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
