    When Modern Physics Meets Nature of Science: The Representation of Nature of Science in General Relativity in New Korean Physics Textbooks.Wonyong Park, Seungran Yang & Jinwoong Song - 2019 - Science & Education 28 (9-10):1055-1083.
    The social reaction to the recent detection of the Higgs boson and gravitational waves provided evidence that public interest in modern physics has reached a high point. Although these modern physics topics are being introduced into the upper secondary physics curricula in a growing number of countries, their potential for teaching various aspects of scientific practice have yet to be explored. This article responds to this call by providing an analysis of new South Korean high school physics textbooks’ representations of (...)

    Goethe’s Conception of “Experiment as Mediator” and Implications for Practical Work in School Science.Wonyong Park & Jinwoong Song - 2018 - Science & Education 27 (1-2):39-61.
    There has been growing criticism over the aims, methods, and contents of practical work in school science, particularly concerning their tendency to oversimplify the scientific practice with focus on the hypothesis-testing function of experiments. In this article, we offer a reading of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s scientific writings—particularly his works on color as an exquisite articulation of his ideas about experimentation—through the lens of practical school science. While avoiding the hasty conclusions made from isolated experiments and observations, Goethe sought in (...)

    Experimental Science: Joseph Priestley’s Influence in the Infrastructure of the Seventeenth-Century Science Education.Sally Baricaua Gutierez, Jinwoong Song & Heui-Baik Kim - 2018 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 51 (6):599-607.
    This paper discusses the emergence of science education in the seventeenth century with the influences of Joseph Priestley on the Dissenting Academies. Primarily, this paper analyses Priestley’s ideas from some of his letters to scientists during his time and his ideas from his books Miscellaneous Observations Relating to Education and the Essay on a Course of Liberal Education for Civil and Active Life. As an expository essay, analysis shows that the inclusion of experimental science education dates back from the Dissenting (...)
