Abstract

As society navigates complex socioscientific issues (SSI) in an increasingly digitalized world, science education faces evolving challenges and opportunities. This study aimed to conduct a literature review by systematically analyzing and synthesizing existing research and publications on SSI pedagogy and the digital age. The steps involved in this method include: identifying the research scope, searching and selecting relevant literature, analyzing and synthesizing relevant literature, identifying gaps and trends, and critical evaluation and interpretation. The study explores the intersection of SSI pedagogy and the digital age, shedding light on both emerging trends and uncharted frontiers. The review delves into the dynamic landscape of SSI education, emphasizing the integration of digital technologies as a means to engage students in authentic, real-world problem-solving. It examines the role of technology in enhancing SSI learning experiences, from virtual simulations to online collaborative platforms. Furthermore, the review critically evaluates the impact of digital tools on student decision-making, argumentation skills, and ethical reasoning in the context of socioscientific dilemmas. This review also addresses the challenges and opportunities of teaching SSI in online and blended learning environments, particularly in light of the global shift toward remote education. In summary, this review informs educators, and researchers, and underscores the pivotal role of digital technologies in preparing students to navigate the complex socioscientific challenges of the 21st century.

Dijital çağda sosyobilimsel konuların öğretimi: Ortaya çıkan eğilimler ve keşfedilmemiş sınırlar

Abstract

Toplum giderek dijitalleşen bir dünyada karmaşık sosyobilimsel konulara (SBK) yönelirken, fen eğitimi de değişen zorluklar ve fırsatlarla karşı karşıya kalmaktadır. Bu çalışma, SBK ve dijital çağ üzerine mevcut araştırma ve yayınları sistematik bir şekilde analiz ve sentez ederek bir literatür taraması yapmayı amaçlamıştır. Bu yöntemde yer alan adımlar şunlardır: araştırma kapsamının belirlenmesi, ilgili literatürün taranması ve seçilmesi, ilgili literatürün analizi ve sentezlenmesi, boşlukların ve eğilimlerin belirlenmesi ve eleştirel değerlendirme ve yorumlama. Bu literatür incelemesi hem yeni ortaya çıkan trendlere hem de keşfedilmemiş sınırlara ışık tutarak SBK pedagojisi ile dijital çağın kesişimini araştırmaktadır. İnceleme, öğrencileri otantik, gerçek dünya problemlerinin çözümüne dahil etmenin bir yolu olarak dijital teknolojilerin entegrasyonunu vurgulayarak SBK eğitiminin dinamik ortamını araştırmaktadır. Sanal simülasyonlardan çevrimiçi işbirlikçi platformlara kadar teknolojinin SBK öğrenme deneyimlerini geliştirmedeki rolünü incelemektedir. Ayrıca, inceleme, dijital araçların sosyobilimsel ikilemler bağlamında öğrencilerin karar verme, tartışma becerileri ve etik muhakeme üzerindeki etkisini eleştirel bir şekilde değerlendirmektedir. Bu derleme aynı zamanda, özellikle uzaktan eğitime doğru küresel değişim ışığında, çevrimiçi ve karma öğrenme ortamlarında SBK öğretiminin zorluklarını ve fırsatlarını da ele almaktadır. Özetle bu derleme, eğitimcileri ve araştırmacıları bilgilendirmekte ve dijital teknolojilerin öğrencileri 21. yüzyılın karmaşık sosyobilimsel zorluklarının üstesinden gelmeye hazırlamadaki öneminin altını çizmektedir.
