    Introducing the anatomy of disciplinary discernment: an example from astronomy2014Inngår i: European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, ISSN 2301-251X, E-ISSN 2301-251X, Vol. 2, nr 3, 167-182 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Education is increasingly being framed by a competence mindset; the value of knowledge lies much more in competence performativity and innovation than in simply knowing. Reaching such competency in areas such as astronomy and physics has long been known to be challenging. The movement from everyday conceptions of the world around us to a disciplinary interpretation is fraught with pitfalls and problems. Thus, what underpins the characteristics of the disciplinary trajectory to competence becomes an important educational consideration. In this article we report on a study involving what students and lecturers discern from the same disciplinary semiotic resource. We use this to propose an Anatomy of Disciplinary Discernment (ADD), a hierarchy of what is focused on and how it is interpreted in an appropriate, disciplinary manner, as an overarching fundamental aspect of disciplinary learning. Students and lecturers in astronomy and physics were asked to describe what they could discern from a video simulation of travel through our Galaxy and beyond. In all, 137 people from nine countries participated. The descriptions were analysed using a hermeneutic interpretive study approach. The analysis resulted in the formulation of five qualitatively different categories of discernment; the ADD, reflecting a view of participants’ competence levels. The ADD reveals four increasing levels of disciplinary discernment: Identification, Explanation, Appreciation, and Evaluation. This facilitates the identification of a clear relationship between educational level and the level of disciplinary discernment. The analytical outcomes of the study suggest how teachers of science, after using the ADD to assess the students disciplinary knowledge, may attain new insights into how to create more effective learning environments by explicitly crafting their teaching to support the crossing of boundaries in the ADD model.

    Tell me what you see: differences in what is discerned when professors and students view the same disciplinary semiotic resource2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Traditionally, astronomy and physics have been viewed as difficult subjects to master. The movement from everyday conceptions of the world around us to a disciplinary interpretation is fraught with pitfalls and problems. What characterises a disciplinary insider’s discernment of phenomena in astronomy and how does it compare to the views of newcomers to the field? In this paper we report on a study into what students and professors discern (cf. Eriksson et al, in press) from the same disciplinary semiotic resource and use this to propose an Anatomy of Disciplinary Discernment (ADD) as an overarching characterization of disciplinary learning.

    Students and professors in astronomy and physics were asked to describe what they could discern from a simulation video of travel through our Galaxy and beyond (Tully, 2012). In all, 137 people from nine countries participated. The descriptions were analysed using a hermeneutic, constant comparison approach (Seebohm, 2004; Strauss, 1987). Analysis culminated in the formulation of five hierarchically arranged, qualitatively different categories of discernment. This ADD modelling of the data consists of one non-disciplinary category and four levels of disciplinary discernment: Identification, Explanation, Appreciation, and Evaluation. Our analysis demonstrates a clear relationship between educational level and the level of disciplinary discernment.

     

    The analytic outcomes of the study suggest that teachers may create more effective learning environments by explicitly crafting their teaching to support the discernment of various aspects of disciplinary semiotic resources in order to facilitate the crossing of boundaries in the ADD model.

    The overlooked challenge of learning to extrapolate three-dimensionality2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Learning astronomy has many learning challenges due to the highly diverse, conceptual, and theoretical thinking used in the discipline. One taken for granted challenge is the learning to 

    extrapolate three-dimensionality. Although we have the ability to see our surroundings in three- dimensional terms, beyond a distance of about 200m this ability quickly becomes very limited. So, when looking up at the night sky, learning to discern critical features that are embedded in dimensionality does not come easily. There have been several articles addressing how fruitful 3D simulations are for astronomy education, but they do not address what students discern, nor the nature of that discernment. Taking the concept of discernment to be about noticing something and assigning meaning to it, our research question is: In terms of dimensionality, what do astronomy/physics students and professors discern when engaging with a simulated video fly- through of our Galaxy and beyond?

    A web-based questionnaire was designed using links to video clips drawn from a well-regarded simulation-video of travel through our galaxy and beyond. 137 physics and astronomy university students and teaching professors, who were drawn from nine countries, completed the questionnaire. The descriptions provided by them were used to formulate six categories of discernment in relation to multidimensionality. These results are used to make the case that astronomy learning that aims at developing the ability to extrapolate three-dimensionality needs to be grounded in the creation of meaningful motion parallax experiences. Teaching and learning implications are discussed.

