Kyza, Eleni A.; Georgiou, Yiannis – Interactive Learning Environments, 2019
While learning can happen anywhere and everywhere, most educational practices in K-12 are confined within the walls of a classroom and the school; such practices narrowly define learning and exclude the opportunities that an expanded and digitally mediated definition of learning can offer. Augmented reality (AR) technologies offer exciting new…

Okada, Alexandra; Kowalski, Raquel Pasternak Glitz; Kirner, Claudio; Torres, PatrĂ­cia Lupion – Interactive Learning Environments, 2019
Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) is a contemporary approach to promote science with and for society for aligning scientific innovations with societal needs. Literature about education for RRI is limited because it is not a widespread practice at the moment. To explore this gap, this study examines teachers' views about a novel inquiry…

Goh, Joelene; Truman, Barbara; Barber, Daniel – Interactive Learning Environments, 2019
Identifying characteristics of individuals who will be negatively impacted by interactive learning environments (ILE) was explored in a field study conducted among learners whose high-stakes performance depended upon grasping training scenarios quickly. Gauging the appropriateness of computer-based simulations for individuals became a pedagogical…

Sung, Han-Yu; Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Wu, Po-Han; Lin, Dai-Qi – Interactive Learning Environments, 2018
Facilitating students' deep-strategy behaviors and positive learning performances of science inquiry is an important and challenging educational issue. In this study, a contextual science inquiry approach is proposed for developing a 3D experiential game to cope with this problem. To evaluate the impacts of the game on students' science learning…

Gunn, Therese; Jones, Lee; Bridge, Pete; Rowntree, Pam; Nissen, Lisa – Interactive Learning Environments, 2018
In recent years, simulation has increasingly underpinned the acquisition of pre-clinical skills by undergraduate medical imaging (diagnostic radiography) students. This project aimed to evaluate the impact of an innovative virtual reality (VR) learning environment on the development of technical proficiency by students. The study assessed the…

Efstathiou, Irene; Kyza, Eleni A.; Georgiou, Yiannis – Interactive Learning Environments, 2018
This study investigated the contribution of a location-based augmented reality (AR) inquiry-learning environment in developing 3rd grade students' historical empathy and conceptual understanding. Historical empathy is an important element of historical thinking, which is considered to improve conceptual understanding and support the development of…

Lu, Andrew; Chan, Sandra; Cai, Yiyu; Huang, Lihui; Nay, Zin Tun; Goei, Sui Lin – Interactive Learning Environments, 2018
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder with different levels of severity. Although the exact causes of ASD is not yet known, nor is there a medical cure for ASD to date, special facilities and schools have been established to help individuals coping better and becoming more independent. With the advancement in Virtual Reality…

Wu, Po-Han; Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Yang, Mei-Ling; Chen, Chih-Hung – Interactive Learning Environments, 2018
Augmented reality (AR) offers potential advantages for intensifying environmental context awareness and augmenting students' experiences in real-world environments by dynamically overlapping digital materials with a real-world environment. However, some challenges to AR learning environments have been described, such as participants' cognitive…

Garneli, Varvara; Chorianopoulos, Konstantinos – Interactive Learning Environments, 2018
Various aspects of computational thinking (CT) could be supported by educational contexts such as simulations and video-games construction. In this field study, potential differences in student motivation and learning were empirically examined through students' code. For this purpose, we performed a teaching intervention that took place over five…
