|Abstract: ||Earth Science education (ESE) emerges as a relatively new research area and there is an unquestioned need for improving students´ abilities on that field (American Geological Institute, 2008), taking into account that it is important for students’ everyday lives and thus, relevant for scientific literacy. So, the inclusion of a section concerned with this issue, was a very wise decision of the 1st Geological Congress at East-Timor Organising Committee, revealing an up to date vision about education for the XXI century.
The paper will be divided in four sections:
- Science Education - meaning, epistemology and rationale;
- Earth- science-education all over the World in the context of Science Education;
- Earth- science education in East-Timor secondary school curriculum;
- Earth-science education and challenges for the future|
