West, Jessica A. – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2019
In this article, I share the ways in which New Literacies theory served as an interpretive lens to understand how the Internet as a cultural tool mediates the literacy actions of adolescents in English Language Arts classrooms. Data were drawn from a larger study in which students who were considered "at-risk" because of previous…

Guncaga, Ján; Žilková, Katarína – European Journal of Contemporary Education, 2019
Visualisation is an important part of the cognitive process in mathematics. Pedagogical-psychological theoretical frameworks concerning cognitive processes consider perception and visualisation as basic conditions for the creation of correct mental imagery. This study examined visualisation as a key factor in the development of geometric concepts…

Braeken, Johan; Blömeke, Sigrid – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2016
Using data from the international Teacher Education and Development Study: Learning to Teach Mathematics (TEDS-M), the measurement equivalence of teachers' beliefs across countries is investigated for the case of "mathematics-as-a fixed-ability". Measurement equivalence is a crucial topic in all international large-scale assessments and…

Tanimoto, S.; Thompson, R.; Berninger, V. W.; Nagy, W.; Abbott, R. D. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Computer scientists and educational researchers evaluated effectiveness of computerized instruction tailored to evidence-based impairments in specific learning disabilities (SLDs) in students in grades 4-9 with persisting SLDs despite prior extra help. Following comprehensive, evidence-based differential diagnosis for dysgraphia (impaired…

El Mouhayar, Rabih; Jurdak, Murad – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This paper explored variation of strategy use in pattern generalization across different generalization types and across grade level. A test was designed to assess students' strategy use in pattern generalization tasks. The test was given to a sample of 1232 students from grades 4 to 11 from five schools in Lebanon. The findings of this study…

Haglund, Jesper; Jeppsson, Fredrik; Hedberg, David; Schönborn, Konrad J. – Physics Education, 2015
Thermal cameras offer real-time visual access to otherwise invisible thermal phenomena, which are conceptually demanding for learners during traditional teaching. We present three studies of students' conduction of laboratory activities that employ thermal cameras to teach challenging thermal concepts in grades 4, 7 and 10-12. Visualization of…
