Personalizing and Contextualizing Multimedia Case Methods in University-Based Teacher Education: An Important Modification for Promoting Technological Design in School Science
Research in Science Education Vol. 39, No. 1 (January 2009) pp. 93–109
Results of various studies suggest that multimedia "case methods" (activities associated with case documentaries) have many benefits in university-based teacher education contexts. They can, for example, help to "bridge the gap" between perspectives ...
Web-mediated Student-led Collaborative Science & Technology Projects: Transcending our Current Educational Paradigm
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2005 (Jun 27, 2005) pp. 1831–1835
To enable student-directed, open-ended scientific investigations and invention projects, a Web site, called 'Science Project Central' has been developed. Qualitative data—including transcripts of on-line discussions, samples of off-line recordings...
The Promise of Multi-Media Case Methods: Promoting Science, Technology, Society and Environment (STSE) Perspectives in Science Teacher Education
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2004 (2004) pp. 2961–2965
Although rhetoric of science, technology, society and environment (STSE) education has gained some force in science education, practice has not necessarily followed. Teacher education programs can play a critical role in helping prospective teachers ...
