A digital teaching lab will provide opportunities for rural and regional students to connect with Taronga’s learning programs and Taronga science. This programme is aimed at science teachers, museum educators, those working in all arenas of formal and informal science education at all levels, and anyone with a general interest in the subject.

Graduates of this programme are currently working across a broad range of areas: teachers and lecturers in all phases of formal education, primary, secondary and tertiary; researchers; policymakers; the informal education sector such as museums, field study centres and science centres. Understanding science requires that an … Read more

Educational Sciences

Our faculty members are leading physicians and researchers who are passionate teachers, committed to mentoring and guiding students through every step of their training. Each of the views of science articulated above highlights particular modes of thought that are essential to that view. These views are not mutually exclusive descriptions of science, but rather each stresses particular aspects. Since students need to progress in all aspects, it is useful for teachers to have a clear understanding of each of these components of scientific development, just as they need a clear understanding of the subject matter, the specific science content, that they are teaching. It is also useful at times to focus instruction on development of specific skills, in balance with a focus on the learning of specific facts or the understanding of a particular conceptual framework.

The use of instructional technology in K−12 classrooms has grown, and the number of … Read more

Science And Mathematics Education

About this journal. Science has become an important component in the K-12 curriculum in American schools-but less so than reading and mathematics. At the end of the twentieth century reading and mathematics received more attention, government support, and focus for testing. It was assumed that reading and mathematics must be mastered first and that these skills were essential before the study of science and social studies. Science is often not taught daily in elementary schools, does not receive major attention in middle schools, and is often organized around disciplines that emphasize college preparation in high schools.

The number of high school students who take Advanced Placement (AP) exams in mathematics and science continues to rise. Stewart, J., Cartier, J.L., and Passmore, C.M. (2005). Developing understanding through model-based inquiry. In National Research Council, Committee on How People Learn, M.S. Donovan and J.D. Bransford (Eds.), How students learn: Science in the classroom … Read more
