  • Views of Trainee Science Teachers in Kuwait Regarding the NoS Dimensions
           and Their Conception of Creativity in Science Education

      Abstract: Science educators are often advised to pay attention to trainee teachers’ views on issues related to education, particularly the nature of science (NoS). Views on the NoS can be translated into pedagogical practices and then transferred to students; therefore, teachers should hold informed views about the NoS. This study sought to explore the views of trainee science teachers in Kuwait about the NoS and its aspects or dimensions. It also aimed to identify the possible connections among the NoS dimensions and teachers’ views on creativity in science. This multi-method study involved 152 trainee science teachers. The research instruments consisted of a questionnaire about teachers’ views of the nature of science (VNoS), a questionnaire about teachers’ views of creativity in science education, and semi-structured interviews. The findings revealed that trainee science teachers hold naïve and sometimes perplexing views of the NoS dimensions, and they are more likely to follow a traditional positivist worldview when they discuss the nature of scientific knowledge. Also, the findings revealed trainee teachers’ views of creativity in science education as well as significant correlations among six NoS dimensions and creativity. Detailed findings are discussed to draw conclusions and address possible suggestions for science educators and for the community of science education research.

  • Evaluation of the Secondary Students’ Attitudes Towards Studying and
           Learning Science and Mathematics, and Their Impact on Learning in the Two
           Schools in the Northern Finland

    • Authors: Päivi Tomperi
      Pages: 16 - 26
      Abstract: The objective of this study was to examine secondary students’ attitudes towards studying and learning science and mathematics, and how the attitude constructs were linked in students’ responses. As a result of the hierarchical cluster analysis, six classes were obtained. Based on Cronbach’s alpha values, two clusters were excluded from the final model leaving the classes which were named as motivation, the nature of the classroom environment, enjoyment, and achievement. In this classification attitudes of parents were related to motivation, attitudes of friends to enjoyment, perception of the teacher to the nature of the classroom environment, and anxiety and fear of failure to achievement. To determine factors affecting students’ prior learning in different disciplines of natural sciences, mathematics, and IT, stepwise multiple regression was carried out with self-estimated skill score as the dependent variable to discover which items were related to learning in the four classes of the model. The main predictor for achievement was item “physics is more difficult for me than for many of my classmates” (adjusted R2 = 29.6 %) and for motivation “my parents are proud of my achievements in science and math” (adjusted R2 = 19.9 %). One item showed gender difference with medium effect size.
