Olsson, Jan; Granberg, Carina – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2019
The present study contributes to knowledge about how to design tasks that benefit from dynamic software in math education, comparing practice performance and learning outcomes among 129 students practicing on two different task designs using GeoGebra. The task designs differed with respect to the presence or absence of guidelines on how to solve…

Doron, Esty; Spektor-Levy, Ornit – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2019
This qualitative study aimed to examine how teachers in one-to-one (1:1) classrooms changed their views regarding the integration of students' personal laptops over three academic years. Given the relative lack of longitudinal studies in the field of technology in education, this study is unique in tracing transformations in teachers' views. The…

Sage, Kara; Krebs, Briana; Grove, Rachel – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2019
The present study compared the effectiveness of paper and digital flashcards. College students learned vocabulary from paper, computer, or tablet flashcards that were self-created or ready-made. Students then completed a memory recall test and answered questions on cognitive load, perceived control, satisfaction, and several individual difference…

Shahriari-Rad, Arash; Cox, Margaret; Woolford, Mark – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
This study was the fourth study (Study 4) of four consecutive cohort studies (2007/2008, 2008/2009, 2009/2010 and 2010/2011) of over 520 dental undergraduate first year students at King's College London as part of their 5-year undergraduate programme. The study reported in this paper is a 2-year longitudinal investigation of 140 first year…

Grotzer, Tina A.; Powell, Megan M.; Derbiszewska, Katarzyna M.; Courter, Caroline J.; Kamarainen, Amy M.; Metcalf, Shari J.; Dede, Christopher J. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2015
Reasoning about ecosystems includes consideration of causality over temporal and spatial distances; yet learners typically focus on immediate time frames and local contexts. Teaching students to reason beyond these boundaries has met with some success based upon tests that cue students to the types of reasoning required. Virtual worlds offer an…

Liu, Shiyu – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2015
This research investigates the role of virtual experiments and worked examples in the learning of the control of variable strategy (CVS). Sixty-nine seventh-grade students participated in this study over a span of 6 weeks and were engaged in worked example learning and/or virtual experimentation to study the knowledge and procedures associated…

Daily, Shaundra B.; Leonard, Alison E.; Jörg, Sophie; Babu, Sabarish; Gundersen, Kara; Parmar, Dhaval – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2015
This emerging technology report describes virtual environment interactions an approach for blending movement and computer programming as an embodied way to support girls in building computational thinking skills. The authors seek to understand how body syntonicity might enable young learners to bootstrap their intuitive knowledge in order to…

Erlandson, Benjamin E. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2014
Measures of participants' water cycle knowledge and ability to recognize emergence were taken at various points throughout a 2-h experience with the Cloverdale virtual watershed socioecological simulation. Multilevel growth models were estimated for analysis of hypothesized predictive relationships between measured variables. Significant…

Stroup, Walter M.; Wilensky, Uri – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2014
Placed in the larger context of broadening the engagement with systems dynamics and complexity theory in school-aged learning and teaching, this paper is intended to introduce, situate, and illustrate--with results from the use of network supported participatory simulations in classrooms--a stance we call "embedded complementarity" as an…

Sinclair, Nathalie; Heyd-Metzuyanim, Einat – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2014
In this paper we describe a touchscreen application called "TouchCounts," which is designed to support the development of number sense in the early years. We first provide an a priori analysis of its affordances. Then, using Sfard's communicational approach, augmented by a focus both on the role of the body--particularly the fingers…

Bokhove, Christian; Drijvers, Paul – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2012
The design and arrangement of appropriate automatic feedback in digital learning environment is a widely recognized issue. In this article, we investigate the effect of feedback on the design and the results of a digital intervention for algebra. Three feedback principles guided the intervention: timing and fading, crises, and feedback variation.…

Abrahamson, Dor; Gutierrez, Jose; Charoenying, Timothy; Negrete, Andrea; Bumbacher, Engin – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2012
How do instructors guide students to discover mathematical content? Are current explanatory models of pedagogical practice suitable to capture pragmatic essentials of discovery-based instruction? We examined videographed data from the implementation of a natural user interface design for proportions, so as to determine one constructivist tutor's…

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…
