Journal Article Detail Page

written by Nam-Hwa Kang
Epistemic agency is a conceptual tool for creating effective teaching methods that involve students taking accountability for their own learning and aligns with the broader emphasis on agency in modern education. However, there is a challenge in balancing this approach with the need to cover traditional physics content within the limited timeframe of the academic year. To ensure success, carefully designed courses are needed and the potential of digital technologies holds promise in this regard. This Perspective discusses the importance of fostering epistemic agency among Generation Z students -- digital natives -- in the context of physics education. It explores innovative teaching approaches that empower students to take initiative in their learning. These approaches leverage digital technologies to handle complex data and address authentic (real life, complex) problems, ultimately enhancing students' epistemic agency.
