Giang, Christian; Piatti, Alberto; Mondada, Francesco – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper presents a model for educational robotics tools and a corresponding set of heuristics for their development and evaluation specifically adapted to the needs and expectations in formal education settings. Background: The increased use of educational robots in classrooms, and the steadily growing number of alternatives from…

Kramer, Julia; Daly, Shanna R.; Yilmaz, Seda; Seifert, Colleen M.; Gonzalez, Richard – Advances in Engineering Education, 2015
This paper presents an analysis of engineering students' use of Design Heuristics as part of a team project in an undergraduate engineering design course. Design Heuristics are an empirically derived set of cognitive "rules of thumb" for use in concept generation. We investigated heuristic use in the initial concept generation phase,…

Krist, Christina; Schwarz, Christina V.; Reiser, Brian J. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Mechanistic reasoning, or reasoning systematically through underlying factors and relationships that give rise to phenomena, is a powerful thinking strategy that allows one to explain and make predictions about phenomena. This article synthesizes and builds on existing frameworks to identify essential characteristics of students' mechanistic…

Magana, Alejandra J.; Elluri, Sindhura; Dasgupta, Chandan; Seah, Ying Ying; Madamanchi, Aasakiran; Boutin, Mireille – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
In science and engineering education, the use of heuristics has been introduced as a way of understanding the world, and as a way to approach problem-solving and design. However, important consequences for the use of heuristics are that they do not always guarantee a correct solution. Learning by Design has been identified as a pedagogical…

Mtebe, Joel S. – Interactive Technology and Smart Education, 2019
Purpose: This study aims to investigate the factors that influence user experience (UX) of eLearning systems implemented in two institutions in Tanzania. Design/methodology/approach: The study adopted questionnaire consisting of Nielsen's heuristics and didactic metrics as pragmatic metrics and hedonic metrics followed by focus group discussions…

Vieira, Estela Aparecida Oliveira; da Silveira, Aleph Campos; Martins, Ronei Ximenes – Informatics in Education, 2019
This work presents a systematic review whose objective was to identify heuristics applicable to the evaluation of the usability of educational games. Heuristics are usability engineering methods that aim to detect problems in the use of a system during its development and/or when its interface is in interaction with the user. Therefore, applying…

Sherman, Derek R. – Journal of General Education, 2017
This article argues for classical education's trivium--grammar, logic, and rhetoric--and its step-by-step building of knowledge as a heuristic for general education courses. Specifically, courses must intertwine the four rhetorical acts of reading, writing, speaking, and listening to achieve a trivium-based heuristic. Current curricula, however,…

Nalls, Tommy Lee, Jr. – ProQuest LLC, 2019
Productive hiring practices can increase the opportunity that every student will be taught by an effective teacher. Integrity of hiring practices is sacrificed when decision-making models, methods, and protocols fall short due to improper implementation. To compensate for the lack of information generated from poor hiring resources and protocols,…

Kuzle, Ana – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2019
In a design-research project on problem-solving, theory-based and practice-oriented materials were developed with the goal of fostering systematical development of students' problem-solving competence in a targeted manner by learning heuristics. Special attention was given to working backward strategy, which has been shown difficult for students…

Strayhorn, Terrell L. – New Directions for Student Services, 2017
This chapter presents intersectionality as a useful heuristic for conducting research in higher education and student affairs contexts. Much more than just another theory, intersectionality can powerfully shape student affairs research in both obvious and tacit ways.

McLaughlin, Kevin; Eva, Kevin W.; Norman, Geoff R. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2014
Using heuristics offers several cognitive advantages, such as increased speed and reduced effort when making decisions, in addition to allowing us to make decision in situations where missing data do not allow for formal reasoning. But the traditional view of heuristics is that they trade accuracy for efficiency. Here the authors discuss sources…

Westbroek, Hanna B.; van Rens, Lisette; van den Berg, Ed; Janssen, Fred – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Assessment for learning (AfL) and differentiated instruction (DI) both imply a focus on learning processes and affect student learning positively. However, both AfL and DI prove to be difficult to implement for teachers. Two chemistry and two physics teachers were studied when designing and implementing the formative assessment of conceptual…

Stender, Peter – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
For students working on realistic complex modelling problems as autonomously as possible the support by a tutor is indispensable for the students. However, how this support can be realised is still a question that has not been sufficiently answered. Based on prior research, it turned out that teacher interventions based on heuristic strategies…

Johnson, Spencer T.; Ewbank, Ann Dutton – Knowledge Quest, 2018
One of the main responsibilities of school librarians is to teach students to evaluate the credibility of information. There is little evidence to suggest that students are being explicitly taught how to evaluate news obtained through social media. As avenues for giving and getting information evolve, so must ways of teaching students so that they…

Popp, Jacquelynn S.; Hoard, Jodi – Reading Teacher, 2018
Sourcing involves interrogating historical documents, asking questions about their attributes to determine their relation to the historical event or time period under study. In this article, a university researcher and a sixth-grade teacher describe a set of heuristics that the teacher developed for supporting her students' sourcing of historical…
