Vaino, Katrin; Vaino, Toomas; Ottander, Christina – Science Education International, 2018
In this study, middle school students' (8th grade, n = 24) problem-solving processes were investigated while implementing a design-based science learning (DBSL) approach. DBSL tries to incorporate science learning with the processes of engineering design. A DBSL module was developed by the research team within which students were expected to…

Silm, Gerli; Tiitsaar, Kai; Pedaste, Margus; Zacharia, Zacharias C.; Papaevripidou, Marios – Science Education International, 2017
The use of inquiry-based learning (IBL) is encouraged in schools, as it has been shown to be an effective method for raising students' motivation in STEM subjects and increasing their understanding of scientific concepts. Nevertheless, IBL is not very often used in classrooms by teachers due to different (perceived) obstacles. Within the Ark of…

In the human brain, the neuronal pathways are networks which support our learning, memory and thought, and which work with permanent feedback. However, only 19% of illustrations of these neuronal pathways, in the 55 analysed school textbooks coming from 15 countries, were showing feedbacks. The neuronal pathways related to movements were generally…

Rannikmae, Miia; Teppo, Moonika; Holbrook, Jack – Science Education International, 2010
This article draws attention to the difference between interest and relevance in science education while recognising both can be considered components of intrinsic motivation--motivation for learning coming from students themselves. Research has shown the importance of intrinsic motivation and this study seeks an approach to enhance this through…

Pata, Kai; Metsalu, Eneken – Science Education International, 2008
The notion of environmental awareness has been controversial in environmental literacy. Environmental awareness has been traditionally understood as conceptual awareness, but this study takes into consideration activity-related aspects of awareness, which should be integrated into an ontological model of developing environmental literacy. The…

Holbrook, Jack; Rannikmae, Miia; Kask, Klaara – Science Education International, 2008
The PARSEL project was initiated to disseminate teaching modules, based on a philosophical model, which was in line with a need to promote scientific literacy, in a manner considered to be both popular and relevant for students. The project was based on the belief that this approach would allow students to better realize that science was for all,…
