Ladeji-Osias, Jumoke O.; Partlow, LaDawn E.; Dillon, Edward C. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Contribution: This paper shows that participating in a year-round program for African-American male middle school students (ages 10-14) can positively impact their attitudes toward STEM, their confidence in problem solving and team work, and their interest in STEM careers, but may not impact the interest in taking STEM classes to the same extent.…

Ibáñez, María-Blanca; Di-Serio, Ángela; Villarán-Molina, Diego; Delgado-Kloos, Carlos – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2015
This paper reports empirical evidence on having students use AR-SaBEr, a simulation tool based on augmented reality (AR), to discover the basic principles of electricity through a series of experiments. AR-SaBEr was enhanced with knowledge-based support and inquiry-based scaffolding mechanisms, which proved useful for discovery learning in…
