Chen, Junjun; Cowie, Bronwen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
The benefits of connecting school students with scientists are well documented. This paper reports how New Zealand teachers brought scientists into the classrooms through the use of videos of New Zealand scientists talking about themselves and their research. Two researchers observed lessons in 9 different classrooms in which 23 educational videos…

Cowie, Bronwen; Jones, Alister; Otrel-Cass, Kathrin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
International assessment data paints a complex picture of the engagement and achievement of New Zealand students in science. New Zealand was second only to Finland in the top achievers group in PISA 2006, but it also has one of the widest spreads in student achievement, particularly in relation to Mori and Pasifika students. Thus, the challenges…

Wang, Weili; Coll, Richard K. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2005
Experimental physics is seen as an essential part of tertiary physics education. Students are supposed to develop practical skills and advance from closed "cookbook" experiments to open experiment and design experiment procedures independently. As a consequence tertiary practical physics courses increase in the level of challenge…
