Dobozy, Eva – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
An ongoing challenge in higher education is the support of educators in their development of effective pedagogies. The field of educational research and practice referred to as Learning Design may be able to help educators with no or limited pedagogical training deliver highly interactive and contemporary teaching and learning offerings. The…

Sabalic, Maja; Schoener, Jason D. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Virtual reality-based technologies have been used in dentistry for almost two decades. Dental simulators, planning software and CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) systems have significantly developed over the years and changed both dental education and clinical practice. This study aimed to assess the knowledge, attitudes…

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…

Dutton, Philip J.; Bickerstaff, Helen E.; Rymer, Janice M.; Webb, Mary E.; Ballinger-Mills, Deborah; Greenough, Anne; Reynolds, Patricia A. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
This pilot study evaluated the student user experience of a performance indicator tool (PIT) for formative assessment of a cohort of fourth year medical undergraduates undertaking a 12 week rotation. Scoping and elaboration for the standalone web-based tool was based on the existing paper-based formative assessment system for which training and…

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…

Blikstein, Paulo; Gomes, July Silveira; Akiba, Henrique Teruo; Schneider, Bertrand – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Technology is changing the way students interact with knowledge, and open-ended activities are one of the main types of tasks that students engage with in technology-rich environments. However, the amount of guidance needed to promote learning in these environments remains unknown. We explore this issue by focusing on the effects of step-by-step…

Paneque, Juan J.; Cobo, Pedro; Fortuny, Josep M. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
This ethnographical study aims to interpret how an intelligent tutorial system, geogebraTUTOR, mediates to the student's argumentative processes. Data consisted of four geometrical problems proposed to a group of four students aged 16-17. Qualitative analysis of two selected cases led to the identification of the development of argumentative…

Kuzle, Ana – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Students regularly struggle with mathematical tasks, particularly those concerning non-routine problems in geometry. Although educators would like for their learners to transfer their knowledge to non-routine and real-life situations, students run into a number of difficulties. The goal of this exploratory study was to analyze three participants'…

Camilleri, Mark Anthony; Camilleri, Adriana Caterina – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
This research explores the educators' attitudes and perceptions about their utilisation of digital learning technologies. The methodology integrates measures from "the pace of technological innovativeness" and the "technology acceptance model" to understand the rationale for further ICT investment in compulsory education. A…

Tang, Hengtao; Clariana, Roy – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
This descriptive exploratory study considers whether a simple sorting task can elicit readers' knowledge structure in learners' first and second language. In this investigation, knowledge structure is considered from a symbolic connectionist viewpoint as the fundamental pre-meaningful aspect of knowledge, where structure is the precursor of…

Bell, Amanda; Gresalfi, Melissa – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Digital games have demonstrated great potential for supporting students' learning across disciplines. But integrating games into instruction is challenging and requires teachers to shift instructional practices. One factor that contributes to the successful use of games in a classroom is teachers' experience implementing the technologies. But how…

Ornelas, Fermin; Ordonez, Carlos – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
This research focuses on developing and implementing a continuous Naïve Bayesian classifier for GEAR courses at Rio Salado Community College. Previous implementation efforts of a discrete version did not predict as well, 70%, and had deployment issues. This predictive model has higher prediction, over 90%, accuracy for both at-risk and successful…

Cho, Eunji; Lee, Kyunghwa; Cherniak, Shara; Jung, Sung Eun – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Drawing on Latour's (Reassembling the social: an introduction to actor--network-theory, Oxford University Press, New York, 2005), this manuscript discusses a study of a robotics class in a public, Title I elementary school. Compared with theoretical frameworks (e.g., constructivism and constructionism) dominant in the field of early childhood…

San Pedro, Maria Ofelia Z.; Baker, Ryan S.; Heffernan, Neil T. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Middle school is an important phase in the academic trajectory, which plays a major role in the path to successful post-secondary outcomes such as going to college. Despite this, research on factors leading to college-going choices do not yet utilize the extensive fine-grained data now becoming available on middle school learning and engagement.…
