Liang, T.-H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Various studies have found that electronic books (e-books) promote learning, but few works have examined the use of e-books along with an adaptive reading strategy for children. The current study implemented a method to extract keyword cues from e-books to support e-book reading with the read, recite and review (3R) strategy, and then examined the…

Coninx, Nele; Kreijns, Karel; Jochems, Wim – European Journal of Teacher Education, 2013
Literature shows that feedback that is specific, immediate and goal-oriented is effective on (pre-service) teachers' performance. Synchronous coaching gives this kind of feedback. Due to immediateness of feedback, pre-service teachers can suffer from cognitive load. We propose a set of standardised keywords through which this performance feedback…

Liu, Ming-Chi; Huang, Yueh-Min; Kinshuk; Wen, Dunwei – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2013
It is critical that students learn how to retrieve useful information in hypermedia environments, a task that is often especially difficult when it comes to image retrieval, as little text feedback is given that allows them to reformulate keywords they need to use. This situation may make students feel disorientated while attempting image…
