Abstract

通過科學探究促進兒童對科學的理解,發展科學思維及探究能力,是科學教育中一重要議題。本文以近三屆「常識百搭」科學專題探究活動中獲傑出表現隊伍的書面報告和口頭匯報,從產生意念、提出問題、調查測試、資料處理及經驗總結五個角度分析學生進行探究的過程特點,提供科學思維發展的概貌。結果發現學生的問題意識較強,能清楚陳述目的,收集和整理資料,具歸納推理能力;在判定問題、公平比較與反思質疑等科學思維上則較薄弱。
Scientific Inquiry has been seen as an important goal of science education to facilitate scientific understanding and develop scientific thinking and scientific processes. This paper makes reference to written reports and oral presentations of the outstanding teams of the last three Primary Science Project Exhibitions based on five aspects: idea generation, asking of questions, investigation and testing, data collection and interpretation and the evaluation of experience. The study aims to provide a better general picture of children’s science thinking during the scientific inquiry process. Findings show that children had an inquiring mind and could raise appropriate questions, state aims of the inquiry clearly, collect and organize information well, and could reason and draw conclusions. However, children were relatively weaker in the areas of making sound judgment, fair comparisons and critical reflection. Copyright © 2006 香港中文大學香港教育研究所.
