Creating Stop-Motion Videos with iPads to Support Students’ Understanding of Cell Processes: ’Because You Have to Know What You’re Talking about to Be Able to Do It”
The purpose of this case study is two-fold: (a) describe the implementation of a stop-motion animation video activity to support students’ understanding of cell processes, and (b) present research findings about students’ beliefs and use of iPads to support their creation of stop-motion videos in an introductory biology course. Data indicated that students used the devices extensively to access, seek, and share information related to cell processes, which led to their increased familiarity with using the iPad to support their learning.

Teachers’ Awareness of Their Diverse Classrooms: The Nature of Elementary Teachers’ Reflections on Their Science Teaching Practice
This article examines in-service elementary teachers’ reflections on their science teaching when working with diverse students. The findings provide an understanding of how these teachers examined their teaching and beliefs about their science teaching practice. Participants’ reflections indicated that knowledge of their students’ culture and backgrounds influenced their teaching practices and the focus of their reflections. The authors also found that the participants examined five themes of teaching: (1) navigating the school world, (2) managing the technical classroom, (3) negotiating barriers, (4) nurturing all students, and (5) understanding learning.
