Zhang, Zhenxue – ProQuest LLC, 2013
Blessed by the Internet age, many online retailers (e.g., Amazon.com) have deployed recommender systems to help their customers identify products that may be of their interest in order to improve cross-selling and enhance customer loyalty. Collaborative Filtering (CF) is the most successful technique among different approaches to generating…

Saljo, R. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2010
The purpose of this article is to offer some reflections on the relationships between digital technologies and learning. It is argued that activities of learning, as they have been practised within institutionalized schooling, are coming under increasing pressure from the developments of digital technologies and the capacities to store, access and…

Brandmark, Allison; Byrne, Meredith; O'Brien, Karly; Hogan, Kate; Daniel, David B.; Jakobsen, Krisztina V. – Teaching of Psychology, 2020
Translational research--a bridge between research in more controlled settings and application in more complex contexts--is an essential step in developing effective evidence-based practices. Yet, it is rare. Previous lab-based research has recommended wakeful rest (WR)--a relaxed state of mind in the absence of activity--as a classroom…

Portowitz, Adena; Peppler, Kylie A.; Downton, Mike – International Journal of Music Education, 2014
This article reports on the practice and evaluation of a music education model, In Harmony, which utilizes new technologies and current theories of learning to mediate the music learning experience. In response to the needs of twenty-first century learners, the educational software programs Teach, Learn, Evaluate! and Impromptu served as central…

Baños, Rocío – Interpreter and Translator Trainer, 2021
This paper sets out to bridge the gap between theory and practice by suggesting activities and resources that could be used in the audiovisual translation (AVT) classroom when training students to achieve credible and natural-sounding dialogue in dubbing. Following a competence- and task-based approach, these activities have been implemented by…

Hussaini, Syed Abid; Bogusch, Lisa; Landgraf, Tim; Menzel, Randolf – Learning & Memory, 2009
Sleep-like behavior has been studied in honeybees before, but the relationship between sleep and memory formation has not been explored. Here we describe a new approach to address the question if sleep in bees, like in other animals, improves memory consolidation. Restrained bees were observed by a web camera, and their antennal activities were…

Kosmas, Panagiotis; Ioannou, Andri; Retalis, Symeon – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
From an embodied learning perspective, the active human body can alter the function of the brain and therefore, the cognitive process. In this work, children's activity using motion-based technology is framed as an example of embodied learning. The present investigation focuses on the use of a series of Kinect-based educational games by 31…

Lu, Owen H. T.; Huang, Anna Y. Q.; Tsai, Danny C. L.; Yang, Stephen J. H. – Educational Technology & Society, 2021
Human-guided machine learning can improve computing intelligence, and it can accurately assist humans in various tasks. In education research, artificial intelligence (AI) is applicable in many situations, such as predicting students' learning paths and strategies. In this study, we explore the benefits of repetitive practice of short-answer…

So, Wing Chee; Chen-Hui, Colin Sim; Wei-Shan, Julie Low – Language and Cognitive Processes, 2012
Abundant research has shown that encoding meaningful gesture, such as an iconic gesture, enhances memory. This paper asked whether gesture needs to carry meaning to improve memory recall by comparing the mnemonic effect of meaningful (i.e., iconic gestures) and nonmeaningful gestures (i.e., beat gestures). Beat gestures involve simple motoric…

Fournier-Viger, Philippe; Faghihi, Usef; Nkambou, Roger; Nguifo, Engelbert Mephu – Educational Technology & Society, 2010
We propose to mine temporal patterns in Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) to uncover useful knowledge that can enhance their ability to provide assistance. To discover patterns, we suggest using a custom, sequential pattern-mining algorithm. Two ways of applying the algorithm to enhance an ITS's capabilities are addressed. The first is to…

Colelli, Richard – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2011
Every public school teacher's professional career will eventually come to an end, but the natural process of reflecting on one's career will last the rest of his/her life. When that time arrives to reflect, the author would like to have good memories and extreme pride of accomplishment both for himself and his students. As most people know,…

Eglington, Luke G.; Pavlik, Philip I., Jr. – Grantee Submission, 2020
Decades of research has shown that spacing practice trials over time can improve later memory, but there are few concrete recommendations concerning how to optimally space practice. We show that existing recommendations are inherently suboptimal due to their insensitivity to time costs and individual- and item-level differences. We introduce an…

Goldfus, Carol; Karny-Tagger, Anit – LEARNing Landscapes, 2017
Education changes the brain. The purpose of this meta-review is to afford teachers access to the most up-to-date research regarding principal neuro-processes of adolescent development and behavior to improve students' well-being and motivation in the classroom. This includes facets such as emotional, social, risk and reward mechanisms, stressors,…

Furtado, Pedro Gabriel Fonteles; Hirashima, Tsukasa; Hayashi, Yusuke – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2019
Computer-assisted concept map building from provided pieces by using Kit-build is an activity which can promote comprehension and retention. However, users are burdened with searching for pieces and organizing the layout, which are believed to increase the overall cognitive load of the activity. In this paper, we describe the Airmap interface,…
