?Schools should educate scientifically literate citizens, since they can contribute to the development of society in the technological field, because a technologically developed society enables sustainable development and greater prosperity.? (Devetak, p. 5) Understanding of concepts cannot be transmitted from a teacher to the students. To put it another way, understanding is not a commodity that can be transferred. Instead, each learner must create his or her own understanding of specific concepts. Teachers can support the development of students’ understanding, but they cannot give them knowledge. Information can be transmitted from one person to another, but understanding develops when a learner actively and mentally works to give meaning to experiences and ideas.
