Sahin, Alpaslan; Top, Namik; Delen, Erhan – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Because mobile technology has become so obvious in a child's life, use of it for teaching and learning has become a necessity. This study investigates use of Chromebook laptops in 6-12 grade classrooms in relation to teachers' experience. We employ a mixed method approach. First, we study how teachers' years of teaching and numbers of…

Moos, Daniel C.; Bonde, Caitlin – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
This study examined the effectiveness of embedding self-regulated learning (SRL) prompts in a video designed for the flipped class model. The sample included 32 undergraduate participants who were randomly assigned to one of two conditions: control (video) or experimental (video + SRL prompts). Prior knowledge was measured with a pre-test, SRL was…

Chin, Doris B.; Blair, Kristen P.; Schwartz, Daniel L. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
In partnership with both formal and informal learning institutions, researchers have been building a suite of online games, called choicelets, to serve as interactive assessments of learning skills, e.g. critical thinking or seeking feedback. Unlike more traditional assessments, which take a retrospective, knowledge-based view of learning,…

Denham, André R. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Designing and developing games for learning is a difficult endeavor. Educational game designers must not only make an engaging and motivating game, but must also ensure that learning takes place as a result of gameplay. Educational researchers have sought to define design principles in order to lessen the difficulty involved with game design. In…

Nelson, Brian C.; Kim, Younsu; Slack, Kent – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Education policy in the United States centers K-12 assessment efforts primarily on standardized tests. However, such tests may not provide an accurate and reliable representation of what students understand about the complexity of science. Research indicates that students tend to pass science tests, even if they do not understand the concepts…

Law, Victor; Ge, Xun; Eseryel, Deniz – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Self-regulation has been shown as a critical factor in learning in a regular classroom environment (e.g. Wolters and Pintrich in "Instr Sci" 26(1):27-47, 1998. doi: 10.1023/A:1003035929216). However, little research has been conducted to understand self-regulation in the context of collaboration (Dinsmore et al. in "Educ Psychol…

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…

Liu, Min; Lee, Jaejin; Kang, Jina; Liu, Sa – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Using a multi-case approach, we examined students' behavior patterns in interacting with a serious game environment using the emerging technologies of learning analytics and data visualization in order to understand how the patterns may vary according to students' learning characteristics. The results confirmed some preliminary findings from our…

Kevan, Jonathan M.; Ryan, Paul R. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
This emerging technology report describes the Experience API (xAPI), a new e-learning specification designed to support the learning community in standardizing and collecting both formal and informal distributed learning activities. Informed by Activity Theory, a framework aligned with constructivism, data is collected in the form of activity…

Olmanson, Justin; Kennett, Katrina; Magnifico, Alecia; McCarthey, Sarah; Searsmith, Duane; Cope, Bill; Kalantzis, Mary – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Once writers complete a first draft, they are often encouraged to evaluate their writing and prioritize what to revise. Yet, this process can be both daunting and difficult. This study looks at how students used a semantic concept mapping tool to re-present the content and organization of their initial draft of an informational text. We examine…

Lopez, Leslie Ann – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Student teachers are most often provided opportunities for observing, then engaging directly in teaching during the student-teaching phase of their program. The ability to "notice" nuanced communication techniques, and identify interrelated methods and simultaneous skills occurring during teaching coincides with the development of the…
