Vogel, Freydis; Wecker, Christof; Kollar, Ingo; Fischer, Frank – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Scripts for computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) offer socio-cognitive scaffolding for learners to engage in collaborative activities that are considered beneficial for learning. Yet, CSCL scripts are often criticized for hampering naturally emerging collaboration. Research on the effectiveness of CSCL scripts has shown divergent…

Zaff, Jonathan F.; Donlan, Alice; Gunning, Aaron; Anderson, Sara E.; McDermott, Elana; Sedaca, Michelle – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
A high school education prepares young people to participate positively in the economy and in civic life, among other positive life outcomes. However, nearly one in five American high school students does not graduate from high school on time, if ever. Progress has been made on understanding why students fail to complete high school and on raising…

Peng, Peng; Wang, Cuicui; Tao, Sha; Sun, Congying – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
The current meta-analysis synthesized findings from profiling research on Chinese children with reading difficulties (RD). We reviewed a total of 81 studies published between 1964 and May 2015, representing a total of 9735 Chinese children. There are 982 effect sizes for the comparison between children with RD and age-matched typically developing…

Neale, Dave; Pino-Pasternak, Deborah – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
The importance of parent-child reminiscing for young children's social and cognitive development has been well established, but despite the increasing numbers of children attending formal early childhood settings such as nurseries and preschools, there has been surprisingly little research exploring educator-child reminiscing in these contexts.…

Alexander, Patricia A. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
What is relational reasoning? Why is it critical to consider the role of relational reasoning in students learning and development in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)? Moreover, how do the particular contributions populating this special issue address the pressing societal needs and offer guidance to researchers and…

Schunn, Christian D. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
This concluding commentary takes the perspective of research on practicing scientists and engineers to consider what open areas and future directions on relational thinking and learning should be considered beyond the impressive research presented in the special issue. Areas for more work include (a) a need to examine educational applications of…

Murphy, P. Karen; Firetto, Carla M.; Greene, Jeffrey A. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
As reflected in the Next Generation Science Standards, concerns about the adequacy of education and career preparation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields have led to fundamental shifts in the focus of K-12 science education. Such shifts are also highlighted in many of the articles within this special issue, and the…

Dumas, Denis – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
This review brings together the literature that pertains to the role of relational reasoning, or the ability to discern meaningful patterns within any stream of information, in the mental work of scientists, medical doctors, and engineers. Existing studies that measure four forms of relational reasoning--analogy, anomaly, antinomy, and…

Kendeou, Panayiota; Butterfuss, Reese; Van Boekel, Martin; O'Brien, Edward J. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Our goal in this theoretical contribution is to connect research on knowledge revision and relational reasoning. To achieve this goal, first, we review the "knowledge revision components framework" (KReC) that provides an account of knowledge revision processes, specifically as they unfold during reading of texts. Second, we review a…

Howard, S. J.; Powell, T.; Vasseleu, E.; Johnstone, S.; Melhuish, E. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Given evidence that early executive functioning sets the stage for a broad range of subsequent outcomes, researchers have sought to identify ways to foster these cognitive capacities. The current series of studies sought to design, develop, and provide evidence for the efficacy of embedding cognitive activities in a commonplace activity--shared…

Richland, Lindsey E.; Begolli, Kreshnik Nasi; Simms, Nina; Frausel, Rebecca R.; Lyons, Emily A. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Mathematical discussions in which students compare alternative solutions to a problem can be powerful modes for students to engage and refine their misconceptions into conceptual understanding, as well as to develop understanding of the mathematics underlying common algorithms. At the same time, these discussions are challenging to lead…

Bevilacqua, Andy – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Recent upgrades to cognitive load theory suggest that evolutionary processes have shaped the way that working memory processes cultural and social information. According to evolutionarily educational psychologists, some forms of information are processed with lower working memory loads than other forms. The former are evolutionarily salient and…

DeLozier, Sarah J.; Rhodes, Matthew G. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Flipped classrooms refer to the practice of assigning lectures outside of class and devoting class time to a variety of learning activities. In this review, we discuss the range of approaches to the flipped classroom and focus on activities frequently used in these settings. Amongst these, we examine both out-of-class activities (e.g., video…

Wang, Ming-Te; Degol, Jessica L. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Although the gender gap in math course-taking and performance has narrowed in recent decades, females continue to be underrepresented in math-intensive fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Career pathways encompass the ability to pursue a career as well as the motivation to employ that ability. Individual differences…

Danielson, Robert W.; Sinatra, Gale M. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
We propose that research on text-graphic processing could be strengthened by the inclusion of relational reasoning perspectives. We briefly outline four aspects of relational reasoning: "analogies," "anomalies," "antinomies", and "antitheses". Next, we illustrate how text-graphic researchers have been…
