Xu, Di; Glick, Danny; Rodriguez, Fernando; Cung, Bianca; Li, Qiujie; Warschauer, Mark – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Despite steady investment in English language education made by developing countries over the past few decades, results continue to be constrained by lack of high-quality instructors and language learning resources. Thus, using technology in language instruction has increasingly been recognized as a potential approach for addressing these…

Mertala, Pekka – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Ubiquitous computing (ubicomp) and the Internet of things (IoT) are turning into everyday household technology at an ever-increasing pace, for example, in the form of connected toys. However, while ubicomp and IoT are changing and shaping children's digital and technological landscape, not much is known about how children perceive these…

Chen, Beyin; Hwang, Gwo-Haur; Lin, Tze-Shiun – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Past research has pointed out that a good grouping strategy can improve the learning effectiveness of collaborative learning. However, the grouping strategy adopted in most past research is static grouping. This results in some disadvantages. Therefore, this study developed an item bank-based collaborative practice system and proposed a dynamic…

Debevc, Matjaž; Weiss, Jernej; Šorgo, Andrej; Kožuh, Ines – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Traditional methods of learning solfeggio (music theory) generally do not take advantage of computer-based support, meaning that, when learning individually, students cannot receive instantaneous feedback on their activities. The aim of this study is to examine the effectiveness of an interactive mobile application, mySolfeggio, for learning…

Dohn, Niels Bonderup – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
The ability to code computer programs is considered an important part of literacy in today's society. This paper reports from a case study in two sixth-grade classes where Scratch coding was part of six mathematics lessons. The aim of the study was to investigate how Scratch coding affected students' interest development in coding and in…

Theelen, H.; Willems, M. C.; van den Beemt, A.; Conijn, R.; den Brok, P. – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
This study investigated to what extent virtual internships in teacher education were able to reduce Preservice Teachers' (PSTs) professional anxiety. Simultaneously, this study investigated how virtual internships in blended learning environments were evaluated by PSTs in terms of technological, social and educational affordances. PSTs followed…

Buil, Isabel; Catalán, Sara; Martínez, Eva – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
This research draws on the self-system model of motivational development to explain how the use of business simulation games in class facilitates students' engagement and enhances their learning. Based on a survey of 360 undergraduate students who played a business simulation game in a marketing course, the findings show that students' perceptions…

Zheng, Xiao-Li; Kim, Hoi-Soo; Lai, Wen-Hua; Hwang, Gwo-Jen – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
In recent years, most studies on flipped classrooms or flipped learning have focused on learners' motivation, academic achievement and teachers' and students' perceptions of the flipped classroom. Little research has involved interactions in the flipped classroom. This study aims to show that in-class collaborative learning in the flipped…

Marquès Puig, Joan Manuel; Daradoumis, Thanasis; Calvet Liñan, Laura; Arguedas, Marta – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
This work presents an automated assessment tool for online distributed programming, called DSLab. It is a web-based environment that provides a transparent deployment and execution of assignments in remote computers, a transparent initialization and the possibility to add new logs by the students. DSLab has been evaluated in a real distributed…

Goshtasbpour, Fereshte; Swinnerton, Bronwen; Morris, Neil Peter – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Previous research on xMOOC pedagogy has established that learner interactions in discussion forums play a fundamental role in learning. However, little is known about the extent to which MOOC instructors engage with learner conversations and the impact this has on learner engagement. Adopting a novel design, this study went beyond self-reported…

Bird, Jo – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Early childhood settings value play as the way young children learn and educators encourage children's re-enactment of cultural practices in the imaginative play spaces provided. From a cultural-historical perspective, children expect these imaginative play spaces to contain objects from their social contexts, but what happens when technologies…

Lowrie, Tom; Larkin, Kevin – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
This paper presents an heuristic that underpinned the development of a range of early years applications (apps) as part of the Early Learning Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Australia (ELSA) project (2016-19). The heuristic was developed to address a range of challenges that accompany the use of digital technologies in the…

Chang, Shao-Chen; Hsu, Ting-Chia; Kuo, Wei-Chen; Jong, Morris Siu-Yung – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Science and technology are driving people's life changes, including education and the environment. Many scholars have attempted to import technology into the classroom to help students learn in different subjects. However, students often need assistance with unfamiliar learning approaches and learning environments. This study proposed a…
