Rely on a Strong Evidence Base for Improving Student Outcomes

The Oz-e-Science teaching approach draws on research that analyses the most effective teaching methods around the world. This research includes McKinsey & Company analysis of the 2015 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) that found the best performing education systems in the world use a blend of teacher-directed and inquiry-based instruction. The optimum balance preferences includes teacher-directed instruction while providing opportunities for inquiry learning.
Also, the internationally acclaimed research of Professor John Hattie on how different instructional strategies work better at different phases of learning. Oz-e-science identifies the three phases and gets the timing right for using different teaching strategies.

Develop Confidence to Teach Science

Teaching science can be difficult, especially for generalist primary school teachers. Oz-e-Science provides all the background information and content teachers need as well as Teaching Guides and multimedia presentations to explicitly teach the lessons.
