The Journal of Technology and Science Education (JOTSE) has been created as a contribution to the development and improvement of scientific and technological education by constituting a common space to share experiences to all those who, somehow, are involved in the teaching and learning processes of engineering studies, in all modalities. Science education is evolving once again-as it has since the emergence of public schools in the United States-to a focus on mastering basic concepts and skills that can be used in new situations. Yet, in order to truly accomplish this, contexts need to be established first. Concepts and process skills are desirable end points. But if real learning is to occur, concepts and skills cannot be approached directly and used as organizers for courses and instruction. Without the proper background, students do not understand and are rarely able to use the information and skills that are taught. This explains … Read more
The Science Education MA aims to reflect contemporary theory in all aspects of practice in science education: international, formal and informal. You can study education science at either Aarhus Campus or Emdrup Campus in Copenhagen. As a student at the Danish School of Education, your place of study will be Denmark’s largest research and teaching environment within learning and education. You will be part of the whole department’s study environment, which also consists of Master’s students from various programmes. Education science has a vibrant study environment at both Aarhus Campus and Emdrup Campus, where you can get involved in various associations.
practice (see Lehrer and Schauble, 2006). The science-as-practice perspective invokes the notion that learning science involves learning a system of interconnected ways of thinking in a social context to accomplish the goal of working with and understanding scientific ideas. This perspective stresses how conceptual understanding of natural systems is … Read more
The Education Encyclopedia is a resource for professional educators as well as students in an education program. At the middle school level, in 2011, 75% of mathematics teachers in low-poverty schools had in-field degrees, compared with 63% of teachers at high-poverty schools. Research and evidence will sit at the heart of good teaching practice. By providing compelling educational research, we’ll influence education policy and make sure that evidence is used to support change and improve teaching and learning.
Together with Dr. Jamie Shuda, Steve Farber created a Science Outreach Program, Project BioEYES, that incorporates life science and laboratory education using zebrafish. The outreach program has two main components: educating teachers through hands-on training and tours of our zebrafish facility, and bringing the zebrafish to K-12th grade classrooms for hands-on experiments. The program teaches students about science literacy, genetics, the experimental process, and the cardiovascular system through the use of live … Read more
Egitim ve Bilim-Education and Science (EGIT BILIM) Journal Impact, Impact Factor, IF, number of article, detailed information and journal factor. The master specialization Educational Science is designed for students who wish to become experts in the field of learning processes and development in educational settings. Share your knowledge and views, make science and mathematics meaningful. You will acquire a strong practical and theoretical preparation for teaching. The course covers professional teaching, special education, international education, and information and communications technology.
This strand focuses attention on students’ understanding of science as a way of knowing: the nature of scientific knowledge, the nature of theory and evidence in science, and the sources for, justification of, and certainty of scientific knowledge. It also includes students’ reflection on the status of their own knowledge. College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado provides excellence in teacher education, counseling, technology and … Read more
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. Carey, 1985; Chi, Feltovich, and Glaser, 1981; Goswami and Brown, 1989; see also the discussion in Chapter 5 ). Not surprisingly, both children’s and adults’ scientific reasoning tends to be strongest in domains in which their knowledge is strongest. Therefore, if the goal is to advance the leading edge of children’s scientific reasoning, their instruction needs to be grounded in contexts that also build on their relatively robust understanding of content. There is also mounting evidence that knowledge of scientific explanations of the natural world is advanced through generating and evaluating scientific evidence. For example, instruction designed to engage students in model-based reasoning advances their conceptual understanding of natural phenomena (see, for example, Brown and Clement, 1989; Lehrer et al., 2001; Stewart, Cartier, … Read more
