Park, Sanghoon; Braud, Allison – Computers in the Schools, 2017
This study examined the effects of different multimedia design modalities on middle-school students' motivation and achievement in history and also sought to determine whether an interaction effect on achievement occurs between students' prior knowledge and the different multimedia design modalities. Two groups of eighth-grade students enrolled in…

Rincker, Meg; Misner, Susan – Computers in the Schools, 2017
School physical education teachers promote fitness by offering children a variety of aerobic activities. Our interdisciplinary team developed a cultural dance active video game (AVG) and tested whether the AVG was equivalent to traditional face-to-face instructor lessons or hybrid instruction at dance mastery, increasing heart rates, and student…

Gurevich, Irina; Stein, Hana; Gorev, Dvora – Computers in the Schools, 2017
This research traced changes in choices of technological tools and attitudes toward technology use among novice mathematics teachers at three stages of their professional development: as pre-service teachers, a year later, and in their work as novice teachers. At each stage, the participants were required to evaluate the benefits of technology use…

Abramovich, Sergei; Nikitin, Yakov Yu. – Computers in the Schools, 2017
This article is written to share teaching ideas about using commonly available computer applications--a spreadsheet, "The Geometer's Sketchpad", and "Wolfram Alpha"--to explore three classic and historically significant problems from the probability theory. These ideas stem from the authors' work with prospective economists,…

Carpenter, Jeffrey P.; Justice, Julie Ellison – Computers in the Schools, 2017
Computer applications readily available to many of today's teachers and students offer new possibilities for teaching and learning. One example of this can be found in the Global Read Aloud (GRA) project. Since its 2010 creation, more than one million PK-12 students from at least 60 countries have reportedly participated in the GRA, an annual…

Kim, Daesang; Downey, Steve – Computers in the Schools, 2016
Heinich et al. (1999) introduced the ASSURE model to guide teachers in how to plan and deliver lessons that effectively integrate technology into their classroom teaching. Its straightforward, practical approach has made it one of the most widely taught instructional models in the education arena. However, for all of its widespread use, there is…

Caglayan, Gunhan – Computers in the Schools, 2016
This qualitative research, drawing on the theoretical frameworks by Even (1990, 1993) and Sfard (2007), investigated five high school mathematics teachers' geometric interpretations of complex number multiplication along with the roots of unity. The main finding was that mathematics teachers constructed the modulus, the argument, and the conjugate…

Mehring, Jeff – Computers in the Schools, 2016
The flipped classroom can support the implementation of a communicative, student-centered learning environment in the English as a foreign language classroom. Unfortunately, there is little research which supports the incorporation of flipped learning in the English as a foreign language classroom. Numerous studies have focused on flipped learning…

Lindstrom, Denise L.; Niederhauser, Dale S. – Computers in the Schools, 2016
The authors, working from a "new literacies studies" perspective, suggest that educators can better teach their students if they develop their own knowledge of the purposes, types, and language conventions students use in their informal out-of-school literacy practices. The purpose of this study was to identify the literacy practices…

Curcic, Svjetlana; Johnstone, Robin S. – Computers in the Schools, 2016
This study examined the effects of an intervention in writing with digital interactive books. To improve the writing skills of seventh- and eighth-grade students with a learning disability in reading, we conducted a quasi-experimental study in which the students read interactive digital books (i-books), took notes, wrote summaries, and acted as…

Elkin, Mollie; Sullivan, Amanda; Bers, Marina Umaschi – Computers in the Schools, 2016
KIBO is a developmentally appropriate robotics kit for young children that is programmed using interlocking wooden blocks; no screens or keyboards are required. This study describes a pilot KIBO robotics curriculum at an urban public preschool in Rhode Island and presents data collected on children's knowledge of foundational programming concepts…

Butzler, Kelly B. – Computers in the Schools, 2016
Students at open-enrollment institutions enter college with a wide range of academic preparedness and are often required to take developmental classes to increase their academic skills to be successful in higher education. Further, few students possess self-regulated learning skills to aid in their learning. Researchers posited that academically…

Unruh, Tiffany; Peters, Michelle L.; Willis, Jana – Computers in the Schools, 2016
The purpose of this research was to compare the beliefs and attitudes of teachers using the flipped versus the traditional class model. Survey and interview data were collected from a matched sample of in-service teachers representing both models from a large suburban southeastern Texas school district. The Attitude Towards Technology Scale, the…
