Munson, Ashlyn; Moskal, Barbara; Harriger, Alka; Lauriski-Karriker, Tonya; Heersink, Daniel – Computers & Education, 2011
Research indicates that students often opt out of computing majors due to a lack of prior experience in computing and a lack of knowledge of field-based job opportunities. In addition, it has been found that students respond positively to new subjects when teachers and counselors are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area. The summer…

Kim, Yanghee; Wei, Quan – Computers & Education, 2011
This study examined the impact of learners' attributes (gender and ethnicity) on their choice of a pedagogical agent and the impact of the attributes and choice on their perceptions of agent affability, task-specific attitudes, task-specific self-efficacy, and learning gains. Participants were 210 high-school male and female, Caucasian and…

Chang, Ling-Chian; Lee, Greg C. – Computers & Education, 2010
Project-based learning (PBL) is a highly effective means of motivating students to learn independently. However, training or encouraging teachers to practice PBL in their classrooms is challenging, especially if the educational system does not accommodate creative teaching practices. In particular, in a test-driven educational system, time…

Tomai, Manuela; Rosa, Veronica; Mebane, Minou Ella; D'Acunti, Alessia; Benedetti, Maura; Francescato, Donata – Computers & Education, 2010
The general aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that students belonging to a school online community would show higher levels of both offline bridging and bonding social capital than a control group of students, not using the online community. We further hypothesized that the more students used the online community the higher their level…

Liu, I-Fan; Chen, Meng Chang; Sun, Yeali S.; Wible, David; Kuo, Chin-Hwa – Computers & Education, 2010
An online learning community enables learners to access up-to-date information via the Internet anytime--anywhere because of the ubiquity of the World Wide Web (WWW). Students can also interact with one another during the learning process. Hence, researchers want to determine whether such interaction produces learning synergy in an online learning…
