There is a major mismatch between opportunity and action in most education systems today. This revolves around the meaning of "science education," a term that is often misappropriated in the current school practice, where rather than learning how to think scientifically, students are generally being told about science and asked to remember facts. The challenge, therefore, is to re-imagine science education: to consider how it can be made fit for the modern world and how it can meet the needs of all students; those who will go on to work in scientific and technical subjects, and those who will not. Consequently, the science classroom should offer opportunities for teaching tailored to the students’ particular needs while it should provide continuous measures of competence, integral to the learning process that can help teachers work more effectively with individuals and leave a record of competence that is compelling to students. The talk will exemplarily present selected best practices of nowadays science classrooms by introducing options to overcome the idea of it being complex and too difficult to understand.
