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…

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…

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…

Voogt, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2010
Second Information Technology in Education Study (SITES) 2006 was an international study about pedagogical practices and the use of information and communication technology (ICT) in math and science classrooms. One of the findings of SITES 2006 was that--across educational systems--a proportion of the math and science teachers in the 22 countries…

Nachmias, R.; Mioduser, D.; Forkosh-Baruch, A. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2010
Closing educational gaps between sub-populations in Israel, particularly between students in Hebrew-speaking and Arabic-speaking schools, persists to be one of the priorities of Israel's education system. In the field of information and communication technology (ICT), this goal refers to infrastructure as well as practice, i.e. teaching and…

Yuan, Y.; Lee, C. -Y.; Wang, C. -H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2010
This study develops virtual manipulative, polyominoes kits for junior high school students to explore polyominoes. The current work conducts a non-equivalent group pretest-post-test quasi-experimental design to compare the performance difference between using physical manipulatives and virtual manipulatives in finding the number of polyominoes.…

Mercier, E. M.; Barron, B.; O'Connor, K. M. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2006
Gender differences in the pursuit of technology careers are a current issue of concern. We report on two studies that use surveys, drawings and interviews to examine sixth- and eighth-grade students' perceptions of knowledgeable computer users and their self-perception as a computer-type person. In Study 1, participants were asked to generate…

Zhang, Jianwei; Chen, Qi; Sun, Yanquing; Reid, David J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2004
Learning support studies involving simulation-based scientific discovery learning have tended to adopt an ad hoc strategies-oriented approach in which the support strategies are typically pre-specified according to learners' difficulties in particular activities. This article proposes a more integrated approach, a triple scheme for learning…
