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…

Papadopoulos, Pantelis M.; Natsis, Antonis; Obwegeser, Nikolaus; Weinberger, Armin – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The aim of the present study (n = 113) was to examine how (objective and subjective) information on peers' preparation, confidence, and past performance can support students in answering correctly in audience response systems (aka clickers). The result analysis shows that in the "challenging" questions, in which answers diverged,…

Wang, Y.-H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
Previous studies on the interactive response system (IRS) have generally adopted the lecture method to facilitate teaching and learning, while few have made efforts to investigate the learning effects of instructional methods and IRS activities on learning and teaching. The purpose of the present study was therefore to explore whether the use of…

Barr, M. L. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
The purpose of this study was to examine the role of anonymity in encouraging college students to be more cognitively engaged in lectures. Kinesiology majors from three universities were asked to respond to questions during two consecutive lectures using response methods of opposing degrees of anonymity, one using "clickers" and the…

Hooker, J. F.; Denker, K. J.; Summers, M. E.; Parker, M. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2016
Previous research into the benefits student response systems (SRS) that have been brought into the classroom revealed that SRS can contribute positively to student experiences. However, while the benefits of SRS have been conceptualized and operationalized into a widely cited scale, the validity of this scale had not been tested. Furthermore,…

Morice, J.; Michinov, N.; Delaval, M.; Sideridou, A.; Ferrières, V. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Peer instruction has been recognized as an instructional method having a positive impact on learning compared to traditional lectures in science. This method has been widely supported by the socio-constructivist approach to learning giving a positive role to interaction between peers in the construction of knowledge. As far as we know, no study…