    What do teachers of astronomy need to think about?2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Learning astronomy has exciting prospects for many students; learning about the stars in the

    sky, the planets, galaxies, etc., is often very inspiring and sets the mind on the really big

    aspects of astronomy as a science; the Universe. At the same time, learning astronomy can be

    a challenging endeavor for many students. One of the most difficult things to come to

    understand is how big the Universe is. Despite seeming trivial, size and distances, together

    with the three-dimensional (3D) structure of the Universe, probably present some of the

    biggest challenges in the teaching and learning of astronomy

    (Eriksson, Linder, Airey, &

    Redfors, in preparation; Lelliott & Rollnick, 2010). This is the starting point for every

    astronomy educator. From here, an educationally critical question to ask is: how can we best

    approach the teaching of astronomy to optimize the potential for our students attaining a

    holistic understanding about the nature of the Universe?

    Resent research indicates that to develop students’ understanding about the structure of the

    Universe, computer generated 3D simulations can be used to provide the students with an

    experience that other representations cannot easily provide (Eriksson et al., in preparation;

    Joseph, 2011). These simulations offer disciplinary affordance* through the generation of

    motion parallax for the viewer. Using this background we will present the results of a recent

    investigation that we completed looking at what students’ discern (notice with meaning)

    about the multidimensionality of the Universe. Implications for astronomy education will be

    discussed and exemplified.

    Who needs 3D when the universe is flat?2014Inngår i: Science Education, ISSN 0036-8326, E-ISSN 1098-237X, Vol. 98, nr 3, 412-442 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    An overlooked feature in astronomy education is the need for students to learn to extrapolate three-dimensionality and the challenges that this may involve. Discerning critical features in the night sky that are embedded in dimensionality is a long-term learning process. Several articles have addressed the usefulness of three-dimensional (3D) simulations in astronomy education, but they have neither addressed what students discern nor the nature of that discernment. A Web-based questionnaire was designed using links to video clips drawn from a simulation video of travel through our galaxy and beyond. The questionnaire was completed by 137 participants from nine countries across a broad span of astronomy education. The descriptions provided by the participants were analyzed using hermeneutics in combination with a constant comparative approach to formulate six categories of discernment in relation to multidimensionality. These results are used to make the case that the ability to extrapolate three-dimensionality calls for the creation of meaningful motion parallax experiences.

    Disciplinary discernment from Hertzsprung-Russell-diagrams2017Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aim at investigating what astronomy students and experts discern from the multitude of different disciplinary affordances available in Hertzsprung-Russell (HR) diagrams. HR-diagrams are central to all of astronomy and astrophysics and used extensively in teaching. However, knowledge about what students and experts discern from these disciplinary representations are not well known at present. HR-diagrams include many disciplinary affordances that may be hidden to the novice student, hence we aim at investigating and describing what astronomy students at different university levels (introductory, undergraduate, graduate), and astronomy educators/professors, discern from such representation – referred to as disciplinary discernment (Eriksson, Linder, Airey, & Redfors, 2014). Data from a web based questionnaire were analysed using the Anatomy of Disciplinary Discernment (ADD) framework by Eriksson et al. (2014). Preliminary results show (1) the developmental nature of disciplinary discernment from the HR-diagram by the participants and (2) the large discrepancy between disciplinary discernment by the astronomy educators and their students. We describe and discuss the qualitative nature of these differences and how this can have implications for teaching and learning astronomy.

    Ämnesdidaktik ur ett nationellt och internationellt perspektiv: rapport från Rikskonferensen i ämnesdidaktik 20062007Konferanseproceedings (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Den 4-5 maj 2006 anordnade Högskolan Kristianstad i samarbete med det nationella nätverket för ämnesdidaktik Ämnesdidaktik ur ett nationellt och internationellt perspektiv, den tredje Rikskonferensen i ämnesdidaktik.

    Den ämnesdidaktiska forskningen syftar till att öka kunskapen om undervisning och lärande i specificerade och tydligt avgränsade ämnesinnehåll. Den söker inte efter innehållsoberoende beskrivningar på en generell nivå, utan istället karakteriseras forskningen av en insikt om det specifika innehållets avgörande betydelse för lärande och undervisning.

    Konferens genomfördes i nätverkets anda och såväl ämnesspecifika som ämnesblandade sessioner genomfördes. Stimulerande diskussioner upp­kommer då forskare från olika ämnens ämnesdidaktik träffas och bryter perspektiv. Ett internationellt perspektiv var speciellt i fokus denna gång.

    På konferensen gavs sex plenarföreläsningar och det presenterades ca 60 forskningsprojekt om lärande och undervisning i skola och högskola av författare från de nordiska länderna. Huvuddelen av svenska högskolor och universitet var representerade. Nationella, nordiska och internationella projekt presenterades och diskuterades.

