The Future Of Science Education (Science Storms)

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. Honours is available to meritorious students, in either Education or Bachelor of Science. Honours in Education requires the completion of an alternative 12 credit-point honours pathway described in the Bachelor of Education (Secondary: Science) table of units. Completion of the degree is required in the minimum standard full-time duration. Fully certified, well-prepared, and experienced teachers were not evenly distributed across schools or classes.

Transfer students will also benefit from information about common college courses. Credits earned for a class taken at one college or university may transfer to another school if the course was similar to the course that is required at the student’s new school. On average, UK primary schools teach science for 1 hour and 24 minutes a week. Only 42% teach science for our recommendation of two or more hours a week.

The Government is providing funding to Froebel Australia Limited to extend the reach of the Little Scientists program. Little Scientists helps early learning educators to build their skills and confidence in understanding STEM ideas and concepts, so that they can lead fun and inquiry-based learning activities, using everyday materials with preschool children.

Compensation for U.S. mathematics and science teachers was nearly equivalent to that of teachers of other subjects in 2011. What Did We Learn This Time? (PDF).

The Government is providing funding to The Smith Family to expand the Let’s Count early years mathematics program. This funding will enable online delivery of the program, as well as a parent mobile app. Let’s Count supports parents and early years’ educators to develop the maths skills of their kids, so that they start school ready to learn. The Science Education MA will increase understanding of the academic theory of science education. It enables students to critically evaluate research and development in the field, apply scientific ideas to the practice of science education in formal and informal contexts and give insights into contemporary developments in science education.
