2014 (English)In: Science education research and Education for sustainable development: a collection of invited papers inspired by the 22nd Symposium on Chemistry and Science Education held at the University of Bremen, 19-21 June 2014. / [ed] Ingo Eilks, Silvija Markic & Bernd Ralle, Aachen: Shaker Verlag, 2014, 157-168 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this science and technology dominated society, the complex interrelationship of science, technology, environment and society has been noticed during the past 30 years. In line with this phenomenon, socioscientific issues (SSI) are not only emerging in the research field of science/environmental education, but also discussed in our everyday multimedia world. This year is the last year of the UN Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) decade (year 2005 to 2014), it is time to reflect upon what we have done and how we ought to continue in the next step. Therefore, in this presentation, firstly, we will address the important relationship of scientific literacy (SL), ESD, SSI and science media literacy (SML) in the modern society. Secondly, based on the aforementioned important relationship of SML, ESD and SSI, a model of SSI pedagogic discourse is presented to contribute to school education. The implications to ESD, media, science and citizen education are delineated.