    I denna konferensbok presenteras ett urval av de på konferensen presenterade projekten. Urvalet är baserat på kvalitet och representativitet.

    Children’s collaborative learning of evaporation scaffolded by iPads2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports on a project aiming to extend the current understanding of how emerging technologies, i.e. iPads, can be used in pre-schools to support collaborative learning of real-life science phenomena. The importance of this is associated with the “west world” problem of current educational systems to respond to the needs of modern youth. Educational systems are currently in need of reform (Fullan, 2007, Thulin, 2011; Tytler, 2007). Research on the potential of web-based technologies to support collaborative inquiry-based science learning in schools, with a special interest in inquiry-based science learning is here continued by investigating the role of time-lapse and stop-motion animations in developing children’s understanding of science phenomena. We report on a study of groups of children working with evaporation. A video-based qualitative analysis of the communication in the pre-school groups has given rise to a number of categories used to distinguish and identify variations of children’s expressed experiences in discussions during group work in different contexts. An enhanced and focused reasoning about the natural science phenomenon in group discussions where the iPad is involved and used for stimulated recall is reported. Furthermore, it is shown that children communicate extensively about practical issues and problem solving, in stop-motion producing contexts, but less about the science phenomenon. However, when the children participate in real-time experimentation, the communication focuses more around the phenomenon itself and less about practical issues. Hence, again establishing the importance of real-time experimentation for children’s science learning. The analysis of the empirical data from the first phase of the project is on going and will be completed during the first months of 2015.  The final results will be presented at the conference.

    Science in early childhood education: children and tablets2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Research aims

    To extend current understanding of how emerging technologies, i.e tablets, can be used in pre-schools to support collaborative learning of real-life science phenomena.

    Relationship to previous research works

    We continue our study of the potential of tablets as scaffolds in collaborative inquiry-based science

    learning in preschools. We investigate the role of Timelapse photography and Slowmation production in scaffolding communication and learning during work with light and shadow. The teaching attempts to synthesise the two domains defined by Eshach (2006) for children´s science learning: content and

    investigations.

    Theoretical and conceptual framework

    The theoretical framework is primarily based on phenomenography focusing on developmental pedagogy. (Marton & Booth, 1997, Pramling Samuelsson & Asplund Carlsson, 2008).

    Paradigm, methodology and methods

    Design-based research (Barab & Squire, 2004) is used to bridge the worlds of academia with the realities of educational practice, to foster viable practices. A mixed-methods approach, including video and qualitative and quantitative data measures is used.

    Ethical Considerations

    The research will adhere to the ethical guidelines of the Swedish Research Council. All participants and children’s caregivers are informed and agree to voluntary and anonymous participation with a right to abandon participation.

    Main finding or discussion

    In this paper we report on an on-going project where children investigate light and shadow by constructing, discussing, formulating and using explanatory models during work with time-lapse and Slowmations. (Fridberg et al. 2016).

    Implications, practice or policy

    The potential of teachers, students and researchers jointly developing, enacting and evaluating learning processes supported by ubiquitous technologies in pre-school will be discussed. Slowmation production focus explanatory models of science experiences and elicits critical aspects of the learning object.

    The role of science in Swedish pre-schools: children’s collaborative learning scaffolded by iPads2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    To extend current understanding of how emerging technologies, i.e. iPads, can be used in pre-schools to support collaborative learning of real-life science phenomena. Research on the potential of web-based technologies to support collaborative inquiry-based science learning in schools (Redfors et al. 2013) is continued by investigating the role of stop-motion animations (Fleer, 2013, Hoban, 2007) in developing children’s understanding of science phenomena, by synthesising the two domains defined by Eshach (2006) for kids’ science learning, content and investigations. The theoretical framework is primarily based on phenomenography focusing on developmental pedagogy (Marton & Booth, 1997, Pramling Samuelsson & Asplund Carlsson, 2008). Design-based research (Barab & Squire, 2004) is used to bridge the worlds of academia and theory with the realities, complexities, and constraints of educational practice, and foster viable practices. A mixed-methods approach, including video and qualitative and quantitative data measures is used. The research adheres to the ethical guidelines of the Swedish Research Council. All participants and children’s caregivers are informed and agree to voluntary and anonymous participation with a right to abandon participation. In this paper we report on the first phase of the project where videos of children’s work with constructing and discussing time-lapse and stop motion sequences of science phenomena have been analysed within our theoretical framework. Stop-motion animations (Fleer 2013) help children, teachers and students to more consciously consider concepts. We see a great potential in work where teachers, students and researchers jointly develop, enact and evaluate learning processes supported by ubiquitous technologies in pre-school.

