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…

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…

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…

Slemmons, Krista; Anyanwu, Kele; Hames, Josh; Grabski, Dave; Mlsna, Jeffery; Simkins, Eric; Cook, Perry – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
Popularity of videos for classroom instruction has increased over the years due to affordability and user-friendliness of today's digital video cameras. This prevalence has led to an increase in flipped, K-12 classrooms countrywide. However, quantitative data establishing the appropriate video length to foster authentic learning is limited,…

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…

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…

Litts, Breanne K.; Kafai, Yasmin B.; Lui, Debora A.; Walker, Justice T.; Widman, Sari A. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
Learning about circuitry by connecting a battery, light bulb, and wires is a common activity in many science classrooms. In this paper, we expand students' learning about circuitry with electronic textiles, which use conductive thread instead of wires and sewable LEDs instead of lightbulbs, by integrating programming sensor inputs and light…

Chao, Jie; Chiu, Jennifer L.; DeJaegher, Crystal J.; Pan, Edward A. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2016
Deep learning of science involves integration of existing knowledge and normative science concepts. Past research demonstrates that combining physical and virtual labs sequentially or side by side can take advantage of the unique affordances each provides for helping students learn science concepts. However, providing simultaneously connected…

Barth-Cohen, Lauren A.; Smith, Michelle K.; Capps, Daniel K.; Lewin, Justin D.; Shemwell, Jonathan T.; Stetzer, MacKenzie R. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2016
There is a growing interest in using classroom response systems or clickers in science classrooms at both the university and K-12 levels. Typically, when instructors use this technology, students are asked to answer and discuss clicker questions with their peers. The existing literature on using clickers at the K-12 level has largely focused on…

Rap, Shelley; Blonder, Ron – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2016
We examined how social network (SN) groups contribute to the learning of chemistry. The main goal was to determine whether chemistry learning could occur in the group discourse. The emphasis was on groups of students in the 11th and 12th grades who learn chemistry in preparation for their final external examination. A total of 1118 discourse…

Weintrop, David; Beheshti, Elham; Horn, Michael; Orton, Kai; Jona, Kemi; Trouille, Laura; Wilensky, Uri – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2016
Science and mathematics are becoming computational endeavors. This fact is reflected in the recently released Next Generation Science Standards and the decision to include "computational thinking" as a core scientific practice. With this addition, and the increased presence of computation in mathematics and scientific contexts, a new…

Leo, Jonathan; Puzio, Kelly – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2016
This paper reports on a quasi-experimental study examining the effectiveness of flipped instruction in a 9th grade biology classroom. This study included four sections of freshmen-level biology taught by the first author at a private secondary school in the Pacific Northwest. Using a block randomized design, two sections were flipped and two…
