Several studies have revealed that most students not majoring in science at the Faculty of Elementary Education are not confident to teach science at elementary school. We conducted a questionnaire survey to 1815 such students at 15 universities in Japan. The purpose of this survey was to investigate what they expect from university and what would be the most effective education in order to improve their confidence. The survey revealed that (1) the students only have confidence in teaching biology, but (2) not other scientific subjects covered at elementary school, and (3) they are especially reluctant to teach physics and chemistry. These results indicate that a comprehensive curriculum at university covering all science subjects taught at elementary school is needed to improve their confidence.

In science education research so far, a kind of dichotomy between science experts and the lay public has often been popularly presupposed, and little attention has been paid to those in between, who continue to engage in scientific practices after finishing their schooling as non-professional scientists. They can be called ‘amateur scientists’, and are the target of this study. The purpose of this study is to explore possible or probable factors (internal motivation and socio-cultural contexts) by which amateur scientists can continue to commit themselves to their scientific practices, and generate a hypothetical model of these factors and their interrelationships. In order to tackle this issue, investigations were made to identify the motivations of amateur scientists and the socio-cultural factors around them through a semi-structured interview (using the Modified-Grounded Theory Approach). A hypothetical model was then generated, explaining the reasons why these amateur scientists could continue to devote themselves to their favorite scientific practices.

The purpose of this research is to determine how stereotypical views of the sciences and humanities are formed among university students. Thirty undergraduate or graduated students were semi-structurally interviewed, and the collected data were analyzed by the modified grounded-theory approach (M-GTA). The analysis revealed that, prior to the formation of stereotypical views, students first recognized their aptitudes for one of two categories: sciences or humanities. Once they established their aptitudes, they started to recognize those who were in the opposite category. When they encountered “ideal figures” in such categories, they unconsciously extracted some features and regarded them as common features shared among those in such categories. These common characteristics were further interpreted based on their own views and beliefs, which essentially led to forming stereotypical views. This study suggests that the stereotypical views of the sciences and humanities are not universal; they are gradually formed in parallel with students’ constant struggle to navigate themselves during countless decisions for academic and career planning.

It is said that biological education in today's high school has many problems. The purpose of this paper is to explain the existence of those problems, and to search for possible clues for solving them. For the purpose of achieving this goal, an analysis was made of the historical transition of biological education since the Second World War. The materials that were analyzed include sets of the course of study and textbooks used in each period. The characteristics of a particular course of study in each period were extracted through this analysis. The following characteristics of biological education in Japan became clear from the analysis : 1. The basic structure of high school biological education contents has not changed since the curriculum movement of science education ; 2. The basic concepts which have been used in biological education have been retained ; 3. There was some old-fashioned content as a result of the introduction of too little new content of biology in recent years ; and 4. A serious problem exists in the biological education content structure due to the elimination of content as a result of revisions made in the courses of study.

Of recent, cross-curricular education has achieved greater importance. The present research aimed to obtain the psychometric properties of the nationwide achievement assessments on science, reading and mathematic literacy by analyzing the response data provided by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in Japan. The data includes all of the sixth grade (1,066,295) students in Japan in the 2018 academic year. We randomly picked up 500,000 students from the data set. The results of a factor analysis showed that the science assessment test might be assessing a combination of reading skills, mathematics skills and scientific skills, although the reading and mathematics test assessed each skill specifically. To obtain a more detailed picture, we compared the correct answer rates among 4 groups of students; the higher-scientific-higher-reading skills group, the higher-scientific-lower-reading skills group, the lower-scientific-higher-reading skills group and the lower-scientific-lower-reading skills group. The results suggested that all questions in the science assessment tests required reading skills. Moreover, in some questions, reading skills could complement scientific skills to answer them. These results suggest that we should be careful when dealing with the science assessment test; instead of just using the answer rate as the index of scientific skills, it would be better to use a weighted factor score in order to find out more about students’ achievements by assessing three skills independently.

The division of science and humanities sometimes generates conflicts in our community. To identify a possible gap between the two areas, I conducted research to elucidate how university students define science and humanities. Forty-two undergraduate/graduate students were administered a semi-structured interview, and the collected data were analyzed by qualitative data analysis software. The analysis discovered 7 distinct categories that divided science and humanities: “target of interest”, “skill”, “nature of knowledge production”, “direction of knowledge production”, “process of thinking”, “starting point of thinking”, and “end point of thinking.” “Process of thinking” was the most popular category; however, considerable diversity existed among students’ views. These categorizations also suggested their non-negligible association with ontologies, epistemologies, and methodologies adopted in academic disciplines. Further analysis revealed that science was associated with positivism, monism, empiricism, and rationalism, whereas the humanities were linked to interpretivism and pluralism.

