Title: mSciences: An Affinity Space for Science Teachers
Issue Date: 2017-09
Abstract: The project 'Multimedia in science teaching: five years of research and teaching in Portugal' was successful in featuring the national research on multimedia in science education and in providing the community with a simple reference tool - a repository of open access scientific texts. The current work aims to describe the theoretical background that may allow creating and sustainably developing an online community on science teaching. The community should be capable of appropriating and generating scientific peer review and validation processes, which would allow reflections on teaching practices in science areas using information and communication technologies (ICT) and improvements from a participatory science perspective. Through an action-research process, the current platform is being adjusted in the sense of implementing strategies able to attract and engage an interested public and progressively to create a community of peers. The project is particularly relevant with respect to the gap between academic production and pedagogical practice and the avenues that it opens for comparing affinity spaces across different locations and domains of interest. © 2017 by Academic Publishing House Researcher s.r.o.
