Editorial Reviews


"This book is a must read for all teachers, pre–service to decades of experience; of all age groups, from elementary school to college; and for those even thinking about becoming a science teacher. It is, simply put, the best, most informative teaching science instructional resource available. I have been looking for a book like this for years, and now I can happily say, definitively, this is it." — National Science Teachers Association

"This book [is] useful to educational technology and curriculum and instruction scholars and specialists because it includes reviews of historical and contemporary research.... The thoughtful overview of literature, science pedagogy, KI patterns, and classroom examples of information technology may help designers, who lack teaching experience, understand classroom dynamics and best practices." — Teachers College Record

"This book is a good source for graduate students, teachers, researchers and curriculum designers to reflect and construct a different educational environment in the classroom that is conductive toward an exploration of the ‘wonder of science’." — Science & Education Journal

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I appreciated this book very much. It has a very sound conception of learning (learning as inquiry and elaboration, in authoral sense), uses new technogy wisely (it doesn't however take advantage more explicitly from web 2.0 authoral platforms), and proposes a new science learning school and teacher. It is well empirically founded - behind the book is a group of researchers interesented in science learning - and indicates a new direction for good learning in schools. Very, very good.
