Cumber, Peter – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2021
Mechanical engineering students often find the formulation and analysis of dynamical systems difficult. The response of some mechanical engineering undergraduates is that as much as possible courses on mechanics are best avoided. The aim of this paper is to produce some interesting dynamical systems that may help to change the opinions of the…

MacRae, Christina; MacLure, Maggie – Ethnography and Education, 2021
This article explores emerging findings in a sensory ethnography based in a nursery setting where video data has been co-produced with parents, practitioners and 2-year-old children. The project mobilises Froebel's twin concepts of 'unfoldment' and 'self-activity', reinstating the importance of the sensory-motor register as a form of knowledge…

Kaliukhovich, Dzmitry A.; Manyakov, Nikolay V.; Bangerter, Abigail; Ness, Seth; Skalkin, Andrew; Boice, Matthew; Goodwin, Matthew S.; Dawson, Geraldine; Hendren, Robert; Leventhal, Bennett; Shic, Frederick; Pandina, Gahan – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2021
Participants with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) (n = 121, mean [SD] age: 14.6 [8.0] years) and typically developing (TD) controls (n = 40, 16.4 [13.3] years) were presented with a series of videos representing biological motion on one side of a computer monitor screen and non-biological motion on the other, while their eye movements were…

Napoli, Donna Jo; Ferrara, Casey – Cognitive Science, 2021
Sign language phonological parameters are somewhat analogous to phonemes in spoken language. Unlike phonemes, however, there is little linguistic literature arguing that these parameters interact at the sublexical level. This situation raises the question of whether such interaction in spoken language phonology is an artifact of the modality or…

Amico, Gianluca; Schaefer, Sabine – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Studies on "embodiment" show that moving your body can enhance cognition. We investigated such effects in a verbal memory task across age. In Study 1, children, adolescents, and young adults (N = 148) were tested in group sessions and reproduced number series of increasing length. In the "embodied" condition, subjects walked to…

Franse, Rooske K.; van Schijndel, Tessa J. P.; Plankman, Tamara I.; Raijmakers, Maartje E. J. – Science Education, 2021
Research on the impact of guided investigation, including verbal guidance strategies, has expanded in the recent decade, and the current work contributes to this line of research in a museum context. The current in-depth study examines the impact of verbal guidance strategies on family learning at an open-ended museum exhibit, considering…

Loos, Cornelia; Napoli, Donna Jo – Cognitive Science, 2021
Echo phonology was originally proposed to account for obligatory coordination of manual and mouth articulations observed in several sign languages. However, previous research into the phenomenon lacks clear criteria for which components of movement can or must be copied when the articulators are so different. Nor is there discussion of which…

Joseph, Toby – Physics Education, 2021
Problems involving rotating systems analysed from an inertial frame, without invoking fictitious forces, is something that freshman students find difficult to understand in an introductory mechanics course. In this article we try to see what could be the factors that lead to this difficulty and propose a set of arguments that could be used to…

Woithe, J.; Kersting, M. – Physics Education, 2021
Dark matter is one of the most intriguing scientific mysteries of our time and offers exciting instructional opportunities for physics education in high schools. The topic is likely to engage and motivate students in the classroom and allows addressing open questions of the Standard Model of particle physics. Although the empirical evidence of…

Gallitto, Aurelio Agliolo; Battaglia, Onofrio Rosario; Fazio, Claudio – Physics Education, 2021
We describe an educational activity that can be done by using smartphones to collect data in physics experiments aimed to measure the oscillating period of a spring-mass system and the elastic constant of the helicoidal spring by the dynamic method. Results for the oscillating period and for the elastic constant of the spring agree very well with…

Yerdelen-Damar, Sevda; Eryilmaz, Ali – Research in Science Education, 2021
This study investigated the effect of the metacognitive instruction in which students' epistemic cognitions were explicitly addressed, on tenth-grade students' conceptual understandings regarding force and motion. The participants of the study included 107 (49 female, 58 male) tenth-grade students at two public high schools. A quasi-experimental…

Yang, Xianmin; Zhao, Xinshuo; Tian, Xuesong; Xing, Beibei – Interactive Learning Environments, 2021
Mobile learning (M-learning) is currently popular. Although M-learning has a positive effect on the interest, attitude, initiative, and learning of learners, it comes with the negative effect of distraction. Exploring the factors that influence M-learning concentration have become a popular research subject. Environment (quiet and noisy) and…

Vali Noghondar, Narges; Sohrabi, Mehdi; Taheri, Hamid Reza; Kobravi, Hamid Reza; Khodashenas, Ezzat – International Journal of Developmental Disabilities, 2021
Objective: It is unclear whether slowness and higher reaction time of individuals with Down syndrome (DS) are because of inability to pre-program and using the generalized motor program (GMP) or not. So, the purpose of this study was to examine the consistency of relative timing as a fixed feature of a GMP in overhand throwing with changing the…

Fonseca, Ana R.; Abril-de-Abreu, Rodrigo; Fernandes, Carla – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2021
Human creativity finds in artistic practices one of its most admirable forms. Most of the studies about artistic practices have used qualitative approaches, focusing on the conceptual structures conveyed by the artwork. Few studies have used quantitative approaches with the potential to be generalized. This study has focused on developing a…

Schott, Christian; Marshall, Stephen – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
Virtual reality technology has made significant advances and is now widely recognised for its potential to provide fully immersive experiences that have relevance to many aspects of life, including education. This paper explores the effectiveness of VR technology for situated experiential education by adopting a user experience (UX) theoretical…
