Hsu, P.-S.; Van Dyke, M.; Chen, Y.; Smith, T. J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2016
The purpose of this mixed-methods study was to explore how seventh graders in a suburban school in the United States and sixth graders in an urban school in Taiwan developed argumentation skills and science knowledge in a project-based learning environment that incorporated a graph-oriented, computer-assisted application (GOCAA). A total of 42…

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…

Johnson, A. M.; Ozogul, G.; Reisslein, M. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
An experiment examined the effects of visual signalling to relevant information in multiple external representations and the visual presence of an animated pedagogical agent (APA). Students learned electric circuit analysis using a computer-based learning environment that included Cartesian graphs, equations and electric circuit diagrams. The…

van der Meij, J.; van der Meij, H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
The effectiveness of a video tutorial versus a paper-based tutorial for software training has yet to be established. Mixed outcomes from the empirical studies to date suggest that for a video tutorial to outperform its paper-based counterpart, the former should be crafted so that it addresses the strengths of both designs. This was attempted in…

Dindar, M.; Kabakçi Yurdakul, I.; Inan Dönmez, F. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
The majority of multimedia learning studies focus on the use of graphics in learning process but very few of them examine the role of graphics in testing students' knowledge. This study investigates the use of static graphics versus animated graphics in a computer-based English achievement test from a cognitive load theory perspective. Three…

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…

Chen, Y-H.; Jang, S-J.; Chen, P-J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Wiki bears great potential to transform learning and instruction by scaffolding personal and social constructivism. Past studies have shown that proper application of wiki benefits both students and teachers; however, few studies have integrated wiki and collaborative learning to examine the growth of science teachers' "Technological,…

Wang, Y.-H.; Young, S. S.-C. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
This paper presents a study on implementing the ASR-based CALL (computer-assisted language learning based upon automatic speech recognition) system embedded with both formative and summative feedback approaches and using implicit and explicit strategies to enhance adult and young learners' English pronunciation. Two groups of learners including 18…

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…

Gunbas, N. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of a computer-based story, which was designed in anchored instruction framework, on sixth-grade students' mathematics word problem-solving achievement. Problems were embedded in a story presented on a computer as computer story, and then compared with the paper-based version of the same story…

Hatlevik, O. E.; Ottestad, G.; Throndsen, I. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Since 2006, the ability to use information and communication technology (ICT) has been included as a key competence in the curriculum in Norway, and specific competence aims are developed for most grades. The aim of this study was to identify students' ability to use ICT according to the competence aims, and to examine factors that can predict…

Bernicot, J.; Goumi, A.; Bert-Erboul, A.; Volckaert-Legrier, O. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2014
The link between students' spelling level and their text-messaging practice gives rise to numerous questions from teachers, parents and the media. A corpus of 4524 text messages produced in daily-life situations by students in sixth and seventh grade (n?=?19, 11-12 years of age) was compiled. None of the participants had ever owned or used a…

Jia, J.; Chen, Y.; Ding, Z.; Bai, Y.; Yang, B.; Li, M.; Qi, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2013
This research conducted quasi-experiments in four middle schools to evaluate the long-term effects of an intelligent web-based English instruction system, Computer Simulation in Educational Communication (CSIEC), on students' academic attainment. The analysis of regular examination scores and vocabulary test validates the positive impact of CSIEC,…

Lin, C.-P.; Wong, L.-H.; Shao, Y.-J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2012
This paper reports an investigation into the effects of collaborative concept mapping in a digital learning environment, in terms of students' overall learning gains, knowledge retention, quality of student artefacts (the collaboratively created concept maps), interactive patterns, and learning perceptions. Sixty-four 12-year-old students from two…
