Wu, Sheng-Yi; Chen, Sherry Y.; Hou, Huei-Tse – Interactive Learning Environments, 2016
Concept maps can be used as a cognitive tool to assist learners' knowledge construction. However, in a concept map-based online discussion environment, studies that take into consideration learners' manipulative actions of composing concept maps, cognitive process among learners' discussion, and social knowledge construction at the same time are…

Wu, Sheng-Yi; Hou, Huei-Tse – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2015
Cognitive styles play an important role in influencing the learning process, but to date no relevant study has been conducted using lag sequential analysis to assess knowledge construction learning patterns based on different cognitive styles in computer-supported collaborative learning activities in online collaborative discussions. This study…

Cheng, Kun-Hung; Hou, Huei-Tse – Technology, Pedagogy and Education, 2015
Previous research regarding peer assessment has investigated the relationships between peer feedback and learners' performance. However, few studies investigate in-depth learning processes during technology-assisted peer assessment activities, particularly from affective, cognitive, and metacognitive perspectives. This study conducts a series of…

Lin, Peng-Chun; Hou, Huei-Tse; Wang, Shu-Ming; Chang, Kuo-En – Computers & Education, 2013
In recent years, social networking services (SNSs), for example, Facebook, have shown exponential growth in their number of users. Witnessing the popularity of these SNSs, educational researchers have also explored the potential educational value of using SNSs. Despite the few studies that have investigated learners' attitudes toward and the…