    This paper reports on a project aiming to extend the current understanding of how emerging technologies, i.e. tablets, can be used in preschools to support collaborative learning of real-life science phenomena. The potential of tablets to support collaborative inquiry-based science learning and reflective thinking in preschool is investigated through the analysis of teacher-led activities on science, including children making timelapse photography and Slowmation movies. A qualitative analysis of verbal communication during different learning contexts gives rise to a number of categories that distinguish and identify different themes of the discussion. In this study, groups of children work with phase changes of water. We report enhanced and focused reasoning about this science phenomenon in situations where timelapse movies are used to stimulate recall. Furthermore, we show that children communicate in a more advanced manner about the phenomenon, and they focus more readily on problem solving when active in experimentation or Slowmation producing contexts.

    Fem elevers föreställningar om organsystem: vad händer i kroppen när vi dricker vatten?2011Inngår i: NorDiNa: Nordic Studies in Science Education, ISSN 1504-4556, E-ISSN 1894-1257, Vol. 7, nr 2, 160-178 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    It has earlier been shown on a group level that it is difficult for 9th grade students (15-16 years old) in a Swedish school to understand how water is transported in the human body. The detailed analysis of five Swedish students in the 9th and final year of compulsory school concerning their ideas about water transportation is presented here. The empirical data consists of drawings, answers to a questionnaire with both open ended and multiple-choice questions, and student interviews. The analysis shows that all the students struggle to produce explanations involving the three organ systems: digestive, blood and excretion systems and they seem to use a variety of explanatory models as basis for their reasoning. Possible ways of understanding this are discussed together with implications for future teaching

    Students' attitudes about the human body and health in school settings2009Inngår i: ESERA: European Science Education Research Association: 2009 conference: 31 August - 4 September 2009, Ankara: Gazi University , 2009, 198- s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In schools and in society it is argued about the importance of living a healthy life. The discus-sions are often focusing on different kinds of food. In this paper the focus is on students’ knowledge about the human body and how this is related to their thoughts about living a healthy life. 88 students in 9:th grade, in one Swedish school, were involved in the study. The study contains drawings and written questions, both open and multiple- choice, and interviews with students and teachers. We report that it is possible for the pupils to transfer knowledge from one context to another, (sandwich and painkiller) concerning pathways in the digestive system. But it is harder for them to connect different organ systems in their explanations, e.g. water's path through the body. More than half of the interviewed pupils believed that there is nutrition in water, but most of them were unable to specify what this nutrition consists of. It was also found that a few students believed that the body stores nutrition and energy when they skip a meal.

    Students' ideas about the human body and their ability to transfer knowledge between related scenarios2012Inngår i: European Journal of Health and Biology Education, ISSN 2165-8722, Vol. 1, nr 1 & 2, 3-29 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Analyses of students’ ideas about the organ system in the human body and how these relate to their thoughts about living a healthy life are presented. The study concerns 9th grade students (15/16 years) in Sweden. The empirical data consists of drawings and answers to written questions, both open and multiple-choice, and interviews with students and teachers. Comparing explanations of a well known scenario (eating a sandwich) to other that are less often discussed (taking a painkiller and drinking water) we report that it is difficult for the students to transfer knowledge of pathways in the digestive system shown in explanations of the sandwich-scenario to the other scenarios. Most difficulties are shown for explanations of the drinking of water, since these explanations require connection of three different organ systems . More than half of the interviewed students believed that there is nutritious substance in water, but most of them were unable to specify what it would be. The students with the most developed understanding of the painkiller pathway were satisfied with taking medical substances to elude pain, and were not interested in other alternatives.

    Ideas about the human body among secondary students in South Africa2015Inngår i: African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, ISSN 1028-8457, Vol. 19, nr 2, 199-211 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we focus on how South African students’ ideas about the human body are constituted in their descriptions of three different scenarios involving the pathway of a sandwich, a painkiller and a glass of water through the body. In particular, we have studied the way in which the students transferred ideas between the sandwich and the painkiller compared with the students’ ability to explain the water pathway. The study surveyed 161 ninth-grade students in five different schools in South Africa. Data collection methods used were: drawings, written questions (open-ended items) and interviews with selected students. The questions emerged from the three scenarios — what happens in the body when you eat a sandwich, swallow a painkiller and drink a glass of water. We report that it is difficult for the students to transfer knowledge of the digestive system horizontally from the sandwich scenario to descriptions of the painkiller and water scenarios. The integration of three organ systems (digestive, circulatory and excretory) to describe the water scenario was even more difficult for the students than the horizontal transfer from the sandwich scenario. The students also showed a diversity of non-scientific descriptions, especially concerning the water scenario. The paper discusses why a large percentage of the students (∼50%) included non-scientific ideas in their descriptions of the water scenario.

