Du, Xuejiao; Zhang, Qi – Educational Psychology, 2019
Previous research has verified the benefits obtained when learners trace out worked examples with the index finger. Our study conducted two experiments to explore the reasons for this phenomenon and its generalizability. Experiment 1 compared the learning effects among tracing, non-tracing, and cueing methods. The cueing method was included to…

Wright, Lael; Shaw, Daniel; Gaidds, Kimberly; Lyman, Gregory; Sorey, Timothy – Science and Children, 2018
Although solving an engineering design project problem with limited resources or structural capabilities of materials can be part of the challenge, students making their own parts can support creativity. The authors of this article found an exciting solution: 3D printers are not only one of several tools for making but also facilitate a creative…

Allan, Denise; Vettese, Samantha; Thompson, Paul – Design and Technology Education, 2018
In this article, the researchers investigate different ways in which school age, 'generation net' children learn, through non-linear, mediated, collaborative 'making' environments, enabled by informal club settings and online 'builder' gaming and groups. In addition to this, the study will investigate these learning methods in relation to…

McConnell, William; Dickerson, Daniel – Science and Children, 2017
In this article, the authors describe a fourth-grade lesson where 3-D printing technologies were not only a stimulus for engagement but also served as a modeling tool providing meaningful learning opportunities. Specifically, fourth-grade students construct an argument that animals' external structures function to support survival in a particular…

McKenney, Susan; Voogt, Joke – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2017
Technology applications can make important contributions to improving learning outcomes in the domain of early literacy. However, to fully exploit the potential of educational technologies, teachers must have specific knowledge and skills. This study aimed to articulate the technological pedagogical content knowledge teachers need to make…

Curcic, Svjetlana; Johnstone, Robin S. – Computers in the Schools, 2016
This study examined the effects of an intervention in writing with digital interactive books. To improve the writing skills of seventh- and eighth-grade students with a learning disability in reading, we conducted a quasi-experimental study in which the students read interactive digital books (i-books), took notes, wrote summaries, and acted as…

Cochran, Jill A.; Cochran, Zane; Laney, Kendra; Dean, Mandi – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
With the rise of personal desktop 3D printing, a wide spectrum of educational opportunities has become available for educators to leverage this technology in their classrooms. Until recently, the ability to create physical 3D models was well beyond the scope, skill, and budget of many schools. However, since desktop 3D printers have become readily…

Carter, Luke – Primary Science, 2015
3D printers are a way of producing a 3D model of an item from a digital file. The model builds up in successive layers of material placed by the printer controlled by the information in the computer file. In this article the author argues that 3D printers are one of the greatest technological advances of recent times. He discusses practical uses…

Rabbidge, Michael; Lorenzutti, Nico – English Teaching Forum, 2013
In East Asian nations such as Korea--where EFL is increasingly central to education policy--more and more workshops, seminars, and conferences focus on helping teachers incorporate extensive reading (ER) programs into their teaching contexts. There is a wide range of materials available for ER, including graded readers--novels and short stories…
