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 ...
An Examination of How Science Teachers' Experiences in a Culture of Collaboration Inform Technology Implementation
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 7, No. 2 (1998) pp. 127–34

Computers & Education Vol. 35, No. 1 (2000) pp. 51–63
This case study explores a popular assertion, namely that success in technology enriched science classrooms is gender dependent. We investigate how students respond to substantive changes that accompany a comprehensive integration of technology with ...
Technology, Text, and Talk: Students' Perspectives on Teaching and Learning in a Technology-Enhanced Secondary Science Classroom
Science Education Vol. 82, No. 5 (1998) pp. 569–89
Reports on a case study that examines the teaching and learning impact of technology from the perspective of students participating in a long-term study of technology implementation. The study is situated within the context of the Technology...
Teaming Technology Enhanced Instruction in the Science Classroom and Teacher Professional Development
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 7, No. 2 (1999) pp. 131–143
This paper describes a qualitative case study of Technology Enhanced Secondary Science Instruction (TESSI); a collaborative effort between teachers and researchers to advance technology implementation in high school science classrooms. The case...
Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education Vol. 17, No. 4 (2017) pp. 271–287
In this article, we explore how visitors engage with a science museum exhibit that displays controversial topics. Through a case study methodology, we focus on the Brazilian exhibit "Preventing Youth Pregnancy" that delves into teen...
Resistance and Renewal: Promoting STSE Perspectives in Physics Teacher Education through Multi-Media Cases
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2005 (Jun 27, 2005) pp. 4492–4496
The STSE movement has become part of curriculum documents and policies worldwide. However, STSE has made far less strides in practice. This research explores the implementation of a multi-media case method focused on STSE education in physics...
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 ...
