Paans, Cindy; Segers, Eliane; Molenaar, Inge; Verhoeven, Ludo – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
In the present study, we investigated whether online learning behaviours (navigation and writing activities) mediated the relation between learner characteristics (prior knowledge, vocabulary knowledge, working memory, and motivation) and declarative knowledge. Specifically, we investigated whether the quality of participants' written assignments…

Cornelisz, Ilja; Klaveren, Chris – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
A prerequisite for low-stakes activities to improve learning is to keep students engaged when confronted with challenging material. Comparing a personalized and non-personalized version of computerized practising, this study experimentally evaluates the relationships between student effort and ability across different dimensions of task…

Fleming, Raymond; Kienzler, Sarah; Stoiber, Leah; Fleming, Ryan R.; Pedrick, Laura E.; Reddy, Diane M. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Less than optimal student success in gateway courses figures prominently in college noncompletion. Past findings suggest that "U-Pace" instruction holds promise for increasing student success. However, all published studies of "U-Pace" instruction were conducted in the gateway course context of introductory psychology. The…

Reichert, Michael; Mouza, Chrystalla – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
This study examines the ways in which all nine middle school teachers in a private school for boys in the United States integrated mobile devices with content and pedagogy 4 years into the implementation of a one-to-one initiative. It also examines teacher perceptions of the benefits and challenges related to the implementation of mobile devices…

Zhai, Xuesong; Fang, Qiansheng; Dong, Yan; Wei, Zhihui; Yuan, Jing; Cacciolatti, Luca; Yang, Yalong – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Previous studies posited the effectiveness of stimulated recall. However, few studies explored how SR is implemented in a relatively static context, for example, online self-directed learning, or took human factors, for example, cognitive style and gender, into consideration in such a context. To fill this gap, the current study, aims to introduce…

Sebastian, Katharina; Ghose, Tandra; Huff, Markus – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Humans segment naturalistic actions into meaningful units. These are hierarchically organized: multiple fine events are part of a coarse event. We investigated how repeated practice of a virtual sequential assembly task influences learning of coarse and fine assembly steps. In Experiment 1, participants (N = 10) parsed the task into coarse and…

Riehemann, J.; Jucks, R. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
If learning materials are presented in either a conversational or formal language style, people will process them differently. This study reports an experiment in which 64 high school students watched an educational video in a massive open online course scenario in which the instructions were phrased either conversationally or formally. The video…

Winter, J. W. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Flipped learning is a pedagogical approach that uses technology to deliver instructional content outside of class (individual space) and class time to engage in collaborative activities (group space). In a flipped learning course, the traditional classroom paradigm shifts and teachers become more facilitator than lecturer. Research on flipped…

Hooshyar, Danial; Yousefi, M.; Wang, M.; Lim, H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Although game-based learning has been increasingly promoted in education, there is a need to adapt game content to individual needs for personalized learning. Procedural content generation (PCG) offers a solution for difficulty in developing game contents automatically by algorithmic means as it can generate individually customizable game contents…

Yildiz Durak, Hatice – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
The aim of this research is to determine the effects and experiences of the use of digital story design activities in teaching applications of programming on academic achievement, participation, and programming self-efficacy. In the study, which is designed through the mixed method, quasi-experimental design is used in the quantitative dimension.…

Maycock, K. W.; Lambert, J.; Bane, D. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
This action research study follows a between-subject design strategy and attempts to identify whether a departure from a direct instructional teaching strategy towards a flipped learning pedagogy results in increases in student performance over time. In particular, the study considers the effects of integrating flipped learning pedagogic…

Impedovo, M. A.; Ligorio, M. B.; McLay, K. F. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
This research investigates how a role called "friend of zone of proximal development" (ZPD), assigned to one student in a peer partnership, supports the transition from university to professional life. Two near-identical blended courses are compared. In Course 1 (6 F, 3 M), the friend of ZPD role was introduced into the ePortfolio…

Mize, Min Kyung; Park, Yujeong; Moore, Tara – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
The purpose of this study was to synthesize the effectiveness of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) studies aiming to increase vocabulary for students with disabilities in an effort to identify what type of CAI is promising for practice. An extensive search process with inclusion and exclusion criteria yielded a total of 13 single-subject design…

Lee, K. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Integrating computer-mediated intercultural communication (CMIC) activities into language curricula has been discussed as an innovative approach. Despite the increasing number of successful examples reporting positive outcomes of adopting CMIC activities in language-learning environments, it has also been noted that there are significant…

Frerejean, J.; van Strien, J. L. H.; Kirschner, P. A.; Brand-Gruwel, S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Although students often appear to be skilled in retrieving and making use of information from the internet, research shows that their information problem solving skills are overestimated. They show deficiencies in many of the necessary skills, such as generation of search terms, selection of sources, and critical processing of information. It is…
