Chien, Yu-Hung – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
This study developed an integrated-STEM CO[subscript 2] dragster design course using 3D printing technology. After developing a pre-engineering curriculum, we conducted a teaching experiment to assess students' differences in creativity, race forecast accuracy, and learning performance. We compared student performance in both 3D printing and…

Pinger, Cody W.; Castiaux, Andre; Speed, Savannah; Spence, Dana M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Plasma protein binding measurements are an important aspect of pharmacology and drug development. Therefore, performing these measurements can provide a valuable and highly practical learning experience for students across many scientific disciplines. Here, we describe the design and characterization of a 3D-printed device capable of performing…

Nunn, John – Physics Education, 2016
A cordless mouse with an added reed switch is used as a wireless data logger to record every time the wheel of a trolley completes a revolution. The limitations of the system in terms of maximum clicking rate and spatial resolution are considered and data obtained from the descent of a trolley down a ramp at various different angles is analysed in…

Valdés Aguirre, Benjamín; Ramírez Uresti, Jorge A.; du Boulay, Benedict – International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education, 2016
Sharing user information between systems is an area of interest for every field involving personalization. Recommender Systems are more advanced in this aspect than Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) and Intelligent Learning Environments (ILEs). A reason for this is that the user models of Intelligent Tutoring Systems and Intelligent Learning…

Lee, Hyeon Woo – Asia-Pacific Education Researcher, 2015
This study aims to examine the effects of a touchscreen device (iPad in this study) on students' learning compared to a desktop PC in terms of tactile vision. The participants were 56 undergraduate students: 24 studied using a desktop PC (mouse-based interaction) and the others studied using a touchscreen device (touch-based interaction) about the…

Stamper, John, Ed.; Pardos, Zachary, Ed.; Mavrikis, Manolis, Ed.; McLaren, Bruce M., Ed. – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2014
The 7th International Conference on Education Data Mining held on July 4th-7th, 2014, at the Institute of Education, London, UK is the leading international forum for high-quality research that mines large data sets in order to answer educational research questions that shed light on the learning process. These data sets may come from the traces…

Marcial, Laura Haak – ProQuest LLC, 2012
Increasingly, users are performing more sophisticated types of tasks, like information search, across computing platforms including desktops/laptops, tablets, and smartphones. While much research has been done to improve efficiency for each of these devices in the area of information search, few investigations have taken a pragmatic approach to…

Chai, Ching Sing; Wong, Lung-Hsiang; Sim, Seok Hwa; Deng, Feng – Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, 2012
Computer-based writing is already a norm to a large extent in social communication for any major language around the world. From this perspective, it would be pedagogically sound for students to master the Chinese input system as early as possible. This poses some challenges to students in Singapore, most of which are learning Chinese as a second…

Kolivras, Korine N.; Luebbering, Candice R.; Resler, Lynn M. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2012
Field trips have become less common due to issues including budget constraints and large class sizes. Research suggests that virtual field trips can substitute for field visits, but the role of webcams has not been evaluated. To investigate the potential for webcams to substitute for field trips, participants viewed urban and physical landscapes…

Korat, Ofra; Shamir, Adina – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2012
We examine the effect of direct and indirect teaching of vocabulary and word reading on pre-kindergarten and kindergarten children following use of an electronic storybook (e-book). The children in each age group were randomly assigned to an intervention group which read the e-book or to a control group which was afforded the regular school…

Ren, Xiangshi; Zhou, Xiaolei – Behaviour & Information Technology, 2011
Many handheld devices with stylus pens are available in the market; however, there have been few studies which examine the effects of the size of the stylus pen on user performance and subjective preferences for handheld device interfaces for various age groups. Two experiments (pen-length experiment and pen-tip width/pen-width experiment) were…

Shih, Ching-Hsiang – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2011
This study combines multi-mice technology (people with disabilities can use standard mice, instead of specialized alternative computer input devices, to achieve complete mouse operation) with an assistive pointing function (i.e. cursor-capturing, which enables the user to move the cursor to the target center automatically), to assess whether two…

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…
