Xiang, X.; Liu, Y. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
Understanding geographic changes has become an indispensable element in geography education. Describing and analyzing changes in space require spatial thinking skills emphasized in geography curriculum but often pose challenges for secondary school students. This school-based research targets a specific strand of spatial thinking skills and…

Sha, L.; Looi, C.-K.; Chen, W.; Zhang, B. H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2012
Cognizant of the research gap in the theorization of mobile learning, this paper conceptually explores how the theories and methodology of self-regulated learning (SRL), an active area in contemporary educational psychology, are inherently suited to address the issues originating from the defining characteristics of mobile learning: enabling…

Klopfer, E.; Sheldon, J.; Perry, J.; Chen, V. H. -H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2012
This paper provides a rationale for a class of mobile, casual, and educational games, which we call UbiqGames. The study is motivated by the desire to understand how students use educational games in light of additional distractions on their devices, and how game design can make those games appealing, educationally useful, and practical. In…

Koh, J. H. L.; Chai, C. S.; Tsai, C. C. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2010
This paper examined the profile of Singaporean pre-service teachers in terms of their technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK). A total of 1185 pre-service teachers were studied with a TPACK survey. An exploratory factor analysis found five distinctive constructs: technological knowledge, content knowledge, knowledge of pedagogy,…

Looi, C. -K.; Lim, K. -S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2009
In the Singapore primary school Mathematics curriculum, students are taught the model method that uses bar diagrams to visualize the problem structure in a given word problem. When these students progress to secondary school, they learn the algebraic way of solving word problems. Studies (e.g. Ng et al.) have shown that poor bridging of students…
