Roblyer, M. D.; Davis, Lloyd; Mills, Steven C.; Marshall, Jon; Pape, Liz – American Journal of Distance Education, 2008
Two lines of research have emerged to study the causes and prevention of student failure in virtual (K-12) schools: studies of learner characteristics and studies of learning environment characteristics. To develop a useful model for predicting failure and promoting success in virtual school environments, a study was designed to measure the…

Mills, Steven C. – 2001
What is not fully understood about educational technology is how to transform computer technology into a powerful pedagogical tool. One way to address instructional issues associated with integrating computer technology in classrooms is to analyze educational best practices associated with technology integration in classrooms. Technology standards…

Mills, Steven C.; Tincher, Robert C. – 2002
A technology professional development initiative was launched in a school district with the goal of extending technology use in the classroom. For teachers to teach expertly, the aim was for them to "be the technology" by modeling technology use in the classroom, applying technology across the curriculum, applying technology to…

Mills, Steven C. – 2000
As the use of the Web is perceived to be an effective tool for dissemination of research findings for the provision of asynchronous instruction, the issue of accessibility of Web page information will become more and more relevant. The World Wide Web consortium (W3C) has recognized a disparity in accessibility to the Web between persons with and…

Mills, Steven C. – 1999
Schools cannot expect to obtain gains in learner achievement from computer technology if it is not properly implemented. The concerns of teachers in integrating computer technology in the classroom may impact how computer technology is ultimately implemented. This study examined the concerns of elementary school teachers implementing…

Mills, Steven C.; Ragan, Tillman J. – 1994
This paper examines a research paradigm that is particularly suited to experimentation-related computer-based instruction and integrated learning systems. The main assumption of the model is that one of the most powerful capabilities of computer-based instruction, and specifically of integrated learning systems, is the capacity to adapt…
