Smith, Emma; White, Patrick – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Problems with the supply of highly skilled science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workers have been reported by employers and governments for many decades, in the UK, the USA, and elsewhere. This paper presents some key findings from a project funded by the Nuffield Foundation that examined patterns of education and employment…

Zhao, Yong – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This paper is a caution to the overemphasis on STEM in schools. Human talents and interests are extremely diverse for all sorts of reasons (nature via nurture). However, not all talents and skills have equal utility value in all societies. Thus, societies tend to suppress some and support others (via education or social policies). STEM represents…

Hill, Christopher T. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
In this paper, I briefly review the concept of the Post-Scientific Society and then present some of the confirming evidence for the aptness of the concept. This leads to important implications for how we should think about education and workforce development in the twenty-first century. Both require the incorporation of a very high cognitive level…

Suter, Larry E.; Camilli, Gregory – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Comparisons of US student achievement to other countries, conducted since the 1960s, have received extensive media coverage in the USA. Policy studies have cited these comparisons as evidence that the quality of US educational performance in mathematics and science requires federal intervention. Policy makers have been particularly concerned that…

Hira, Ron – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Outsourcing is a business strategy to cut costs by relocating jobs from high-cost countries, like the USA, to low-cost ones, like India. The practice involves moving the jobs and transferring knowledge, technologies, and capabilities. Outsourcing has been growing in scale and scope in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) occupations,…

Salzman, Hal; Lieff Benderly, Beryl – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
The relationship between education policy and workforce policy has long been uneasy. It is widely believed in many quarters of American society that the U.S. education system is in decline and, what's more, that it bears significant responsibility for a wide range of social ills, including stagnant wages, increasing inequality, high unemployment,…

Simpson, Amber; Anderson, Alice; Maltese, Adam V. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
A lot of attention has been given to the role failure plays in learning and innovation. Yet, we know little about the conditions necessary for the experience to result in positive outcomes. In this study, we sought to answer three research questions: (1) What is the relationship among attend, interpret, and respond when experiencing failures…

Starr, Christine R.; Anderson, Barrett R.; Green, Katherine A. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Women are less likely to choose physical Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (pSTEM) majors, partly because a lack of role models makes it hard for women to imagine themselves as successful in those fields. Possible self-interventions can help people imagine themselves having a successful future. Using social cognitive theory and…

So, Winnie Wing Mui; Chen, Yu; Wan, Zhi Hong – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Multimedia-supported e-learning is considered useful as it can offer an enjoyable independent learning experience to learners. However, the effectiveness of e-learning for self-regulated science learning is still inconclusive. This study aimed to explore primary school students' perceptions and experiences of self-regulated science learning in a…

Badia, Antoni; Iglesias, Silvia – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This study delves deeply into the conceptualization of science teacher identity in secondary schools, as this identity is considered a key variable in determining the teaching of this discipline. The aim of this article is twofold: to understand the relationship among several components that conform to this identity and the use of technology for…

Bressler, Denise M.; Bodzin, Alec M.; Eagan, Brendan; Tabatabai, Sara – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
According to the National Research Council, the ability to collaboratively solve problems is of the utmost importance in scientific careers, yet students are not exposed to learning experiences that promote such expertise. Recent studies have found that interdependent roles used within collaborative mobile games are an effective way to scaffold…

Bahcivan, Eralp; Gurer, M. D.; Yavuzalp, N.; Akayoglu, S. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
With the rapid developments in technology, training of pre-service teachers in terms of technology integration has become a crucial issue for all stakeholders of education. However, it is important to investigate the relationships among pre-service teachers' teaching beliefs, skills, and educational technology integration competencies before…

Marbach-Ad, Gili; Hunt, Carly; Thompson, Katerina V. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Employers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields report that recent graduates are deficient in important skills such as collaboration and professional writing. Scientific societies and science educators have responded to the gap between student skills and employer expectations by recommending that undergraduate STEM…

Rengel, Raúl; Pascual, Elena; Íñiguez-de-la-Torre, Ignacio; Martín, María J.; Vasallo, Beatriz G. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
In an educational context, multimedia content can be created by the students, by the faculty, or by a third party. With the aim of improving the lab work, motivation, and active learning in introductory electronics courses, several innovative technologies and instructional strategies were considered involving these three possibilities: real-time…

Parker, Caroline E.; Stylinski, Cathlyn D.; Bonney, Christina R.; DeLisi, Jacqueline; Wong, Joseph; Doty, Cassie – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Researchers, evaluators, and practitioners need tools to distinguish between applications of technology that support, enhance, and transform classroom instruction and those that are ineffective or even deleterious. Here we present a new classroom observation protocol designed specifically to capture the quality of technology use to support science…
