...science education is unique in that it is in a constant state of flux. As new scientific discoveries emerge the past foundations of knowledge must change to match this new information. Indeed, the history of science has been the history of paradigm changes, where a major discovery in science forces scientists, researchers, and ultimately teachers to reconsider their means of understanding the world. Some of the most prominent such ideas have assumed a seminal place in history. This essay considers how scientific ideas have changed over...

...science. Scientific education is viewed by many experts and scholars to involve social interactions among teachers of science and students. The scope of the cultural perspective of this social interaction involves giving substantial theoretical weight to its role: seeing it, as in the Vygotskyan tradition (Vygotsky, 1963; Leontiev, 1978; Cole, 1996), to be the most important necessity to learning. This implies that when we explore such cultural perspectives, we must try as much as possible to be skeptical and critical. The most basic belief here is that we do not know why we act as we do; we... ? Exploring Cultural Perspectives of Social Interactions among the Teachers of Science (scientists) and...