    Similarities and differences in students' ideas about the human body and health in South Africa and SwedenManuskript (preprint) (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In both Sweden and South Africa, the science curriculum for the secondary level emphasizes learning about the functioning of the human body. Both curricula also emphasize the importance of living a healthy life. In this paper the focus is on how students’ ideas about the human body are constituted in explanations of three different scenarios, and in what way the students are transferring explanations between these scenarios. The study surveyed 161 9th grade students in five different schools in South Africa, and discusses the results in perspective of a previous study involving 88 students in Sweden. In both countries issues about body and health are discussed in several different subjects in school. The same data collection methods were used in both countries: drawings, written questions (open-ended and multiple-choice items), and interviews with selected students. The questions emerge from three scenarios: what happens in the body when you eat an open sandwich, drink water, and swallow a painkiller. We report that it is difficult for the students to horizontally transfer knowledge of the digestive system to other less well-known scenarios. In comparing the use of three systems in the painkiller-scenario to the horizontal transfer between the sandwichand the painkiller-scenarios we see that the difference is much less pronounced in South African results compared to the Swedish study. There are more similarities than differences between the results of this South Africa study and results obtained in Europe, but there are also differences especially with regard to non-scientific ideas about the human body.

    Ett forskningsprojekt om matematikens roll i gymnasiefysiken2016Inngår i: NATDID:s skriftserie: Naturvetenskapernas och teknikens didaktik, nr 1, 97-101 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Annet (populærvitenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [sv]

    Matematik är ett viktigt verktyg för fysiken och matematiken sägs varafysikens språk. Tidigare forskning visar dock att elever ägnar mycket tid åt matematisk formelmanipulation medan mindre tid och kraft läggs på att relatera fysikens teoretiska modeller och begrepp till verk- ligheten. Syftet med forskningsprojektet vi beskriver här, är att för- djupa vår förståelse av matematikens roll i fysikundervisningen gene- rellt. Vi studerar därför matematikens roll i såväl problemlösningssitu- ationer som lärarledda genomgångar och laborativa moment. Pro- jektet kommer att ge förutsättningar för en ökad förståelse av matema- tikens roll i olika typer av fysikundervisning och för att identifiera i vilka situationer som kommunikationen visar på att matematiken ut- gör hinder eller möjligheter för fysiklärandet. Genom att identifiera så- dana tillfällen öppnas också möjligheten att arbeta för att bryta oöns- kade och stimulera önskade kommunikationsmönster och förstå hur matematiken kan användas på ett konstruktivt sätt i fysikundervis- ningen. Slutsatserna från projektet kommer därför att kunna användas i lärarutbildning, lärarfortbildning och av läromedelsförfattare, liksom av fysiklärare som vill arbeta för att utveckla sin undervisning.

    Reality - theoretical models - mathematics: a ternary perspective on physics lessons in upper-secondary school2015Inngår i: Science & Education, ISSN 0926-7220, E-ISSN 1573-1901, Vol. 24, nr 5-6, 615-644 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the role of mathematics during physics lessons in upper-secondary school. Mathematics is an inherent part of theoretical models in physics and makes powerful predictions of natural phenomena possible. Ability to use both theoretical models and mathematics is central in physics. This paper takes as a starting point that the relations made during physics lessons between the three entities Reality, Theoretical models and Mathematics are of the outmost importance. A framework has been developed to sustain analyses of the communication during physics lessons. The study described in this article has explored the role of mathematics for physics teaching and learning in upper-secondary school during different kinds of physics lessons (lectures, problem solving and labwork). Observations are from three physics classes (in total 7 lessons) led by one teacher. The developed analytical framework is described together with results from the analysis of the 7 lessons. The results show that there are some relations made by students and teacher between theoretical models and reality, but the bulk of the discussion in the classroom is concerning the relation between theoretical models and mathematics. The results reported on here indicate that this also holds true for all the investigated organisational forms lectures, problem solving in groups and labwork.

