Abstract

This concluding chapter canvasses ongoing discussions in science education communities about the future role for, and applications of metaphors and analogies. In so doing, we hope that readers will become more aware of their metaphorical thinking so that they can act in ways that enhance their students’ learning

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
