Sung, Han-Yu; Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Wu, Po-Han; Lin, Dai-Qi – Interactive Learning Environments, 2018
Facilitating students' deep-strategy behaviors and positive learning performances of science inquiry is an important and challenging educational issue. In this study, a contextual science inquiry approach is proposed for developing a 3D experiential game to cope with this problem. To evaluate the impacts of the game on students' science learning…

Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Wu, Po-Han; Chen, Chi-Chang; Tu, Nien-Ting – Interactive Learning Environments, 2016
Augmented reality (AR) has been recognized as a potential technology to help students link what they are observing in the real world to their prior knowledge. One of the most challenging issues of AR-based learning is the provision of effective strategy to help students focus on what they need to observe in the field. In this study, a competitive…

Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Wu, Po-Han; Chen, Chi-Chang – Computers & Education, 2012
In this paper, an online game was developed in the form of a competitive board game for conducting web-based problem-solving activities. The participants of the game determined their move by throwing a dice. Each location of the game board corresponds to a gaming task, which could be a web-based information-searching question or a mini-game; the…

Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Wu, Po-Han; Ke, Hui-Ru – Computers & Education, 2011
Mobile and wireless communication technologies not only enable anytime and anywhere learning, but also provide the opportunity to develop learning environments that combine real-world and digital-world resources. Nevertheless, researchers have indicated that, without effective tools for helping students organize their observations in the field,…

Wu, Po-Han; Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Milrad, Marcelo; Ke, Hui-Ru; Huang, Yueh-Min – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2012
Concept maps have been widely employed for helping students organise their knowledge as well as evaluating their knowledge structures in a wide range of subject matters. Although researchers have recognised concept maps as being an important educational tool, past experiences have also revealed the difficulty of evaluating the correctness of a…

Wu, Po-Han; Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Su, Liang-Hao; Huang, Yueh-Min – Educational Technology & Society, 2012
The aim of nursing education is to foster in students the competence of applying integrated knowledge with clinical skills to the application domains. In the traditional approach, in-class knowledge learning and clinical skills training are usually conducted separately, such that the students might not be able to integrate the knowledge and the…

Tseng, Judy C. R.; Tsai, Wen-Ling; Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Wu, Po-Han – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2007
In developing traditional learning materials, quality is the key issue to be considered. However, for high technical e-training courses, not only the quality of the learning materials but also the efficiency of developing the courses needs to be taken into consideration. It is a challenging issue for experienced engineers to develop up-to-date…
