Smidt, Andy; Markoulli, Constantina; Wine, Chloe; Chang, Elsie; Turnbull, Harmony; Huzmeli, Aylin; Hines, Monique – British Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2019
Background: Children and adults with developmental disability frequently require either aided or unaided alternative and augmentative communication (AAC). Key word sign (KWS) involves using natural gesture and sign language to support the key words in spoken utterances. The purpose of this study was to determine whether communication partners of…

Yildirim, Gurkan; Yildirim, Serkan; Dolgunsoz, Emrah – World Journal on Educational Technology: Current Issues, 2019
Virtual reality (VR) as computer-mediated 3-D environments including real-life situations presented via different tools in which users can interact effectively with visuals. This study is significant as it primarily aimed to investigate effects of VR on retention by comparing it with traditional 2-D videos. The main aim of this study is to compare…

Coker, Cheryl – Physical Educator, 2019
This study explored the influence of instructions that combine internal and external foci. Fifty-one subjects were randomly divided into 3 groups: internal only, external only, and a combined internal and external focus. The task was the overhand lacrosse throw for accuracy from a stationary position to a target located on a wall 6 m away.…

van de Ven, Marco; Segers, Eliane; Verhoeven, Ludo – Language Learning, 2019
This longitudinal randomized trial study investigated the effects of phonological specificity training on second language (L2) vocabulary learning. Eighty-six Dutch secondary-school students participated in one of two experimental conditions or in an animacy judgment (active control) condition. Participants in the phonological specificity training…

Chen, Tianxu – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Character learning is a key issue for second language (L2) Chinese learners. However, our understanding is limited regarding the extent to which the multilevel linguistic knowledge simultaneously works for learning characters, particularly for L2 compound character meaning retention. To fill these gaps, two research questions were addressed. (1)…

Tse, Andy C. Y. – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Inability to acquire a new motor skill is a common motor difficulty in children with autism spectrum disorder. The purpose of this study is to examine whether the motor learning benefits of an external focus of attention for typically developing children and children with intellectual disabilities could also be applied to children with autism…

Marquardson, Jim; Gomillion, David L. – Information Systems Education Journal, 2019
Simulated environments can provide a convenient, effective way to teach skills. Simulations have been used for decades to teach skills such as piloting aircraft. As technology has improved, it has become feasible to simulate many other tasks. Recent advances in virtual and augmented reality provide new avenues for expanding training using…

Liu, Tzu-Chien; Lin, Yi-Chun; Gao, Yuan; Paas, Fred – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
The finding that under split-attention conditions students learn more from a picture and spoken text than from a picture and written text (ie, the modality effect) has consistently been found in many types of computer-assisted multimedia learning environments. Using 58 fifth-grade and sixth-grade elementary school children as participants, we…

Cahillane, Marie; MacLean, Piers; Smy, Victoria – Interactive Learning Environments, 2019
Periods of no practice in performing a technical procedure may impact on the retention of the procedural skills required to produce VLE content. This exploratory paper reports a case study into the application of a validated skills retention model, the User Decision Aid (UDA). Use of the UDA results in a series of indicative retention rates…

Vlach, Haley A.; DeBrock, Catherine A. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Children are able to resolve the referential ambiguity of learning new words by tracking co-occurrence probabilities across moments in time, a behavior termed cross-situational word learning (CSWL). Although we know that children can use co-occurrence data to map words to objects, the literature has a striking limitation: research has focused on…

Gbenga-Akanmu, Taiwo Oladunni; Jegede, Philip Olu – World Journal of Education, 2019
The study examined the effect of meta-cognitive training on field-dependent and field-independent primary school pupils' knowledge of numeracy concepts. It also investigated the moderating effects of sex on meta-cognitive training of the two categories of learners on performance in numeracy. In addition, it investigated the moderating effects of…

Newton, Genevieve; Rajakaruna, Rebecca; Kulak, Verena; Albabish, William; Gilley, Brett H.; Ritchie, Kerry – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Two-stage collaborative testing is an assessment strategy that involves students initially writing a test individually and then immediately afterward writing the same (or similar) test again in groups. Current evidence shows that two-stage testing improves performance on multiple-choice tests as well as short-term retention of material, but little…
