Hoda, Rashina; Babar, Muhammad Ali; Shastri, Yogeshwar; Yaqoob, Humaa – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2017
Global software engineering education (GSEE) is aimed at providing software engineering (SE) students with knowledge, skills, and understanding of working in globally distributed arrangements so they can be prepared for the global SE (GSE) paradigm. It is important to understand the challenges involved in GSEE for improving the quality and…

Attorps, Iiris; Björk, Kjell; Radic, Mirko – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
In this paper, we report a teaching experiment regarding the theory of polynomial approximations at the university mathematics teaching in Sweden. The experiment was designed by applying Variation theory and by using the free dynamic mathematics software GeoGebra. The aim of this study was to investigate if the technology-assisted teaching of…

Ehrlin, Anna; Insulander, Eva; Sandberg, Anette – Australian Journal of Teacher Education, 2016
The purpose of this study is to examine how students on a teacher education programme interpret entrepreneurial learning. The study was performed in Sweden, based on a design theoretical and multimodal perspective on learning and communication which provides the basis for how we understand learning processes in early teacher education. The sample…

Marklund, Björn Berg; Backlund, Per; Dahlin, Carl-Johan; Engström, Henrik; Wilhelmsson, Ulf – International Journal of Game-Based Learning, 2014
An important factor for success in project-based learning (PBL) is that the involved project groups establish an atmosphere of social interaction in their working environment. In PBL-scenarios situated in distributed environments, most of a group's work-processes are mediated through the use of production-focused tools that are unconcerned with…

Stolpe, Karin; Bjorklund, Lars – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2013
This study aims to investigate the science content remembered by biology students 6 and 12 months after an ecology excursion. The students' memories were tested during a stimulated recall interview. The authors identified three different types of memories: "recall," "recognition" and "narratives." The "dual…

Brante, Eva Wennås; Olander, Mona Holmqvist; Nyström, Marcus – Journal of Visual Literacy, 2013
Multimodal learning materials are frequently met in education assuming enhanced learning outcomes. This study examined whether contrasts in such materials are likely to support reading comprehension for all readers. Young adults (n = 46) met either text-only or text+picture material. Participants (19 with low phonological awareness [PA] and 27…

Boustedt, Jonas – Computer Science Education, 2012
The software industry needs well-trained software designers and one important aspect of software design is the ability to model software designs visually and understand what visual models represent. However, previous research indicates that software design is a difficult task to many students. This article reports empirical findings from a…

Broman, D.; Sandahl, K.; Abu Baker, M. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2012
Teaching larger software engineering project courses at the end of a computing curriculum is a way for students to learn some aspects of real-world jobs in industry. Such courses, often referred to as capstone courses, are effective for learning how to apply the skills they have acquired in, for example, design, test, and configuration management.…
