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.…

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…

Bressler, Denise M.; Bodzin, Alec M.; Tutwiler, Michael Shane – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Previous research using collaborative mobile augmented reality games in science education revealed that such games can be used to promote learner engagement and have found that engagement in such mobile games is related to flow. This study investigated whether player's flow experience differed by achievement track, gender, or gender composition of…

Nadeem, Nahla Helmy – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Student engagement is a multidimensional construct that includes four distinct, though interrelated, aspects: behavioral, emotional, agentive, and cognitive engagement. The present study investigates students' perceptions about the impact of Padlet as a learning and assessment tool on the four aspects of class engagement. Padlet is a virtual wall…
