Nikolos, Dimitris; Komis, Vassilis – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
The Scratch programming language is an introductory programming language for students. It is also a visual concurrent programming language, where multiple threads are executed simultaneously. Synchronization in concurrent languages is a complex task for novices to understand. Our research is focused on strategies and methods applied by novice…

Lee, Soon Chun; Irving, Karen; Pape, Stephen; Owens, Douglas – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
Increased teacher awareness of student thinking and understanding enables teachers to better support students' learning by allowing for increased formative feedback that clarifies students' understanding and supports their construction of knowledge. However, many science teachers do not possess skills related to assessing student learning and…

Gustafson, Brenda; Mahaffy, Peter; Martin, Brian – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
This paper focuses on one Grade 5 class (9 females; 9 males) who worked in student-pairs to view five digital learning object (DLO) lessons created by the authors and meant to introduce students to the nature of models, the particle nature of matter, and physical change. Specifically, the paper focuses on whether DLO design elements could assist…

Park, Jungho – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
Much research has been conducted in educational robotics, a new instructional technology, for K-12 education. However, there are arguments on the effect of robotics and limited empirical evidence to investigate the impact of robotics in science learning. Also most robotics studies were carried in an informal educational setting. This study…

Straub, Jeremy; Marsh, Ronald; Whalen, David – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
Project-based learning and interdisciplinary projects present an opportunity for students to learn both technical skills and other skills which are relevant to their workplace success. This paper presents an assessment of the educational impact of the OpenOrbiter program, a student-run, interdisciplinary CubeSat (a type of small satellite with…

Morais, Adolfo; Barragués, José Ignacio; Guisasola, Jenaro – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
This work describes the design and evaluation of a proposal to use Classroom Response Systems (CRS), intended to promote participative classes of Mathematics at University. The proposal is based on Problem Based Learnig (PBL) and uses Robert's six hypotheses for mathematical teaching-learning. The results show that PBL is a relevant strategy to…

Hensberry, Karina K. R.; Moore, Emily B.; Perkins, Katherine K. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
Computer technology, when coupled with reform-based teaching practices, has been shown to be an effective way to support student learning of mathematics. The quality of the technology itself, as well as how it is used, impacts how much students learn. Interactive simulations are dynamic virtual environments similar to virtual manipulatives that…

Lee, Young-Jin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
The aims of this study are: (1) to develop iPad-based computer simulations called iSimPhysics that can help people learn Newtonian physics concepts; and (2) to assess its educational benefits and pedagogical usefulness. To facilitate learning, iSimPhysics visualizes abstract physics concepts, and allows for conducting a series of computer…

Lin, Cheng-Yao; Kuo, Yu-Chun; Ko, Yi-Yin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
The purpose of this study was to investigate elementary pre-service teachers' content knowledge in algebra (Linear Equation, Quadratic Equation, Functions, System Equations and Polynomials) as well as their technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) in teaching algebra. Participants were 79 undergraduate pre-service teachers who were…

Owusu, Kofi Acheaw; Conner, Lindsey; Astall, Chris – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
Technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) is the knowledge required for effective technology integration in teaching. In this study, New Zealand high school science teachers' TPACK was assessed through an online survey. The data and its analysis revealed that New Zealand's high school science teachers in general had a high perception of…

Bouck, Emily; Flanagan, Sara; Bouck, Mary – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
Manipulatives are considered a best practice for educating students with disabilities, but little research exists which examines virtual manipulatives as tool for supporting students in mathematics. This project investigated the use of a virtual manipulative through the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives--polynominoes (i.e., tiles)--as a…

Polly, Drew – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
Preparing pre-service teachers to effectively integrate technology in the classroom requires rich experiences that deepen their knowledge of technology, pedagogy, and content and the intersection of these aspects. This study examined elementary education pre-service teachers' development of skills and knowledge in a technology integration course…

Christensen, Rhonda; Knezek, Gerald; Tyler-Wood, Tandra – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
STEM disposition surveys were completed by 364 11th and 12th grade students attending a two-year university-based residential science and mathematics academy during fall 2012. Surveys were completed by the same classes as a post test administration during spring 2013. Major findings were that first year students tended to show a decline in their…

Yasar, Osman; Maliekal, Jose; Little, Leigh; Veronesi, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2014
This article describes findings and evolution of a teacher-training program based on a partnership of knowledge domains (technology, content, and pedagogy), teaching staff (college faculty and school teachers), educational institutions (colleges and K-12), and local communities (urban and suburban). Within 5 years, more than 180 teachers from 15…
