Ponners, Pamela Jones; Piller, Yulia – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
Research shows that well before children can verbalize their thoughts, they often create internal visual models of what scientists are and what they do (Farland-Smith 2012). Therefore, discovering, understanding and recording a student's own stereotypical perceptions are crucial to science instructors, as it is believed that perceptions may affect…
