Lloyd, David; Wallace, John – Studies in Science Education, 2004
In the last 30 years or so, science educators in the Western world have come to recognise the importance of the social and cultural context in which learning occurs (Cobern, 1993, 1994; Hodson, 1993; Leach & Scott, 2003) and have, through such movements as science, technology, society and the environment (Pedretti, 1997; Solomon, 1991; Solomon…

Malcolm, Cliff; Alant, Busi – Studies in Science Education, 2004
It is in the nature of a journey that it must start somewhere; it is in the nature of research that it must have a focus. The authors begin this review with a summary of science education research that has been done in South Africa over past decades, and the focuses it has chosen. They then critique the research, focusing on the following…

Grotzer, Tina A. – Studies in Science Education, 2003
Considerable research illuminates the development of causal understanding. However, the research base is hardly a coherent whole. Some is based in research on children's understanding of particular science concepts. Some grows out of social psychology and considers how one attributes intentions and behaviors. Some comes from the developmental…

Solomon, Joan – Studies in Science Education, 2003
Not being listened to, or having their advice mistrusted, is a daily problem for teachers and parents, as well as for doctors, scientists, technologists and other experts. It is also a serious dilemma in applied social psychology (Eiser, 1986) as well as in education where educators talk persuasively with strong evidence about not taking drugs,…

Koul, Ravinder – Studies in Science Education, 2003
Worldview theory in science education has generally proceeded from an assumption that there exist distinguishable entities called "science" and "indigenous knowledge" in all times and every place in the world. This assumption has been the philosophical ground point of typologies that describe the relationship between science…
