Hsieh, Tung-Cheng; Wang, Tzone-I; Su, Chien-Yuan; Lee, Ming-Che – Educational Technology & Society, 2012
As a nearly global language, English as a Foreign Language (EFL) programs are essential for people wishing to learn English. Researchers have noted that extensive reading is an effective way to improve a person's command of English. Choosing suitable articles in accordance with a learner's needs, interests and ability using an e-learning system…

Chau, Kien Tsong; Samsudin, Zarina; Yahaya, Wan Ahmad Jaafar Wan – Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, 2018
Insignificant consideration in multimedia research has been given to the features that are associated with cognitive functioning in general, and working memory (WM) in particular for preschoolers. As correlational research works discovered a close association between WM and learning achievement, multimedia research works that are tapping into…

Fawns, Tim – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2015
Recent technological, cultural and economic factors have shifted the balance between recalling and reconstructing internalised information and accessing externalised information. While digital artefacts constitute an enormous and valuable set of resources, human engagement and reflection are important to the meaningful synthesis and application of…

Ma, Xingming; Luo, Yanping; Zhang, Lifeng; Wang, Jingqiu; Liang, Yaling; Yu, Hongjuan; Wu, Yufeng; Tan, Jiying; Cao, Mingqiang – Education Sciences, 2018
The application-based flipped classroom (APP-FC) is an innovative teaching-learning model that has not been applied and assessed in basic medical curricula teaching in China. The aim of this investigation is to assess students' perceptions to the APP-based flipped classroom (APP-FC) teaching model in an immunology course. The data of this study…

Noakes, Michaela Ann – ProQuest LLC, 2017
Traumatic Brain Injury outcomes vary by individual due to age at the onset of injury, the location of the injury, and the degree to which the deficits appear to be pronounced, among other factors. As an acquired injury to the brain, the neurophysiological consequences are not homogenous; they are as varied as the individuals who experience them.…

Kukolja Taradi, S.; Taradi, M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
The goal of the present study was to determine whether an active learning/teaching strategy facilitated with mobile technologies can improve students' levels of memory retention of key physiological concepts. We used a quasiexperimental pretest/posttest nonequivalent group design to compare the test performances of second-year medical students (n…

Deocampo, Joanne A.; Smith, Gretchen N. L.; Kronenberger, William G.; Pisoni, David B.; Conway, Christopher M. – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2018
Purpose: Statistical learning--the ability to learn patterns in environmental input--is increasingly recognized as a foundational mechanism necessary for the successful acquisition of spoken language. Spoken language is a complex, serially presented signal that contains embedded statistical relations among linguistic units, such as phonemes,…

Kraus, Nina – Journal of Communication Disorders, 2012
Auditory-based communication skills are developed at a young age and are maintained throughout our lives. However, some individuals--both young and old--encounter difficulties in achieving or maintaining communication proficiency. Biological signals arising from hearing sounds relate to real-life communication skills such as listening to speech in…

von der Linden, Nicole; Schneider, Wolfgang; Roebers, Claudia M. – Metacognition and Learning, 2011
Two studies were conducted to investigate whether context variations were suitable to improve metacognitive judgments in children in a complex, everyday memory task. In the first phase of each experiment, participants were shown a short event (video) and gave judgments-of-learning (JOLs), that is, rated their certainty that they would later be…

Bouton, Sophie; Bertoncini, Josiane; Serniclaes, Willy; Cole, Pascale – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2011
We assessed the reading and reading-related skills (phonemic awareness and phonological short-term memory) of deaf children fitted with cochlear implants (CI), either exposed to cued speech early (before 2 years old) (CS+) or never (CS-). Their performance was compared to that of 2 hearing control groups, 1 matched for reading level (RL), and 1…

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…

George, Daniel R.; Whitehouse, Peter J. – Gerontologist, 2011
In the therapeutic void created by over 20 failed Alzheimer's disease drugs during the past decade, a new marketplace of "brain fitness" technology products has emerged. Ranging from video games and computer software to mobile phone apps and hand-held devices, these commercial products promise to maintain and enhance the memory,…

Martin, Perrine; Velay, Jean-Luc – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2012
Nowadays, computer aided design (CAD) is widely used by designers. Would children learn to draw more easily and more efficiently if they were taught with computerised tools? To answer this question, we made an experiment designed to compare two methods for children to do the same drawing: the classical "pen and paper" method and a CAD…

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…