    Lower secondary students' views in astrobiology2013Inngår i: Research in science education, ISSN 0157-244X, E-ISSN 1573-1898, Vol. 43, nr 5, 1957-1978 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Astrobiology is, on a profound level, about whether life exists outside of theplanet Earth. The question of existence of life elsewhere in the universe has been of interestto many societies throughout history. Recently, the research area of astrobiology has grownat a fast rate, mainly due to the development of observational methods, and the media isfrequently reporting on new research findings. International surveys show that astrobiologyquestions are among those that interest young people the most. The popularity of astrobiologyand the way it captures much science content makes it an interesting area for scienceteaching. However, there is very little research directly focused upon students’ views inastrobiology. The study reported in this paper draws from the answers of 186 Swedish lowersecondary students (16 years old) to a questionnaire, with closed and open-ended questionsregarding their views of issues in astrobiology. The study was guided by the worldviewtheory (Cobern 1991; Cobern, Science Education 80(5):579–610, 1996; Cobern, Scienceand Education 9:219–246, 2000). The results show that even though basic reasoning inastrobiology is known by a majority of the students, there is a considerable number ofstudents, for whom this is not the case. Furthermore, it was found that for all questions, thereare students answering in different ways when asked to describe their own view and the viewthey associate with science researchers. The implications of the study for further researchand for the teaching of astrobiology in science class are discussed.

    Physics and the possibility of a religious view of the universe: Swedish upper secondary students' views2007Inngår i: Science & Education, ISSN 0926-7220, E-ISSN 1573-1901, Vol. 16, nr 3-5, 461-478 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is addressing both upper secondary students’ views of whether it is possible to combine a scientific view of the universe with a religious conviction, and their views of miracles. Students are asked about their own views as well as the views they associate with physics. The study shows that in some cases the students’ own views differ from the views they associate with physics. This we consider to be a possible problem for these students. Through looking at how the students explain the views they associate with physics concerning the issues above, we show that these views are for many of the students intertwined with and linked to other views, that in the students’ views, are part of the worldview of physics. It is common that the students associate scientism with physics. We question whether these kinds of views are necessary for the building of scientific knowledge. Consequences for the teaching and learning of science are discussed.

    Swedish upper secondary students' views of the origin and development of the universe2006Inngår i: Research in science education, ISSN 0157-244X, E-ISSN 1573-1898, Vol. 36, nr 4, 355-379 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The article is addressing how students reason about the origin and development of the universe. Students’ own views as well as their descriptions of physical models are analysed. Data consists of written surveys, and interviews of a subset of the students. Most of the students relate to the Big Bang model when describing the origin of the universe. The study however shows that this can mean different things to the students. The article also addresses views of whether or not the universe changes and of the origin of the elements. When comparing students’ own views with their views of the physics view this study shows that there are students who have a different view of their own than the view they connect with physics. This shows that students, in the area of cosmology, do not necessarily take the view they connect with physics to be their own. Examples of students who handle the physics view in different ways are discussed. There are students who relate not only to science but also to a religious worldview when describing their own view. This shows that when discussing cosmology in class, also a religious worldview can be relevant for parts of the student group.

    Upper secondary students in group discussions about physics and our presuppositions of the world2007Inngår i: Science & Education, ISSN 0926-7220, E-ISSN 1573-1901, Vol. 16, nr 9-10, 1007-1025 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we report on a group activity, based on previous work [Hansson & Redfors: 2006b, Science & Education (accepted)], in an upper secondary physics class in Sweden. The aim was to engage students in a discussion about which presuppositions that are really necessary for physics. During the activity the students were to decide about the physics’ view concerning a number of statements. The overall aims of the study were to gain more knowledge about what kind of presuppositions the students associate with physics, and to identify possible ways to address this with students in class. The study shows that it is common for students to associate ‘scientism’ with physics. This is only to some extent problematised and questioned during the discussions. Furthermore we can see that presuppositions necessary for physics are not immediately recognized by the students.

    Students' socio-scientific reasoning in an astrobiology context during work with a digital learning environment2011Inngår i: Journal of Science Education and Technology, ISSN 1059-0145, E-ISSN 1573-1839, Vol. 20, nr 4, 388-402 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In a European project—CoReflect—researchersin seven countries are developing, implementing andevaluating teaching sequences using a web-based platform(STOCHASMOS). The interactive web-based inquirymaterials support collaborative and reflective work. Thelearning environments will be iteratively tested and refined,during different phases of the project. All learning environmentsare focusing ‘‘socio-scientific issues’’. In thisarticle we report from the pilot implementation of theSwedish learning environment which has an Astrobiologycontext. The socio-scientific driving questions are ‘‘Shouldwe look for, and try to contact, extraterrestrial life?’’, and‘‘Should we transform Mars into a planet where humanscan live in the future?’’ The students were in their last yearof compulsory school (16 years old), and worked togetherin triads. We report from the groups’ decisions and thesupport used for their claims. On a group level a majorityof the student groups in their final statements expressreluctance towards both the search of extraterrestrial lifeand the terraforming of Mars. The support used by thestudents are reported and discussed. We also look moreclosely into the argumentation of one of the student groups.The results presented in this article, differ from earlierstudies on students’ argumentation and decision making onsocio-scientific issues (Aikenhead in Science education foreveryday life. Evidence-based practice. Teachers CollegePress, New York, (2006) for an overview), in that theysuggest that students do use science related arguments — both from ‘‘core’’ and ‘‘frontier’’ science — in their argumentationand decision making.

