Ehsan, Hoda; Rehmat, Abeera P.; Cardella, Monica E. – Science and Children, 2019
Computational thinking can provide a basis for problem solving, for making evidence-based decisions, and for learning to code or create programs. Therefore, it is critical that all students across the K-12 continuum--including students in the early grades--have opportunities to begin developing problem solving and computational thinking skills.…

Galatsanou, Eleni – BU Journal of Graduate Studies in Education, 2017
A plethora of jobs for information and communication technology professionals is predicted for the future, and female students outnumber male students in tertiary education. Nevertheless, women are significantly underrepresented in the computer science field. Stereotyping and lack of interest, encouragement, exposure, confidence, and role models…

Agaoglu, Onur – Online Submission, 2014
It is crucial that gifted and talented students should be supported by different educational methods for their interests and skills. The science and arts centres (gifted centres) provide the Supportive Education Program for these students with an interdisciplinary perspective. In line with the program, an ICT lesson entitled "Computer…

Miller, Robert A.; Stenmark, Cheryl K.; van Ittersum, Kyle – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
Dual display desktop computers are becoming more prevalent in the home, workplace, and schools, yet there has been little research into how learning and productivity are impacted by having a second display. One useful method in exploring this question is to measure cognitive load during an intensive learning event. This study compared perceived…

Loar, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Instructional Research, 2018
Computer self-efficacy is associated with a variety of positive learning processes and outcomes. Despite historical attempts to measure computer self-efficacy, there are severe validity concerns apparent in the literature. In 2014, M. C. Howard developed the Computer Self-Efficacy Scale (CSES) with a focus on general computer use rather than…

Goode, Joanna; Johnson, Stephany Runninghawk; Sundstrom, Krystal – Professional Development in Education, 2020
As new efforts seek to expand computer science education across the globe, there has been a widespread effort to prepare school teachers for teaching computer science to culturally and racially diverse students. This effort to center diversity and equity is notable as computer science courses are typically homogenous in terms of race and gender,…

Fluck, Andrew E.; Ranmuthugala, Dev; Chin, C. K. H.; Penesis, Irene; Chong, Jacky; Yang, Yang; Ghous, Asim – Education and Information Technologies, 2020
The Calculus for Kids project was deliberately designed to use computers in the transformation of curriculum. The intervention used multi-media learning materials to assist teachers and Year 6 (aged 11-12 years) students understand the principles of integral calculus. They used Maple mathematics software to solve real-world problems using these…

Karabulut Coskun, Burcu; Askin Tekkol, Ilkay – Online Submission, 2018
The purpose of this study is to examine the conceptual framework of the changes in the curriculums of the Information Technologies course, which was started in 2006 and redeveloped in 2012 and 2018. These three curricula approved and implemented by the Board of Education within the Ministry of National Education in the survey will be examined by…

Pezold, Mollee J.; Imgrund, Caitlin M.; Storkel, Holly L. – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2020
Purpose: Although language sample analysis is widely recommended for assessing children's expressive language, few school-based speech-language pathologists routinely use it, citing a lack of time, resources, and training (Pavelko, Owens, Ireland, & Hahs-Vaughn, 2016). The purpose of this clinical tutorial is (a) to describe options for…

Davis, Marcia H.; Wang, Wenhao; Kingston, Neal M.; Hock, Michael; Tonks, Stephen M.; Tiemann, Gail – Grantee Submission, 2020
Background: The importance of reading motivation has led to the development of a large number of self-report reading motivation measures; however, there is still a need for a usable measure of adolescent reading motivation that captures a large number of theoretically and empirically distinct constructs. Methods: The current paper details the…

Erdem-Kara, Basak – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2019
Computer adaptive testing is an important research field in educational measurement, and simulation studies play a critically important role in CAT development and evaluation. Both Monte Carlo and Post Hoc simulations are frequently used in CAT studies in order to investigate the effects of different factors on test efficiency and to compare…
