Noack, Hannes; Doeller, Christian F.; Born, Jan – Learning & Memory, 2021
Spatial memory comprises different representational systems that are sensitive to different environmental cues, like proximal landmarks or local boundaries. Here we examined how sleep affects the formation of a spatial representation integrating landmark-referenced and boundary-referenced representations. To this end, participants (n = 42) were…

Li, Xiaoshan; Wang, Wenjing – Science & Education, 2021
Spatial ability is a powerful systematic source of individual differences in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and technology (STEM). Abundant research has evidenced that psychometrically assessed spatial ability is a strong predictor of STEM achievement. However, its underlying cognitive process and relevant role in STEM education…

Cousineau, Luc S. – Schole: A Journal of Leisure Studies and Recreation Education, 2021
Navigating the roles and responsibilities of graduate work is a complex, and often confusing business of workflows, labor (emotional and physical), and moving in several different directions. As graduate students, we find solace and compassion in the words and (mostly) shared experiences of our colleagues, and challenges in the desires,…

Aylward, Katie; Dahlman, Joakim; Nordby, Kjetil; Lundh, Monica – Education Sciences, 2021
Maritime user interfaces for ships' bridges are highly dependent on the context in which they are used, and rich maritime context is difficult to recreate in the early stages of user-centered design processes. Operations in Arctic waters where crews are faced with extreme environmental conditions, technology limitations and a lack of accurate…

Grossnickle Peterson, Emily; Alexander, Patricia A. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2020
Academic tasks frequently require students to effectively process multiple sources across print and digital mediums. Yet, studies of multiple source use have almost exclusively confined examinations to a single medium. In the present study, undergraduate students (n = 50) wore a head-mounted video camera while developing a PowerPoint presentation…

Benvenuti, Martina; Mazzoni, Elvis – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Wayfinding is one of the most important skills that children have to learn in order to safely move in the environment. One problem that 5-year-old children encounter with wayfinding is changing their point of view to that of another person in different position in the same environment, such as that of a person opposite them whose perspective is…
