Brand-Gruwel, S.; Kammerer, Y.; van Meeuwen, L.; van Gog, T. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
Nowadays, almost everyone uses the World Wide Web (WWW) to search for information of any kind. In education, students frequently use the WWW for selecting information to accomplish assignments such as writing an essay or preparing a presentation. The evaluation of sources and information is an important sub-skill in this process. But many students…

Gremmen, M. C.; Molenaar, I.; Teepe, R. C. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2016
Some children enter elementary school with large vocabulary delays, which negatively influence their later school performance. A rich home language environment can support vocabulary development through frequent high-quality parent-toddler interaction. Elaborated picture home activities can support this rich home language environment. This study…

Ng, C. S. L.; Cheung, W. S.; Hew, K. F. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2012
Peer facilitation is proposed as a solution to counter limited interaction in asynchronous online discussions. However, there is a lack of empirical research on online peer facilitation. This study identifies, through cross-case comparison of two graduate-level blended courses attended by Asian Pacific students, the actual peer facilitation…

Salminen, T.; Marttunen, M.; Laurinen, L. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2010
This study investigates whether combining chat discussion and construction of an argument diagram stimulates students to formulate new ideas in practising argumentation. In this study, 16 secondary school students discussed vivisection and gender equality in pairs using both free and structured chat tools. In structured chat, the students selected…
