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…

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…

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…

Lodder, Josje; Heeren, Bastiaan; Jeuring, Johan – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This article describes an experiment with LogEx, an e-learning environment that supports students in learning how to prove the equivalence between two logical formulae, using standard equivalences such as DeMorgan. In the experiment, we compare two groups of students. The first group uses the complete learning environment, including hints, next…

Lin, Jian-Wei – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Team-based learning (TBL) stresses applying knowledge rather than absorbing knowledge in class; studies have investigated the use of TBL and its merits in different teaching courses (e.g., medical science and business). TBL is most effective when students learn autonomously before class. However, the ability of autonomous learning is highly…

Makransky, Guido; Borre-Gude, Stefan; Mayer, Richard E. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The main objective of this study was to examine the effectiveness of immersive virtual reality (VR) as a medium for delivering laboratory safety training. We specifically compare an immersive VR simulation, a desktop VR simulation, and a conventional safety manual. The sample included 105 first year undergraduate engineering students (56 females).…

Papadopoulos, Pantelis M.; Natsis, Antonis; Obwegeser, Nikolaus; Weinberger, Armin – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The aim of the present study (n = 113) was to examine how (objective and subjective) information on peers' preparation, confidence, and past performance can support students in answering correctly in audience response systems (aka clickers). The result analysis shows that in the "challenging" questions, in which answers diverged,…

Wu, Bian; Hu, Yiling; Ruis, A. R.; Wang, Minhong – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Computational thinking (CT), the ability to devise computational solutions for real-life problems, has received growing attention from both educators and researchers. To better improve university students' CT competence, collaborative programming is regarded as an effective learning approach. However, how novice programmers develop CT competence…

Erbas, Cagdas; Demirer, Veysel – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study aimed to investigate the effects of augmented reality (AR) activities on students' academic achievement and motivation in a biology course. For this purpose, a mixed study was conducted, and a pretest and posttest control group model was used. In addition, the opinions of the experimental group students and the teacher about the AR…

Tokac, Umit; Novak, Elena; Thompson, Christopher G. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This meta-analysis investigated the effects of learning video games on mathematics achievement of PreK-12th-grade students compared with traditional classroom instructional methods. Results from the 24 collected studies showed heterogeneity among effect sizes, both in magnitude and direction. Using a random effects model, a small but marginally…

Kim, Byoung Gwan; Shim, Hye Rin – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
This study investigated the optimal conditions under which foreign language learning takes place using a smartphone. The authors proposed that two factors, chunking and imagery, would increase language learning. On the basis of previous findings, they formulated three hypotheses: (a) the use of images will have a positive effect on learning…
