Edwards, Maeghan N.; Higley, Kelli; Zeruth, Jill A.; Murphy, P. Karen – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2007
Teachers routinely make decisions regarding the best pedagogical methods for altering students' understandings about academic content. Such practices are at the root of teaching as persuasion, and have been shown to be related to academic achievement. Yet very little research has investigated the extent to which individuals learning to be teachers…

Kim, Beaumie; Reeves, Thomas C. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2007
Previous research and development with cognitive tools has been limited by an inadequate conceptualization of the complexity underlying their nature and affordances for supporting learning and performance. This paper provides a new perspective on cognitive tools through the lens of the theories of distributed cognition and expertise. The learner,…

Beers, Pieter J.; Kirschner, Paul A.; Boshuizen, Henny P. A.; Gijselaers, Wim H. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2007
More and more educators and researchers use ICT-tools to support collaborative learning. Research has shown that, for collaborative learning to be more effective than individual learning, individual learners have to achieve a sufficiently common cognitive frame of reference, or common ground. This common ground does not appear by itself, but…

De Laat, Maarten; Lally, Vic; Lipponen, Lasse; Simons, Robert-Jan – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2007
The aim of this paper is to study the online teaching styles of two teachers who each tutor a networked learning community (NLC), within the same workshop. The study is undertaking empirical work using a multi-method approach in order to triangulate and contextualise our findings and enrich our understanding of the teacher participation in these…

Tse, Shek Kam; Marton, Ference; Ki, Wing Wah; Ka Yee Loh, Elizabeth – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2007
This paper is concerned with an innovative approach to teaching Chinese characters. Traditionally, pupils learn Chinese characters by repeatedly copying them until they can reproduce their form and pronunciation from memory. Most of the characters pupils are required to learn are selected on the basis of their frequency in adult written…

Rohrer, Doug; Taylor, Kelli – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2007
In most mathematics textbooks, each set of practice problems is comprised almost entirely of problems corresponding to the immediately previous lesson. By contrast, in a small number of textbooks, the practice problems are systematically shuffled so that each practice set includes a variety of problems drawn from many previous lessons. The…
