Forrester, Tricia; Sandison, Carolyn E.; Denny, Sue – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
Excellent mathematics teachers establish learning environments that encourage students to actively engage with mathematics and foster co-operative and collaborative learning. Whiteboarding, using an erasable surface on which to work and share ideas, has been shown to increase student engagement, collaboration, and higher-order thinking. We report…

Kunnathodi, Abdul Gafoor; Sarabi, M. K. – Online Submission, 2017
Taking the premise that construction or meaning making largely depends on the existing knowledge and experience, this paper uses an analogy of learning the culinary art and learning to teach. This paper attempts to clarify the characteristics of signature pedagogy of teacher education focusing on the threshold concept of constructivism by using…

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…

Sullivan, Peter; Aulert, Amanda; Lehmann, Alli; Hislop, Brendan; Shepherd, Owen; Stubbs, Alan – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
While there are many considerations for effective mathematics teachers, one key factor is the development of a classroom culture that supports the desired form of learning. In examining the opportunities and constraints associated with posing challenging tasks, we are exploring ways that teachers might influence classroom culture positively. The…

Wong, Kelvin; Neves, Ana; Negreiros, Joao – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2017
University students in Macao are required to attend computer literacy courses to raise their basic skills levels and knowledge as part of their literacy foundation. Still, teachers frequently complain about the weak IT skills of many students, suggesting that most of them may not be benefiting sufficiently from their computer literacy courses.…

O'Hare, Liam; Connolly, Paul; Biggart, Andy – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
This paper explores the potential for book-gifting programs to initiate cooperative learning between a dynamic whole group composed of children, parents and teachers. It uses the results from a series of book-gifting program evaluations (three Randomized Controlled Trials with N=1694 participants in total) and investigates whether the pattern of…

Silveira Sonego, Anna Helena; Rocha Machado, Leticia; Wildt Torrezzan, Cristina Alba; Behar, Patricia Alejandra – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2016
This article aims to outline different pedagogical strategies with applications (apps) in the classroom. Every year the use of mobile devices like tablets and smartphones increases. At the same time, applications are being developed to meet this demand. It is therefore essential that educators investigate their use as an motivational technological…

Frederiksen, Karen-Margrete; Laursen, Katja Årosin –, 2015
This paper presents our reflections on developing the Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) course "Danish for knowledge workers--labour market-related Danish." As defined by Laursen and Frederiksen (2015), knowledge workers are "highly educated people who typically work at universities, at other institutions of higher…

Ebaeguin, Marlon; Stephens, Max – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
This study makes a comparison between what literature on Japanese Lesson Study suggests are key elements of a good mathematics lesson and what junior high school mathematics teachers in Japan value in planning their lessons. The teachers' strong consensus in their endorsements of these key elements explains why Japanese teachers strongly support…
