Anderson, Carrie L.; Miller, Brant G.; Eitel, Karla Bradley; Veletsianos, George; Eitel, Jan U. H.; Hougham, Robert J. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2015
Environmental education authors have argued for cultivating a relationship with nature and the outdoors, and have urged parents to "unplug" their children from technology. In this perspective, technology is seen as curtailing ties to the environment and its use needs to be limited. In this paper, we consider the idea that while…

MacIsaac, Dan; Cole, Rebecca Pollard; Cole, David M.; McCullough, Laura; Maxka, Jim – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2002
Examines the differences in paper-based and web-based administrations of a commonly used assessment instrument, the Force Concept Inventory (FCI). Results demonstrated no appreciable difference on FCI scores or FCI items based on the type of administration. Concludes that the web-based administration of the FCI appears to be as efficacious as the…

MacKinnon, Gregory R.; McFadden, Charles P.; Forsythe, Therese – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2002
Computer technology has afforded opportunities to design science curriculum experiences that capitalize on hypertext environments. Though these settings may provide students with flexibility as they explore science, the question remains, Does science inherently favor sequential approaches to curriculum? Addresses the tension this creates using an…

Hawkey, Roy – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2001
Proposes a variety of criteria for evaluating the potential of natural history museum websites for enhancing student learning in science, especially in those aspects of the science curriculum concerned with processes, methods, evidence, and interpretation. Reveals a diversity of perspectives and assumptions about the scientific research undertaken…

Akpan, Joseph P. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2001
Reviews empirical and theoretical issues associated with inserting computer simulations into biological instruction to help students better understand science concepts. The available empirical research on simulations suggests that simulated dissection and actual dissections typically lead to equivalent performance on achievement tests, simulations…

MaKinster, James G.; Barab, Sasha A.; Keating, Thomas M. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2001
Reports on the design and implementation of a project-based learning environment for a graduate seminar that immersed students in a real-world context. This seminar experience was organized around the design and creation of a real-world "tangible artifact", the Internet Learning Forum (ILF), and embodied many of the design principles for…

Mesarch, M. A.; Meyer, S. J.; Gosselin, D. C. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2000
Describes a program created by the Nebraska Earth Science Education Network (NESEN) called "Students and Teachers Exchanging Data, Information and Ideas (STEDII)" for K-12 audiences that emphasizes data collection mixed with weather education. Compares and contrasts the vision for STEDII from NESEN's and the participant teachers' points of view.…

Kumar, David D.; Helgeson, Stanley L. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2000
Studies the effect of gender on a computer-based approach to solving stoichiometric chemical equations. Implies that the feedback provided by the software might have had an effect on reducing the gender gap. However, upon closer examination, the results showed that the correctness means for males were higher than that for females, and the rate of…

Hargis, Jace – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2000
Reports on a study designed to illustrate the need for self-regulated learning when using the Internet for education. Two alternate forms of an on-line instructional web site containing the same information were developed. Results indicated that typical learner characteristics were not road blocks to on-line learning. (Author/MM)

Koul, Ravinder; Rubba, Pete – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 1999
Validates a Personal Internet Teaching Efficacy Beliefs Scale (PITEBS) using a sample of 389 inservice teachers who were participants in an Internet-based professional development project. The scale was then used to assess changes in self-efficacy beliefs among 155 participants in summer workshops. The PITEBS appears ready to be utilized for…

Winslow, Joseph; Smith, Douglas – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 1998
Reports on a study in which five undergraduate education majors mentored six at-risk middle school science students using real-time (synchronous) chat technology. Results of the analysis indicate that the participating middle school science students, over the course of the project, asked more thoughtful questions, remained on task, and perceived…
