Technology and Best Practices in Science Learning - Using the POE Model

  1. 1. P O E Predict - Observe -Explain
  2. 2. Learning Science <ul><li>Scientific Method </li></ul><ul><li>Learning Cycle </li></ul><ul><li>5 E’s </li></ul><ul><li>Constructivism </li></ul><ul><li>Discovery Learning </li></ul>
  3. 3. Scientific Method <ul><li>Define/Refine Problem </li></ul><ul><li>Hypothesis (Predict) </li></ul><ul><li>Experiment (Observe) </li></ul><ul><li>Analysis (Explain) </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusion (Generalize) </li></ul>
  4. 4. The 5 E’s <ul><li>Engage </li></ul><ul><li>Explore </li></ul><ul><li>Explain </li></ul><ul><li>Extend/Elaborate </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluate </li></ul><ul><li>A simple 5 E’s table </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;5 E's&quot; instructional model developed by the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) [Bybee, R. W. (Ed.). 1966] </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Learning Cycle Anthony W. Lorsbach , Illinois State University
  6. 6. Constructivism <ul><li>At its simplest: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning takes place through experience </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning takes place in a social environment </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Constructivism <ul><li>Constructivism does not claim to have made earth-shaking inventions in the area of education; it merely claims to provide a solid conceptual basis for some of the things that, until now, inspired teachers had to do without theoretical foundation. </li></ul><ul><li>Ernst von Glasersfeld [1995]. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Constructivism <ul><li>..mathematics and science are viewed as systems with models that describe how the world might be rather than how it is. These models derive their validity not from their accuracy in describing the world, but from the accuracy of any predictions which might be based on them (Hanley, 1994, p.4). </li></ul>
  9. 9. Pre/Misconceptions <ul><li>People will construct a set of concepts in order to make sense of what they observe. </li></ul><ul><li>Examples: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A Private Universe </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> in Physics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>in Teaching/Textbooks </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. So, Our Job is To: <ul><li>Identify student pre/misconceptions </li></ul><ul><li>Provide environment/experience </li></ul><ul><li>Facilitate cognitive adjustments </li></ul><ul><li>Guide reflection/evaluation </li></ul>
  11. 11. P O E <ul><li>Predict </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(explain) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Observe </li></ul><ul><li>Explain </li></ul><ul><li>A POE Primer </li></ul>
  12. 12. Strengths <ul><li>Helps to identify students’ prior knowledge/experience </li></ul><ul><li>Leads to engagement </li></ul><ul><li>Exploration is a vital phase </li></ul><ul><li>Provides for reflection </li></ul><ul><li>Easy assessment </li></ul>
  13. 13. Using Technology <ul><li>Some research </li></ul><ul><li>Learning Designs - Australia </li></ul><ul><li>Dr Matthew Kearney </li></ul><ul><li>The POE eshell - examples </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Car Launch </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hammer and Feather </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Newer, up-to-date library </li></ul>
  14. 14. High Points of POE eShell <ul><li>Simple to use </li></ul><ul><li>Discussion is a major part </li></ul><ul><li>Commitment makes a difference </li></ul><ul><li>Explanation should get richer with practice </li></ul><ul><li>Easy to assess </li></ul>
  15. 15. Low Points <ul><li>Need HTML editor to compose new lessons </li></ul><ul><li>Kinda clunky on web </li></ul><ul><li>Limited resources available for insertion </li></ul>
  16. 16. What Next? <ul><li>Learn to use HTML editor? </li></ul><ul><li>Jeff Mao (MLTI) tweaking a Filemaker Pro runtime version </li></ul><ul><li>Contribute to growing library </li></ul>
