Seals, Christopher; Mehta, Swati; Wolf, Leigh Graves; Marcotte, Candace – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
U.S. teachers have less time to plan, collaborate, and research related work in comparison to teachers in competing countries (NECTL) and time is needed for teachers to learn new skills, understand new concepts, and to integrate new ideas into their practice (Corcoran, 1995). The MSUrbanSTEM Teaching and Leadership Fellowship program is a…

Hechter, Richard; Vermette, Laurie Anne – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2014
This paper examines the technology integration practices of Manitoban K-12 inservice science educators based on the Technological, Pedagogical, and Content knowledge (TPACK) framework. Science teachers (n = 433) completed a 10-item online survey regarding pedagogical beliefs about technology integration, types of technology used, and how often…

Flores, Raymond; Inan, Fethi; Lin, Zhangxi – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013
In this study, the National Educational Longitudinal Study (ELS:2002) dataset was used and a predictive data mining technique, decision tree analysis, was implemented in order to examine which factors, in conjunction to computer use, can be used to predict high or low probability of success in high school mathematics. Specifically, this study…

Edwards, Clayton M.; Rule, Audrey C.; Boody, Robert M. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013
Online education is increasing in popularity at the college and high school levels with several studies showing the comparability of e-learning and more traditional methods. Middle school students' ability to function well with this mode of instruction has not been established in the literature, although the circumstances of Generation Z growing…

Edwards, Clayton; Rule, Audrey – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013
Education in an online setting is an increasingly popular method of instruction. Previous studies comparing college or high school student performance in online and face-to-face courses found, in most cases, similar achievement between conditions. However, research is lacking regarding middle school students' academic performance and attitudes…

Mitchell, Rebecca – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2011
This paper reports on findings from a five-teacher, exploratory case study, critically observing their implementation of a technology-intensive, augmented reality (AR) mathematics curriculum unit, along with its paper-based control. The unit itself was intended to promote multiple proportional-reasoning strategies with urban, public, middle school…

Groth, Randall; Burgess, Claudia – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009
The purpose of the present study was to examine the nature of the discourse generated by two different online approaches to mathematics teacher professional development. Thirty mathematics teachers participated in online activities involving analysis and discourse about artifacts of teaching practice. Half were randomly assigned to a group that…

Cantrell, Pamela; Sudweeks, Richard – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009
This project investigated the effects of technology task autonomy, teacher gender, and student gender on student achievement scores for students disaggregated by IEP and SES in middle school science classrooms. Participants were from the treatment group in a larger quasi-experimental design project that investigated the effects of integrated…

Lin, Janet Mei-Chuen; Yang, Mei-Ching – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009
In this study half of 52 sixth graders learned to program in MSWLogo and the other half in Drape. An analysis of students' test scores revealed that Drape (an iconic language) seemed to have a steeper learning curve than MSWLogo (a textual language). However, as students gradually became more familiar with either language, the difference in…

Urban-Woldron, Hildegard – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009
Appropriate educational technologies have the potential to make physics' concepts more accessible through visualization, modeling and multiple representations. Students are engaged in more powerful scientific activities and they are able to perform investigations that would not be possible without the use of technology. This paper presents…
