Integrated Green Conceptions into Applied Science Course Assessing Taiwan Students’ Learning Attitude and Correlation Analysis
Interdisciplinary Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2022, 18(1), e2264, https://doi.org/10.21601/ijese/11424
ABSTRACT: This research focused on constructing students’ new visions of integrated green concepts into science course. There were 54 students to conduct a questionnaire survey approach and examine their cognitive learning attitude and correlation analysis by integrating innovative animations of carbon footprint. The statistical analysis of students’ learning performance would indicate in the collected data. The results pointed out the following four trends: (1) Development of learning attitude questionnaire had superior reliability of Cronbach α, .97 and correlation of γ > .70 for each dependent variable; (2) The finding of quantitative research indicated that students exhibited positive learning attitude (M=3.711, SD=.767) after the integrated serial learning; (3) One-way ANOVA revealed that students represented a large effect size (410≦ f ≦.776) for their disposition of the experimental curriculum; (4) According to the results of students’ interview for integrating teaching showed positive learning feedback which students could thoroughly understand the positive consumption concept of carbon emissions. For the limitation of the sample in this research, further research will be necessary for promoting students’ deep and longitude learning research in the future.

Active Learning Methodologies in a Solar Power, Middle-Grade Curriculum for Palestinian Schools
Interdisciplinary Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2020, 16(2), e2211, https://doi.org/10.29333/ijese/7814
ABSTRACT: Palestine has great potential for solar energy use because of its status as an occupied territory with accompanying energy challenges and the area’s ample amounts of sunshine. Solar energy education and the incorporation of active-learning methods can promote learning about key scientific concepts, environmental benefits, and uses of solar energy, while developing problem-solving and inquiry abilities. A grades six to nine curriculum on solar energy for Palestinian schools is described, which uses structured inquiry, problem-based learning, and multimedia animated videos. The format for the activities is exploration occurs first followed by concept formation using the videos and discussions. A three-day teacher workshop led participants through the experiences. A subsequent implementation in schools was observed. Participants had overall positive attitudes toward the curriculum, the active-student learning methods, their abilities to implement, and the positive effects the program would have on student learning.
