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…

Scanlon, E.; Anastopoulou, S.; Kerawalla, L.; Mulholland, P. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2011
The Personal Inquiry project is an investigation into the role that technologies can play in enabling effective inquiry. While it is generally agreed that inquiry-based learning has potential for student learning, especially in science, three main challenges remain. The first is to provide effective support for inquiry learning, for both students…

Hennessy, S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2011
This paper explores how the interactive whiteboard (IWB) might be harnessed to support student learning through classroom dialogue. This powerful and increasingly prevalent technology opens up opportunities for learners to generate, modify, and evaluate new ideas, through multimodal interaction along with talk. Its use can thereby support rich new…
