Garcia, Consuelo; Badia, Antoni – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
This study investigated the frequency of use of information problem-solving (IPS) skills and its relationship with learning outcomes. During the course of the study, 40 teachers carried out a collaborative IPS task in small virtual groups in a 4-week online training course. The status of IPS skills was collected through self-reports handed in over…

Sobocan, M.; Klemenc-Ketis, Z. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
An increasing number of virtual patients (VPs) are being used in the classroom, which raises questions about how to implement VPs to improve students' satisfaction and enhance their learning. This study developed and validated a scale that measures acceptability and attitudes of medical students towards the use of the VP education tool in the…

Swinnerton, B.; Hotchkiss, S.; Morris, N. P. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
This paper investigates the characteristics and behaviour of learners on nine Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on the FutureLearn platform in 2014 and 2015. FutureLearn's social constructivist approach, which emphasizes learning through social interaction, makes the focus on forum posting within these MOOCs particularly appropriate. This study…

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…

Van Laere, E.; Braak, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
Text-to-speech technology can act as an important support tool in computer-based learning environments (CBLEs) as it provides auditory input, next to on-screen text. Particularly for students who use a language at home other than the language of instruction (LOI) applied at school, text-to-speech can be useful. The CBLE E-Validiv offers content in…

Wang, Y.-H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
Previous studies on the interactive response system (IRS) have generally adopted the lecture method to facilitate teaching and learning, while few have made efforts to investigate the learning effects of instructional methods and IRS activities on learning and teaching. The purpose of the present study was therefore to explore whether the use of…

Ariasi, N.; Hyönä, J.; Kaakinen, J. K.; Mason, L. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
In this study, we used eye-tracking methodology for deeper understanding of the refutation text effect on online text comprehension. A refutation text acknowledges the reader's alternative conceptions about a phenomenon, refutes them and presents the correct conceptions. We tested two hypotheses about its facilitation effect: the coherence…

Salmerón, L.; Naumann, J.; García, V.; Fajardo, I. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
When students solve problems on the Internet, they have to find a balance between quickly scanning large sections of information in web pages and deeply processing those that are relevant for the task. We studied how high school students articulate scanning and deeper processing of information while answering questions using a Wikipedia document,…

Brand-Gruwel, S.; Kammerer, Y.; van Meeuwen, L.; van Gog, T. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
Nowadays, almost everyone uses the World Wide Web (WWW) to search for information of any kind. In education, students frequently use the WWW for selecting information to accomplish assignments such as writing an essay or preparing a presentation. The evaluation of sources and information is an important sub-skill in this process. But many students…

Hung, Y.-H.; Chen, C.-H.; Huang, S.-W. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
The objective of this study was to determine the usefulness of augmented reality (AR) in teaching. An experiment was conducted to examine children's learning performances, which included the number of errors they made, their ability to remember the content of what they had read and their satisfaction with the three types of teaching materials,…

Montrieux, H.; Raes, A.; Schellens, T. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
A quasi-experimental study was set up in secondary education to study the role of teachers while implementing tablet devices in science education. Three different classroom scripts that guided students and teachers' actions during the intervention on two social planes (group and classroom level) are compared. The main goal was to investigate which…

Vössing, J.; Stamov-Roßnagel, C.; Heinitz, K. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
Metacomprehension as reflected in judgements of one's learning is crucial for self-regulated study, yet their accuracy is often low. We investigated text difficulty as a constraint on metacomprehension accuracy in text learning. A total of 235 participants studied a 10-section expository text and afterwards took a knowledge test. They made…

Truskowski, S.; VanderMolen, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
This study sought to explore the effectiveness of annotated video technology for providing feedback to occupational therapy students learning transfers, range of motion and manual muscle testing. Fifty-seven first-year occupational therapy students were split into two groups. One received annotated video feedback during a transfer lab and…

Jo, I.; Park, Y.; Lee, H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
An asynchronous online discussion (AOD) is one format of instructional methods that facilitate student-centered learning. In the wealth of AOD research, this study evaluated how students' behavior on AOD influences their academic outcomes. This case study compared the differential analytic methods including web log mining, social network analysis…
