Research holds an important role in modern societies. It can support the enhancement of understanding, within a community, about a topic of interest and the development of relevant theoretical or technological innovations. For instance, within science education, research can help us improve our understanding, as a community, about how various factors relate to teaching/learning in science and how they can support (or impede) the learning process.

The project aims to research the use of technology in formative assessment classroom practices in ways that allow teachers to respond to the emerging needs of low achieving learners in mathematics and science so that they are better motivated in their learning of these important subjects.

ENGAGE is about equipping the next generation to participate in scientific issues to change how science is taught. Traditionally students gain an image of science as a body of content. Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), on the other hand, deals with uncertain areas of knowledge, where values and argument matter as much as facts. The greater challenge in making the shift to the latter relates to helping teachers develop the beliefs, knowledge and classroom practice for RRI teaching. The project focuses on this particular issue.
