Bawa, Papia – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2019
Today, there is growing interest in digital game-based learning due to the increase in the variety of educational and commercial games available. The literature indicates that digital educational games are effective at keeping learners engaged. This study examines the use of a digital educational game called Kahoot and supports the hypothesis that…

Poitras, Eric G.; Fazeli, Negar; Mayne, Zachary R. – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2018
Information seeking and acquisition is fundamental to learning from hypermedia, but student teachers often fail to regulate their own learning. A total of 68 students learned with either a static or a dynamic version of nBrowser, a network-based tutor that adapted recommendations of online resources to support information seeking and acquisition.…

Dib, Hazar Nicholas; Adamo-Villani, Nicoletta – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2016
We describe the development and evaluation of a virtual steel sculpture for engineering education. A good connection design requires the engineer to have a solid understanding of the mechanics and steel behavior. To help students better understand various connection types, many schools have acquired steel sculptures. A steel sculpture is a…

Flores, Raymond; Coward, Fanni; Crooks, Steven M. – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2011
This study aimed to investigate the effects of modality and gender on learning from a computer-based matrix graphic organizer. A 2 x 2 factorial experiment was created by crossing two presentation modes (visual text vs. spoken text) and gender. Dependent measures included transfer and comprehension tests. Results revealed a significant modality by…
