De Vita, Mauro; Verschaffel, Lieven; Elen, Jan – Learning Environments Research, 2018
This research explored the stimulation of mathematics understanding and learning in an Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) environment. IWB affordances appear to be best used when mathematical tasks engage students in mathematical reasoning and when all students are involved in the discussion. The intent of this project was to design and implement,…

Sirrakos, George, Jr.; Fraser, Barry J. – Learning Environments Research, 2017
This mixed-methods cross-national study investigated the effectiveness of reality pedagogy (an approach in which teachers become part of students' activities, practices and rituals) in terms of changes in student perceptions of their learning environment and attitudes towards science. A questionnaire was administered to 142 students in grades 8-10…
