Calandra, Brendan; Brantley-Dias, Laurie; Yerby, Johnathan; Demir, Kadir – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2018
A group of preservice science teachers edited video footage of their practice teaching to identify and isolate critical incidents. They then wrote guided reflection papers on those critical incidents using different forms of media prompts while they wrote. The authors used a counterbalanced research design to compare the quality of writing that…

Crook, Simon J.; Sharma, Manjula D.; Wilson, Rachel – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2015
Using a mixed-methods approach the authors compared the associated practices of senior physics teachers (n = 7) and students (n = 53) in a 1:1 laptop environment with those of senior biology teachers (n = 10) and students (n = 125) also in a 1:1 laptop environment, in seven high schools in Sydney, NSW, Australia. They found that the physics…
