Arquero, José L.; del Barrio-García, Salvador; Romero-Frías, Esteban – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2017
Our study analyzes an educational experience based on the integrated use of social media within a higher education course under a personal learning environment approach and investigates the factors that determine students' loyalty to social media learning. We examined the moderating role of need for cognition (NFC) in students' formation of…

Jang, Eunice Eunhee; Lajoie, Susanne P.; Wagner, Maryam; Xu, Zhenhua; Poitras, Eric; Naismith, Laura – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2017
Technology-rich learning environments (TREs) provide opportunities for learners to engage in complex interactions involving a multitude of cognitive, metacognitive, and affective states. Understanding learners' distinct learning progressions in TREs demand inquiry approaches that employ well-conceived theoretical accounts of these multiple facets.…

Ou-Yang, Fang Chuan; Wu, Wen-Chi Vivian – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2017
To achieve better adaptive learning for mobile-assisted language learning (MALL), individual prior knowledge proficiency, perceptual learning style, and learning behavior should all be considered in system development. While reviewing the existing literature about MALL research, the researchers of this study found very few recent studies exploring…

Vayre, Emilie; Vonthron, Anne-Marie – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2017
The aim of this study is to test a model of online learners' engagement, which integrates social support (from teachers, peers, and family members) and sense of community as direct and indirect factors, with academic self-efficacy playing a mediating role. Survey results based on a questionnaire administered to 255 students enrolled in an online…

Seifried, Eva; Lenhard, Wolfgang; Spinath, Birgit – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2017
Writing essays and receiving feedback can be useful for fostering students' learning and motivation. When faced with large class sizes, it is desirable to identify students who might particularly benefit from feedback. In this article, we tested the potential of Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) for identifying poor essays. A total of 14 teaching…

Park, Juhwa; Cho, Kwangsu – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2017
Previous research has shown the effectiveness of peer reviewing on the improvement of writing quality. However, the fact that students themselves, arguably novices, judged the improvement leads to concerns about the validity of peer reviewing. We measured writing quality before and after peer reviewing using Coh-Metrix, which computationally…

Ioannou, Andri; Vasiliou, Christina; Zaphiris, Panayiotis – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2016
In this study, we enhanced a problem-based learning (PBL) environment with affordable, everyday technologies that can be found in most university classrooms (e.g., projectors, tablets, students' own smartphones, traditional paper-pencil, and Facebook). The study was conducted over a 3-year period, with 60 postgraduate learners in a human-computer…

Li, Xiaojie; Yang, Xianmin – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2016
Learning concentration deserves in-depth investigation in the field of mobile learning. Therefore, this study examined the interaction effects of learning styles and interest on the learning concentration and academic achievement of students who were asked to learn conceptual knowledge via their mobile phones in a classroom setting. A total of 92…

Li, Kun; Li, Yanju; Franklin, Teresa – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2016
This study examined four factors that influence preservice teachers' intentions to adopt technology in classrooms based on the Theory of Planned Behavior and Technology Acceptance Model. These four factors--technology self-efficacy, attitudes toward technology, perceived ease of use of technology, and perceived barriers of technology…

Alrasheedi, Muasaad; Capretz, Luiz Fernando; Raza, Arif – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2016
Mobile learning (m-Learning) is considered to be one of the fastest growing learning platforms. The immense interest in m-Learning is attributed to the incredible rate of growth of mobile technology and its proliferation into every aspect of modern life. Despite this, m-Learning has not experienced a similar adoption rate in the education sector,…

List, Alexandra; Grossnickle, Emily M.; Alexander, Patricia A. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2016
To complete any academic tasks using information from the Internet, undergraduate students first have to select the appropriate sources. However, the types of justifications that undergraduates provide for source selection and how these justifications may be impacted by task characteristics have been underexamined. This study explored…

Contreras-Higuera, Williams E.; Martínez-Olmo, Francesc; Rubio-Hurtado, M. José; Vilà-Baños, Ruth – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2016
This article presents a study with a twofold research aim: (a) to ascertain university students' perceptions on two combined assessment tools (e-portfolios and formative rubrics) and (b) to identify if among students there were differing perceptions on the use of e-portfolios, and what factors favored acceptance of these. The data gathering method…
