Tran, Yune – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2018
The development of elementary-aged students' STEM and computer science (CS) literacy is critical in this evolving technological landscape, thus, promoting success for college, career, and STEM/CS professional paths. Research has suggested that elementary-aged students need developmentally appropriate STEM integrated opportunities in the classroom;…

McCarthy, Elizabeth; Tiu, Michelle; Li, Linlin – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2018
This paper presents two studies of transmedia interventions in the classroom. The two studies address how narrative-based transmedia curricular resources can support student learning in early mathematics. The studies were designed to identify the affordances (features and advantages) of transmedia-based learning in preschool and first grade…

Niederhauser, Dale S.; Howard, Sarah K.; Voogt, Joke; Agyei, Douglas D.; Laferriere, Therese; Tondeur, Jo; Cox, Margaret J. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2018
Although a positive impact of technology interventions on educational practice and student outcomes has been shown in many previous research settings, the use of technology in classrooms and schools is still often superficial and not meeting the potential of technology as envisioned by education reformers and researchers in the field. However,…

Christensen, Rhonda; Eichhorn, Koos; Prestridge, Sarah; Petko, Dominik; Sligte, Henk; Baker, Rowland; Alayyar, Ghaida; Knezek, Gerald – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2018
Learning leaders have important roles in facilitating and supporting the effective and innovative integration of technology in schools. Many leaders who are charged with the task of technology integration have not received professional development to support a leadership role. Many teachers who assume the role of technology leaders develop into…

Guggisberg, Marika – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Professionals in the health and education sector require knowledge and understanding of issues of family violence. Violence in the family home against women and children continues to present alarming problems. Significant evidence suggests that not only current and former female partners, but also children, are exposed to violence in the home.…

Lea, Susan J.; Quinn, Barry; Reynolds, Patricia A. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Domestic violence (DV) is a major public problem affecting 30% of women over 16. Three quarters of victims have violence to the head and neck, and therefore the role of the dentist is paramount in DV identification. Only one-third of dental schools in the UK include DV in their curricula and there is a need to introduce effective education for the…

Millis, Keith; Forsyth, Carol; Wallace, Patricia; Graesser, Arthur C.; Timmins, Gary – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Prior research has shown that students learn from Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS). However, students' attention may drift or become disengaged with the task over extended amounts of instruction. To remedy this problem, researchers have examined the impact of game-like features (e.g., a narrative) in digital learning environments on motivation…

Guarcello, Maureen A.; Levine, Richard A.; Beemer, Joshua; Frazee, James P.; Laumakis, Mark A.; Schellenberg, Stephen A. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a voluntary, non-remedial, peer-facilitated, course-specific intervention that has been widely demonstrated to increase student success, yet concerns persist regarding the biasing effects of disproportionate participation by already higher-performing students. With a focus on maintaining access for all students, a…

Teasley, Stephanie D. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
This emerging technology report reviews a new development in educational technology, student-facing dashboards, which provide comparative performance feedback to students calculated by Learning Analytics-based algorithms on data generated from university students' use of educational technology. Instructor- and advisor-facing dashboards emerged as…

Liu, Min; Kang, Jina; Zou, Wenting; Lee, Hyeyeon; Pan, Zilong; Corliss, Stephanie – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
There is much enthusiasm in higher education about the benefits of adaptive learning and using big data to investigate learning processes to make data-informed educational decisions. The benefits of adaptive learning to achieve personalized learning are obvious. Yet, there lacks evidence-based research to understand how data such as user behavior…

Soto, Melissa; Ambrose, Rebecca – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Increased attention to reasoning and justification in mathematics classrooms requires the use of more authentic assessment methods. Particularly important are tools that allow teachers and students opportunities to engage in formative assessment practices such as gathering data, interpreting understanding, and revising thinking or instruction.…

Shelton, Brett E.; Hung, Jui-Long; Baughman, Sarah – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Predicting which students enrolled in graduate online education are at-risk for failure is an arduous yet important task for teachers and administrators alike. This research reports on a statistical analysis technique using both static and dynamic variables to determine which students are at-risk and when an intervention could be most helpful…

Culp, Katherine McMillan; Martin, Wendy; Clements, Margaret; Lewis Presser, Ashley – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2015
Rigorous studies of the impact of digital games on student learning remain relatively rare, as do studies of games as supports for learning difficult, core curricular concepts in the context of normal classroom practices. This study uses a blocked, cluster randomized controlled trial design to test the impact of a digital game, played as homework…

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.…
