Jotse is an international Journal aiming at publishing interdisciplinary research within the university education framework and it is especially focused on the fields of Technology and Science. The Principals as STEM Leaders research project will develop and pilot new approaches to support principals to provide high quality STEM leadership in schools. Delivered by the University of Tasmania, Principals as STEM Leaders will involve around 200 primary and secondary schools in the government and non-government sectors, covering rural, regional, remote and metropolitan areas. A suite of high quality professional learning and mentoring resources developed through the project will be made available for all Australian schools to use at the end of the project, alongside a research report detailing key findings.

In this programme, you will gain theoretical insights and practical skills in both formal and informal educational practices. Your science discipline will be put in a broader societal perspective, and you … Read more

Progress In Science Education (PriSE)

This programme aims to give students the academic and practical skills they need to develop a critical understanding of the role of science education, research and communication in society. grade levels (5th grade science, 8th grade science, biology, and mathematics grades 5-8 and Algebra I) to join our dynamic program for the 2017-2018 year! Science content will focus on Matter and Energy. Mathematics focus will be on algebraic and proportional reasoning for all grades. The computer science (CS) focus for the UTD TRC (March – July 2017) is on preparing teachers to teach computer science (grades 8-12) and prepare for the certification exam. Other activities may include preparing teachers to offer CS camps or clubs on their campuses.

About this journal. A major problem that has befallen science education in Australia over the last decade is a falling interest in science. Fewer year 10 students are choosing to study science for year 11, which is problematic as these are the years where students form attitudes to pursue science careers. 30 This issue is not unique in Australia, but is happening in countries all over the world.

Teaching Science is the flagship journal of the Australian Science Teachers Association. It aims to promote the teaching of science in all Australian schools, with a focus on classroom practices, and contribute to the professional development of teachers of science. Average scores on 2015 NAEP mathematics and science assessments for fourth, eighth, and twelfth grade students who were eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (an indicator of socioeconomic status) were 23 to 29 points lower than the scores of their peers who … Read more

Education And Science

Our faculty members are leading physicians and researchers who are passionate teachers, committed to mentoring and guiding students through every step of their training. the Benchmarks for Science Literacy, and multiple state standards documents. Teachers are held accountable to particular state and local requirements. It is not the role of this report to specify a list of content to be taught. However, it is important to note that what this report says about science learning always assumes that there is a strong basis of factual knowledge and conceptual development in the science curriculum, and that the goal of any methodology for teaching is to facilitate student learning and understanding of this content, as well as developing their skills in, and understanding of, the methods of scientific observation, experimentation, modeling, and analysis.

Interestingly, the study of technology has always been seen as more interesting and useful than the study of science … Read more