    An attempt to investigate the use of mathematics in physics classrooms2015Inngår i: Proceedings of the 39th Conference of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education / [ed] Kim Beswick, Tracey Muir, Jill Wells, 2015, Vol. 3, 25-32 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We outline a framework to study the use of mathematics in physics classrooms. The framework focuses on the relations made between Reality, Theoretical models and Mathematics. In this paper the analyses of one teacher and her 3rd year classes at secondary school are presented. The results show that phenomena in reality are often used as a short prelude to put focus on the relationship theoretical model and mathematics. Mathematics is generally used in an instrumental way to handle various formulas without further insight or discussion of the related models or their relation to reality. There is a lack of varied communication with a structural use of mathematics, i.e., mathematics used to support reasoning in relation to a theoretical model, highlighting the meaning of concepts and models in the studied classrooms.

    Science in Early Childhood Education - Teachers' communication2016Inngår i: Abstract Book, 2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    To develop knowledge about how science is communicated by the teachers in the preschool context, specificallyteachers' communication about science while planning the intended object of learning. Preschool teachers'attitudes and perceptions of the mission, and what the child in preschool should and can learn, is of outmostimportance for work with science, but also preschool teachers' knowledge of both science and science education(Eshach & Fried, 2005; Fleer, 2009; Thulin, 2011). However, the mission is manifold and further investigations ofhow different aspects come into play when planning science activities are needed. The theoretical framework isprimarily based on phenomenography focusing on developmental pedagogy (Marton & Booth, 1997; PramlingSamuelsson & Asplund Carlsson, 2008). Design-based research (Barab & Squire, 2004) is used to develop andimplement viable practices concerning science activities with a focus on communication. Video and audio areused to collect data. The research adheres to the ethical guidelines of the Swedish Research Council. Allparticipants and children's caregivers are informed and agree to voluntary and anonymous participation with aright to abandon participation. The video-data collection of teachers planning consecutive activities withchildren focusing the intended object of learning (forces and motion) is on-going. Initially, the teachers tend tofocus prerequisites and other aspects of their mission, the relation to the object of learning will be problematizedduring the symposium. The importance of content specific and educational knowledge, and teachers'experiences of their mission is stressed. The significance and complexity of this intertwined perspectives arediscussed.

    Context-rich vs. context-stripped approach to NOS teaching: teachers’ reflections2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The inclusion of nature of science (NOS) in science education, has for a long time been regarded a crucial component in the teaching for scientific literacy. Much has been written about teachers’ views of NOS and how NOS is taught in the science classroom, but less is known about the teachers’ views of the teaching of NOS. To be able to better understand how NOS becomes (or does not become) a part of science education, teachers’ views of the teaching of NOS needs to be investigated. Therefore, in this project, we aim to shed light on teachers’ ways of coping with two different approaches to NOS teaching – contextualized and decontextualized. We explore how the teaching of NOS is planned for, and communicated in the science classroom, as well as what difficulties and gains the teachers experience with the different approaches. The participants are Swedish in-service science teachers (n=6) in grades 3-9. During the project the teachers meet in focus groups, guided by a researcher, and discuss NOS and the teaching of NOS. Sources of data are audio recorded focus-group discussions and classroom observations. The results indicate that both approaches have benefits. A larger amount and more complex NOS aspects are addressed in the context-rich approach. However, the teachers in this study find the decontextualized task easier to fit within the traditional science-teaching frame.

