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…

Cosio, Mario N.; Williamson, Vickie M. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
The goal of this study was to investigate the timing of online homework completion and its effects on student performance. Data was collected from two large, first-semester general chemistry sections at a southwestern university. Specifically, this study aims to explore the link between when students complete their homework relative to the date…

Lamb, Richard L.; Etopio, Elisabeth – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This study investigates the role that textbooks, virtual reality (VR), and mixed approaches (i.e., text and VR) can play in the development of the two writing types, summary and argument writing. This study uses hemodynamics as a proxy for learning. Differences in hemodynamic responses during writing tasks were measured across four different…

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…

Tan, Michael – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
When considering science education within the makerspace (engineering workshop) context, insufficient attention may be paid to the cultural models organising the learning activity in such spaces. Too often, learning is imagined to be orchestrated by instructors, and students are supposed to passively respond to activities and events planned on…

Cuperman, Dan; Verner, Igor M. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This article considers student analogical reasoning associated with learning practice in creating bio-inspired robots. The study was in the framework of an outreach course for middle school students. Fifty eighth and ninth graders performed inquiries into behavior and locomotion of snakes and designed robotic models using the BIOLOID robot…

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.…

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…

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…

Kapici, Hasan Ozgur; Akcay, Hakan; de Jong, Ton – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Although hands-on laboratory experiments are traditionally used in schools, virtual laboratories have entered today's classrooms, due to their specific affordances. In this study, we compared the effect of using hands-on and virtual laboratories in isolation to two different combinations on middle school (7th grade) students' acquisition of…

Chu, Man-Wai; Leighton, Jacqueline P. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Digitally simulated laboratory assessments (DSLAs) may be used to measure competencies such as problem solving and scientific inquiry because they provide an environment that allows the process of learning to be captured. These assessments provide many benefits that are superior to traditional hands-on laboratory tasks; as such, it is important to…

De Leo-Winkler, M. A.; Wilson, G.; Green, W.; Chute, L.; Henderson, E.; Mitchell, T. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
The Deaf have often been overlooked when designing informal STEM education and public outreach activities. Astronomers at UC Riverside and teachers at the California School for the Deaf, Riverside (CSDR), have designed an astronomy workshop aimed specifically for the Deaf using the school's on-site sound lab. We have used astronomy for this…

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…

Seah, Ying Ying; Magana, Alejandra J. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Experimentation is one of the important strategies used in engineering design to understand the relationship between relevant variables so that they can be manipulated to generate optimized solution for a particular problem or design. The understanding of students' experimentation strategies allows educators to help students improve their design…
