Model, Modelling and Modelling Competence in Science Education

Xue, S. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


Scientists usually create models to investigate and explain the natural world. Because of the limitations of models, modelling could be used as a means for acquiring a scientific understanding of science through model development processes. According to synthesize the literature of model and modelling in science education, a character can be found that modelling embodies to a certain degree corresponding models. Regarding this, the demand for their integration into school science curricula has led researchers to develop competences and effective assessment instruments to evaluate students’ modelling competencies. To better inform science education, I embarked upon a research synthesis of relevant articles within modelling competence in science education. Three main points in the area of science education will be introduced in this talk: (1) what is the model; (2) what is the modelling; (3) what is the framework of modelling competence?
