Jong, Ton – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
What is the best approach to educating students is, evidently, the pivotal question in educational research. In the general debate on this question, clear positions are often taken--for example, whether teacher-led instruction or more student-directed approaches should be followed. In the current narrative review, this central question and the…

Junokas, M. J.; Lindgren, R.; Kang, J.; Morphew, J. W. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Gestural recognition systems are important tools for leveraging movement-based interactions in multimodal learning environments but personalizing these interactions has proven difficult. We offer an adaptable model that uses multimodal analytics, enabling students to define their physical interactions with computer-assisted learning environments.…

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…

Kirschner, P. A.; Kreijns, K.; Phielix, C.; Fransen, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Most distributed and virtual online environments for and pedagogies of computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) neglect the social and social-emotional aspects underlying the group dynamics of learning and working in a CSCL group. These group dynamics often determine whether the group will develop into a well-performing team and whether a…

Taminiau, E. M. C.; Kester, L.; Corbalan, G.; Spector, J. M.; Kirschner, P. A.; Van Merriënboer, J. J. G. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
On-demand education enables individual learners to choose their learning pathways according to their own learning needs. They must use self-directed learning (SDL) skills involving self-assessment and task selection to determine appropriate pathways for learning. Learners who lack these skills must develop them because SDL skills are prerequisite…

Yuan, J.; Kim, C. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2014
Online learning has grown exponentially in recent years; however, dropout problem remains challenging for some online programmes. The dropout problem can be attributed to a number of reasons, with a lack of interaction between learners and the instructor constituting one of the main reasons. The lack of interaction also leads to learners'…

Clarà, M.; Barberà, E. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2014
Connectivism, which has been argued to be a new learning theory, has emerged in the field of online learning during the last decade. On the World Wide Web at least, connectivism promises to establish learning spaces similar to those that Ivan Illich imagined in "Deschooling Society", through so-called massive online open courses (MOOCs).…

Rajendran, G. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2013
Individuals with autism spectrum disorders supposedly have an affinity with information and communication technology (ICT), making it an ideally suited media for this population. Virtual environments (VEs)--both two-dimensional and immersive--represent a particular kind of ICT that might be of special benefit. Specifically, this paper discusses…

Voogt, J.; Fisser, P.; Roblin, N. Pareja; Tondeur, J.; van Braak, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2013
Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) has been introduced as a conceptual framework for the knowledge base teachers need to effectively teach with technology. The framework stems from the notion that technology integration in a specific educational context benefits from a careful alignment of content, pedagogy and the potential of…

Voogt, J.; Knezek, G.; Cox, M.; Knezek, D.; ten Brummelhuis, A. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2013
"Under which conditions does ICT have a positive effect on teaching and learning?" This was the leading question of the International EDUsummIT in The Hague, the Netherlands. The bases for the discussion were the scholarly findings of the International Handbook of Information Technology in Primary and Secondary Education, a synthesis of research…

Manca, S.; Ranieri, M. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2013
Despite its continuing popularity as the social network site par excellence, the educational value of Facebook has not been fully determined, and results from the mainstream educational paradigms are contradictory, with some scholars emphasizing its pedagogical affordances (e.g., widening context of learning, mixing information and learning…

Häkkinen, P. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2013
Several studies have analysed and assessed online performance and discourse using quantitative and qualitative methods. Quantitative measures have typically included the analysis of participation rates and learning outcomes in terms of grades. Qualitative measures of postings, discussions and context features aim to give insights into the nature…
