Article
Full-text available
In this conceptual paper, we describe the approach in storylines that builds on principles of project-based learning and focuses on supports for making science learning coherent from the students’ perspective. In storylines, students see their science work as addressing questions and problems their class has identified. We present design principles...
Article

OpenSciEd is an ambitious effort to implement the vision of the Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards broadly across the United States. The premise of OpenSciEd is that high quality instructional materials can play a critical role in transforming science teaching and learning at a broad scale. To achieve its...
Article
Purpose Empirical investigation into the e-learning innovation, FUSE Studios, is both timely and relevant because FUSE is rapidly expanding domestically and abroad and there is continued interest in the interdisciplinary fields of information and learning sciences in the constructs of choice and interest as they relate to the provision and design o...
Conference Paper
Developing an understanding of education as a complex, adaptive system can be useful in helping leaders understand the impact of various interventions on the system as a whole. This paper describes the design of two learning opportunities, which draw on Actor Network Theory, for assisting state science coordinators in exploring complex educational...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This study examined the conjecture that engaging students with contemporary science-related ethical dilemmas and modern methods for deliberative dialogue to negotiate such dilemmas will increase their science capital. About 80 students participated in a World-Café out-of-school event, along with about 20 adults (teachers, parents, scientists, commu...
Article
Full-text available
In the 21st century, what role does interest play in the organization of equitable learning opportunities for young people? Drawing on a large corpus of interview data from a longitudinal study of fifty-four adolescents involved in interest-driven afterschool activities domestically and abroad, we investigate the role of youths’ interests in their...
Article
Full-text available
This study explores how involving education leaders in the process of research can enhance the practical value of research for them. This paper describes: 1) a design process used for engaging US state science leaders in participatory research; and 2) shifts in understanding that state leaders reported based on their participation. The authors expl...
Article
Recent science educational policy reform efforts call for a shift toward practice-focused instruction in K-12 science education. We argue that this focus on engaging students in epistemic practices of science opens up new possibilities for the design of learning environments that support the stabilization of learners’ science-linked identities. Lea...
Article
This study examines how two kinds of authentic research experiences related to smoking behavior—genotyping human DNA (wet lab) and using a database to test hypotheses about factors that affect smoking behavior (dry lab)—influence students’ perceptions and understanding of scientific research and related science concepts. The study used pre and post...
Article
Full-text available
Exploring Databases, an IBI prize-winning module, enables students to conduct epidemiological research on smoking behavior using a database.
Article
The purpose of this symposium is to explore students' scientific argumentation practices in relation to the recently released Framework for K-12 Science Education (NRC, 2011) in the United States. We will present data from four research efforts on pre-kindergarten, upper elementary school, and high school students' science learning in classroom set...
Article
Developments in information technology and digital media offer the opportunity to dramatically reorganize the curricular experiences available to students. This symposium explores elements of a next-generation high school biology course design, development, and implementation project that utilizes a social networking/media platform, facilitates you...
