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…

Yildirim, Gürkan – Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, 2018
3D printers, it is possible to define these technologies as the tools that allow the production of 3D objects from different types of raw materials to be stacked in layers and to print out concrete 3D material. In this context, 3D modelling programs are very important software for 3D printers. In current research, it was aimed to determine the…

de Cataldo, Riccardo; Griffith, Kaitlyn M.; Fogarty, Keir H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Introductory chemistry students encounter the concept of hybrid orbitals as a transition from atomic orbitals to molecular bonding. The principal purpose of learning hybridization in the undergraduate curriculum is to impart an understanding of the origins of molecular bonding and geometry. Physical models of both individual hybrid orbitals and…

An, Pengcheng; Bakker, Saskia; Eggen, Berry – Education and Information Technologies, 2017
Secondary school teachers have quite busy and complex routines in their classrooms. However, present classroom technologies usually require focused attention from teachers while being interacted with, which restricts their use in teachers' daily routines. Peripheral interaction is a human-computer interaction style that aims to enable interaction…
