Hammond, M.; Reynolds, L.; Ingram, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2011
This paper examines how and why student teachers made use of information and communication technology (ICT) during a 1-year initial teacher education programme from 2008 to 2009. This is a mixed methods study involving a survey (N = 340) of the entire cohort and a series of semi-structured interviews with a sample of student teachers within the…

Sung, Y.-T.; Hou, H.-T.; Liu, C.-K.; Chang, K.-E. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2010
Mobile devices have been increasingly utilized in informal learning because of their high degree of portability; mobile guide systems (or electronic guidebooks) have also been adopted in museum learning, including those that combine learning strategies and the general audio-visual guide systems. To gain a deeper understanding of the features and…

Chen, F-H.; Looi, C.-K.; Chen, W. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2009
In this paper, we devise a diagrammatic conceptualization to describe and represent the complex interplay of a teacher's knowledge (K), goals (G) and beliefs (B) in leveraging technology effectively in the classroom. The degree of coherency between the KGB region and the affordances of the technology serves as an indicator of the teachers'…

Hilbert, T. S.; Renkl, A.; Schworm, S.; Kessler, S.; Reiss, K. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2008
Learning from worked-out examples has been shown to be very effective in initial cognitive skill acquisition. In order to fully exploit the potential of example-based learning, teachers should, however, know how to effectively employ such examples in classroom instruction. Therefore, we have designed a computer-based learning environment in which…

Gillen, J.; Littleton, K.; Twiner, A.; Staarman, J. K.; Mercer, N. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2008
All communication is inherently multimodal, and understandings of science need to be multidimensional. The interactive whiteboard offers a range of potential benefits to the primary science classroom in terms of relative ease of integration of a number of presentational and ICT functions, which, taken together, offers new opportunities for…

Zheng, R. Z.; Yang, W.; Garcia, D.; McCadden, E. P. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2008
The present study investigates the effects of multimedia and schema induced analogical reasoning on science learning. It involves 89 fourth grade elementary students in the north-east of the United States. Participants are randomly assigned into four conditions: (a) multimedia with analogy; (b) multimedia without analogy; (c) analogy without…

Tondeur, J.; Valcke, M.; van Braak, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2008
The central aim of this study was to test a model that integrates determinants of educational computer use. In particular, the article examines teacher and school characteristics that are associated with different types of computer use by primary school teachers. A survey was set up, involving 527 teachers from 68 primary schools in Flanders. A…

Zheng, R.; Perez, J.; Williamson, J.; Flygare, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2008
The WebQuest as an instructional tool has recently been widely adopted in K-16 education. However, its underlying principles and functionality are not well understood, which has resulted in an inconsistency in practice. This study identifies the underlying constructs of WebQuests as perceived by teachers and variables affecting their perceptions…

Ligorio, M. B.; Van der Meijden, H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2008
The purpose of this study is to provide guidelines for teachers to carry out cross-national educational projects in schools through the introduction of virtual environments as a means of reshaping classroom-based activities. The theoretical foundations of the study are rooted in computer supported collaborative learning and the community of…

Cope, P.; And Others – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 1992
Describes attempts to instruct 12 children, aged between 10 and 11, during a 12-hour course in LOGO that proper attention should be paid to the external angles through which the turtle rotated. Results suggest that using LOGO to draw closed figures may lead to confusions about angle that are not amenable to conventional intervention techniques…
