Bordes, Stephen – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Medical students have difficulty understanding the mechanisms underlying hyperkalemia-mediated local control of blood flow. Such control mechanisms are crucial in the brain, kidney, and skeletal muscle vasculature. We aimed to identify medical students' misconceptions via assessment of students' in-class knowledge and, subsequently, improve future…

Weiss, David J.; McGuire, Patrick; Clouse, Wendi; Sandoval, Raphael – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
Studies on the effectiveness of clickers in undergraduate chemistry courses are mixed, and there is disagreement on how to effectively leverage clickers to improve student learning performance. To fill a gap in the research, we analyzed three different teaching strategies (two involving clickers) in a General Chemistry I course over a 13-year time…

Goodhead, Lauren K.; MacMillan, Frances M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The authors have experienced increasing demand from undergraduate students, particularly those in the early years of study, to be able to access more "test-style" material to help with revision, as well as guidance on how to approach their university assessments. With increased use of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) in university…

Balta, Nuri; Tzafilkou, Katerina – Education and Information Technologies, 2019
The aim of this study was to understand how students' attitudes were connected to the web based software Socrative. The study was conducted with 50 students taking first year physics courses in a university. The survey dimensions were based on four previous research works and the survey instrument was extended to better reflect the current study…

Ghanaat Pisheh, Etrat AlZahra; NejatyJahromy, Yaser; Gargari, Rahim Badri; Hashemi, Touraj; Fathi-Azar, Eskandar – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The effect of the implementation of student response systems (SRSs) in teaching on the critical thinking (CT) of young students was investigated. The study benefited from a quasi-experimental design and a pretest/posttest set-up. Subjects consisted of 156 K-8 students in Tehran during 2016-2017, selected through a multistage cluster sampling, and…

Khan, Asiya; Schoenborn, Priska; Sharma, Sanjay – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2019
This paper presents results from a small-scale study of third-year Instrumentation and Control Engineering (n = 37) at the University of Plymouth. The aim of the study was to enhance student learning and increase participation via the use of clickers. Clickers allow for student participation anonymously. The lecture content was modified to embed…

Buil, Isabel; Catalán, Sara; Martínez, Eva – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Flow is a state of total absorption and concentration in an activity that is desirable for students, as it enhances the learning experience. Due to the importance of flow for learning, this research investigates the influence of three flow preconditions--namely balance of skill and challenge, feedback and goal clarity--on students' flow,…

Shortlidge, Erin E.; Rain-Griffith, Liz; Shelby, Chloe; Shusterman, Gwendolyn P.; Barbera, Jack – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2019
Embedding active learning is a common mechanism for meeting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education reform goals. Researchers have identified student benefits from such strategies, yet these benefits may not be universal for all students. We sought to identify how students at a nontraditional university perceive…

Kent, David – Language Learning & Technology, 2019
Although studies using student response systems (SRSs) within the English as a foreign language (EFL) classroom are relatively rare, there is increasing evidence from a range of disciplines to highlight the potential behind application of these systems for student learning. Consequently, this study contributes to filling this gap by demonstrating…

Ellah, Barnabas O.; Achor, Emmanuel E.; Enemarie, Veronica – Journal of Education and e-Learning Research, 2019
The study sought to determine the relationship between problem-solving skills and measure of working memory and attention span of science students of low ability level. The study adopted correlational survey research design. The population for the study comprised all Secondary School I (SSI) that offered physics, chemistry and biology as school…

Liu, Chenchen; Sands-Meyer, Sarah; Audran, Jacques – Interactive Learning Environments, 2019
Flipped classes are well-known for reversing the typical in-class lecture and out-of-class homework structure by instructing students to learn by themselves from on-line learning materials and inviting them to ask questions based on their individual difficulties in class. Many attempts at integrating this teaching method into English as a foreign…

Watson, Sandy White – Science Teacher, 2019
Educational researchers have long advocated for the integration of computer simulations (sims) in science courses, citing the positive effects these tools have on students' science conceptual comprehension (Develaki 2017; Hannafin, West, and Shepard 2009; Lamb et al. 2011). In fact, Liao (2007) investigated the learning differences between…

Chan, Simon C. H.; Ko, Stephen – Journal of Education for Business, 2019
The use of personal response systems (PRSs) to support the learning process is increasing. This study examines the impact of PRSs from individual learners' and instructors' perspectives on individual learners' engagement with PRSs and their learning performance. Data were collected from a sample of 236 undergraduate bachelor of business…

Aljaloud, Abdulaziz; Gromik, Nicolas; Kwan, Paul; Billingsley, William – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
This study aimed to investigate how the use of a smartphone clicker app by a group of 390 Saudi Arabian male undergraduate students would impact their learning performance while participating in a computer science class. The smartphone clicker app was used by the students during peer group discussions and to respond to teacher questions. A…

Moorleghen, Dylan M.; Oli, Naresh; Crowe, Alison J.; Liepkalns, Justine S.; Self, Casey J.; Doherty, Jennifer H. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Cell phones have long been known as a potential distraction from attention intensive activities such as studying and driving. Many, however, are developing the cell phone as a powerful tool to augment some of these same activities. Audience response systems (ARSs) are a type of teaching tool that allows educators to poll audience members in real…
