Schiefer, Julia; Oschatz, Kerstin; Golle, Jessika; Trautwein, Ulrich; Tibus, Maike – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
Research on scientific reasoning plays an essential role at the intersection of cognitive development and science education. As only few paper-pencil-tests exist to assess scientific reasoning abilities of elementary school children, the goal of the current study was the development of a new reliable and valid instrument. We focused on the…

Thalmann, Stefan; Maier, Ronald – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2017
Knowledge transfer between employees is a primary concern in organizations. Employees create or acquire content that partially represents knowledge. These knowledge elements are specific to the context in and for which they are created and rarely address the learning needs of other employees in other work situations. Organizations therefore need…

Primus, Dirk J.; Sonnenburg, Stephan – Creativity Research Journal, 2018
The flow experience can be an important precursor to high levels of creativity and innovation. Prior work has identified and conceptualized the key elements of the flow experience in cocreative activities as individual flow corridor, individual flow feeling, and group flow. Surprisingly, the flow experience is underrepresented in theory and…

Meinel, Christoph; Schweiger, Stefanie – Education Sciences, 2016
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have seen enormous growth throughout the last four years. This format has fundamentally enriched the traditional method of web-based teaching and e-learning. Nevertheless, there have always been skeptical voices who announce the "death of MOOCs". We do not believe in this pessimistic scenario and in…

Reitz, Liesa; Sohny, Aline; Lochmann, Gerrit – International Journal of Game-Based Learning, 2016
The authors present a novel way of oral language training by embedding the English as a foreign language (EFL) learning process into a generic 3D Cooperative Virtual Reality (VR) Game. Due to lack of time, resources and innovation, the language classroom is limited in its possibilities of promoting authentic communication. Therefore, the…

Berger, Roland; Hänze, Martin – International Journal of Science Education, 2015
We assessed the impact of expert students' instructional quality on the academic performance of novice students in 12th-grade physics classes organized in an expert model of cooperative learning ("jigsaw classroom"). The instructional quality of 129 expert students was measured by a newly developed rating system. As expected, when…

Kärner, Tobias; Sembill, Detlef; Aßmann, Christian; Friederichs, Edgar; Carstensen, Claus H. – Frontline Learning Research, 2017
The investigation of learning processes by assessing students' experience along with objective characteristics within a classroom context has a long tradition in empirical learning process research (e.g. Sembill, 1984 et passim; Wild & Krapp, 1996). However, most of the existing studies confine themselves to psychological variables that seem…
