Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies Vol. 11, No. 4 pp. 313–330
This study examines changes in middle school student teachers' knowledge structures and beliefs related to class management during the final semester of their teacher education program. Twenty-three preservice teachers drew concept maps and...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 27, No. 1 (2018) pp. 1–29
As science grows in complexity, science teachers face an increasing challenge of helping students interpret models that represent complex science systems. Little is known about how teachers select and use models when planning lessons. This mixed...
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 13, No. 1 (March 2013) pp. 41–60
Distance education has potential to reach teachers from diverse areas, but the challenges of building community and promoting reflection in these settings can be considerable. In this study, photonarratives were used as an assignment in a distance...
Science Teacher Vol. 76, No. 7 (October 2009) pp. 49–53
As a "new science," nanotechnology has brought many nanoscale-based applications to the forefront of society. This article describes one such application--a nanosensor that can precisely detect a variety of chemical stimuli in the environment--and...
Learning at the Nanoscale: The Impact of Students' Use of Remote Microscopy on Concepts of Viruses, Scale, and Microscopy
Journal of Research in Science Teaching Vol. 40, No. 3 (2003) pp. 303–22
Explores how educational experience organized around students' use of a world wide web (WWW)-controllable atomic force microscope (AFM) influenced student understanding of viruses. Conducts a unit on viruses for two high school biology classes,...
Helping teachers and students use advanced technology in teaching high school science: A preliminary feasibility study of the use of a WWW-controlled atomic force microscope in high school science
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2001 (2001) pp. 2510–2515
This exploratory study investigated the use of an Internet controlled nanoManipulator and atomic force microscope to allow students to explore properties of viruses. The activity was embedded in a week long learning experience in which students...
Photonarratives in an online master’s course: A viable way to enhance teacher reflection and build community?
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2012 (Mar 05, 2012) pp. 614–618
Distance education has potential to reach teachers from diverse areas but the challenges of building community and promoting reflection can be considerable. Photonarratives were used in this study as a tool to promote reflective practices and to...
International Journal of Science Education Vol. 30, No. 4 (March 2008) pp. 495–514
This study compared students' investigations with an atomic force microscope and viruses in real-time synchronous and asynchronous learning environments. Student interactions with scientists (live videoconference versus email) were examined to see...
Visualizing without Vision at the Microscale: Students with Visual Impairments Explore Cells with Touch
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 15, No. 5 (December 2006) pp. 345–351
Science instruction is typically highly dependent on visual representations of scientific concepts that are communicated through textbooks, teacher presentations, and computer-based multimedia materials. Little is known about how students with...
The Efficacy of Haptic Simulations to Teach Students with Visual Impairments about Temperature and Pressure
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness Vol. 108, No. 1 (2014) pp. 55–61
Traditional science instruction is typically reliant on visual modes of learning, such as textbooks and graphs. Furthermore, since science instruction is often heavily dependent upon visual cues, students with visual impairment often do not have...
Computers & Education Vol. 53, No. 3 (November 2009) pp. 667–676
While there has been extensive experimental research on haptics, less has been conducted on cross-modal interactions between visual and haptic perception and even less still on cross-modal applications in instructional settings. This study looks at...
Science Education Vol. 90, No. 1 (January 2006) pp. 111–123
This study investigated the impact of haptic augmentation of a science inquiry program on students' learning about viruses and nanoscale science. The study assessed how the addition of different types of haptic feedback (active touch and kinesthetic ...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 16, No. 2 (April 2007) pp. 191–202
The classic film "Powers of Ten" is often employed to catalyze the building of more accurate conceptions of scale, yet its effectiveness is largely unknown. This study examines the impact of the film on students' concepts of size and scale. Twenty...
