Hu, Xiao – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
Despite the rapid development in the area of learning analytics (LA), there is comparatively little focused towards the secondary level of education. This ongoing work presents the latest developed function of Wikiglass, an LA tool designed for automatically recognising, aggregating, and visualising levels of thinking orders in student…

Reimann, Peter – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
This paper argues that learning analytics (LA) can make contributions to learning research, in addition to aiming for improvements in learning and teaching practices in a solely applied sense. Indeed, there is potential for transforming learning research if certain approaches developed in LA were used more extensively to study learning. The…

Pietarinen, Janne; Pyhältö, Kirsi; Soini, Tiina – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
The study aims to gain a better understanding of the complexity of teacher learning by exploring the elements of teachers' sense of professional agency in the two primary contexts of teachers' work: the professional community and the classroom. Moreover, the relationship with agentic learning in these contexts is studied. A total of 2310 primary…

Nathan, Mitchell J.; Martinez, Chelsea V. J. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2015
The question of the relationship between gesture production and mental models was explored in three experiments focusing on inference making when learning from reading a scientific text. Participants engaged in one-on-one interviews after reading an illustrated tutorial on the human circulatory system. Participants gestured more frequently when…

Kapur, Manu – Learning: Research and Practice, 2015
I advance a theoretically and empirically-grounded case for designing for and learning from failure, and instantiate it in a learning design called Productive Failure (PF). I describe the key mechanisms and the design principles of PF. The PF learning design comprises a generation and exploration phase followed by a consolidation and knowledge…
