Black, Michael; Green, Ricky – Information Systems Education Journal, 2018
For students seeking careers not related to the computer sciences, the task of installation, configuration and maintenance of software on business class systems may be an essential skill. Dedicated computers are essential to these kinds of courses, but the constraints of university computer labs prohibit their use. Other solutions exist, but…

Love, Tyler S.; Roy, Ken – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Health concerns from 3D printing were first documented by Stephens, Azimi, Orch, and Ramos (2013), who found that commercially available 3D printers were producing hazardous levels of ultrafine particles (UFPs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) when plastic materials were melted through the extruder. UFPs are particles less than 100 nanometers…

Samuels, Kyle; Flowers, Jim – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2015
As 3D printers become more affordable, schools are using them in increasing numbers. They fit well with the emphasis on product design in technology and engineering education, allowing students to create high-fidelity physical models to see and test different iterations in their product designs. They may also help students to "think in three…

Leenaars, Frank A.; Joolingen, Wouter R.; Gijlers, Hannie; Bollen, Lars – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2014
GearSketch is a learning environment for the gears domain, aimed at students in the final years of primary school. It is designed for use with a touchscreen device and is based on ideas from drawing-based learning and research on cognitive tutors. At the heart of GearSketch is a domain model that is used to transform learners' strokes into…

Scalfani, Vincent F.; Sahib, Josh – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2013
The appearance of 3D printers in university libraries opens many opportunities for advancing outreach, teaching, and research programs. The University of Alabama (UA) Libraries recently adopted 3D printing technology and maintains an open access 3D Printing Studio. The Studio consists of a 3D printer, multiple 3D design workstations, and other…

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…

Solman, Grayden J. F.; Cheyne, J. Allan; Smilek, Daniel – Cognition, 2012
We present results from five search experiments using a novel "unpacking" paradigm in which participants use a mouse to sort through random heaps of distractors to locate the target. We report that during this task participants often fail to recognize the target despite moving it, and despite having looked at the item. Additionally, the missed…

Lane, Jenny M. – Australian Journal of Teacher Education, 2012
In 2008 Australians were promised a "Digital Education Revolution" by the government to dramatically change classroom education and build a "world-class education system". Eight billion dollars have been spent providing computer equipment for upper secondary classrooms, yet there is little evidence that a revolution has…

Shih, Ching-Hsiang – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2011
This study evaluated whether two people with multiple disabilities and minimal motor behavior would be able to improve their Drag-and-Drop (DnD) performance using their finger/thumb poke ability with a mouse scroll wheel through a Dynamic Drag-and-Drop Assistive Program (DDnDAP). A multiple probe design across participants was used in this study…

Shih, Ching-Hsiang; Shih, Ching-Tien; Pi, Pi-Hsiang – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2011
The latest research adopting software technology to improve pointing performance is through an Automatic Target Acquisition Program (ATAP), where the user can click on the mouse button when a dashed line is aimed at the desired target, instead of moving the cursor to the target. However, ATAP has one limitation--it cannot benefit from Mouseover…

Shih, Ching-Hsiang; Shih, Ching-Tien; Peng, Chin-Ling – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2011
This study evaluated whether two people with multiple disabilities would be able to improve their pointing performance through an Automatic Target Acquisition Program (ATAP) and a newly developed mouse driver (i.e. a new mouse driver replaces standard mouse driver, and is able to monitor mouse movement and intercept click action). Initially, both…

Shanthy, T. Rajula; Thiagarajan, R. – Journal of Agricultural Education and Extension, 2011
In this article, the practicability of introduction of computer multimedia as an educational tool was compared with the traditional approach for training sugarcane growers in ratoon management practices in three villages of Tamil Nadu state, India using pre-test, post-test control group experimental design. A CD-ROM was developed as a multimedia…

Lu, Chow-Chin; Chen, Yueh-Yun; Chen, Chen-Wei – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
The central focus of this study was the development, use and evaluation of CD-ROM picture books in elementary school science teaching. Three CD-ROM picture books based on the Campus Insects unit from the new elementary school science curriculum in Taiwan were developed. A quasi-experimental method was used to compare the use of the CD-ROMs and…

Fante, Rhiannon; Gravina, Nicole; Betz, Alison; Austin, John – Journal of Organizational Behavior Management, 2010
This study employed structural and treatment analyses to determine factors that contributed to wrist posture safety in a small pharmacy. The pharmacy was located on a university campus and participants were three female pharmacy technicians. These particular employees had experienced various repetitive-motion injuries that resulted in a total of…
