Ryve, Andreas; Hemmi, Kirsti – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
Theories for conceptualizing educational policies aimed at improving classroom instruction at scale are under development in the educational sciences. In using such theories, it is essential to note the specific educational context. In this article, we conceptualize the role of contextual factors when operationalizing Cobb and Jackson (2012)…

Nunez, Rafael – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2012
"The Journal of the Learning Sciences" has devoted this special issue to the study of embodied cognition (as it applies to mathematics), a topic that for several decades has gained attention in the cognitive sciences and in mathematics education, in particular. In this commentary, the author aims to address crucial questions in embodied…

Chase, Catherine C.; Connolly, Helena; Lamnina, Marianna; Aleven, Vincent – International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education, 2019
A successful instructional method is to engage learners with exploratory problem-solving before providing explanations of the canonical solutions and foundational concepts. A key question is whether and what type of guidance will lead learners to explore more productively and how this guidance will affect subsequent learning and transfer. We…

Bortz, Whitney Wall; Gautam, Aakash; Tatar, Deborah; Lipscomb, Kemper – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Integrating computational thinking (CT) and science education is complex, and assessing the resulting learning gains even more so. Arguments that assessment should match the learning (Biggs, "Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education," 21(1), 5-16. 1996; Airasian and Miranda, "Theory into Practice," 41(4), 249-254. 2002;…

Wawro, Megan – International Journal of Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education, 2015
A rich understanding of key ideas in linear algebra is fundamental to student success in undergraduate mathematics. Many of these fundamental concepts are connected through the notion of equivalence in the Invertible Matrix Theorem (IMT). The focus of this paper is the ways in which one student, Abraham, reasoned about solutions to Ax = 0 and Ax =…

Chin, Doris B.; Chi, Min; Schwartz, Daniel L. – Grantee Submission, 2016
A common approach for introducing students to a new science concept is to present them with multiple cases of the phenomenon and ask them to explore. The expectation is that students will naturally take advantage of the multiple cases to support their learning and seek an underlying principle for the phenomenon. However, the success of such tasks…

Belland, Brian R. – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2010
A critical step in problem-based learning (PBL) units occurs when groups present their solution to the central problem. This is challenging for middle school students because it involves the creation of an evidence-based argument (Krajcik et al., "Journal of the Learning Sciences" 7:313-350, 1998). Using a mixed method design, this study…

Martin, Taylor; Sherin, Bruce – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2013
The learning sciences community's interest in learning analytics (LA) has been growing steadily over the past several years. Three recent symposia on the theme (at the American Educational Research Association 2011 and 2012 annual conferences, and the International Conference of the Learning Sciences 2012), organized by Paulo Blikstein, led…

Clark, Douglas B.; D'Angelo, Cynthia M.; Schleigh, Sharon P. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2011
This study investigates the ongoing debate in the conceptual change literature between unitary and elemental perspectives on students' knowledge structure coherence. More specifically, the current study explores two potential explanations for the conflicting results reported by Ioannides and Vosniadou (2002)and diSessa, Gillespie, and Esterly…

van de Sande, Carla C.; Greeno, James G. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2012
We use a concept of framing to explain 3 cases in which participants initially lacked mutual understanding but then achieved significant mutual understanding. The cases were all consistent with a pattern of "positional framing" that includes a human participant who is inquiring, which we call a "listener", and a "source", which may be another…

Ürek, Handan – Journal of Science Learning, 2021
This study aimed to investigate Turkish pre-service teachers' awareness about electromagnetic radiation risks, which stem from diagnostic imaging at the hospitals and cell phone use in daily life. The study was based on survey research. A total of 138 education faculty students from the fields of Science Teaching [ST], Classroom Teaching [CT], and…

Kalemkus, Jale; Bayraktar, Sule; Çiftçi, Sabahattin – Journal of Science Learning, 2021
The purpose of this study is to investigate and compare the effects of laboratory experiments and argumentation-based science teaching on science process skills, metacognitive awareness levels, and attitudes towards the science of 4th-grade elementary school students. In this study conducted according to the quantitative research method, a…

Korkman, Nurullah; Metin, Mustafa – Journal of Science Learning, 2021
This study aims to specify the effect of inquiry-based collaborative learning and inquiry-based online collaborative learning methods on students' success and permanent learning. In this quantitative study, a pre-test post-test non-equalized control group model of quasi-experimental design has been used. The study's sample comprises 64 students,…

Saputra, Dedi; Gürbüz, Burcu; Haryani, Haryani – Journal of Science Learning, 2021
The use of smartphone technology with various operating system platforms and Android is also widely used in education. Various types of applications were created to support the learning process at school and outside of school. The purpose of this research is to create an alternative learning media in the form of an interactive animation…

Kolomuc, Ali; Karagölge, Zafer – Journal of Science Learning, 2021
This study compares the successes of numbers 94 7th grade students in science education with assessment-evaluation questions based on skill and acquisition. Assessment-evaluation achievement tests based on skill and acquisition were developed by researchers towards the measurement of force and acquisitions in friction units taking place in the…
