(Springer Verlag (Germany), 2004-09)
    In South Africa, recent government plans to change the institutional landscape of higher education have resulted in mergers of colleges into universities or technikons. The research reported in this article focuses solely ...
  • De Villiers, J.J.R. (Rian); Monk, Martin (Taylor & Francis, 2005)
    In biology education, the study of structure has traditionally involved the use of dissection. Animal-rights campaigners have caused biology educators and learners to question the necessity of dissections. This study reviews ...
  • Rauscher, Willem Johannes; Cronje, Johannes Christoffel (Unisa Press, 2005)
    The Internet offers a new dimension to distance learning: there is no arguing against the advantages of online learning - it transcends time and space in offering convenient (anywhere, anytime, own pace, etc.) access to ...
  • Stoffels, Newton Trevor (Southern African Association for Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2005)
    Drawing on the notion of the 'didactical transposition' of curriculum texts, this paper takes a critical look at why one science teacher still persists with a traditional teacher-centred approach towards practical work. ...
  • Van Staden, Surette; Maree, David J.F. (South African Association of Family Ecology and Consumer Sciences, 2005)
    The aim of the study was to describe the thoughts and emotions of consumers with regard to both online shopping and traditional shopping. A homogenous sample of ten female respondents participated in this qualitative study ...
  • Maree, J.G. (Kobus); Scholtz, S.; Botha, H.J.; Van Putten, Sonja (Education Association of South Africa (EASA), 2005-05)
    Graphing software and graphics calculators are widely used in most of the world's larger economies to facilitate students' development of conceptual understanding of mathematical function analysis. This has proved to be ...
  • Onwu, Gilbert O.M.; Stoffels, Newton Trevor (Faculty of Education, University of Pretoria, 2005-09)
    Following the implementation of the new outcomes-based Curriculum 2005, teacher competence in teaching reform-based science in large classes is one of the challenges in the continuing reform of South Africa's education ...
  • De Villiers, J.J.R. (Rian); Sommerville, Jaqui E.M. (Education Association of South Africa (EASA), 2005-11)
    A sample of 242 prospective biology teachers at a South African university responded to a questionnaire on animal dissection in a science-related context. The students were required to answer questions relating to their ...
  • Gaigher, Estelle; Rogan, John M.; Braun, Max Willi Hermann (Southern African Association for Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2006)
    A quasi-experimental study was undertaken to extend first-world research on physics problem solving into disadvantaged South African classrooms. Sixteen urban high schools, involving 189 learners, participated in the study, ...
  • Maluleka, Khazamula; Wilkinson, Annette; Gumbo, Mishack (Education Association of South Africa, 2006-11)
    In this article it is argued that indigenous technology with its long history cannot be ignored and should be assigned a more prominent place in the Technology Learning Area (TLA) within Curriculum 2005/RNCS Grades R - 9. ...
  • Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann (Taylor & Francis, 2007-01-07)
    This paper, the first of a two-part article, follows the trail in history of the development of a graphical representation of the complex roots of a function. Root calculation and root representation are traced through ...
  • Mentz, Elsa; Goosen, Leila (Education Association of South Africa (EASA), 2007-05)
    We discuss teachers' perception of the use of group work in the Information Technology (IT) classroom. We describe the current situation regarding the implementation of group work in IT classrooms in South Africa as ...
