Chan, Kan Kan; Leung, Siu Wai – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2014
Dynamic geometry software (DGS) aims to enhance mathematics education. This systematic review and meta-analysis evaluated the quasi-experimental studies on the effectiveness of DGS-based instruction in improving students' mathematical achievement. Research articles published between 1990 and 2013 were identified from major databases according to a…

Bos, Beth – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2007
Teaching and learning mathematics with technology poses a unique dilemma. If technology is to enhance mathematical achievement (NCTM, 2000), why do documented studies indicate that this may not be the case (Waxman, Connell, & Gray, 2002)? This study looks at the learning environment used when teaching with technology. What in the instructional…

Chen, Hong-Ren; Chiang, Chih-Hao; Lin, Wen-Shan – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2013
With the rapid progress in information technology, interactive whiteboards have become IT-integrated in teaching activities. The theory of multiple intelligences argues that every person possesses multiple intelligences, emphasizing learners' cognitive richness and the possible role of these differences in enhanced learning. This study is the…

Kramarski, Bracha; Friedman, Sheli – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2014
The study examined how student control over metacognitive prompts in a multimedia environment affects students' ability to solve mathematical problems in immediate comprehension tasks using a multimedia program and a delayed-transfer test. It also examined the effect on metacognitive discourse, mental effort, and engagement with multimedia-based…

Kim, Sunha; Chang, Mido – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2010
The study explored the effects of computer use on the mathematical performance of students with special attention to ELL students. To achieve a high generalizability of findings, the study used a U.S. nationally representative database, the Early Childhood Longitudinal Survey Kindergarten Cohort (ECLS-K), and adopted proper weights. The study…

Adams, Deanne M.; Pilegard, Celeste; Mayer, Richard E. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2016
Learning physics often requires overcoming common misconceptions based on naïve interpretations of observations in the everyday world. One proposed way to help learners build appropriate physics intuitions is to expose them to computer simulations in which motion is based on Newtonian principles. In addition, playing video games that require…

Zendler, Andreas; Klaudt, Dieter – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2012
The significance of computer science for economics and society is undisputed. In particular, computer science is acknowledged to play a key role in schools (e.g., by opening multiple career paths). The provision of effective computer science education in schools is dependent on teachers who are able to properly represent the discipline and whose…

Sander, Elisabeth; Heiß, Andrea – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2014
Three different versions of a learning program on trigonometry were compared, a program controlled, non-interactive version (CG), an interactive, conflict inducing version (EG 1), and an interactive one which was supposed to reduce the occurrence of a cognitive conflict regarding the central problem solution (EG 2). Pupils (N = 101) of a…

Koehler, Matthew J.; Lehrer, Richard – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 1998
Describes the design of a hypermedia tool for helping preservice teachers learn about the growth and development of children's mathematical reasoning based on research in cognitive science, and discusses results of an experiment that used single-subject methodology to compare preservice teachers' learning with the hypermedia tool versus learning…

Waxman, Hersholt C.; Huang, Shwu-Yong L. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 1996
A study of middle school mathematics students concluded that classrooms using technology had less whole-class instruction and more independent work, and that students in classrooms using technology were on task more often than students who were not, supporting previous research that suggests technology use may change teaching from a…

Mevarech, Zemira R. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 1993
Describes a study of third-grade students in Israel that examined the differential effects of cooperative and individual computer-assisted instruction on mathematics achievement, amount of invested mental effort, academic recognition, and social acceptance of high and low achieving students. Theoretical and empirical implications are discussed,…

Hess, Robert D.; McGarvey, Linda J. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 1987
A study of the effects of microcomputer use in classrooms and homes on the growth of school-readiness skills of kindergartners used pre- and posttested experimental and control groups to assess reading readiness, mathematics readiness, Piagetian operations, and keyboard knowledge. Teacher implementation strategies and techniques used by nonreaders…

Yadrick, Robert M.; Regian, J. Wesley; Connolly-Gomez, Catherine; Robertson-Schule, Linda – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 1997
Compared performance of low-aptitude remedial adults learning to solve mathematics word problems. Participants worked either alone or as collaborative dyads and received instruction/practice using either the Word Problem-Solving Environment (WPSE), an exploratory system over which learners exercise control, or Solver, a structured and directive…

Johnson-Gentile, Kay; And Others – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 1994
Describes a study that investigated the effects of computer and noncomputer environments on fifth- and sixth-grade students' learning of geometric motions. The use of LOGO and the treatment of experimental and control groups are discussed, and the results of immediate and delayed posttests are reviewed. (38 references) (LRW)

Frick, Theodore W. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 1992
Discussion of expert systems and computerized adaptive tests describes two versions of EXSPRT, a new approach that combines uncertain inference in expert systems with sequential probability ratio test (SPRT) stopping rules. Results of two studies comparing EXSPRT to adaptive mastery testing based on item response theory and SPRT approaches are…
