Solbes, Jordi; Torres, Nidia; Traver, Manel – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2018
This article analyzes the implications of the use of socio-scientific issues (SSI) in a series of critical thinking competences. For this, a didactic intervention with 3 SSIs is carried out, developed during 16 weeks, in which there were 56 students who participated in a program of education in the sciences. A quasi-experimental design was used…

Abdullah, Helmi – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2018
One of the fundamental problems for the college students is not being able to solve the multi-concept physics problems. The reason is that the problem solving strategies is limited to known-asked strategy (traditional strategy).Though this strategy can only be used to solve the problems of mono-concept physics. Therefore, this research on the use…

Wangdi, Dumcho; Kanthang, Paisan; Precharattana, Monamorn – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2017
This paper attempts to investigate the understanding of the law of mechanical energy conservation using a guided inquiry approach. A simple hands-on model was constructed and used to demonstrate the law of mechanical energy conservation. A total of 30 grade ten students from one of the middle secondary schools in western Bhutan participated in…

Lau, Kwok-chi – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2017
The study evaluated the effectiveness of using short, school lab investigations to teach about the nature of science (NOS). A manipulated lab inquiry approach was used, which modified the investigations in ways that students were compelled to experience certain NOS aspects. An investigation about apple browning was used to teach about the…
