Synopsis

New Paradigms in Science Education is a collection of renowned journal and conference papers written by science educators in Singapore. It is the first book of its kind in the Singapore context that highlights three important areas of interest: teaching problem solving, creative teaching and primary science education. The uniqueness of the book lies in its farsighted views of how knowledge and skills in science education in general, and in chemical education in particular, can be acquired innovatively. The chapters in the book identify common learning difficulties, specific ways to disseminate information effectively and creatively, and potential areas of development in science education. Also included is a foreword by Professor Peter J. Fensham, an eminent researcher and scholar of science education. Science education researchers, teachers and learners will find this book both insightful and informative.
