Kim, Lisa E.; Jörg, Verena; Klassen, Robert M. – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
The question of what makes a good teacher has been asked by practitioners, policymakers, and researchers for decades. However, there is no guiding framework about which qualities are important for teachers. Thus, it is necessary to examine these qualities using a recognized framework and to summarize the previous literature on this topic. We…

Daley, Nola; Rawson, Katherine A. – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
Textbook passages commonly include elaborations (details supporting main ideas) with the assumption that elaborations will improve learning of the main ideas. However, elaborations increase text length, which subsequently increases the reading time of that text. These observations lead to the two focal questions of interest in the current study:…

Morehead, Kayla; Dunlosky, John; Rawson, Katherine A. – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
Many students use laptops to take notes in classes, but does using them impact later test performance? In a high-profile investigation comparing note-taking writing on paper versus typing on a laptop keyboard, Mueller and Oppenheimer ("Psychological Science," 25, 1159-1168, 2014) concluded that taking notes by longhand is superior. We…

The body of research surrounding the relationship between visuospatial working memory (VSWM) and mathematics performance remains in its infancy. However, it is an area generating increasing interest as the performance of school leavers comes under constant scrutiny. In order to develop a coherent understanding of the literature to date, all…

van der Wilt, Femke; van der Veen, Chiel; van Kruistum, Claudia; van Oers, Bert – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
Being rejected by peers has devastating consequences for a child's future social-cognitive development. It is therefore important to investigate factors that contribute to childhood peer rejection. In doing so, the present review specifically focused on sociometric status, a concept that refers to a child's position within the peer group (e.g.,…

Wang, Weimeng; Liao, Manqian; Stapleton, Laura – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
Many national and international educational data collection programs offer researchers opportunities to investigate contextual effects related to student performance. In those programs, schools are often used in the first-stage sampling process and students are randomly drawn from selected schools. However, the "incidental" dependence of…

Self-regulation--the capacity to modulate attention and emotion--is a robust predictor of important outcomes across the life span. Contemplative practices, such as yoga and mindfulness, have been implemented in schools and shown to improve self-regulation. For the most part, studies incorporating contemplative practices have used quantitative…

The role writing plays in learning science has evolved over time, as have the settings and contexts in which writing in science research has taken place. This systematic review examines 20 years (1996-2016) of writing in science intervention studies in K-12 settings with a specific focus on comparing contexts that do and do not include English…

There is growing interest in the use of tablets in classrooms, and educational policies from different countries promote their integration. Previous literature reviews were conducted on the effects of the use of tablets in learning. There is, however, a strong need to understand how students perceive the use of tablets for learning as these…

Duijzer, Carolien; Van den Heuvel-Panhuizen, Marja; Veldhuis, Michiel; Doorman, Michiel; Leseman, Paul – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
Embodied learning environments have a substantial share in teaching interventions and research for enhancing learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. In these learning environments, students' bodily experiences are an essential part of the learning activities and hence, of the learning. In this systematic…

Kloos, Heidi; Baker, Heather; Waltzer, Talia – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
In the current paper, we develop an approach to early science pedagogy that is based on insights about how complex adaptive systems function. Complexity approaches have an important advantage over traditional information-processing approaches: They anticipate the proverbial 'mind with a mind of its own' without having to postulate exclusively…

Wang, Hui; Hall, Nathan C.; Taxer, Jamie L. – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
"Emotional labor" represents a long-standing area of research that since its initial development by Hochschild (1983) has been increasingly explored to understand why and how teachers manage and express their emotions in class. However, previous studies investigating teachers' emotional labor have utilized varying conceptual frameworks…

Chow, Jason C.; Wehby, Joseph H. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
A growing body of evidence points to the common co-occurrence of language and behavioral difficulties in children. Primary studies often focus on this relation in children with identified deficits. However, it is unknown whether this relation holds across other children at risk or representative samples of children or over time. The purpose of…
