High quality drawings and carefully chosen photographs are included in all books. Safety warnings ensure teachers and students undertake the activities with care and confidence, while tests at the end of each book help students to check understanding and develop the skills required for assessment. The series provides: - interesting and up-to-date scientific information, with links to technology and the environment, and examples taken from across the Caribbean region - an integrated approach makes the text easy to follow.
Modern information and communication technologies, together with a cultural upheaval within the research community, have profoundly changed research in nearly every aspect. Ranging from sharing and discussing ideas in social networks for scientists to new collaborative environments and novel publication formats, knowledge creation and dissemination as we know it is experiencing a vigorous shift towards increased transparency, collaboration and accessibility. Many assume that research workflows will change more in the next 20 years than they have in the last 200. This book provides researchers, decision makers, and other scientific stakeholders with a snapshot of the basics, the tools, and the underlying visions that drive the current scientific (r)evolution, often called ‘Open Science.’
Devised to help teachers of primary science in schools. This title offers a two-year age band structure, correlation to the QCA Scheme of Work, and recommended teaching times. The Overview page is to introduce the themes in the unit. Review page is meant to assess learning. The Teacher Resource Books contain structured lesson plans.
Science communication, as a multidisciplinary field, has developed remarkably in recent years. It is now a distinct and exceedingly dynamic science that melds theoretical approaches with practical experience. Formerly well-established theoretical models now seem out of step with the social reality of the sciences, and the previously clear-cut delineations and interacting domains between cultural fields have blurred. Communicating Science in Social Contexts examines that shift, which itself depicts a profound recomposition of knowledge fields, activities and dissemination practices, and the value accorded to science and technology. Communicating Science in Social Contexts is the product of long-term effort that would not have been possible without the research and expertise of the Public Communication of Science and Technology (PCST) Network and the editors. For nearly 20 years, this informal, international network has been organizing events and forums for discussion of the public communication of science.
Strategies for Successful Science Teaching is an exciting new text for science education classes, and a supplement for teachers of science (especially new teachers). It is aimed at K-8 teachers, but can also help 9-12 teachers. For administrators and others, the book will quickly become a standard reference on current science education strategies. The book is a must-have for science educators. A comprehensive resource, it never loses sight of the wonder of science and the pleasure of teaching it.
Victorian Science in Context captures the essence of this fascination, charting the many ways in which science influenced and was influenced by the larger Victorian culture. Leading scholars in history, literature, and the history of science explore questions such as, What did science mean to the Victorians? For whom was Victorian science written? What ideological messages did it convey?
