CogSciSci editors and contributors Dom Shibli and Adam Robbins have recently written articles for Oxford University Press about applying cognitive science to science education in advance of the release of a new range of cognitive science-informed revision guides.
Dom’s article introduces some key ideas behind CogSciSci and makes a brief foray into discussing how we avoid cognitive science becoming a lethal mutation and just another “fad.”
Adam’s article looks at how SLOP isn’t just an extended worksheet. It’s “the best CPD” he’s ever had and is a one-stop-shop for sequencing, worked examples, guided practice and independent practice. In short: SLOP booklets are the ultimate tool for the evidence-informed science teacher.
The OUP’s science education branch have been extremely supportive of CogSciSci and you can learn more about their revision project here.
