Abstract

This paper reports on learning experiences developed for pre-service teachers (PSTs), in a Masters Level science education subject. This work is informed by specific pedagogical literature in response to pervasive concerns in science education. One premise is that authentic real world experiences engage and empower science learners. PSTs undertake learning experiences configured to result in production of narratives. Learners curate images and videos, as data, of import to them, connected to meaningful bodies of science knowledge. PSTs can collaborate to develop stories, resulting in learning products that communicate educative science messages. These learning experiences further PSTs unders..
