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,…

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…

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…

Nugent, Gwen; Barker, Bradley; Lester, Houston; Grandgenett, Neal; Valentine, Dagen – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Electronic textiles, especially those that can be worn (wearable textiles) are gaining traction within the P12 education community. The technology provides hands-on learning that is both exciting and personally relevant, especially for females, who have historically responded positively to aesthetics and textile design. A number of studies have…

Lie, Richard; Selcen Guzey, S.; Moore, Tamara J. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Recent reforms in education call for science teachers to incorporate STEM concepts into their curricula. This study explores the association among student and teacher demographics, and student learning of engineering content and attitudes towards STEM after participation in an elementary or middle school engineering-based science curricula.…

Williams, Tory; Singer, Jonathan; Krikorian, Jacqueline; Rakes, Christopher; Ross, Julia – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
The present study examined changes in high school biology and technology education pedagogy during the first year of a three-year professional development (PD) program using the INSPIRES educative curriculum. The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) calls for the integration of science and engineering through inquiry-based pedagogy that shifts…

Luo, Wenjing; Wei, Hsin-Ro; Ritzhaupt, Albert D.; Huggins-Manley, A. Corinne; Gardner-McCune, Christina – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Numerous studies have been undertaken to design, develop, and provide validity evidence for using instruments to measure students' attitudes toward STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). This study presents validity evidence of scores produced from the S-STEM measurement tool and used to evaluate changes in attitudes during an…

Vallett, David B.; Lamb, Richard; Annetta, Leonard – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
This research represents an unforeseen outcome of the authors' National Science Foundation Innovation Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) program grant in science education. The grant itself focused on the use of serious educational games (SEGs) in the science classroom, both during and after school, to teach science content…

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…

Delahunty, Thomas; Seery, Niall; Lynch, Raymond – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
Currently, there is significant interest being directed towards the development of STEM education to meet economic and societal demands. While economic concerns can be a powerful driving force in advancing the STEM agenda, care must be taken that such economic imperative does not promote research approaches that overemphasize pragmatic application…
