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…

Samur, Yavuz – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Learning letters is an important area of language learning, conducive to the beginning of reading and writing. Indeed, today's generation prefers to learn through digital games rather than through formal teaching processes. Inspired by this need, the researcher designed this study (a) to test the effectiveness of an instructional digital game,…

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…

Chadli, Abdelhafid; Tranvouez, Erwan; Dahmani, Youcef; Bendella, Fatima; Belmabrouk, Karima – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
This study proposes a computer-assisted system with a design based on Polya's problem-solving model. The system is designed to help average and low-achieving second graders in mathematics with word-based addition and subtraction questions. The emphasis of using the specific model was on dividing the problem-solving procedure into stages and the…

Boschman, F.; McKenney, S.; Pieters, J.; Voogt, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2016
This study investigated the role of content knowledge in conversations of kindergarten teachers during collaborative curriculum design of learning material for technology-enhanced learning. Two teams of teachers received support from an early literacy expert during these design activities. Resulting conversations were analyzed on technological…

Kao, C-P. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2016
This study examined whether self-directed learning readiness (SDLR) moderates the association between Internet self-efficacy and approaches to learning by web searching (ALWS). A total of 329 valid questionnaires were used for the correlation and path analysis. The results revealed that preschool teachers' SDLR significantly moderated the…

Liang, T.-H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Various studies have found that electronic books (e-books) promote learning, but few works have examined the use of e-books along with an adaptive reading strategy for children. The current study implemented a method to extract keyword cues from e-books to support e-book reading with the read, recite and review (3R) strategy, and then examined the…

Potocki, A.; Ecalle, J.; Magnan, A. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
The purpose of this study was to examine the differential impact of a computer-based comprehension training programme according to second graders' comprehender profiles. These profiles differed in the children's abilities to process three types of textual information: literal information, text-connecting inferences and gap-filling…

Juntunen, P.; Ruokonen, I.; Ruismäki, H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
For music students in the early stages of learning, the music may seem to be hidden behind the scores. To support home practising, Juntunen has created the "Playback Orchestra" method with which the students can practise with the support of the notation program playback of the full orchestra. The results of testing the method with…

Mo, D.; Zhang, L.; Wang, J.; Huang, W.; Shi, Y.; Boswell, M.; Rozelle, S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Computer assisted learning (CAL) programs have been shown to be effective in improving educational outcomes. However, the existing studies on CAL have almost all been conducted over a short period of time. There is very little evidence on how the impact evolves over time. In response, we conducted a clustered randomized experiment involving 2741…

Plowman, L.; Stevenson, O.; McPake, J.; Stephen, C.; Adey, C. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2011
Schemes that seek to ensure that children have access to technology at home have, so far, been aimed at children over the age of 8. However, there is likely to be an increasing policy interest in extending similar schemes to pre-school children given widespread commitment to the value of early intervention in children's education and family life.…

Korat, Ofra; Shamir, Adina – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2004
This replication study of Hebrew versus Dutch electronic books for young children was based on De Jong & Bus's content analysis, which explored whether e-books are appropriate supports for young children's literacy development. Our criteria for analysing 43 Hebrew e-books for young children included book processing, multimedia in pictures,…
