Lippold, Matthias; Schulz-Hardt, Stefan; Schultze, Thomas – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2021
One benefit of working in groups is that group members can learn from each other how to perform the task, a phenomenon called group-to-individual transfer (G-I transfer). In the context of quantitative judgments, G-I transfer means that group members improve their individual accuracy as a consequence of exchanging task-relevant information. This…

Scarlett, Sarah Fayen; Lafreniere, Don; Trepal, Daniel J.; Arnold, John D. M.; Xie, Yichun – History Teacher, 2019
The investigation of time is at the heart of historians' pursuits. Many also recognize the importance of space, since the chronology of action and ideas necessarily occurs in the physical world. The conscious integration of time and space has found growing favor among scholars recently as the "spatial turn" has influenced research across…

Höhnle, Steffen; Fögele, Janis; Mehren, Rainer; Schubert, Jan Christoph – Journal of Geography, 2016
In spite of various actions, the implementation of GIS (geographic information systems) in German schools is still very low. In the presented research, teaching experts as well as teaching novices were presented with empirically based constraints for implementation stemming from an earlier survey. In the process of various group discussions, the…

Mzuza, Maureen Kapute; Van der Westhuizen, Christo – International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, 2020
Studies have been carried out on the use of geographical information systems (GIS) in teacher training, especially in the developed countries. In southern African countries, nevertheless, the scenario is different because GIS education appears to be a rather new field of study. This study therefore used systematic review to collect data. This…
