Description & Coverage
Description:

Digital age learners come to the science classroom equipped with a wide range of skills and a wealth of information at their fingertips. Although science and technology have enjoyed a symbiotic relationship, the ubiquity of information technologies requires teachers to modify instruction and experiences for K-12 science learners. Environmental and societal changes have impacted how and when students acquire and synthesize knowledge. These changes compel us to modify and adjust to improve the practice of teaching science to meet the unique needs of students who are growing up in a society dominated by connected digital devices, constant communication, and the ubiquity of information.

Theoretical and Practical Teaching Strategies for K-12 Science Education in the Digital Age disseminates theory-informed practices for science teachers that increase their instructional effectiveness in teaching digital age learners. It communicates how to increase science educators’ understandings of the needs of digital age learners, develops theoretical and practical teaching strategies that align with science content, and integrates technologies for learning with fidelity. Covering topics such as design-based inclusive science, project-based learning, and science instruction, this premier reference source is an excellent resource for administrators and science educators within K-12 education, pre-service teachers, teacher educators, librarians, researchers, and academicians.
