Kenneth Tobin mainly focuses on Pedagogy, Mathematics education, Science education, Teacher education and Teaching method. In the subject of general Pedagogy, his work in Science instruction, Learning to teach and Secondary education is often linked to Perspective, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His work in the fields of Mathematics education, such as Learning theory, Primary education and Learning environment, intersects with other areas such as Class and Cognitive level.

Kenneth Tobin has included themes like Academic achievement, Student engagement, Learning sciences and Curriculum in his Science education study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Anthropology, Sociocultural perspective and Teaching and learning center in addition to Learning sciences. His Educational technology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cooperative learning and Science communication.

His most cited work include:

  • International handbook of science education (1137 citations)
  • The Practice of constructivism in science education (469 citations)
  • Research on Science Laboratory Activities: In Pursuit of Better Questions and Answers to Improve Learning (357 citations)
