Leonard, Laurence B.; Deevy, Patricia; Karpicke, Jeffrey D.; Christ, Sharon L.; Kueser, Justin B. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2020
Purpose: Children with developmental language disorder (DLD) often have difficulty with word learning. Recent studies have shown that incorporating retrieval practice provides a significant benefit to this learning. However, we have not yet discovered the best balance between the amount of retrieval and the amount of study (hearing the word in the…

Klingenberg, Sara; Jørgensen, Maria L. M.; Dandanell, Gert; Skriver, Karen; Mottelson, Aske; Makransky, Guido – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Immersive virtual reality (IVR) simulations for education have been found to increase affective outcomes compared to traditional media, but the effects on learning are mixed. As reflection has previously shown to enhance learning in traditional media, we investigated the efficacy of appropriate reflection exercises for IVR. In a 2 × 2…
