Tortajada-Genaro, Luis Antonio – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2014
The learning of solving multi-step problems is a relevant aim in chemical education for engineering students. In these questions, after analyzing initial data, a complex reasoning and an elaborated mathematical procedure is needed to achieve the correct numerical answer. However, many students are able to effectively use algorithms even with a…

Rejón-Guardia, Francisco; Sánchez-Fernández, Juan; Muñoz-Leiva, Francisco – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2013
Microblogging social networks (µBSNs) provide the opportunity to communicate worldwide while using a small number of characters; this is an apparent limitation that forces users to share only essential information when linking to the world with which they interact. These platforms can serve to motivate students by narrowing the physical and…

Gras, Anna; Cañadas, Juan Carlos; Ginovart, Marta – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2013
This work addresses and aims to fulfill a very clear need in teaching biosystem engineering. When introducing students to the complexity of soil processes, one of the frustrations that teachers often experience is the impossibility to demonstrate practically, in the lab, some of the concepts and processes discussed in class. Either the experiments…

Llorens-Molina, Juan Antonio; Llorens de Jaime, Jesús María; Sanz Berzosa, Isidora – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2012
In order to attain a reliable laboratory work assessment, we argue taking the Learning Environment as a core concept and a research paradigm that considers the factors affecting the laboratory as a particularly complex educational context. With regard to Laboratory Learning Environments (LLEs), a well known approach is the SLEI (Science Laboratory…
