Koster, Edwin; de Regt, Henk W. – Science & Education, 2020
While a conception of science as value free has been dominant since Max Weber defended it in the nineteenth century, recent years have witnessed an emerging consensus that science is not -- and cannot be -- completely free of values. Which values may legitimately influence science, and in which ways, is currently a topic of heated debate in…

Alcantara, Marlon C.; Braga, Marco; van den Heuvel, Charles – Science & Education, 2020
This paper discusses the potential of the creation and analysis of historical networks as didactic strategies in science education. To this end, we first argue the importance of combining critical approaches of the history of science with historical network research. This will be followed by a report of an empirical experiment in which the history…

Zidny, Robby; Sjöström, Jesper; Eilks, Ingo – Science & Education, 2020
Indigenous knowledge provides specific views of the world held by various indigenous peoples. It offers different views on nature and science that generally differ from traditional Western science. Futhermore, it introduces different perspectives on nature and the human in nature. Coming basically from a Western perspective on nature and science,…

Furtak, Erin Marie; Penuel, William R. – Science Education, 2019
In recent years, the focus of science education reform has shifted to engaging students in three-dimensional science learning experiences aligned with the National Research Council's (2012) Framework for K-12 Science Education. This movement has been associated with a focus on students participating in science as practice, which represents a…

Sheth, Manali J. – Science Education, 2019
While current science teacher education frameworks designed to support high-quality teaching have the potential to promote equitable science learning, they do not substantively engage with how racism organizes science teaching and learning. In this critical qualitative inquiry grounded in critical race theory and sociopolitical perspectives on…

Kahn, Sami; Zeidler, Dana L. – Science & Education, 2019
Perspective taking is a critical yet tangled construct that is used to describe a range of psychological processes and that is applied interchangeably with related constructs. The resulting ambiguity is particularly vexing in science education, where although perspective taking is recognized as critical to informed citizens' ability to negotiate…

Boesch, Brandon – Science & Education, 2019
It is widely argued that the skills of scientific expertise are tacit, meaning that they are difficult to study. In this essay, I draw on work from the philosophy of action about the nature of skills to show that there is another access point for the study of skills--namely, skill transmission in science education. I will begin by outlining…

Causton, Edward – Science & Education, 2019
In this article, I introduce Robert Brandom's inferentialism as an alternative to common representational interpretations of constructivism in science education. By turning our attention away from the representational role of conceptual contents and toward the norms governing their use in inferences, we may interpret knowledge as a capacity to…

Ariely, Moriah; Livnat, Zohar; Yarden, Anat – Science & Education, 2019
Learning the unique linguistic forms and structures that construct and communicate scientific principles, knowledge, and beliefs is important for developing students' disciplinary literacy. The use of scientific language is apparent in the texts that scientists produce to communicate their findings to other scientists--the research articles. Texts…

Bhakthavatsalam, Sindhuja – Science & Education, 2019
Teaching false theories goes against the general pedagogical and philosophical belief that we must only teach and learn what is true. In general, the goal of pedagogy is taken to be epistemic: to gain knowledge and avoid ignorance. In this article, I argue that for realists and antirealists alike, epistemological and pedagogical goals have to come…

Flynn, Simon; Hardman, Mark – Science & Education, 2019
In recent years, researchers within science education have started to consider the impact of narrative upon teaching and learning in science. This article investigates the possibilities of interactive fiction as a means by which students can be provided with feedback on their understanding in science, and explores the mechanisms which might allow…

Lederman, Norman G. – Science & Education, 2019
How nature of scientific knowledge (NOSK) or nature of science (NOS) and scientific inquiry (SI) are contextualized, or related to each other, significantly impacts both curriculum and classroom practice, specifically with respect to the teaching and learning of NOSK. NOS and NOSK are considered synonymous here, with NOSK more accurately conveying…

Galili, Igal – Science & Education, 2019
This study considers the short list of Nature of Science (NOS) features frequently published and widely known in the science education discourse. It is argued that these features were oversimplified and a refinement of the claims may enrich or sometimes reverse them. The analysis shows the need to address the range of variation in each particular…

Cofré, Hernán; Núñez, Paola; Santibáñez, David; Pavez, José M.; Valencia, Martina; Vergara, Claudia – Science & Education, 2019
There is widespread agreement that an adequate understanding of the nature of science (NOS) is a critical component of scientific literacy and a major goal in science education. However, we still do not know many specific details regarding how students and teachers learn particular aspects of NOS and what are the most important feature traits of…

Morales-Doyle, Daniel; Childress Price, Tiffany; Chappell, Mindy J. – Science Education, 2019
This article examines the tensions that arose as teachers, scientists, youth, and community organizers worked to develop a curriculum that was responsive to community concerns and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Within the context of urban heavy metal contamination and building on previous critiques of the standards, we identified…
