Weurlander, Maria; Cronhjort, Mikael; Filipsson, Lars – Higher Education Research and Development, 2017
This study reports on an educational development initiative where peer instruction was used instead of traditional lectures in a calculus course for first-year engineering students. The aim of the study was to explore students' experiences of this method. Data were collected by means of an open-ended questionnaire on two occasions: early and late…

Cleveland, Lacy M.; Olimpo, Jeffrey T.; DeChenne-Peters, Sue Ellen – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2017
In response to calls for reform in undergraduate biology education, we conducted research examining how varying active-learning strategies impacted students' conceptual understanding, attitudes, and motivation in two sections of a large-lecture introductory cell and molecular biology course. Using a quasi-experimental design, we collected…

Chen, Min; Yu, Sheng Quan; Chiang, Feng Kuang – Interactive Learning Environments, 2017
Most ubiquitous learning researchers use resource recommendation and retrieving based on context to provide contextualized learning resources, but it is the kind of one-way context matching. Learners always obtain fixed digital learning resources, which present all learning contents in any context. This study proposed a dynamic ubiquitous learning…

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…

Aslan, Bilge; Seker, Hasan – Journal of Education and Learning, 2017
In globally developing education system, technology has made instructional improved in many ways. One of these improvements is the Interactive Response Systems (IRS) that are applied in classroom activities. Therefore, it is "smart" to focus on interactive response systems in learning environment. This study was conducted aiming to focus…

Lucke, Terry; Dunn, Peter K.; Christie, Michael – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2017
This case study trialled the introduction of a student-response system (Top Hat) in a third-year engineering Fluid Mechanics course (n = 44) to improve student engagement, motivation and cognition. It was recognised that for the potential benefits of student-response systems (SRSs) to be fully realised, more time must be allocated for student…

Chou, Chin-Cheng – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
Elementary school remedial teaching has been promoted for many years in Taiwan but it has primarily been aimed at Chinese and mathematics with little attention being paid to natural sciences. Due to the current shortage of natural science teachers, along with limitations in school budget and manpower, it is difficult to put natural science…

Aliagas, Cristina; Margallo, Ana María – Literacy, 2017
This paper reports on some data on the effects of screen-based interactivity on children's engagement with storybook apps during family shared book reading that were gathered in a 2-year, small-scale ethnographic case study in Spain. Data analysis focuses on the complex interplay between the storybook app's interactive features and the children's…

Egelandsdal, Kjetil; Krumsvik, Rune Johan – Education and Information Technologies, 2017
Lecturing is often criticized for being a monological and student passive way of teaching. However, digital technology such as Student Response Systems (SRS) can be used to reconstruct the traditional lecturing format. During a series of five two-hour lectures in "qualitative methods" for first year psychology students, we used SRS to…

Herda, Daniel – Teaching Sociology, 2017
The current analysis examines the degree to which a classroom activity using student response systems (SRS) can improve the accuracy of commonly held demographic misperceptions. Overestimation of religious, racial, and immigrant minority population sizes is pervasive in the United States and Western Europe, and such inaccuracies predict more…

Krause, Jennifer M.; O'Neil, Kason; Dauenhauer, Brian – Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, 2017
Classroom response systems have become popular in K-12 and higher education settings in recent years in order to gauge student learning. The physical education environment is unique in that it is difficult to manage the technology associated with these systems, and therefore, student assessment can be cumbersome. A free classroom response system…

Basitere, Moses; Ndeto Ivala, Eunice – Electronic Journal of e-Learning, 2017
Today's 21st century students are regarded as "digital natives," who are influenced by digital environments for acquisition of information, communication and interaction. With the emergence of new technologies, educators are encouraged to find meaningful ways of incorporating these technologies into their classrooms. The practice…

Gibbons, Rebecca E.; Laga, Emily E.; Leon, Jessica; Villafan~e, Sachel M.; Stains, Marilyne; Murphy, Kristen; Raker, Jeffrey R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Research on classroom response systems (CRSs) in chemical education has primarily focused on the development of evidence-based strategies for implementation and novel practitioner uses of CRSs in instructional practice. Our national survey of postsecondary chemistry faculty extends these discussions, providing a broad-based understanding of the…

Hung, Hsiu-Ting – Language Learning & Technology, 2017
The present study incorporates a student response system (SRS) as a means to engage students in a flipped classroom and promote active learning. While the effectiveness of such systems with regard to student learning has been well documented in disciplines that are dominated by lecture-based instruction, no studies have compared the effectiveness…

Borda, Emily J.; Boudreaux, Andrew; Fackler-Adams, Ben; Frazey, Paul; Julin, Sara; Pennington, Gregory; Ogle, Jared – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Passive, lecture-based forms of instruction are often ineffective in helping students develop deep conceptual understanding of scientific concepts. Student-centered forms of instruction based in a constructivist framework, where students are guided toward actively constructing their understanding, have been met with greater success. However,…
