Metacognition in Chemical Education: Question Posing in the Case-Based Computerized Learning Environment
Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 37, No. 5 (September 2009) pp. 403–436
Posing questions about an article might improve one's knowledge--a cognitive function, or monitor one's thought processes--a metacognitive function. This study focuses on guided question posing while using a metacognitive strategy by 12th grade...
Journal of Science Teacher Education Vol. 20, No. 5 (October 2009) pp. 459–474
Testing students on higher order thinking skills may reinforce these skills among them. To research this assertion, we developed a graduate course for inservice science teachers in a framework of a "Journal Club"--a hybrid course which combines face-...
Enhancing Undergraduate Students' Chemistry Understanding through Project-Based Learning in an IT Environment
Science Education Vol. 89, No. 1 (January 2005) pp. 117–139
Project-based learning (PBL), which is increasingly supported by information technologies (IT), contributes to fostering student-directed scientific inquiry of problems in a real-world setting. This study investigated the integration of PBL in an IT ...
How Does Technology-Enabled Active Learning Affect Undergraduate Students' Understanding of Electromagnetism Concepts?
Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 14, No. 2 (2005) pp. 243–279
Educational technology supports meaningful learning and enables the presentation of spatial and dynamic images, which portray relationships among complex concepts. The Technology-Enabled Active Learning (TEAL) Project at the Massachusetts Institute...
Assessing High School Chemistry Students' Modeling Sub-Skills in a Computerized Molecular Modeling Learning Environment
Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 40, No. 1 (January 2012) pp. 69–91
Much knowledge in chemistry exists at a molecular level, inaccessible to direct perception. Chemistry instruction should therefore include multiple visual representations, such as molecular models and symbols. This study describes the implementation ...
Question Posing, Inquiry, and Modeling Skills of Chemistry Students in the Case-Based Computerized Laboratory Environment
International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education Vol. 7, No. 3 (June 2009) pp. 597–625
A new learning unit in chemistry, "Case-based Computerized Laboratories" (CCL) and Computerized Molecular Modeling" (CMM) was developed at the Technion. The CCL and CMM curriculum integrates computerized desktop experiments and molecular modeling...
A Three-Attribute Transfer Skills Framework--Part II: Applying and Assessing the Model in Science Education
Chemistry Education Research and Practice Vol. 16, No. 1 (2015)
In an era in which information is rapidly growing and changing, it is very important to teach with the goal of students' engagement in life-long learning in mind. This can partially be achieved by developing transferable thinking skills. In our ...

School Principals' Influence on Science Teachers' Technology Implementation: A Retrospective Analysis
International Journal of Leadership in Education Vol. 14, No. 2 (2011) pp. 229–245
This paper describes a longitudinal study, in which the interaction between junior high school principals and science teachers is characterized, and its influence on technology implementation is explored. Fourteen principals and 19 teachers who...
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2010 (Mar 29, 2010) pp. 412–419
In the last decade, distance learning has become an integral part of professional development. Unlike a traditional classroom, a virtual classroom is a teaching and learning environment located within a computer-mediated communication system....
Development and Implementation of Inquiry-Based and Computerized-Based Laboratories: Reforming High School Chemistry in Israel
Chemistry Education Research and Practice Vol. 11, No. 3 (2010) pp. 218–228
Reforms in science education in general and in chemistry education in particular have been introduced in many countries since the beginning of the 21st Century. Similarly, at this time in Israel both the content and pedagogy of the chemistry...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 21, No. 2 (April 2012) pp. 207–225
For an educational reform to succeed, teachers need to adjust their perceptions to the reform's new curricula and strategies and cope with new content, as well as new teaching and assessment strategies. Developing students' scientific literacy...
Lifelong Learning at the Technion: Graduate Students' Perceptions of and Experiences in Distance Learning
Interdisciplinary Journal of E-Learning and Learning Objects Vol. 8 (2012) pp. 115–135
This study examined the development of two Distance Learning (DL) courses and their effect on students' perceptions and learning experiences. Our study included about 260 science and engineering graduate students. Among them, 105 students were...
How Can Hybrid Courses Designed with Socio-Constructivist Design-Principles Promote Learning in Higher Education?
World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education 2007 (Oct 15, 2007) pp. 6071–6078
This research explores the learning that took place in three hybrid university-level courses in education, which were designed according to three main design-principles: (a)engage learners in peer instruction, (b)involve learners in assessment...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 20, No. 2 (April 2011) pp. 156–160
Unlike students in other engineering disciplines, undergraduates in biological engineering typically have limited opportunity to develop design competencies, and even fewer chances to implement their designed projects. The international Genetically...
How Much Have They Retained? Making Unseen Concepts Seen in a Freshman Electromagnetism Course at MIT
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 16, No. 4 (August 2007) pp. 299–323
The introductory freshmen electromagnetism course at MIT has been taught since 2000 using a studio physics format entitled TEAL--Technology Enabled Active Learning. TEAL has created a collaborative, hands-on environment where students carry out...
