Abstract: This research addresses high school students' understandings of the nature of models, and their interaction with model-based software in three science domains, namely, biology, physics, and chemistry. Data from 736 high school students' understandings of models were collected using the Students' Understanding of Models in Science (SUMS) survey as part of a large-scale, longitudinal study in the context of technology-based curricular units in each of the three science domains. The results of ANOVA and regressio… Show more

“…To gain pedagogical and epistemological benefit from analogical models, or any other representations for that matter, students need to recognize the main purpose of adopting the particular representations and where there is a direct correspondence between the representation and the target concept and where the correspondence breaks down (Chittleborough, Treagust, Mamiala, & Mocerino, ; Gobert et al., ; Harrison & Treagust, ). Researchers also recommend that teachers need to help students recognize limitations of the representation for their metarepresentational skills (Glynn, ; Treagust, Harrison, & Venville, ).…”

“…Models and modelling play a central role not only in scientific enterprise but also in Science Education (Halloun, 2007;Justi and Gilbert, 2002;Oh and Oh, 2011), being the understanding of models an important issue of one's understanding of science (Gobert et al, 2011). Models are powerful tools that scientists use in developing scientific knowledge.…”

“…따라서 모델은 실제 세계에서 일어나는 현상에 대한 과학적인 설명 및 예측을 위한 기초를 제공해줌으로써 (Gilbert et al, 1998), 과학적 지식의 생산, 보 급, 수용에 필수적이라고 볼 수 있다 (Giere, 1988;Gilbert, 1991;Tomasi, 1988). 이와 같은 특성을 지닌 모델의 본성에 대한 이해는 과학의 본성(Nature of Science)에 대한 이해와 통합되는 부분으로 모 델은 개념적으로 설명될 수 있으며 (Gobert et al, 2011), 과학교육과 과학적 소양 교육에서 중요한 교수-학습 도구이자 수단이고 (Gilbert, 1991;Halloun, 2007), 과학 내용 지식을 학습할 때 효과적인 도구가 된다 (Chabalengula & Mumba, 2012).…”
