Acuña, Santiago Roger; Aymes, Gabriela López; Medrano, Carlos Sergio López – International Journal of Higher Education, 2014
This paper analyzes the use of collaborative concept maps in multimedia learning tasks. Specifically, the effect of a cognitive aid (providing students a list of main concepts to generate a concept map) on the performance of collaborative concept mapping and on the level of collaboration in this task is discussed. The study was carried out with 57…

McDuffie, Andrea; Kover, Sara T.; Hagerman, Randi; Abbeduto, Leonard – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2013
Fast-mapping paradigms have not been used previously to examine the process of word learning in boys with fragile X syndrome (FXS), who are likely to have intellectual impairment, language delays, and symptoms of autism. In this study, a fast-mapping task was used to investigate associative word learning in 4- to 10-year-old boys with FXS relative…

Kotzé, Sanet Henriët; Mole, Calvin Gerald – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2015
At Stellenbosch University, South Africa, basic histology is taught to a combination class of almost 400 first-year medical, physiotherapy, and dietetic students. Many students often find the amount of work in basic histology lectures overwhelming and consequently loose interest. The aim was to determine if a draw-along mapping activity would…

Stonier, Francis; Teed, Kenneth; Westine, Carl – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
The use of surveys and GIS mapping allows one to more readily examine spatial relationships that may occur. Greater attention may be paid to understanding these clusters and develop better individualized interventions. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the bullying in a population of nearly 600,000 students who represent a population of…
