Groups in Cyprus, Israel, Germany, The Netherlands, Greece, England and Sweden have developed, implemented and evaluated teaching sequences using the web-based platform STOCHASMOS in a EU-project – www.coreflect.org. The interactive web-based inquiry materials support collaborative and reflective work. The sequences have been tested as pilot projects and revised for a second local implementation. They will be culturally adopted for a third enactment in a partner country.
The Swedish learning environment is Astrobiology for secondary students (9th grade, 16 years). Scientific, social, economical and ethical perspectives are taken on the driving question: Should we look for, and try to contact, extraterrestrial life?
Empirical data from the final enactment, including students’ worldviews and their use of scientific arguments, will be discussed at the conference. Preliminary results from the pilot show that students appreciate the teaching, and we see an increase in students’ motivation.
