Sotgiu, Maria Alessandra; Mazzarello, Vittorio; Bandiera, Pasquale; Madeddu, Roberto; Montella, Andrea; Moxham, Bernard – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Neuroanatomy has been deemed crucial for clinical neurosciences. It has been one of the most challenging parts of the anatomical curriculum and is one of the causes of "neurophobia," whose main implication is a negative influence on the choice of neurology in the near future. In the last decades, several educational strategies have been…

Voice, Alison; Stirton, Arran – New Directions in the Teaching of Physical Sciences, 2020
The use of spaced repetition within a physics higher education thermodynamics module has been analysed for: its pattern of use by students; its effect on memory and performance in the end of module exam; and performance in a delayed test after the summer vacation. A custom-built web app with the facility to generate a personalised repetition…

Li, Cuihong; Hu, Zhongyu; Yang, Jiongjiong – Learning & Memory, 2020
In recent years, there have been intensive debates on whether healthy adults acquire new word knowledge through fast mapping (FM) by a different mechanism from explicit encoding (EE). In this study, we focused on this issue and investigated to what extent reteninterval, prior knowledge (PK), and lure type modulated memory after FM and EE. Healthy…

Yeo, Darren J.; Fazio, Lisa K. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Testing (having students recall material) and worked examples (having students study a completed problem) are both recommended as effective methods for improving learning. The two strategies rely on different underlying cognitive processes and thus may strengthen different types of learning in different ways. Across three experiments, we examine…

Li, Wenjing; Wang, Fuxing; Mayer, Richard E.; Liu, Huashan – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Previous studies have shown that students learn better from an online lesson when a gesturing pedagogical agent is added (Mayer & DaPra, 2012; Wang, Li, Mayer, & Liu, 2018). The goal of this study is to pinpoint which aspect of a gesturing pedagogical agent causes an improvement in learning from an online lesson. College students learned…

Yang, Chunliang; Chew, Siew-Jong; Sun, Bukuan; Shanks, David R. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Interim testing of studied information, compared with restudying or no treatment, facilitates subsequent learning and retention of new information--"the forward testing effect." Previous research exploring this effect has shown that interim testing of studied information from a given domain enhances subsequent learning and retention of…

Kim, Byoung Gwan; Shim, Hye Rin – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
This study investigated the optimal conditions under which foreign language learning takes place using a smartphone. The authors proposed that two factors, chunking and imagery, would increase language learning. On the basis of previous findings, they formulated three hypotheses: (a) the use of images will have a positive effect on learning…

Mathematics Teacher, 2019
Despite repeated discussions and practice, algebra students continue to make variable errors, in many ways, year after year. This same problem appeared thirty years ago in a list of common errors that math teachers today would immediately recognize, many involving exponents and distribution (Marquis 1988). Similar complaints even appeared in the…

Kleiman, Amanda M.; Potter, Jennifer F.; Bechtel, Allison J.; Forkin, Katherine T.; Dunn, Lauren K.; Collins, Stephen R.; Lyons, Genevieve; Nemergut, Edward C.; Huffmyer, Julie L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
With increasing medical knowledge, procedural, and diagnostic skills to learn, it is vital for educators to make the limited amount of teaching time available to students effective and efficient. Generative retrieval is an effective and efficient learning tool, improving long-term retention through the practice of retrieval from memory. Forty…

Yildirim, Gurkan; Yildirim, Serkan; Dolgunsoz, Emrah – World Journal on Educational Technology: Current Issues, 2019
Virtual reality (VR) as computer-mediated 3-D environments including real-life situations presented via different tools in which users can interact effectively with visuals. This study is significant as it primarily aimed to investigate effects of VR on retention by comparing it with traditional 2-D videos. The main aim of this study is to compare…

Chen, Tianxu – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Character learning is a key issue for second language (L2) Chinese learners. However, our understanding is limited regarding the extent to which the multilevel linguistic knowledge simultaneously works for learning characters, particularly for L2 compound character meaning retention. To fill these gaps, two research questions were addressed. (1)…
