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…

Redmond, Petrea; Peled, Yehuda – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
The ubiquitous nature of technology in the world has not yet translated into the ubiquitous use of technology to transform learning and teaching. Teachers lack the confidence and competence to integrate technology across a broad range of tools within a range of contexts. Technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) has become a common…

Sánchez-Prieto, José Carlos; Huang, Fang; Olmos-Migueláñez, Susana; García-Peñalvo, Francisco J.; Teo, Timothy – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
This research work intends to make an innovative contribution to the existing literature by studying the predictive effect of two relatively unexplored constructs on the adoption of an emerging technology, such as mobile devices, among a seldom-studied population in the European context (secondary education preservice teachers). To achieve this…

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…

Ozverir, Ildeniz; Herrington, Jan; Osam, Ulker Vanci – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2016
Knowledge obtained in higher education through de-contextualised tasks and activities often remains "inert" and learners cannot readily transfer understanding to novel contexts. Nowhere is this more evident than in learning a foreign language. Typical language interaction exercises in class do not mirror real-life language use and such…

Canal, Luisa; Ghislandi, Patrizia; Micciolo, Rocco – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
In this study, the participation of 119 students in an online asynchronous forum as part of an academic course on statistical methods was evaluated. The pattern of accesses during the course was analyzed by means of the cumulative mean function. Taking into account the times (hours) at which accesses occurred, it is possible to achieve more…

Mazzoni, Elvis; Iannone, Maria – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2014
In recent years, the huge success of social network sites (SNSs) has principally been determined by their ability to link people and their respective relationships. These relationships allow people to access different resources, information, emotional and social support, entertainment, as well as providing them with the opportunity to extend…

Chiu, Mei-Hung; Chou, Chin-Cheng; Wu, Wen-Lung; Liaw, Hongming – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2014
This paper explores whether facial microexpression state (FMES) changes can be used to identify moments of conceptual conflict, one of the pathways to conceptual change. It is known that when the preconditions of conceptual conflicts are met and conceptual conflicts are detected in students, it is then possible for conceptual change to take place.…

Zhao, Hong; Chen, Li; Panda, Santosh – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2014
This study reports on self-regulated learning (SRL) of Chinese distance learners by using a structured SRL scale. SRL of adult and lifelong learners is a well-researched area, though its application within distance education is a new area of investigation. Open and distance learning lean heavily on self-learning and self-learning resources, though…

Harnisch, Henriette; Taylor-Murison, Lou – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2012
This paper tackles two issues which are closely related: transition from pre-entry learning to studying at university and the role blended learning strategies might have in supporting this transition. It draws on the pilot delivery of two credit-bearing modules which were delivered in two pre-entry institutions. The modules followed two different…
