a range of disciplines including art, science, engineering, and mathematics. It has garnered widespread interest and support in both…

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…

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…

Martinez-Garza, Mario; Clark, Douglas B.; Nelson, Brian C. – Studies in Science Education, 2013
This review synthesises research on digital games and science learning as it supports the goals for science proficiency outlined in the report by the US National Research Council on science education reform. The review is organised in terms of these research-based goals for science proficiency in light of their alignment with current science…

Zohar, Anat; Barzilai, Sarit – Studies in Science Education, 2013
The goal of this study is to map the current state of research in the field of metacognition in science education, to identify key trends, and to discern areas and questions for future research. We conducted a systematic analysis of 178 studies published in peer-reviewed journals in the years 2000-2012 and indexed in the ERIC database. The…
