about this item

This book provides a survey of the diversity of science education in the Asia Pacific region in the context of new efforts in science literacy promotion in recent years. A good number of nations in the Asia Pacific have started to invest huge resources in innovating and reforming their education systems so as to nurture and prepare more globally competitive future generations. There are focused efforts on science curriculum reform, enhancing learning, teaching and assessment strategies, investigations of the science content to be taught, as well as the integration and use of Information Technology, etc., all aligned with the goal of developing students’ scientific literacy. Corresponding to the emergence of this new objective, considerable changes have taken place in the content and methods of science teaching. This book will be divided into three parts – 1) science curriculum reforms, 2) science learning and the learner, and 3) science teaching and the teacher – and will conclude with a synthesis of these contextualized within recent developments in science education research in the region and implications for future research.
