Wolski, Robert; Jagodzinski, Piotr – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
The rapid development of information and communication technologies has enabled the development of interfaces, which allow the recognition of the gestures and movements of the user. These interfaces, due to their affordable prices, are available to a wide range of users. They are called natural user interfaces (NUI). NUI are commonly used in game…

Cai, Su; Liu, Enrui; Yang, Yang; Liang, Jyh-Chong – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Most studies of Augmented Reality (AR) in education have considered students' learning outcomes and motivation. Previous studies have revealed that AR has the potential to help students learn abstract conceptions in mathematics. In this paper, a series of statistics and probability lessons using AR installed on tablets was designed and developed…

Denham, André R. – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Currently there are few pedagogical models available for mathematics teachers who are interested in digital game-based learning. The Play Curricular-activity Reflection and Discussion (PCaRD) model attempts to address this, but lacks the needed exploratory research on its implementation within formal mathematics classrooms. Through the use of…

Wu, Bian; Yu, Xiaoxue; Hu, Yiling – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
With the continuous deployment of ICT in K-12 education, strong access but weak uptake has become the greatest challenge for ICT implementation in schools. As the pioneer of China's K-12 educational reform, Shanghai draws our attention in terms of the critical factors and the underlying mechanism of ICT transformation in K-12 schools. The study…

van der Meij, Hans – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
The effectiveness of demonstration-based training (DBT) videos for software training has been investigated for a Western audience. These studies have generally found that the demonstration videos significantly enhanced self-efficacy and task performance, but also that there was a gap between task practice and learning with the latter lagging…

Cui, Jingjing; Yu, Shengquan – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Flipped classroom is an approach that has been increasingly used in K-12 and higher education. Many studies on the flipped classroom have focused on student behaviors, with inadequate attention to student thinking, which is crucial to learning. Meanwhile, prior studies have examined the effects of visualization tools, such as concept map, on…

Sullivan, Florence R.; Keith, P. Kevin – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
In this study, we explore the potential of a natural language processing (NLP) approach to support discourse analysis of in-situ, small group learning conversations. The theoretical basis of this work derives from Bakhtin's notion of speech genres as bounded by educational robotics activity. Our goal is to leverage computational linguistics…

Cutumisu, Maria; Chin, Doris B.; Schwartz, Daniel L. – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
A major goal of contemporary education is to teach students how to learn on their own. Assessments have largely lagged behind this goal, because they measure what students have learned and not necessarily their learning processes. This research presents Posterlet, an assessment that collects evidence regarding the strategies that students choose…

Cabus, Sofie J.; Haelermans, Carla; Franken, Sonja – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2017
This paper explored the effects of in-class-level differentiation by making innovative use of an interactive whiteboard (SMARTboard) on math proficiency. Therefore, this paper evaluates the use of SMARTboard in class, in combination with teacher training, using a randomized field experiment among 199 pre-vocational students in seventh grade in the…
