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…

Erbas, Cagdas; Demirer, Veysel – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study aimed to investigate the effects of augmented reality (AR) activities on students' academic achievement and motivation in a biology course. For this purpose, a mixed study was conducted, and a pretest and posttest control group model was used. In addition, the opinions of the experimental group students and the teacher about the AR…

Makransky, Guido; Wismer, Philip; Mayer, Richard E. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The main objective of this study is to determine whether boys and girls learn better when the characteristics of the pedagogical agent are matched to the gender of the learner while learning in immersive virtual reality (VR). Sixty-six middle school students (33 females) were randomly assigned to learn about laboratory safety with one of two…

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…

Hsu, P. -S.; Van Dyke, M.; Chen, Y.; Smith, T. J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
The purpose of this quasi-experimental study was to explore how seventh graders in a suburban school in the United States developed argumentation skills and science knowledge in a project-based learning environment that incorporated a graph-oriented, computer-assisted application. A total of 54 students (three classes) comprised this treatment…

Chen, C.-H.; Chou, M.-H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Facing students' decreasing motivation to pursue scientific study, schools and educators need to coordinate new technologies with pedagogical agents to effectively sustain or promote students' scientific learning and motivation to learn. Although the provision of pedagogical agents in student learning has been studied previously, it is not clear…
