Ono, Mikoto; Hirose, Nobuyuki; Mori, Shuji – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2022
Introduction: Past studies have provided evidence that the effects of tactile stimulation on binocular rivalry are mediated by primitive features (orientation and spatial frequency) common in vision and touch. In this study, we examined whether such effects on binocular rivalry can be obtained through the roughness of naturalistic objects. In…

Greenslade, Thomas B., Jr. – Physics Teacher, 2021
In 1981 I published a note on "Balancers" as part of a series of illustrations drawn from 19th-century physics texts. Some months later a wonderful present arrived from a physics teacher in Japan, showing the range of our journal. This was the Horse and Rider Balancer in Fig. 1 that was just like the woodcut in my note. The little…

Skogsberg, KatieAnn – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
Many students struggle to understand the sometimes counterintuitive and complicated organization of the retina. As soon as they begin to grasp these complex relationships, we add another confusing concept: the organization of receptive fields of individual ganglion cells. Publishers provide figures in textbooks and videos, but like many topics in…

Dixon, Juli K.; Rutledge, Treshonda; Caton, Jennifer C.; Nolan, Edward C. – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2021
Finding ways for students to use manipulatives in a safe, yet collaborative, manner is a challenge the 2020-2021 school year introduced. Teachers scrambled to create a set of manipulatives for individual use on a budget so students could learn from home, in hybrid environments, or in socially distanced classrooms. This article presents a…

Terson de Paleville, Daniela G. L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2022
This article describes an assignment used in an undergraduate Advanced Exercise Physiology course for seniors. Students' backgrounds in chemistry varied from adequate to almost nonexistent. This presented several challenges for teaching and students' understanding of aerobic oxidation of a glucose molecule. This article presents an assignment for…

Chandrasekaran, Ramya; Radzi, Shairah; Kai, Peh Zhen; Rajalingam, Preman; Rotgans, Jerome; Mogali, Sreenivasulu Reddy – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2022
Due to the modernization of the medical curriculum and technological advancements, anatomy education has evolved beyond cadaveric dissection alone. Plastination techniques, three-dimensional (3D) modeling, and 3D printing technologies have progressively gained importance. However, there are limited valid and reliable surveys to evaluate students'…

Sarvanovic, Ana; Fredriksen, Biljana C. – Art Education, 2022
There is nothing new about teacher educators collaborating across Europe, but when the surging pandemic required extraordinary creativity in the spring of 2020, two art teachers in early childhood education (ECE) in Serbia and Norway--improvised by teaching with what they had on hand: short videos of the first author's son that simulated what…

Schifter, Deborah; Russell, Susan Jo – ZDM: Mathematics Education, 2022
This article addresses the nature of student-generated representations that support students' early algebraic reasoning in the realm of generalized arithmetic. We analyzed representations created by students for the following qualities: representations that distinguish the behavior of one operation from another, that support an explanation of a…

Hulac, David M.; Aspiranti, Kathleen; Kriescher, Stephanie; Briesch, Amy M.; Athanasiou, Michelle – Contemporary School Psychology, 2021
Fidget spinners have become popular worldwide, due not only to their popularity with children but also to the mental health claims made by those who advertise them. While a small number of previous research studies indicate that fidget spinners reduce on-task behavior, no research to date has evaluated their effect on student performance. The…

Soury-Lavergne, Sophie – Digital Experiences in Mathematics Education, 2021
The duo of artefacts is a simplified model of the complex systems of various manipulatives (either tangible or virtual) that mathematics teachers and their students use in classrooms. It offers a means to study the complexity of the interweaving of the tangible and of the digital worlds in the teaching and learning processes. A duo of artefacts is…

Samuelsson, Robin; Price, Sara; Jewitt, Carey – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2022
While interactive touchscreens are currently entering into educational practice, little is known about what this means for learning in early childhood and, in particular, how touchscreens shape action and communication. In this paper, we examine the interactions of 2-year-olds and their teachers in a multilingual preschool in Sweden. We analyse…

Arslan, Aysel; Kartal, Sebahattin – International Online Journal of Education and Teaching, 2022
The aim of this research is to determine the effect of activities in accordance with the Waldorf approach supported by the cooperative method on the early number assessment skills of 48-60-month-old children. The study, which was carried out in accordance with the quasi-experimental design with the control group, was planned as two activity hours…

Pap, Levente G. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
In early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic compelled the field of education to swiftly redesign courses for hybrid and online teaching environments. The lack of in-person learning prompted professionals to rapidly incorporate unique and previously never-seen teaching practices in numerous different fields. One of the biggest challenges that educators…

Marchak, Debora; Shvarts-Serebro, Inna; Blonder, Ron – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Using three-dimensional models in chemistry is a common teaching practice aimed at elevating the level of understanding of abstract concepts. However, the experience of using chemical models is still quite passive in terms of students' input, requiring the students to utilize mainly visual, auditory, and some tactile information processing…

Wares, Arsalan; Valori, Giovanna – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2021
In this note we describe the mathematics that emerges from the construction of an origami box. We first construct a simple origami box from two rectangular sheets and then discuss some of the mathematical questions that arise in the context of algebra, geometry and calculus.