本研究では、大学生を対象とした説明的文章の読解方略の現状を調査するとともに、先行研究をもとにその現状を改善するための読解手法を提案する。まず、大学生を対象に読解学習の実態調査を行い、説明的文章読解において文章全体の構造を把握する作業(=構造注目方略)が不十分であるという知見を得た。この結果を踏まえ、文章全体の構造に注目させるための手法として「タイトル生成法」を提案した。大学生対象に実践したところ、記憶レベルでの理解度には有意傾向の差が見られたものの、状況モデルレベルでの理解度では差が見られなかった。今後、実践の具体的方法を見直し、改善を施した上で再度実践を行う予定である。

Despite its advanced level of scientific research, Japan suffers from a low level of adult scientific literacy compared to many other developed countries. The current situation certainly necessitates a nationwide, robust solution. However, to implement any countermeasures, it is essential to first answer one of the fundamental questions: Does current school education guarantee the acquisition and maintenance of scientific literacy? To provide an answer, the present study examined high school textbooks from both Japan and Canada. Canada was chosen as a counterpart, since Canadian adults reportedly possess outstanding levels of scientific literacy. In this comparative analysis, questions from all of the biology textbooks were examined to reveal the directed level of cognitive processes, key factors considered to play essential roles for becoming scientifically literate. Categorization based on Bloom’s Taxonomy clearly demonstrated that Japanese high school textbooks were not equipped with questions that foster higher cognitive processes, contrary to the Canadian textbooks. Overall, the government-approved textbooks currently used throughout Japan appear to be insufficient for guaranteeing the acquisition and maintenance of scientific literacy.

A Japanese boom of science communication beginning in 2005 shares some characteristics with advanced countries. This paper explores the background of a sudden boom of science communication in Japan into the struggle, common to advanced countries, for redefining the roll of technoscience in society. Firstly, it is shown that there are two kinds of motivations which triggered the boom of science communication. The first one is an erosion of public trust in experts of technoscience in the 90s. The second one is the changing role of technoscience from a symbol of national prestige to a tool of economic growth. Then, the characteristics and challenges for Japanese science communication activities are discussed.

The purpose of this study is to reveal how alien species are dealt with in textbooks about living environment studies, science, and biology from elementary to high school. From an analysis of students’ responses in lessons about alien species, possibilities and points to be noted for executing science lessons about biodiversity in elementary school were also examined. As a result, the following three points were identified.(1) The textbooks checked in this study have a total of 126 kinds of alien species, of which 10 are alien invasive species, and 23 are careful invasive species.(2) The textbooks have some description of how to cope with the problem of invasive species for most of alien invasive species; they also and have descriptons suggesting that their multiplication and release are encouraged, wheras there is little description about careful invasive species. (3)There are lessons that we had suggested to the students for proper understanding of alien species, indicating that lessons that encourage understanding of alien species in elementary school are possible. We have to examine opportunities and contents for doing so.

現在インターネット上で展開している「疑似科学とされるものの科学性評定サイト」における活動内容を紹介し,科学リテラシー向上に向けた科学教育の重要性を主張する.本稿では特に,蔓延する疑似科学にまつわる諸問題に対応するための,教育成果の「社会的な活用」という側面に焦点を当てた.これまでに収集した知見から,疑似科学に関連する問題の多くは,社会的な人間関係と深く関わっていることが推定できる.そのため,単なる科学的知識の蓄積だけでない実践的な問題解決能力も,これからの教育成果には求められるだろう.こうした社会状況において,科学教育の実践としての「疑似科学」はよい教材として機能することが期待でき,本稿を通してその意義を検討したいと思う.

小学校教員養成課程の第2学年の学生を対象にした調査の結果、殆ど全ての学生が「数学が嫌いである」「公式を暗記して当てはめればよい」「数学は閉じた学問である」等、算数・数学を指導するには適切とは言いがたい数学観を持っている。また、このような数学観を持つようになったのは、中学校時代からであること、その原因とて、中学校・高等学校での数学活動が与えられた問題を解くこと、すなわち、狭義の問題解決を中心にしてきたことが考えられることが明らかになった。そこで、教科専門科目「算数」の授業を、「数学における創造活動を体験させることにより、より望ましい数学観を持たせることができる」という仮説のもとに実践した。その結果、僅かではあるが、「数学に対する圧迫感・不安感」が軽減するという結果が得られた。

In recent years, the practice of science communication has disseminated scientific knowledge and fostered citizens’ trust and interest in science through dialogue on science-related emotions and values. In this study, we initiated science communication during a Japanese tea ceremony in a traditional café space, throughout which we engaged in dialogue with citizens who did not expect to experience science communication at the event. We analysed the dialogues of eight groups. There was some tendency for both citizens and scientists to initiate conversations in the café space, and this bilateral dialogue was promoted by the understanding of the characteristic of this science café. These results indicate that the design of spaces and the explanation about communication may effectively stimulate dialogue with citizens.

This manuscript aims to introduce a discipline called the learning sciences to readers of this journal. Naomi Miyake spent years in the graduate program at UC San Diego in 1980s, was involved in the emergence of cognitive science and has expanded her basic research toward classroom practices. Jun Oshima spent years in 1990s as a graduate student at the University of Toronto to work on how computers can support students’ knowledge building in the classroom and has continued lesson studies in Japan. The two researchers had three meetings to talk about their research field. Their conversation was structured as a story line by Hiroyuki Masukawa. First, it starts with Miyake’s talk about how the cognitive science emerged and came to be related to the learning sciences. Second, Oshima describes his experience to be in the vortex of the emergence of the learning sciences and research projects in the 90s. Third, the talk continues to discuss more deeply a disciplinary issue of how we treat human learning in the learning sciences. Finally, we wrap up our talk by summarizing the future of this discipline and how we will approach collaboration with practitioners and other stakeholders in education.
