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…

Mills, Reece; Tomas, Louisa; Lewthwaite, Brian – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
There is a need for research-informed instructional approaches that promote school students' deep conceptual understanding of abstract geological concepts. Given that a type of learner-constructed stop-motion animation, 'slowmation', has been shown to offer affordances for learning in science preservice teacher education, we extended its…

Srisawasdi, Niwat; Panjaburee, Patcharin – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Many studies have used the potential of computer games to promote students' attitudes toward learning and increase their learning performance. A few studies have transformed scientific content into computer games or developed games with scientific content. In this paper, we employed students' common misconceptions of chemistry regarding the…

Hite, R. L.; Jones, M. G.; Childers, G. M.; Ennes, M.; Chesnutt, K.; Pereyra, M.; Cayton, E. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Virtual presence describes a users' perception of a virtual reality (VR) environment (VRE), specifically, of their "involvement" (sense of control within a virtual environment with minimal distractions) and "immersion" (multi-input sensory engagement providing apparent realism of objects and interactions). In education, virtual…

Yeh, Heng-Yi; Tsai, Yu-Hsiang; Tsai, Chin-Chung; Chang, Hsin-Yi – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This study investigated high school students' conceptions of technology-assisted science learning via drawing analysis, and explored how students with different degrees of computer experience and science learning self-efficacy may show different conceptions via their drawings. The participants included 335 senior high school students in Taiwan…

Avargil, Shirly – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Chemistry curriculum should account for learning in context and understanding chemistry at the macroscopic and microscopic levels: the symbol level and the process level. The "Taste of Chemistry" learning module, developed for high school chemistry majors (students who choose to study the advanced chemistry program in high school),…

Zhai, Xiaoming; Li, Min; Chen, Siwei – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
As mobile technology becomes more frequently used in science learning, understanding the relationship between student outcomes and the technology's pedagogical features is drawing increasing attention. This study focuses on one pedagogical feature--"who led the use." We first categorized 15 specific uses of mobile technology into three…

Wallon, Robert C.; Jasti, Chandana; Lauren, Hillary Z. G.; Hug, Barbara – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
Argumentation has been emphasized in recent US science education reform efforts (NGSS Lead States 2013; NRC 2012), and while existing studies have investigated approaches to introducing and supporting argumentation (e.g., McNeill and Krajcik in "Journal of Research in Science Teaching," 45(1), 53-78, 2008; Kang et al. in "Science…

Malone, Kathy L.; Schunn, Christian D.; Schuchardt, Anita M. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
The National Research Council framework for science education and the Next Generation Science Standards have developed a need for additional research and development of curricula that is both technologically model-based and includes engineering practices. This is especially the case for biology education. This paper describes a quasi-experimental…

Hsu, Pei-Ling – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
Internships in science research settings have received increasing attention as a means of helping students construct appropriate understandings, practices, tools, and language in scientific activities. To advance student-scientist partnerships beyond the status quo, the study aimed to investigate how cogenerative dialogs (cogens) may help high…

Al-Balushi, Sulaiman M.; Al-Musawi, Ali S.; Ambusaidi, Abdullah K.; Al-Hajri, Fatemah H. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
The purpose of the current study was to investigate the effectiveness of interacting with animations using mobile devices on grade 12 students' spatial and reasoning abilities. The study took place in a grade 12 context in Oman. A quasi-experimental design was used with an experimental group of 32 students and a control group of 28 students. The…

Finkel, Liza – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
Despite decades of efforts to increase the participation of women and people from underrepresented minority groups (URM) in science and math majors and careers, and despite the increasing diversification of the US population as a whole (Planty et al. in National Center for Education Statistics, Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of…

Olakanmi, Eunice Eyitayo – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
This study establishes the effects of a flipped classroom model of instruction on academic performance and attitudes of 66 first-year secondary school students towards chemistry. A pre-test and post-test experimental design was employed to assign students randomly into either the experimental or control group. In order to assess the suitability of…

Kern, Cindy L.; Crippen, Kent J. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
Scientific inscriptions--graphs, diagrams, and data--and argumentation are integral to learning and communicating science and are common elements in cyberlearning environments--those involving the use of networked learning technologies. However, previous research has indicated that learners struggle to use inscriptions and when they engage in…
