Shadiev, R.; Hwang, W.-Y.; Huang, Y.-M.; Liu, T.-Y. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
We uncovered two critical issues in earlier studies: (a) some studies have shown that mobile learning technology is not beneficial for all students due to complexity of learning environments and student prior knowledge, skills, and experience and (b) familiarity of students with the authentic environments in which they learn using mobile…

Reichert, Michael; Mouza, Chrystalla – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
This study examines the ways in which all nine middle school teachers in a private school for boys in the United States integrated mobile devices with content and pedagogy 4 years into the implementation of a one-to-one initiative. It also examines teacher perceptions of the benefits and challenges related to the implementation of mobile devices…

Winter, J. W. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Flipped learning is a pedagogical approach that uses technology to deliver instructional content outside of class (individual space) and class time to engage in collaborative activities (group space). In a flipped learning course, the traditional classroom paradigm shifts and teachers become more facilitator than lecturer. Research on flipped…

Baker, R. S.; Clarke-Midura, J.; Ocumpaugh, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2016
Recent interest in online assessment of scientific inquiry has led to several new online systems that attempt to assess these skills, but producing models that detect when students are successfully practising these skills can be challenging. In this paper, we study models that assess student inquiry in an immersive virtual environment, where a…

Miller, B. W.; Cromley, J. G.; Newcombe, N. S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2016
Visual representations are essential for science understanding, but many students have poor diagrammatic reasoning skills. Previous research showed that teaching high school and college students about the conventions of diagrams (COD) can improve diagrammatic reasoning. In this study, middle school science students received COD instruction…
