van Weerdenburg, Marjolijn; Tesselhof, Mariëtte; van der Meijden, Henny – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study investigated the effect of a touch-typing course on the spelling and narrative-writing skills on the computer of elementary school students. Data of 207 students in Grades 4, 5, and 6 were analysed using a pretest-posttest design. Students in the experimental group (n = 154) followed a touch-typing course, and those in the control group…

Veerbeek, Jochanan; Vogelaar, Bart; Verhaegh, Janneke; Resing, Wilma C. M. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Task solving processes and changes in these processes have long been expected to provide valuable information about children's performance in school. This article used electronic tangibles (concrete materials that can be physically manipulated) and a dynamic testing format (pretest, training, and posttest) to investigate children's task solving…

Martín, Estefanía; Roldán-Alvarez, David; Haya, Pablo A.; Fernández-Gaullés, Cristina; Guzmán, Cristian; Quintanar, Hermelinda – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The adoption of Information and Communication Technologies in early childhood education is crucial for adapting traditional classrooms to the digital era. Over time, young children are increasingly using touch screen technologies such as tablets at home and in early childhood settings. However, the literature shows that there is a significant gap…

Han, Sunyoung; Yi, Yong Jeong – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The present study aims to investigate the effects of smartphone use by college students on their perceived academic performance. Using five hypotheses derived from the literature related to smartphone use, the initial model was set up for path analysis to reveal the relationships among variables regarding college students' smartphone use in the…

Gu, Xiaoqing; Cai, Huiying – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
A semantic diagram tool is proposed in this study in order to structure collaborative problem solving (CPS) based on cognitive load theory (CLT). To investigate its effects on transaction cost and the deepening of user understandings, a comparative quasi-experiment was designed and conducted with 49 participants from a university in East China.…

Hewson, Claire; Charlton, John P. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The use of e-assessment methods raises important concerns regarding the reliability and validity of these methods. Potential threats to validity include mode effects and the possible influence of computer-related attitudes. Although numerous studies have now investigated the validity of online assessments in noncourse-based contexts, few studies…

Wang, Hongyan; Pi, Zhongling; Hu, Weiping – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Instructor behaviour is known to affect learning performance, but it is unclear which specific instructor behaviours can optimize learning. We used eye-tracking technology and questionnaires to test whether the instructor's gaze guidance affected learners' visual attention, social presence, and learning performance, using four video lectures:…

Starkey, Louise; Zhong, Jingyi – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
How computers in schools impact on children's learning has been studied through research that explores student achievement at one point in time or by comparing different classroom contexts with differing results. The introduction of an optional netbook purchasing scheme for children in a low socio-economic community provided an opportunity to…

Maycock, Keith W. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The case study was carried out at a third-level college in Ireland to investigate the performance of a student population completing a first year computer architecture module using a flipped learning approach against a traditional chalk and talk approach. The study was completed over a 2-year period with the same lecturer delivering both…

Ghanaat Pisheh, Etrat AlZahra; NejatyJahromy, Yaser; Gargari, Rahim Badri; Hashemi, Touraj; Fathi-Azar, Eskandar – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The effect of the implementation of student response systems (SRSs) in teaching on the critical thinking (CT) of young students was investigated. The study benefited from a quasi-experimental design and a pretest/posttest set-up. Subjects consisted of 156 K-8 students in Tehran during 2016-2017, selected through a multistage cluster sampling, and…

García-Martínez, Carlos; Cerezo, Rebeca; Bermúdez, Manuel; Romero, Cristóbal – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Most massive open online courses (MOOC) use simple schemes for aggregating peer grades, taking the mean or the median, or compute weights from information other than the instructor's opinion about the students' knowledge. To reduce the difference between the instructor and students' aggregated scores, some proposals compute specific weights to…

Tsikinas, Stavros; Xinogalos, Stelios – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study examines the available literature on the effects of serious games on people with intellectual disabilities or autism spectrum disorder. The studies were categorized based on the limitations in skills that these people address. Fifty-four studies were selected, from different data sources. These studies address limitations in…

Rekik, Ghazi; Khacharem, Aïmen; Belkhir, Yosra; Bali, Naila; Jarraya, Mohamed – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Recent studies exploring the effects of dynamic visualizations on learning compared with static visualizations have yielded mixed results. Procedural motor learning is one of the few fields in which dynamic representations have shown to be effective. Many of the studies have suggested that this advantage is mainly due to the activation of the…

Ma, Long; Lee, Chei Sian – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
In spite of the potentials promised by MOOCs (massive open online courses), the adoption rate of MOOCs is still low, especially in developing countries. Research on the adoption of MOOCs in developing countries is also limited. To fill this research gap, this research aims to study the adoption of MOOCs by extending current research on innovation…

Liu, Ran; Stamper, John; Davenport, Jodi; Crossley, Scott; McNamara, Danielle; Nzinga, Kalonji; Sherin, Bruce – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Increasingly, student work is being conducted on computers and online, producing vast amounts of learning-related data. The educational analytics fields have produced many insights about learning based solely on tutoring systems' automatically logged data, or "log data." But log data leave out important contextual information about the…
