Obstacles Confronting Technology Initiatives As Seen through the Experience of Science Teachers: A Comparative Study of Science Teachers' Beliefs, Planning, and Practice
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 8, No. 4 (1999) pp. 291–307
Examines the implementation of current technologies into teacher education and school settings for the purpose of informing other science, mathematics, and technology-reform efforts. (Author/CCM)
The Effect of Data Acquisition-Probeware and Digital Video Analysis on Accurate Graphical Representation of Kinetics in a High School Physics Class
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 19, No. 2 (April 2010) pp. 199–211
The effects of two types of two well-established microcomputer-based teaching methods were examined for their effect on teaching high school students kinetics. The use of data acquisition probeware and digital video analysis were studied for their...
Research in Learning Technology Vol. 22 (2014)
Inquiry has been the framework for guiding reform-based science instruction. All too often, the role of technology is treated tacitly without contributions to this framework. This case study examines a collection of pre-service teachers enrolling in ...
Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities Vol. 18, No. 1 (2015)
Overall, science teaching at the university level has remained in a relatively static state. There is much research and debate among university faculty regarding the most effective methods of teaching science. But it remains largely rhetoric. The...
Technology in Science Teacher Education: Survey of Current Uses and Desired Knowledge among Science Educators
Journal of Science Teacher Education Vol. 11, No. 2 (2000) pp. 131–53
Examines two questions about science education faculty's knowledge and use of technology: (1) are science teacher education faculty using technology in their classrooms; and (2) do they desire to learn more about integrating technology into their...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 22, No. 3 (June 2013) pp. 362–378
In this manuscript, we report the impact of students' usage of a simulator in the preparation of chemical engineers. This case study was conducted using content pretest and posttests, survey questionnaires, interviews, classroom observations, and an ...
School Science and Mathematics Vol. 105, No. 7 (Nov 01, 2005)
Recent science and teacher education reports continue to stress the need for radical changes in the way teachers are prepared to teach science to diverse learners. In response, a three-year intervention project was developed to help teachers in...
International Journal of Online Pedagogy and Course Design Vol. 3, No. 2 (April 2013) pp. 1–24
Active learning strategies (including simulations) have been promoted by engineering education reformers as an effort to move traditional STEM teaching toward more constructivist practices. In this study chemical engineering students were studied...
Collected from the cutting room floor: An examination of teacher education approaches to digital video editing as a tool for shifting classroom practices.
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 11, No. 1 (March 2011) pp. 118–148
Four separate approaches to employing digital video editing were examined with preservice and in-service teachers in an attempt to find common themes. Though selected from a variety of teacher preparation content areas (special education, literacy, ...
Journal on School Educational Technology Vol. 12, No. 1 (2016) pp. 8–17
While research on the use of tablets in the field of education is emerging, existing research on the use of this tool for the purposes of student teaching supervision is very limited. This study aimed to explore the application of iPad tablets for...
