Sharma, Runaaz; Sharma, Lalesh Ram – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2017
Scientific literacy education is undermined in literacy education in Fiji. Despite being a critical component of literacy education, scientific literacy is given lip service in the primary school curriculum. Scientific literacy is a critical 21st century skill for all citizens. This conceptual paper argues for an explicit emphasis on scientific…

Aktamis, Hilal; Acar, Esin; Unal Coban, Gul – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2015
It is important to structure children's knowledge and arouse their interest in subjects like astronomy and space. Although we now talk of travelling to the moon, space tourism etc., knowledge about astronomy and space is limited and perceptions of these subjects do not reflect scientific reality. Primary level students often have misconceptions…

Hirça, Necati – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2015
Although science experiments are the basis of teaching science process skills (SPS), it has been observed that a large number of prospective primary teachers (PPTs), by virtue of their background, feel anxious about doing science experiments. To overcome this problem, a proposal was suggested for primary school teachers (PSTs) to teach science and…
