Palaigeorgiou, George; Papadopoulou, Anthea – Education and Information Technologies, 2019
Studies show that interactive educational video can reduce cognitive overload, guide viewers' attention, and trigger reflection; moreover, tablets can help students to increase self-directed learning, take ownership of the learning process, and collaborate with one another. In this study, we examine whether interactive video together with tablets…

Belland, Brian R.; Weiss, D. Mark; Kim, Nam Ju; Piland, Jacob; Gu, Jiangyue – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
In this study, we investigated how high school credit recovery students worked in small groups and used computer-based scaffolds to conduct scientific inquiry in a problem-based learning unit centered on water quality. We examined how students searched for and evaluated information from different sources, and used evidence to support their claims.…

Stieler-Hunt, Colleen; Jones, Christian – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
The benefits of using digital games in the curriculum are well documented in literature. Most teachers who use digital games use short-form drill-and-practice learning games rather than the kinds of games most students would choose to play in their free time. The use of more interactive, immersive digital games (IDGs) in classrooms tends to be…

Jurkiewicz, Melissa A.; Kirn, Adam; Crowther, David – Science and Children, 2019
Interactions with forces and energy can range from a toddler dropping toys repeatedly for someone else to pick up to a group of fifth graders playing soccer at recess. In addition, students may have observed the power of water to move physical objects by seeing news footage of rising floodwaters, experimenting with a garden hose, or spending a day…

Bess, Cassie – Science and Children, 2019
STEM is a commonly used acronym in today's education world. Parents hear the term and hope their child's school will be embracing it, teachers plan units encompassing it, even those outside the education realm have heard it and think it is important. But, do students actually understand the four disciplines and can they clearly express what they…

Pylman, Stacey – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
A great deal of teacher planning involves an invisible process of envisioning how plans might unfold in the classroom. Novice teachers can benefit from seeing how experienced teachers work through this process, but, too often, co-planning sessions between mentors and novices focus on selecting activities to fill out a lesson, rather than delving…
