Fleischmann, Katja – Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, 2019
Digital technology is reshaping the way higher education subjects are taught, including design. Various design disciplines use studio teaching as a pedagogy to educate students for professions in art and design. Studio teaching bases a high premium on face-to-face interactions which guide learning through dialogue and feedback on individual work.…

Clark, Jeffrey; Crandall, Philip G.; Pellegrino, Robert; Shabatura, Jessica – Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, 2019
The present study evaluated active, hands on foodservice training delivered through smart glasses compared to passive, strictly video-based training. Handwashing performance variables were measured, including frequency and efficacy. Participants in the strictly video-based group (N = 24) were four times more likely to wash hands than the smart…

Galway, Lindsay P.; Berry, Barbara; Takaro, Timothy K. – Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, 2015
The flipped classroom instructional model has emerged as an alternative to the conventional lecture-based teaching that has dominated higher education for decades. In 2013, a cohort of graduate-level public health students participated in a flipped environmental and occupational health course. We present the design, implementation, and evaluation…

Kay, Robin; Edwards, Jaime – Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, 2012
Video podcasts allow students to control when, where, and what they learn, as well as the pace of learning. Considerable research has been conducted in higher education on video podcast use, but not in middle schools (grades six to eight). This study investigated the use of worked example video podcasts in mathematics classrooms with students 11…

Pellerin, Martine; Montes, Carlos Soler – Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, 2012
The study explores the effectiveness of the implementation of blended teaching (BT) by combining the Spanish online resource "Aula Virtual de Espanol" (AVE) with the face-to-face (F2F) delivery approach in second language Spanish programs in two high schools in Alberta, Canada. Findings demonstrate the effectiveness of combining the…

Macdonald, Iain; Chiu, Jason – Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, 2011
A qualitative research project was conducted to test the viability of augmenting an e-learning program for workplace learners using mobile content delivered through smart phones. Ten learners taking a six week web-based e-learning course were given smart phones which enabled them to access approximately 70% of the course content, in addition to…

Moss, Joan; Beatty, Ruth – Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, 2010
Three classrooms of Grade 4 students from different schools and diverse backgrounds collaborated in early algebra research to solve a series of linear and quadratic generalizing problems. Results revealed that high- and low-achieving students were able to solve problems of recognized difficulty. We discuss Knowledge Building principles and…

Chuy, Maria; Scardamalia, Marlene; Bereiter, Carl; Prinsen, Fleur; Resendes, Monica; Messina, Richard; Hunsburger, Winifred; Teplovs, Chris; Chow, Angela – Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, 2010
In 1993 Carey and Smith conjectured that the most promising way to boost students' understanding of the nature of science is a "theory-building approach to teaching about inquiry." The research reported here tested this conjecture by comparing results from two Grade 4 classrooms that differed in their emphasis on and technological…

Brett, Clare; Forrester, Bruce; Fujita, Nobuko – Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, 2009
This study looked at the instructional and assessment effects of using learning journals in three distance asynchronous computer conferencing courses (n = 18, n = 16, n = 17). The instructor used a design-research methodology: each iteration of the course involved modifications to how learning journals were used based on analyses of the responses…

Murphy, Elizabeth – Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, 2008
The effectiveness of computer-based learning environments depends on learners' deployment of metacognitive and self-regulatory processes. Analysis of transmitted messages in a context of Computer Mediated Communication can provide a source of information on metacognitive activity. However, existing models or frameworks (e.g., Henri, 1992) that…

Reiss, David – Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, 2007
This paper summarizes research conducted on three computer based video models' effectiveness for learning based on memory and comprehension. In this quantitative study, a two-minute video presentation was created and played back in three different types of media players, for a sample of eighty-seven college freshman. The three players evaluated…
