Park, Jungho – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
Much research has been conducted in educational robotics, a new instructional technology, for K-12 education. However, there are arguments on the effect of robotics and limited empirical evidence to investigate the impact of robotics in science learning. Also most robotics studies were carried in an informal educational setting. This study…

Kaya, Erdogan; Newley, Anna; Deniz, Hasan; Yesilyurt, Ezgi; Newley, Patrick – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Engineering has become an important subject in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), which have raised engineering design to the same level as scientific inquiry when teaching science disciplines at all levels. Therefore, preservice elementary teachers (PSTs) need to know how to integrate the engineering design process (EDP) into their…

Chung, C. J. ChanJin; Cartwright, Christopher; Cole, Matthew – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2014
Robotics competitions for K-12 students are popular, but are students really learning and improving their STEM scores through robotics competitions? If not, why not? If they are, how much more effective is learning through competitions than traditional classes? Is there room for improvement? What is the best robotics competition model to maximize…

Hodges, Charles B.; Gale, Jessica; Meng, Alicia – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2016
This study was conducted to investigate eighth-grade science teachers' self-efficacy during the implementation of a new, problem-based science curriculum. The curriculum included applications of LEGO┬« robotics, a new technology for these teachers. Teachers' responded to structured journaling activities designed to collect information about their…

McDonald, Susan; Howell, Jennifer – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2012
This paper describes the use of robotics in an Early Years classroom as a tool to aid the development of technological skills in a creative environment rich with literacy and numeracy opportunities. The pilot project illustrates how a three-phase process can result in the development of: (1) emergent literacy and numeracy, (2) digital access for…

Welch, Anita; Huffman, Douglas – School Science and Mathematics, 2011
This study was designed to examine the impact of participating in an after-school robotics competition on high school students' attitudes toward science. Specifically, this study used the Test of Science-Related Attitude to measure students' social implications of science, normality of scientists, attitude toward scientific inquiry, adoption of…

Lee, Daniel; Spear, Rita; Kero, Patty – Online Submission, 2017
Students are accessing graduate study online in ever-increasing numbers with interactive experiences differing from those who traditionally enroll in corresponding face-to-face (F2F) classes. Soft skills such as collaboration/teamwork, communication and presentation are important to learning but difficult to practice outside the F2F environment.…

Franklin, Robin Kesterson; O'Neill Mitchell, Justin; Walters, Kari Siko; Livingston, Beth; Lineberger, Matthew Blake; Putman, Cynthia; Yarborough, Reba; Karges-Bone, Linda – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
Based on requirements to promote for reflective practice, both CAEP and edTPA suggest adding a video component to clinical practice. This qualitative pilot study evaluated "Swivl" as that potential recording technological device for clinical practice. During a clinical practice cycle at a private university in the southeastern region of…

Major, Louis – Online Submission, 2010
Teaching computer programming to novices is a difficult task due to the complex nature of the subject, as negative stereotypes are associated with programming and because introductory programming courses often fail to encourage student understanding. This Protocol outlines the plan that is to be followed in order to investigate the effectiveness…

Hecht, Jeffrey B. – 1997
Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) allow users a small profile, battery-operated, and relatively low-cost way to take many of the capabilities of a personal computer into the field. This combination of features suggests a great potential for the use of a PDA as a field data collection instrument. This research compared the use of one kind of PDA…

Stohlmann, Micah S. – European Journal of STEM Education, 2017
Internationally mathematical modeling is garnering more attention for the benefits associated with it. Mathematical modeling can develop students' communication skills and the ability to demonstrate understanding through different representations. With the increased attention on mathematical modeling, there is a need for more curricula to be…
