Johanes, Petr; Thille, Candace – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Education and education research are experiencing increased digitization and datafication, partly thanks to the rise in popularity of massively open online courses (MOOCs). The infrastructures that collect, store and analyse the resulting big data have received critical scrutiny from sociological, epistemological, ethical and analytical…

Richards, Deborah; Dignum, Virginia – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Pedagogical Agents (PAs) that would guide interactions in intelligent learning environments were envisioned two decades ago. These early animated characters had been shown to deliver learning benefits. However, little was understood regarding what aspects were beneficial for learning and what sort of learning PAs were suitable for. This article…

Kitto, Kirsty; Knight, Simon – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Artificial intelligence and data analysis (AIDA) are increasingly entering the field of education. Within this context, the subfield of learning analytics (LA) has, since its inception, had a strong emphasis upon ethics, with numerous checklists and frameworks proposed to ensure that student privacy is respected and potential harms avoided. Here,…

Kim, Dongho; Lee, In-Heok; Park, Joo-Ho – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Open educational resources (OERs) are increasingly adopted in non-formal education contexts. However, little research has been conducted to investigate the self-directed learning patterns of non-formal learners using OERs. A lack of knowledge about non-formal learners precludes discussions on how to support their self-regulated learning in open…

Beckman, Karley; Bennett, Sue; Lockyer, Lori – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Disparities in the technology practices, skills and knowledge of school students still exist, despite widespread investment, and use in schools. In order to understand why inequalities remain, we first need a more nuanced understanding of students' technology practice, including understanding how their backgrounds, circumstances and experiences…

Hersh, Marion; Mouroutsou, Stella – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
The paper uses data from a 15-country study to discuss the factors which affect the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) and learning technologies by disabled people and consequently their access to education. Significant differences were found both between and within countries: income and language were the main factors…

Sidi, Yael; Blau, Ina; Eshet-Alkalai, Yoram – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Academic dishonesty has been growing in both digital and analog settings. The present study aimed to generalize the ethical dissonance index (EDI), which was established in a sample of Israeli school students as the gap between the pervasiveness of academic dishonesty and its perceived legitimacy. Furthermore, the study examined how technology,…

Grant, David G. – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
There is a need to understand antecedents to US teens' use of information and communication technology (ICT). Research on the "digital divide" for access to ICT reports conflicting findings based on gender and demographic factors of parent income and education. This study expanded the "tool-will-skill" framework to examine how…

Pei, Bo; Xing, Wanli; Lee, Hee-Sun – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Science classes should support students' development of scientific argumentation. While previous studies have analyzed argumentative texts, they have overlooked the ways in which other types of representations, including images, affect the production of such texts. In addition, studies into the use of visual images in science education have…

Silber-Varod, Vered; Eshet-Alkalai, Yoram; Geri, Nitza – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Recently, learning technologies have become a pivotal constituent of teaching-learning processes. Contemporary studies indicate that in order to effectively utilize these technologies, instructors and learners alike must master a range of cognitive and socio-emotional competencies, commonly termed "digital literacy competencies" or…

Xu, Zhihong; Wijekumar, Kausalai; Ramirez, Gilbert; Hu, Xueyan; Irey, Robin – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
This meta-analysis examined the effectiveness of improving reading comprehension for students in K-12 classrooms using intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs), a computer-based learning environment that provides customizable and immediate feedback to the learner. Nineteen studies from 13 publications incorporating approximately 10 000 students were…

Williamson, Ben – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Digital data are transforming higher education (HE) to be more student-focused and metrics-centred. In the UK, capturing detailed data about students has become a government priority, with an emphasis on using student data to measure, compare and assess university performance. The purpose of this paper is to examine the governmental and commercial…

Mavrikis, Manolis; Geraniou, Eirini; Gutierrez Santos, Sergio; Poulovassilis, Alexandra – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
While it is commonly accepted that Learning Analytics (LA) tools can support teachers' awareness and classroom orchestration, not all forms of pedagogy are congruent to the types of data generated by digital technologies or the algorithms used to analyse them. One such pedagogy that has been so far underserved by LA is exploratory learning,…

Checking the identity of students and authorship of their online submissions is a major concern in Higher Education due to the increasing amount of plagiarism and cheating using the Internet. The literature on the effects of e-authentication systems for teaching staff is very limited because it is a novel procedure for them. A considerable gap is…
