Kirkpatrick, Lori; Brown, Heather M.; Searle, Michelle; Smyth, Rachael E.; Ready, Emily A.; Kennedy, Kathleen – Computers in the Schools, 2018
The goal of this study was to add to the existing literature by examining the effect of 1:1 iPad integration on the achievement of Canadian Grade 7 students. The school board we worked with provided an iPad to each Grade 7 student in the district to keep for the remainder of their time in the district. We examined the impact of the iPads on…

Ogbuanya, Theresa Chinyere; Onele, Nicholas Ogbonna – Computers in the Schools, 2018
This study compared efficiency of desktop virtual reality with a conventional classroom learning practice for the teaching and learning of electrical/electronics technology. This was measured through academic achievement, learning interest, and engagement. A quasi-experimental design was employed for this study. Four universities were used for the…

Caglayan, Günhan – Computers in the Schools, 2018
The purpose of this research study was to understand how mathematics majors make sense of similar matrices, a linear algebra topic that is rich in internal and external connections, in a series of in-depth qualitative interviews in a technology-assisted (MATLAB) learning environment. The study was also an attempt to develop a cognitive theory in…

Blau, Ina; Grinberg, Ronen; Shamir-Inbal, Tamar – Computers in the Schools, 2018
This study examines the meaning attributed to the contribution of technology to pedagogical practices from the perspective of school ICT leaders. While previous studies use metaphors for bottom-up exploration, this study employs an innovative combination of bottom-up and top-down metaphor analysis based on two frameworks: (a) metaphors of general…

Petko, Dominik; Prasse, Doreen; Cantieni, Andrea – Computers in the Schools, 2018
Decades of research have shown that technological change in schools depends on multiple interrelated factors. Structural equation models explaining the interplay of factors often suffer from high complexity and low coherence. To reduce complexity, a more robust structural equation model was built with data from a survey of 349 Swiss primary school…

Khlaif, Zuheir – Computers in the Schools, 2018
Factors influencing the adoption and acceptance of tablets as a mobile technology were explored one year after their integration in middle schools in Palestine. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 15 teachers. The participants held a variety of attitudes toward accepting mobile technologies in their instruction. The findings revealed…

Eutsler, Lauren; Antonenko, Pavlo D.; Dawson, Kara – Computers in the Schools, 2018
This study examined how parents' reports of children's technology use in the home varies by a child's gender or grade level. Framed by technology adoption models, this mixed-method study gathered parent reports of their elementary child's use of portable technology for entertainment and learning in the home, collected from 120 surveys and 13…

Chen, Jie; Perie, Marianne – Computers in the Schools, 2018
Due to increased use of computer-based assessments, comparability studies are moving beyond paper-and-pencil versus computer-based assessments to analyze variances with computers. It is therefore practically important to determine whether screen size and definition of the device affect students' performance. Using data from a large school district…

Cattaneo, Alberto A. P.; van der Meij, Hans; Sauli, Florinda – Computers in the Schools, 2018
Recent technological advances are rekindling educational interest in hypervideo (HV). HV provides a good opportunity for enhanced teaching and learning thanks to its affordances for interactivity (advanced navigation control, hyperlinking with supplementary materials, and communication options). This study investigated how these functionalities…

Price, C. B.; Price-Mohr, R. M. – Computers in the Schools, 2018
All primary school children in England are required to write computer programs and learn about computational thinking. There are moves in other countries to this effect such as the U.S. K-12 Computer Science Framework (CSF) for development. Debates on how to program and what constitutes computational thinking are ongoing. Here we report on a study…
