Based on Millar, the main ideas of science education are to ensure the students to gain an understanding of scientific knowledge as it is appropriate to their needs, interests and capacities and also to develop knowledge about science by understanding the methods and skills. In order to achieve this aim, the practical work that was conducted in school must emphasize the theory that has been taught through practical activities. Moreover, the needs of practical work in curriculum will be connected to the main purpose of practical work which is to possess student’s scientific knowledge to be best seen, judged and enables communication rather than enquiry. This is because practical work involves action and reflection where most of the practical tasks requires students to develop their thinking skills and science process skills (Millar, 2004). As we see the pattern of student’s interest in school, they prefer to be more active in class and able to centralized their ideas and opinion.
in computer science and wants to create educational technology that will compelling and engaging. This article fits with my research because it talks about the positive outcome artificial intelligence can have in the educational field. It is fairly simple to read and was helpful by proving the positive impact. It address the pros and cons about the educational AI that could be used to help students with courses they are having difficulties
Understanding existing knowledge and creating new knowledge are two essential and central aspects of higher education design and implementation model to solve problems in various fields of the society. Both these aspects must be taken as objectives while planning and designing curriculum in higher education system. By giving equal importance to the student’s knowledge enhancement and student’s involvement in new knowledge creation, higher education can reach its goal. Student centric curriculum design and implementation should focus on imparting the information in respective subjects effectively to enhance the knowledge of the students and utilizing these knowledge to progress further by creating new knowledge through research. Thus the two essential ingredients of student centric curriculum design and implementation are again innovation in knowledge imparting methodologies and involvement of students in research.
After carefully evaluating my abilities, desire to widen and reform my knowledge and aspiration to advance my career, I wish to pursue a Master’s degree in Computer Science at College. My goal is to work on the contemporary issues in the Information Technology industry and employ the knowledge to provide better solutions to the complex IT challenges. In the years to come, I envision myself as a lead architect designing systems which will get smarter and more customizable through interactions with data, devices and people. My whole life has been a multi-faceted learning curve which has prepared me to take the academic challenges of the graduate life. Being good in science, mathematics and having a natural inclination towards programming since early school days has shaped my future ambitions.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Sometimes Arts is included, changing the acronym to STEAM. Although there are many circumstances that contribute to choosing a STEM career, positive role models are the most influential in empowering adolescents to choose an education in STEM. Currently in the United States, while the dependence on STEM workers is increasing, the interest
Work-based. Freeth et al. (2005) describe different types of interactive education: for example, IPE curricula in which seminars and conventions are included; situations in which case studies are solved together by students of different backgrounds; moments of learning based on the solution of problems (PBL). The authors suggest a combination of different kinds of IPE in order to motivate the students. The different kinds of IPE programs that are going to be described in this section all fit in these broad clusters but vary in the structure and the implementation.
Being able to reason mathematically is crucial for student success in higher-level math and science courses, as well as a possible career in the STEM field. If students are able to manipulate one object to resemble another object in elementary school, then they will be able to have a better understanding of geometry because they know how to use spatial reasoning to solve problems. On the other hand, if students struggle with manipulating objects and determining how many small squares fit into a large square, they may not develop the spatial reasoning skills necessary to do geometric problems in higher-level math. Attaining these spatial reasoning skills also provide multiple entry points and access to mathematics as a whole. Students use math skills not only in math classes, but also in other classes such as chemistry, physics, and economics.
Concrete manipulatives allow for learners to understand concepts before creating connections. Concrete manipulatives also encouraged to be used with learners wo have learning disabilities which makes them understand key concepts even better (Deborah 2004:11). As learners progress in mathematics, they also go through the different stages of using concrete manipulatives. Stage 1 is known as the Concrete Stage; Learners use concrete manipulative extensively when participating in mathematics tasks. For example learners use a lot of counters to perform addition and subtraction bonds.
According to Cox (2009) technology has replaced textbooks and it prepares students for the future. Early childhood is the foundation where using technology has completely transformed the way we live or lives and developing these technological skills in students so they will be prepared to enter the workforce once they complete their schooling. Morgan (2017) discusses how credibility is important to research study because it is crucial to gathering the most up to date and relevant information for your research in order to establish credibility within your writing. It is also a way to prove that the qualifications, experience and education of the author are credible. Walsh(2012) suggest that Effective evaluation of the credibility of sources
Evolving methodologies for curriculum and instruction are essential to improving how we educate. McMillian positions that essential to this is understanding the value of scientific inquiry. He explains, “the principles of scientific inquiry provide the foundation for conducting studies…analyzing educational problems, making decisions, and designing, conducting, reporting, and evaluating” (McMillian, 2016, p. 7) to provide significant benefits for engaging students and affecting achievement. Among the changing methodologies is the consensus that the use of STEM-education concepts are necessary to prepare students for 21st century skill-building. Subsequently, this has led to an instructional methodology that highlights math-centered curriculum, and the instruction of science and technology as independent of core content.
