Approaches employed by sixth-graders to compare rival solutions in socio-scientific decision-making tasks
Learning and Instruction Vol. 20, No. 3 pp. 225–238
The present study explores the approaches employed by sixth-grade students to compare rival solutions in socio-scientific decision-making situations. Data were collected using three specially developed open-ended tasks. Two of them were administered ...
Implementing a Virtual Learning Environment to Enhance Modeling skills and Collaboration in a Pre-service Teacher Education Science Program: Students' Ideas about a Blended e-Learning Approach.
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2005 (Jun 27, 2005) pp. 560–567
This paper reports on a research study targeted at a) the development of modeling skills of pre-service teachers, through the use of Stagecast Creator and b) the enhancement of collaboration among students, through the use of WebCT. Participants...
A study of students' heuristics and strategy patterns in web-based reciprocal peer assessment for science learning
Internet and Higher Education Vol. 29, No. 1 (April 2016) pp. 12–22
This study examined the strategies of undergraduate student teachers participating in web-based reciprocal peer-assessment and how they were associated with learning gains in an inquiry-oriented, science learning environment. Twenty-seven...
Journal of Research in Science Teaching Vol. 48, No. 8 (October 2011) pp. 919–951
The purpose of this study was to investigate whole classroom discourse during modeling-based learning in science, seeking to describe the discourse's characteristics, its relation to the micro-context in which it took place and to the student...
Enhancing Fourth Graders’ Ability to Interpret Graphical Representations Through the Use of Microcomputer-Based Labs Implemented Within an Inquiry-Based Activity Sequence
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching Vol. 26, No. 1 (January 2007) pp. 75–99
This article reports on a research effort that investigated whether the use of Microcomputer-Based Labs (MBLs), implemented within an inquiry-based activity sequence on phase transformations (melting and freezing), contributes to the development of...
