Weiss, D. Mark; Belland, Brian R. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2018
With increasing class sizes, teachers and facilitators alike hope for learning groups where students work together in self-contained and autonomous ways requiring reduced teacher support. Yet many instructors find the idea of developing independent learning in small groups to be elusive particularly in K-12 settings (Ertmer and Simons in…

Henriksen, Danah; Henderson, Michael; Creely, Edwin; Ceretkova, Sona; Cernochová, Miroslava; Sendova, Evgenia; Sointu, Erkko T.; Tienken, Christopher H. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2018
In this article, we consider the benefits and challenges of enacting creativity in the K-12 context and examine educational policy with regard to twenty-first century learning and technology. Creativity is widely considered to be a key construct for twenty-first century education. In this article, we review the literature on creativity relevant to…

Wüstenberg, Sascha; Stadler, Matthias; Hautamäki, Jarkko; Greiff, Samuel – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2014
Education in the twenty-first century must prepare students to meet the challenges of a dynamic and interconnected world. However, assessment of students' skills tends to focus primarily on static tasks. Therefore, it is not known whether knowledge about successful strategies displayed on static tasks can be transferred to interactive and dynamic…

Sengupta, Pratim; Farris, Amy Voss; Wright, Mason – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2012
Novice learners find motion as a continuous process of change challenging to understand. In this paper, we present a pedagogical approach based on agent-based, visual programming to address this issue. Integrating agent-based programming, in particular, Logo programming, with curricular science has been shown to be challenging in previous research…

Yerushalmy, Michal; Naftaliev, Elena – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2011
In an attempt to study the emerging questions about design of mathematical tasks that could support the solving of challenging problems, we designed two settings of interactive diagrams that share an example represented as an animation of multi-process motion but differ in their organizational functions. The interactive settings, each comprising…

Tabach, Michal – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2011
Integrating technology in school mathematics has become more and more common. The teacher is a key person in integrating technology into everyday practice. To understand teacher practice in a technological environment, this study proposes using two theoretical perspectives: the theory of technological pedagogical content knowledge to analyze…

Kahn, Ken; Sendova, Evgenia; Sacristan, Ana Isabel; Noss, Richard – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2011
In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of computer programming activities aimed at introducing young students (9-13 years old) to the idea of infinity, and in particular, to the cardinality of infinite sets. This research was part of the "WebLabs" project where students from several European countries explored topics in…

Erfjord, Ingvald – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2011
This paper reports from a case study with teachers at two schools in Norway participating in developmental projects aiming for inquiry communities in mathematics teaching and learning. In the reported case study, the teachers participated in one of the developmental projects focusing on implementation and use of computer software in mathematics…

Abrahamson, Dor; Trninic, Dragan; Gutierrez, Jose F.; Huth, Jacob; Lee, Rosa G. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2011
Radical constructivists advocate discovery-based pedagogical regimes that enable students to incrementally and continuously adapt their cognitive structures to the instrumented cultural environment. Some sociocultural theorists, however, maintain that learning implies discontinuity in conceptual development, because novices must appropriate expert…
