Gibbons, Jeffrey A.; Dunlap, Spencer; Friedmann, Emma; Dayton, Clare; Rocha, Gabriela – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2022
Unpleasant affect fades faster than pleasant affect, and this phenomenon is referred to as the fading affect bias (FAB). The FAB is moderated and mediated by many variables, including rehearsal and memory specificity, and researchers have emphasized the importance of memory for the FAB, but research has not evaluated the link of the FAB to…

Gibbons, Jeffrey A.; Dunlap, Spencer M.; LeRoy, Stephanie; Thomas, Taylor – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2021
Unpleasant affect fades faster than pleasant affect and this Fading Affect Bias (FAB) phenomenon is positively related to healthy outcomes and negatively related to unhealthy outcomes, which makes the FAB a healthy coping process/reaction. Rehearsal seems to be the cognitive mechanism responsible for the FAB. Although the FAB and its relation to…

Togou, Mohammed Amine; Lorenzo, Covadonga; Cornetta, Gianluca; Muntean, Gabriel-Miro – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2020
Contribution: The NEWTON fabrication laboratory (Fab Lab) Education Initiative assesses the effectiveness of Fab Lab-based learning on K-12 students' attitude toward learning science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM). It considers two aspects: (1) students' motivation and affective state and (2) students' observations and…

Zengel, Bettina; Lee, Ellen M.; Walker, W. Richard; Skowronski, John J. – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2019
The tendency for the affect associated with positive autobiographical events to fade less over time than the affect associated with negative autobiographical events (the fading affect bias, FAB) has been observed in a variety of contexts, but numerous mediators have been reported. This current study searches for the FAB, and for potential…

Gibbons, Jeffrey A.; Lee, Sherman A. – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2019
The fading affect bias (FAB) is defined by unpleasant affect fading faster than pleasant affect. The FAB persists across several cultures and event types, and it is positively related to healthy outcomes and negatively related to unhealthy outcomes. Although the notion of the FAB as a healthy process fits well with contemporary theoretical…

Love, Tyler S.; Roy, Ken R.; Marino, Matthew T. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
A strength of technology and engineering (T&E) education programs is that they provide a unique context for students with varying abilities to apply their knowledge and skills in nontraditional ways. These courses help prepare students with valuable skills needed for college and career readiness. Makerspaces, fab labs, and STEM labs often…

Knochel, Aaron D. – International Journal of Designs for Learning, 2017
Artist educators work in a great diversity of locations from informal community spaces to formal learning spaces in schools and museums. Art educators are exploring modes of transdisciplinary curriculum connecting art to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEAM) to meet the diverse challenges of making and learning. One of the roadblocks…

Tavernise, Assunta; Bertacchini, Francesca; Pantano, Pietro; Bilotta, Eleonora – Research on Education and Media, 2019
In this work, a Storytelling FabLab has been designed for the realization of virtual performances on a Shakesperian play in an elementary school. In this FabLab, many elements have been digitally manipulated: text, audio files, virtual actors on a 3D stage, and 3D Greek masks. Learning of contents and motivation have been assessed and compared to…

Pagano, John – Online Submission, 2015
This paper describes the FAB (Functionally Alert Behavior) Strategies approach to improve behavior in children and adolescents with complex behavioral challenges. FAB Strategies include evidence-based environmental adaptations, sensory modulation, positive behavioral support, and physical self-regulation strategies. FAB Strategies can be used by…

Longden, Alison; Monaghan, Tom; Mycroft, Lou; Kelly, Claire – Research in Post-Compulsory Education, 2018
A chance observation in a staff training session led to a series of action research projects, which dug into why some educators are digitally resistant whilst others, however experienced, are not. The Education and Training Foundation-funded "FAB Projects" have so far spanned three years and three small-scale research investigations and…

Chan, Monica M.; Blikstein, Paulo – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
This is a research study of design and engineering classes that use a problem-based learning (PBL) approach in digital fabrication makerspaces in two middle schools. In these studies, teachers employ a PBL approach and provide an ill-structured problem scenario to facilitate design and engineering lessons in the FabLab (fabrication laboratory).…

Dubriwny, Nicholas; Pritchett, Nathan; Hardesty, Michelle; Hellman, Chan M. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2016
Student self-confidence is important to any attempt to increase interest and achievement in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education. This study presents a longitudinal examination of Fab Lab Tulsa's impact on attitude and self-efficacy toward STEM education among middle-school aged students. Paired samples t-test showed a…

Love, Tyler S.; Tomlinson, Joel – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
Soldering is a useful and necessary process for many classroom, makerspace, Fab Lab, technology and engineering lab, and science lab activities. As described in this article, soldering can pose many safety risks without proper engineering controls, standard operating procedures, and direct instructor supervision. There are many safety hazards…

Crucitti, Joel; Hyde, Christian; Stokes, Mark A. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Previous studies measuring praxis abilities in young autistic children have only used praxis measures that were not optimised for autistic individuals. Hence, we used the FAB-R to measure praxis skills in autistic (n = 38) and typically developing (TD) children (n = 38) aged between four and 10 years. Praxis abilities were generally not different…
