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 why science lacks popularity and why most students stop their study of science as soon as they are permitted to do so. Little is gained by simply requiring more for a longer period of time.
Stories about education and learning issues in health, technology, environment, and society. The Australian Journal of Teacher Education (AJTE) is indexed in the Web of Science, Scopus, and A+Education. SCImago ranks the AJTE in the 2nd top Quartile for education journals in the world, 328 out of 914 international education titles and 3rd out of 30 Australian education titles.
This sampling of programs represents some of the ways in which federal resources are helping to assist educators in implementing effective approaches for improving STEM teaching and learning; facilitating the dissemination and adoption of effective STEM instructional practices nationwide; and promoting STEM education experiences that prioritize hands-on learning to increase student engagement and achievement.
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 science.
7. Conduct projects for high school mathematics and science gifted students. The University’s Special Mathematics Examination is not applicable to this programme. We welcome applications from mature students. Mature applicants must apply through the Central Applications Office (CAO) by 1 February. The whole area of public understanding of research (its content, methodology, and implications) has been studied most thoroughly in the United States, starting with a conference at the Science Museum of Minnesota, and leading to a publication by Chittenden et al. (2004), which deals comprehensively with a wide range of aspects.
