EDUC 1370U – P/J Science & Technology Methods I


This course provides prospective elementary teachers with an opportunity to explore key issues in science and technology teaching and learning. Emphasizing the “unpacked” science and technology knowledge required for teaching, course participants will explore topics such as: constructivist-based teaching approaches; uses of technology for enriched learning; communication, assessment and evaluation; multiple representations and the interconnectedness of curricular expectations; how aesthetic and affective experiences can be used to benefit learning collaboration, and community. Course participants will explore, analyse and develop concrete examples of inquiry-style learning with an emphasis on scientific reasoning. Through readings, classroom activities and discussions, students will develop knowledge and skills in science, while exploring their personal values and beliefs about education in this discipline, with an eye toward creating positive learning environments for their future students.
