Rosen-O'Leary, Robin; Thompson, Eustace G. – Journal for Leadership and Instruction, 2019
The current focus on STEM education is based on the idea that science, technology, engineering and math be taught in an interdisciplinary and applied approach in grades K-12. There is growing attention to integrating the arts as an equal partner to STEM learning (STEAM). The purpose of this cluster random sample experimental study was to examine…

Orozco, Guadalupe – ProQuest LLC, 2019
Students with Learning Disabilities (LDs) have less extensive vocabularies than their typically developing peers (Simmons & Kameenui, 1990). This is a critical problem, as the importance of vocabulary knowledge in relation to reading comprehension is widely documented in the literature (Pearson & Gallagher, 1983; Stahl, 1983) and has been…

Oueini, Simela – ProQuest LLC, 2019
This purpose of this paper is to deepen the understanding for a problem of practice in the mathematics educators' classroom of low retention of information thus leading to poor mathematics achievement. The identification of the problem of practice led to a development of a research focus examining the effects of using intelligent tutoring software…

Bengtsson, Lars – Education Sciences, 2019
This work describes a systematic review of the research on take-home exams in tertiary education. It was found that there is some disagreement in the community about the virtues of take-home exams but also a lot of agreement. It is concluded that take-home exams may be the preferred choice of assessment method on the higher taxonomy levels because…

Choffin, Benoît; Popineau, Fabrice; Bourda, Yolaine; Vie, Jill-Jênn – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2019
Spaced repetition is among the most studied learning strategies in the cognitive science literature. It consists in temporally distributing exposure to an information so as to improve long-term memorization. Providing students with an adaptive and personalized distributed practice schedule would benefit more than just a generic scheduler. However,…

Von Hippel, Paul T. – Education Next, 2019
Every summer, the news is filled with stories about summer learning loss. The warnings sound dire: two months of math learning lost for most students every summer, and two to three months of reading learning lost for low-income students, according to the National Summer Learning Association. By the ninth grade, "summer learning loss during…

Leblebicioglu, G.; Abik, N. M.; Capkinoglu, E.; Metin, D.; Dogan, E. Eroglu; Cetin, P. S.; Schwartz, R. – Research in Science Education, 2019
Scientific inquiry is widely accepted as a method of science teaching. Understanding its characteristics, called Nature of Scientific Inquiry (NOSI), is also necessary for a whole conception of scientific inquiry. In this study NOSI aspects were taught explicitly through student inquiries in nature in two summer science camps. Students conducted…

Zambrano, Jimmy; Kirschner, Femke; Sweller, John; Kirschner, Paul A. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Collaborative learning is a widely used instructional technique, but factors determining its effectiveness still are unclear. Cognitive load theory was used to examine the effects of prior collaborative experience and density of distribution of information amongst learners on short-term retention and delayed retention tests, as well as cognitive…

Kaplan-Rakowski, Regina – Contemporary Educational Technology, 2019
Vocabulary is crucial for language learning. Therefore, searching for the most effective methods to master vocabulary is an important quest. This study investigated the effect of stereoscopic three-dimensional (S3D) images on recall and retention of foreign language vocabulary. S3D images, frequently used in virtual reality visualizations, are…

Fairfax, Emily; Brown, Megan R. M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
People with disabilities are chronically underrepresented in many geoscience departments across the country. There are a number of proposed reasons why this under-representation persists, one of which is lack of instructor training in designing accessible curriculum and making high-quality accommodations. This not only puts students with…

Nairne, James S.; Coverdale, Michelle E.; Pandeirada, Josefa N. S. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Four experiments investigated the mnemonic effects of generating survival situations. People were given target words and asked to generate survival situations involving that stimulus (e.g., DOOR: "I'm in a house that's on fire, and I can escape through the door"). No constraints were placed on the generation process, other than that it…

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…

Jordano-Kudalis, Leah – English Teaching Forum, 2019
Teach and Trade is a versatile vocabulary-building activity that the author's students love. It is designed to introduce key vocabulary in a learner-centered, engaging way and makes an upcoming unit or text more accessible. Learners become experts in one or two words and become familiar with most target words they subsequently come across. This…

Long, Ryan – Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2019
This paper outlines a method for student-directed creation of exam review guides. No answers or lists of required information are provided to students. Students must reflect on the purpose of the course and the relationships between the different content units in order to collaboratively compose a study guide. The professor then critiques the…
