Jones, Anthony – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2016
This paper aims to clarify certain causes of the apparent reluctance of some classroom teachers to assist students to learn through the use computers.

Devi, Anamika – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2016
Very few studies have given attention to parental support for children's play-based conceptual development in a home setting. The key aspect of this paper is to investigate how parental support aids development of children's mathematical and science concepts in collective play in the home context and what happens to the play during parent-child…

Fletcher, Anna – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2016
Contemporary learning in Australia necessitates that students develop the capability to play an active role in their own learning. Yet, the student's role as an active agent in the learning process has not been fully examined. Drawing on the notion of assessment as generations informed by conflicting theoretical viewpoints, this paper explores how…

Powell, Sarah J. – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2016
This paper contemplates the way children exist, interact and intra-act with their worlds. It seeks to think differently about data and engages with the work of Deleuze, particularly grappling with his conception of 'becoming' and the ways in which children name their worlds and intra-act with natural entities. The paper emerged from conversations…

Fitzallen, Noleine; Wright, Suzie; Watson, Jane; Duncan, Bruce – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2016
Many children and adults have problems differentiating between heat and temperature. As a consequence, intuitive notions developed about the transfer of heat and other thermal concepts do not align with scientific explanations of the phenomena. These notions are formed as alternative conceptions, which are resistant to change and persist as…

Bowd, Justin; Bowles, Terry; McKenzie, Vicki – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2016
Recent reports based on PISA data have shown a generally positive relationship between the amount of time spent on homework and achievement, and a negative relationship between a measure of socioeconomic status and homework time for secondary students. These findings suggest that homework practices are either reflecting or contributing to…

Donovan, Michael – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2016
"The term 'research' is inextricably linked to European imperialism and colonialism. The word itself 'research' is probably one of the dirtiest words in the Indigenous world's vocabulary" (Smith, 1999, p. 1). For many Aboriginal communities educational research can be seen with suspicion. In Aboriginal education much of the research is…
