About this item
In this volume authors address the following question: Given the rapidly changing landscape of science education, including the blurring of boundaries related to when, where, why and who is learning through design and engineering practices, what are the best practices for teaching preservice science teachers how to facilitate and accommodate these activities, assessing learning, designing and developing solutions to ill-structured problems, etc.? A major goal of this book is to help build bridges across diverse research communities in order to foster dialogue and synergies, making particular efforts to bridge the differences between those historically focused on specific aspects of science education and new innovations that can address the next generation standards. The volume features concrete activities, grounded in research, that could be used to unite engineering design and science education in meaningful ways. It also discusses strategies for beginning to break down silos between content areas such as science, mathematics, social studies, language arts, psychology, engineering, etc. and build meaningful cross-cutting connections between research and practice within and across these diverse learning communities.?
