In many cases, traditional science education has been criticized for employing expository didactic approaches as well as focusing explicitly on teaching rote facts, without helping students to relate science to their own lives (e.g. Fensham, 2004; Holbrook, 2003). In an effort to address this problematic situation, a growing movement sees inquiry-based learning to be of paramount importance, since it has the potential to support students’ active engagement with scientific practices such as the investigation of important societal issues (Eurydice network, 2011; NRC, 2012). If one purpose of science education is to produce students, who can be actively engaged with science, then inquiry-based learning environments can provide an ideal venue for the accomplishment of this goal.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/10029||ISBN:||978-3-9816683-1-5|
