Nashon, Samson Madera; Anderson, David; Nielsen, Wendy S. – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2009
The teaching of science, especially at pre-college and teacher education levels has undergone tremendous transformation over the years: from teacher-centred transmission to student-centred approaches rooted in constructivism. Whereas constructivism has been charged with all manner of shortfalls, it still can be of benefit to the way physics…

Chang, Wheijen – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2004
In order to propogate information on the World Year of Physics (WYP) and to promote students' appreciation of the significance of this event, the author devised a riddle about Einstein and implemented it at two high schools in Taiwan, with 95 students which were mainly based on Einstein's publications in 1905. During the game 81% of the students…
