Peacock, Jeremy; Melville, Wayne – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Working from a historical perspective indicates that there are four periods over the last 170 years through which the role of the science chair has developed. This evolution has progressed from the administrative need to implement the agenda of the newly professionalised science of the nineteenth century, to a greater emphasis on the role of the…

Basal, Ahmet – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Collocations are word combinations essential for achieving fluency in a given language. Considerable emphasis should therefore be placed on teaching collocations as a part of vocabulary instruction in language teaching. However, there is no current consensus on how best to teach collocations, and few studies have addressed the issue. This…

Chiu, Mei-Hung; Liaw, Hongming Leonard; Yu, Yuh-Ru; Chou, Chin-Cheng – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Utilizing facial recognition technology, the current study has attempted to predict the likelihood of student conceptual change with decision tree models based on the facial micro-expression states (FMES) students exhibited when they experience conceptual conflict. While conceptual change through conceptual conflicts in science education is a…

Luik, Piret; Suviste, Reelika; Lepp, Marina; Palts, Tauno; Tõnisson, Eno; Säde, Merilin; Papli, Kaspar – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Learners who enrol in massive open online courses (MOOCs) have different backgrounds and tend to have different motivations than learners in traditional courses. Based on value-expectancy theory, an instrument was developed to measure motivation for enrolling in a programming MOOC. A study with 1229 adult participants in Estonian-language…

Terentev, Evgeniy; Maloshonok, Natalia – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
This paper aims to explore the response-order effects for rating questions presented in item-by-item and grid formats. It was hypothesized that the primacy effect occurs for both formats of questions, and that this effect is dependent on age, education, and type of device used for responding to questions. Two randomized experiments were conducted…

Stöhr, Christian; Stathakarou, Natalia; Mueller, Franziska; Nifakos, Sokratis; McGrath, Cormac – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Despite the emergence of massive open online courses (MOOCs) and the field of MOOC research, we have a limited understanding of the specific needs of different learner groups and how MOOCs can successfully address those needs. Video lectures and demonstrations are a central learning component of MOOCs. This paper contributes to the research…

Buil, Isabel; Catalán, Sara; Martínez, Eva – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Flow is a state of total absorption and concentration in an activity that is desirable for students, as it enhances the learning experience. Due to the importance of flow for learning, this research investigates the influence of three flow preconditions--namely balance of skill and challenge, feedback and goal clarity--on students' flow,…

Lange, Christopher; Costley, Jamie – Issues in Educational Research, 2019
Quality of instruction within media-rich environments is an important aspect of the online learning process. Instructors need to avoid the presentation of confusing content caused by diverse forms of media, which can induce higher levels of extraneous processing and negatively affect germane cognitive load. Maintaining high levels of germane load…

Montgomery, Amanda P.; Mousavi, Amin; Carbonaro, Michael; Hayward, Denyse V.; Dunn, William – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Blended learning (BL) is a popular e-Learning model in higher education that has the potential to take advantage of learning analytics (LA) to support student learning. This study utilized LA to investigate fourth-year undergraduates' (n = 157) use of self-regulated learning (SRL) within the online components of a previously unexamined BL…

Chen, Weiyun; Gu, Xiaoqing; Wong, Lung-Hsiang – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Due to the time constraint and lack of concise contextualized classroom behavior indicators, current typical primary school classroom behavior management practices are ad-hoc and lack historical data support. To circumvent these problems, we designed a tablet-based classroom behavior management system (CBMS) for a primary school setting. The CBMS…

Howard, Sarah K.; Thompson, Kate; Yang, Jie; Ma, Jun – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
There has been extensive investigation into factors affecting digital technology integration in learning and teaching, but the complexity of integration continues to elude understanding. Thus, questions about how digital technologies can be best used to support learning persist. This paper argues that methods designed to address complex systems…
