Klopfer, Eric; Yoon, Susan; Um, Tricia – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2005
In this paper, we report on a program of study called Adventures in Modeling that challenges the traditional scientific method approach in science classrooms using StarLogo modeling software. Drawing upon previous successful efforts with older students, and the related work of other projects working with younger students, we explore: (a) What can…

Stroup, Walter M. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2005
A critical issue related to the use of simulation environments in school-based learning is the relationship between the use of these environments and the structure of traditional curricula. Teachers are often caught in the bind of attempting to address significantly raised standards for what all students should know, yet receiving very little…

Rowhani, Sonja; Sedig, Kamran – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2005
E-books promise to become a widespread delivery mechanism for educational resources. However, current e-books do not take full advantage of the power of computing tools. In particular, interaction with the content is often reduced to navigation through the information. This article investigates how adding interactive visuals to an e-book…

Chua, Boon-Liang; Wu, Yingkang – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2005
To integrate technology into mathematics teaching and learning effectively, teachers could create a technology-based learning environment that provides students with opportunities to experience the process of mathematical investigation. These opportunities range from exploring using mathematical ideas to making and testing conjectures, as well as…

Embi, Zarina Che; Hussain, Hanafizan – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2005
In the world of "edutainment" where multimedia is the ultimate content provider, educational electronic games are a new and fun way for young children to learn concepts and processes that have usually been delivered via books within the traditional classroom. In an effort to implement a design framework for developing educational games…

Rivet, Ann; Schneider, Rebecca – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2004
Digital photography has the potential to support student inquiry in real-world settings. However, specific ideas for the most effective use of digital photography to benefit students during inquiry, as well as the evidence indicating that this is possible, have not yet been established. Forty-one seventh-grade students used digital cameras and…

Santos-Trigo, Manuel – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2004
What features of mathematical thinking do students exhibit when they use dynamic software in their problem solving approaches? To what extent does the systematic use of technology favour students' development of problem solving competences? What type of reasoning do students develop as a result of using a particular tool? This study documents…

Kolikant, Yifat Ben-David – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2004
Computer Science formal education brings together old-timers from two computer-literate cultures. The curriculum is oriented toward the academic community, whose interest is in the abstraction, solution, and proofs of algorithmic problems, whereas many students are technology users, whose main interest is the manipulation of the products of…

Coffland, David A.; Strickland, Albert W. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2004
This survey sought to identify variables related to teacher use of technology in secondary level geometry classrooms in southeastern Idaho. The primary variables examined in the study were teacher technology awareness, teacher attitude toward technology, teacher technology training, and teacher computer use for instruction. This study also tested…

Luehrmann, Arthur – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1982
This analysis suggests that the present low level of use of technology in education results from fundamental incompatibilities between the educational system in the United States and most of the technology systems intended to perform educational functions. Economics alone will not bring an educational productivity revolution. (MP)
