International Journal Of Environmental And Science Education

AAAS programs conduct educational research and development, provide resources for the classroom and other science learning settings and offer professional development for teachers. Science and technology are an integral part of modern life, and as such, it is argued that educational activities and the mass media should contribute to increasing public interest and knowledge about the subjects. Some key issues and recent trends in the development of science and technology are discussed, with particular reference to interdisciplinary education in both primary and secondary schools.

In 1996, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences of the U.S. National Academies produced the National Science Education Standards , which is available online for free in multiple forms. Its focus on inquiry-based science , based on the theory of constructivism rather than on direct instruction of facts and methods, remains controversial. 36 Some research suggests that it is more effective as a model for teaching … Read more

Overview, Preparation Of Teachers

College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado provides excellence in teacher education, counseling, technology and psychology, at the undergraduate and graduate level. reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry provides teaching and professional learning resources that support teaching mathematics through inquiry-based methods and help students learn mathematics in fun and innovative ways. Delivered by the Australian Academy of Science, reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry resources target students from Foundation to Year 10 and are freely available to all Australian teachers.

Science Education Partnership Award

The Center for Mathematics and Science Education Research (CMSER) coordinates research, teacher education, curriculum development and implementation, and dissemination efforts in mathematics and science education, and fosters rich partnerships with educational institutions and organizations throughout the Milwaukee metropolitan area. Teacher education can be evaluated and used to improve existing programs. Science should be exciting for young people, giving them skills and opportunities to improve their futures. But not all young people are inspired by science. Some don’t find it relevant to their lives, or know what careers are available. We want to make sure that all young people in the UK have access to a world-class science education.

Taronga’s aim is to inspire and educate the next generation of conservation scientists. The Taronga Institute will support the essential need for contextual authentic STEM learning and, together with the wider Zoo sites, will provide authentic, interactive learning opportunities in an environment … Read more

Educational Science And Technology

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

Education Sciences

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. Children at the 100 pilot preschools will have access to four play-based ELSA apps, aligned with the Early Years Learning Framework The apps encourage learning beyond the screen through active, child-centred experiences that introduce STEM practices, such as exploring location, patterns and problem solving. Journal of Science Education and Technology -Publishes a broad range of papers covering theory and practice in order to facilitate future efforts of individuals and groups involved in the field.

Performance disparities in mathematics and science begin as early as kindergarten and persist through subsequent school years. The Framework provides a sound, evidence-based foundation for standards by drawing on current scientific research—including research on the ways students learn science effectively—and identifies the science all K-12 students should know.
