Students in our chemistry classes often generate shallow responses to our questions and problems. They fail to recognize relevant cues in making judgments and decisions about the properties of chemical substances and processes, and make hasty generalizations that frequently lead them astray. Results from research in the psychology of decision making can help us better understand how students approach chemistry tasks under conditions of limited knowledge, time, or motivation. In this contribution...

The purpose of this research was to design and evaluate the effectiveness of a constructivist-based inservice professional development model for schools as they are becoming more responsible for modifying the curriculum and providing teachers inservice training. The sample included 73 K–3 teachers from a rural school district involved in integrating the use of computers into an already existing reading program, as opposed to introducing a new curriculum. The study focused on three variables: ski...

Although knowledge of biology is important for the survival of humans, performance in the subject, both in pre-Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (pre-KCSE) assessment and national examinations in Vihiga county has always been below average. Several interventions have been put in place to rectify the situation but in vain. However, the effect of the general computer use has not been investigated. This study investigated the effect of the general computer use on secondary school students’ p...
There are particular distinct changes that students are supposed to portray as a result of science instruction. These changes can be identified in the development of the students as they progress with learning. The changes include among others: ability to develop investigative skills, to reason scientifically, learn about the complexity of the world and be informed citizens. The study aimed at finding out the effects of teaching and learning experiences of teachers and students on science educat...

This study investigated the effects of traditional instruction, teacher-centered computer assisted instruction (CAI) and student-centered computer assisted instruction on secondary school students’ achievement in Physical Science. A total of 120 tenth-grade secondary school students participated in this randomized pretest-posttest control group experimental study. These students were randomly divided into three groups, namely, control group (n = 40), Teacher-centered CAI experimental group (n = ...

Mauritius is among the few African countries where the interactive whiteboard has been implemented in all primary schools. The interactive whiteboard is an important tool in the classroom as it changes the mode of instruction. Many researches have been carried out in many countries to investigate the effectiveness of the interactive whiteboard. This research is based on a feasibility study to determine teachers’ and learners’ perceptions of the potential benefits and drawbacks of using interacti...
