Peppler, Kylie; Wohlwend, Karen; Thompson, Naomi; Tan, Verily; Thomas, AnnMarie – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
While circuitry lessons have traditionally been first introduced in late elementary school, they remain challenging conceptually for undergraduates in physics and engineering courses. Seeking to provide a higher quality and earlier introduction to circuitry learning for young children (ages 3-5), this paper investigates the affordances of…

Johnson, Emily Kuzneski – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This study employed mixed methods to investigate the efficacy of scaffolding self-regulated learning prompts within a whole-body educational game, "Waves." This game was designed to teach middle school-aged children basic concepts of waves by moving their bodies to mimic the motions of waves, physically experiencing different velocities…

Merkouris, Alexandros; Chorianopoulou, Betty; Chorianopoulos, Konstantinos; Chrissikopoulos, Vassilios – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Embodied interaction with tangible interactive objects can be beneficial for introducing abstract scientific concepts, especially for young learners. Nevertheless, there is limited comparative evaluation of alternative interaction modalities with contemporary educational technology, such as tablets and robots. In this study, we explore the effects…

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…

Michaluk, Lynnette; Stoiko, Rachel; Stewart, Gay; Stewart, John – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
Elementary teachers often hold inaccurate beliefs about the Nature of Science (NoS) and have negative attitudes toward science and mathematics. Using a pre-post design, the current study examined beliefs about the NoS, attitudes toward science and mathematics, and beliefs about the teaching of mathematics and science in a large sample study…

Faulconer, E. K.; Griffith, J.; Wood, B.; Acharyya, S.; Roberts, D. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
While the equivalence between online and traditional classrooms has been well-researched, very little of this includes college-level introductory Physics. Only one study explored Physics at the whole-class level rather than specific course components such as a single lab or a homework platform. In this work, we compared the failure rate, grade…

Purba, Siska Wati Dewi; Hwang, Wu-Yuin – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
In this study, we designed and developed an app called Ubiquitous-Physics (U-Physics) for mobile devices like tablet PC or smart phones to help students learn the principles behind a simple pendulum in Physics. The unique characteristic of U-Physics is the use of sensors on mobile devices to collect acceleration and velocity data during pendulum…

Schroeder, Noah L.; Traxler, Adrienne L. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
Many instructors in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields are striving to create active learning environments in their classrooms and in doing so are frequently moving the lecture portion of their course into online video format. In this classroom-based study, we used a two group randomized experimental design to examine the…

Gönülates, Emre; Kortemeyer, Gerd – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
Homework is an important component of most physics courses. One of the functions it serves is to provide meaningful formative assessment in preparation for examinations. However, correlations between homework and examination scores tend to be low, likely due to unproductive student behavior such as copying and random guessing of answers. In this…

Ülen, Simon; Gerlic, Ivan; Slavinec, Mitja; Repnik, Robert – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
To provide a good understanding of many abstract concepts in the field of electricity above that of their students is often a major challenge for secondary school teachers. Many educational researchers promote conceptual learning as a teaching approach that can help teachers to achieve this goal. In this paper, we present Physlet-based materials…

Kortemeyer, Gerd – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2016
The study compares the work habits of two student groups in an introductory physics course, one in traditional and one in online sections. Both groups shared the same online materials and online homework, as well as the same discussion boards and examinations, but one group in addition had traditional lectures. The groups were compared with…

Kortemeyer, Gerd – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2016
Classroom response systems (often referred to as "clickers") have slowly gained adoption over the recent decade; however, critics frequently doubt their pedagogical value starting with the validity of the gathered responses: There is concern that students simply "click" random answers. This case study looks at different…

Ceberio, Mikel; Almudí, José Manuel; Franco, Ángel – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2016
In recent years, interactive computer simulations have been progressively integrated in the teaching of the sciences and have contributed significant improvements in the teaching-learning process. Practicing problem-solving is a key factor in science and engineering education. The aim of this study was to design simulation-based problem-solving…

Kuan, Wen-Hsuan; Tseng, Chi-Hung; Chen, Sufen; Wong, Ching-Chang – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2016
We propose an integrated curriculum to establish essential abilities of computer programming for the freshmen of a physics department. The implementation of the graphical-based interfaces from Scratch to LabVIEW then to LabVIEW for Arduino in the curriculum "Computer-Assisted Instrumentation in the Design of Physics Laboratories" brings…

López, Gabriel A.; Sáenz, Jon; Leonardo, Aritz; Gurtubay, Idoia G. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2016
The "Moodle" platform has been used to put into practice an ongoing evaluation of the students' Physics learning process. The evaluation has been done on the frame of the course General Physics, which is lectured during the first year of the Physics, Mathematics and Electronic Engineering Programmes at the Faculty of Science and…