    From black and white to shades of grey: a longitudinal study of teachers’ perspectives on teaching sociocultural and subjective aspects of science2017Inngår i: Science and Education, ISSN 1573-1901, Vol. 26, nr 5, 483-511 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Traditional school science has been described as focused on indisputable facts where scientific processes and factors affecting these processes become obscured or left undiscussed. In this article, we report on teachers’ perspectives on the teaching of sociocultural and subjective aspects of the nature of science (NOS) as a way to accomplish a more nuanced science teaching in Swedish compulsory school. The teachers (N = 6) took part in a longitudinal study on NOS and NOS teaching that spanned 3 years. The data consists of recorded and transcribed focus group discussions from all 3 years. In the analysis, the transcripts were searched for teachers’ suggestions of issues, relevant for teaching in compulsory school, as well as opportunities and challenges connected to the teaching of these issues. The results of the analysis show that (a) the number of suggested issues increased over the years, (b) teachers’ ways of contextualizing the issues changed from general and unprecise to more tightly connected to socio-scientific or scientific contexts, and (c) the number of both opportunities and challenges related to NOS teaching increased over the years. The most evident changes occurred from the beginning of year 2 when the focus group discussions became more closely directed towards concrete teaching activities. Tensions between the opportunities and challenges are discussed as well as how these can be met, and made use of, in science teacher education.

    Socio-cultural aspects of science in the science classroom: teachers' perspectives2016Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Students' interest in science is declining. Science teaching often have science as facts as its main focus. In such science teaching there is often little room for socio-cultural aspects of science. It has, however, been shown that students could gain more interest in science if broader perspectives are included. Making socio-cultural aspects a topic in the science classroom is considered hard. In order to gain more knowledge about issues related to the implementation of socio-cultural aspects in the science classroom we have focused on teachers' perspectives. In this presentation we will provide results from a three-year research-project. It is a case study of six teachers, teaching science in grades 1-9. During the project the teachers met in focus groups four times a year and discussed different aspects of science. During the focus-group meetings they also planned and reflected on classroom activities with a focus on socio-cultural issues, which they implemented between meetings. Questionnaires, interviews and classroom observations where used in addition to the data collected from the focus groups. The results provide information on teachers' perspectives on appropriate approaches and activities for different years, as well as information about teachers' perspectives on both challenges and benefits from implementing socio-cultural aspects.

    Teachers discussing, planning and implementing NOS-aspects in their teaching2014Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The inclusion of "nature of science" (NOS) in science education has for a long time been regarded as a crucial component in the teaching for scientific literacy. The aim of this study is to investigate how in-service science teachers plan, implement, and afterwards reflect on a NOS teaching session. The participants in the study are Swedish in-service science teachers (n=4) in grades 4-9. Sources of data are teacher-group discussions (before and after the NOS-session), classroom observations, and teachers’ reflective notes. The analytical framework used in this study is developed with a point of departure in the NOS tenets described by Lederman (2007). The preliminary results indicate that although the teachers in different ways explicitly address many different aspects of NOS during the teaching sessions, and they believe that their students are interested in the provided tasks, the teachers themselves are having a hard time coping with the clash between the implemented NOS-session and more traditional views of science teaching.

    Teachers’ ways of talking about nature of science and its teaching2015Inngår i: Science & Education, ISSN 0926-7220, E-ISSN 1573-1901, Vol. 24, nr 9, 1141-1172 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Nature of science (NOS) has for a long time been regarded as a key component in science teaching. Much research has focused on students’ and teachers’ views of NOS, while less attention has been paid to teachers’ perspectives on NOS teaching. This article focuses on in-service science teachers’ ways of talking about NOS and NOS teaching, e.g. what they talk about as possible and valuable to address in the science classroom, in Swedish compulsory school. These teachers (N = 12) are, according to the national curriculum, expected to teach NOS, but have no specific NOS training. The analytical framework described in this article consists of five themes that include multiple perspectives on NOS. The results show that teachers have less to say when they talk about NOS teaching than when they talk about NOS in general. This difference is most obvious for issues related to different sociocultural aspects of science. Difficulties in — and advantages of — NOS teaching, as put forth by the teachers, are discussed in relation to traditional science teaching, and in relation to teachers’ perspectives on for which students science teaching will be perceived as meaningful and comprehensible. The results add to understanding teachers’ reasoning when confronted with the idea that NOS should be part of science teaching. This in turn provides useful information that can support the development of NOS courses for teachers.

    Abstract [sv]

    Den här studien är en del i ett större forskningsprojekt som startade våren 1997 då eleverna var 6-7 år. Jag har genomfört riktade undervisningsinslag som byggt på vardagsfenomen kring vatten och dess fasändringar. Eleverna har intervjuats före och efter vår undervisning. Elevernas förklaringar har analyserats tillsammans med filmade undervisningstillfällen mot bakgrund av den teoretiska ramen för att söka få en helhetsbild av varje elev och följa hur de utvecklar sina uppfattningar. Det jag ser är att eleverna får en bättre förståelse av begreppen avdunstning och kondensation.
