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…

Yang, Der-Ching; Sianturi, Iwan Andi J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
When solving a mathematical problem, students who do not have sufficient conceptual understanding may perform poorly and exhibit misconceptions. This study was aimed to examine students' conceptual understanding and significant misconceptions when solving number sense-related problems. An online three-tier diagnostic test was administered to 125…

Rodríguez-Aflecht, G.; Jaakkola, T.; Pongsakdi, N.; Hannula-Sormunen, M.; Brezovszky, B.; Lehtinen, E. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
The present study focused on 212 fifth graders' situational interest trajectories during an intervention with a digital mathematics game called Number Navigation. Our aims were to explore the development of situational interest whilst playing the game and to investigate the relationship between situational interest and individual math interest.…

Lin, Feng; Chan, Carol K. K. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
This study characterized students' online collaborative discourse from a theory-building perspective and examined its relation to epistemic and conceptual understanding. Fifty-two fifth graders' Knowledge Forum discussions on electricity were analysed. Discourse moves were coded within the inquiry threads, and two key epistemic patterns were…

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…

Van Laere, E.; Braak, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
Text-to-speech technology can act as an important support tool in computer-based learning environments (CBLEs) as it provides auditory input, next to on-screen text. Particularly for students who use a language at home other than the language of instruction (LOI) applied at school, text-to-speech can be useful. The CBLE E-Validiv offers content in…

Hung, Y.-H.; Chen, C.-H.; Huang, S.-W. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
The objective of this study was to determine the usefulness of augmented reality (AR) in teaching. An experiment was conducted to examine children's learning performances, which included the number of errors they made, their ability to remember the content of what they had read and their satisfaction with the three types of teaching materials,…

Denham, A. R. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
There has been a steady rise in the support for games as learning environments. This support is largely based on the strong levels of engagement and motivation observed during gameplay. What has proven difficult is the ability to consistently design and develop learning games that are both engaging and educationally viable. Those in the game-based…

Tanimoto, S.; Thompson, R.; Berninger, V. W.; Nagy, W.; Abbott, R. D. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Computer scientists and educational researchers evaluated effectiveness of computerized instruction tailored to evidence-based impairments in specific learning disabilities (SLDs) in students in grades 4-9 with persisting SLDs despite prior extra help. Following comprehensive, evidence-based differential diagnosis for dysgraphia (impaired…

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…

Jaakkola, T.; Veermans, K. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Contemporary evidence on the effectiveness of concrete and abstract representations in science education is based solely on studies conducted in college context. There it has been found that learning with abstract representations produces predominantly better outcomes than learning with concrete representations and combining the representations…

Hsiao, H-S.; Chang, C-S.; Lin, C-Y.; Hu, P-M. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2014
In this study, we developed a digital game-based learning (DGBL) system, called the ToES, to foster students' creativity. Fifty-one fifth-grade students from two classes in a public school in Taipei, Taiwan, were recruited and consented to participate. Both classes consisted of students with mixed abilities studying a foundation unit entitled…

Lai, Chih-Hung; Yang, J.-C.; Chen, F.-C.; Ho, C.-W.; Chan, T.-W. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2007
Experiential learning is the process of creating knowledge through the transformation of experience and has been adopted in an increasing number of areas. This paper investigates the possibility of technological support for experiential learning. A learning activity flow (or script) and a mobile technology system were designed to facilitate…

Chiu, C.-H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2004
This study examined the influence of various conflict management mechanisms embedded into computer-supported collaborative concept mapping systems on the behaviour and learning of elementary students. Four conflict management mechanisms were compared: an assign design, in which the mapping control was designated to a particular group member; a…
