Blik, H.; Harskamp, E.G.; van Leeuwen, S.; Hoekstra, R. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
Intellectually disabled (ID) students in secondary education are often taught in an individual setting where video instruction is used. Especially, when the instruction is about complex assignments, many students may forget parts of it. In this study, we tried to find out if prompting ID students to explain video instruction would help them to…

De Witte, K.; Haelermans, C.; Rogge, N. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Computer-assisted instruction (CAI) programs are considered as a way to improve learning outcomes of students. However, little is known on the schools who implement such programs as well as on the effectiveness of similar information and communication technology programs. We provide a literature review that pays special attention to the existing…

van den Beemt, A.; Akkerman, S.; Simons, P. R. J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2011
The intensive use of interactive media has led to assertions about the effect of these media on youth. Rather than following the assumption of a distinct Net generation, this study investigates diversity in interactive media use among youth. Results from a pilot study show that contemporary youth can be divided into clusters based on the use of…
