Center For Research In Mathematics And Science Education

About this journal. The Polish authorities presented and discussed with the PSF panel of experts the strengths and weaknesses of the Polish R&I system and the rationale behind the PSF Peer Review which will form an important background for the forthcoming reforms of Higher Education and Science. The reforms will be based on three pillars proposed in the new Strategy for Higher Education and Science: Constitution for Science, Innovations for the economy, and Science for You The operational recommendations tackling such issues as models of higher education institutions and their evaluation, career development of researchers, links between the higher education sector and the other actors of the innovation system as well as the internationalisation of the science and higher education sectors, will be released by the PSF panel in September 2017.

Viewing the science classroom as a scientific community akin to communities in professional science is advantageous (although K-8 students … Read more

Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Web Site. SciJourn Project The SciJourn Project uses the practices of science journalism to develop science literacy among high school-aged students. This section provides statistics and facts related to education and science, including information on educational institutions, skills and levels, markets, as well as data on research and development. Melbourne Aquarium – offers education programs for primary through to senior secondary level students, comprehensive teacher resources, student interactive activities and the opportunity for secondary students to undertake work experience.

Victorian Space Science Education Centre (VSEEC) – promotes the learning of science by providing engaging, hands on activities for students and teachers. At the high school level, 95% of mathematics teachers at low-poverty schools had in-field degrees, compared with 87% at high-poverty schools. The Ministry of Education and Science (Bulgarian: Министерство на образованието и науката, Ministerstvo na obrazovanieto i naukata) of Bulgaria is … Read more

Support For Science, Technology, Engineering And Mathematics (STEM)

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. The Science SIG hostedthe research strand of SCICON 2016, the bi-annual conference for science teachers in Lower Hutt, in July 2016. The collaboration with SCICON is intended to make the research-practice nexus more visible. The theme of the research strand, ‘Shaking up science education’ builds on the Conference Theme of ‘Earth shattering science’ and recognises the large number of individuals and groups involved in innovative research projects across New Zealand – from teaching inquiries undertaken by teachers in their own classrooms, to national initiatives seeking to inform science education and the Government’s goal of a more scientifically engaged public.… 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. Education science provides you with an extensive overview of the field of education. You study the roles that learning, education and pedagogics play in schools, educational institutions, and in businesses and political organisations. You focus on societal analysis and studying how we, as a society, should live in future and therefore, what educations and training we will need to do that.

After Year 1, you will specialize in the more advanced study of biology, and either chemistry OR physics OR agricultural science. Throughout the four years, there is a strong emphasis on acquiring practical scientific skills through laboratory work, field work and assignments. In your final year, you will select a research topic. This will develop your skills in analysis, problem-solving and scientific … Read more

Science Education Partnership Award

AAAS programs conduct educational research and development, provide resources for the classroom and other science learning settings and offer professional development for teachers. In 2017, the STEM Partnerships Forum was established as one of the key national collaborative actions under the National STEM School Education Strategy 2016-2026. Chaired by Dr Alan Finkel AO, Australia’s Chief Scientist, the Forum brings together leaders from industry and education to facilitate a more strategic approach to school-based partnerships with businesses and industry across Australia in order to develop the engagement, aspiration, capability and attainment of students in STEM.

The content versus process debate continues and is counterproductive at best. Science cannot be characterized by either content (products produced by scientists) or process (behaviors that bring scientists to new understandings). Effective teacher education programs cannot be developed if science preparation focuses on content mastery and the education component focuses on process. Teachers must learn to … Read more
