Heinze, Aiso; Arend, Julia; Gruessing, Meike; Lipowsky, Frank – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2018
The adaptive use of strategies, that is selecting a strategy which allows an efficient solution for a given problem, can be considered as an important individual ability relevant in various domains. Based on models of subjects' skills of adaptive use of strategies, two idealized instructional approaches are suggested to foster students in their…

Stewart, Olivia G.; Jordan, Michelle E. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
Recent scholarship highlights the wealth of varied and interconnected opportunities for learning science that informal environments can provide; yet, participants with different experiences, knowledge, and backgrounds do not all learn in the same ways. Thus, studies are needed that examine how particular participants take up learning opportunities…

Alt, Dorit – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
The aim of this study was to assess the connection between students' perceived constructivist learning environment and their involvement in activities unrelated to class work via social media engagement (SME), while considering the moderating role of their openness to diversity and challenge (ODC) in explaining both variables. Another aim was to…

Wong, Lung-Hsiang; King, Ronnel B.; Chai, Ching Sing; Liu, May – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2016
Second language learners are typically hampered by the lack of a natural environment to use the target language for authentic communication purpose (as a means for "learning by applying"). Thus, we propose MyCLOUD, a mobile-assisted seamless language learning approach that aims to nurture a second language social network that bridges…

Yew, Elaine H. J.; Yong, Janice J. Y. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
In problem-based learning (PBL), the role of a tutor or facilitator is different from what is typically considered as the role of a traditional teacher. In addition to being a subject-matter expert, the facilitator is also expected to be "socially" and "cognitively congruent". In this study, we analyze the survey responses from…

Hong, Huang-Yao; Chang, Yu-Hui; Chai, Chin Sing – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
This study explored the effects of student engagement in a knowledge-building (KB) environment on their collaborative learning process and the perceived creative climate of that environment. The participants were 30 college students who undertook a living technology course in which KB were employed. The main data sources include students'…

Goeze, Annika; Zottmann, Jan M.; Vogel, Freydis; Fischer, Frank; Schrader, Josef – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
The ability to analyze and understand classroom situations through the eyes of not only teachers but also students can be seen as a crucial aspect of teachers' professional competence. Even though video case-based learning is considered to have great potential for the promotion of analytical competence of teachers (i.e., becoming immersed in…

Könings, Karen D.; Seidel, Tina; Brand-Gruwel, Saskia; Merriënboer, Jeroen J. G. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
Teachers and students have their own perceptions of education. Congruent perceptions contribute to optimal teaching-learning processes and help achieving best learning outcomes. This study investigated patterns in differences between students' and teachers' perceptions of their learning environment. Student profiles were identified taking into…

Ginns, Paul; Martin, Andrew J.; Papworth, Brad – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
Biggs' 3P (Presage-Process-Product) model, a key framework in Student Learning Theory, provides a powerful means of understanding relations between students' perceptions of the teaching and learning environment, learning strategies, and learning outcomes. While influential in higher education, fewer tests of the model in secondary education…

Rey, Gunter Daniel; Fischer, Andreas – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2013
The expertise reversal effect occurs when learner's expertise moderates design principles derived from cognitive load theory. Although this effect is supported by numerous empirical studies, indicating an overall large effect size, the effect was never tested by inducing expertise experimentally and using instructional explanations in a…

Olympiou, Georgios; Zacharias, Zacharia; deJong, Ton – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2013
This study aimed to identify if complementing representations of concrete objects with representations of abstract objects improves students' conceptual understanding as they use a simulation to experiment in the domain of "Light and Color". Moreover, we investigated whether students' prior knowledge is a factor that must be considered in deciding…

Westberry, Nicola; Franken, Margaret – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2013
Tertiary education has seen a shift toward pedagogies that make use of social interaction. As part of the shift, teachers have considered re-framing their role in the teaching process, and giving more attention to ways in which knowledge construction amongst students can be supported. While many online technologies are well positioned to support…

Malmberg, Jonna; Järvenoja, Hanna; Järvelä, Sanna – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2013
This study uses log file traces to examine differences between high-and low-achieving students' strategic actions in varying learning situations. In addition, this study illustrates, in detail, what strategic and self-regulated learning constitutes in practice. The study investigates the learning patterns that emerge in learning situations…

Lau, Kit-ling; Chen, Xiao-bo – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2013
Based on the theoretical framework of self-regulated learning (SRL), the study aimed to examine whether the proposed relationship between classroom environment and students' SRL was applicable in the case of Chinese readers. In this study, a questionnaire measuring students' perception of reading instruction, strategy use, and reading motivation…

Eilam, Billie – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2012
Considering well-documented difficulties in mastering ecology concepts and system thinking, the aim of the study was to examine 9th graders' understanding of the complex, multilevel, systemic construct of feeding relations, nested within a larger system of a live model. Fifty students interacted with the model and manipulated a variable within it…
