Lindsey Conner, Chris Astall

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

At a time when student interest in science needs boosting and when a new school curriculum mandates a focus on the nature of science, we report on changes in teachers’ understanding of the nature of science following intervention workshops and experience of the science learninghub website. The qualitative and quantitative methods for the research included questionnaires, interviews, observations and written evidence of planning junior science units of work to
include a range of multimedia resources. We make recommendations for future research projects associated with the use of the SLH and how these influence student learning.
