Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by Micheal Thair and David Treagust
Science teaching in Indonesia has undergone major reforms since independence. We examine the role of practical activities in secondary science from an international perspective and contrast this to a developing country perspective, identifying a number of constraints limiting the implementation of practical work. In examining major curriculum and teacher training reforms in Indonesia, continuing influences on science education from industrialized countries are acknowledged; however, unlike many other developing countries, Indonesia has essentially implemented curriculum and teacher training reforms using a pool of overseas trained senior teachers and locally trained personnel. A number of research studies on physics practical work in Indonesia are described, and the benefits and constraints of implementing practical work in physics classrooms are discussed.
