Jamaludin, Azilawati; Shaari, Imran – Educational Technology, 2016
This article discusses peer apprenticeship learning (PAL) as situated within networked learning communities (NLCs). The context revolves around the diffusion of technologically-mediated learning in Singapore schools, where teachers begin to implement inquiry-oriented learning, consistent with 21st century learning, among students. As these schools…

Hung, David; Lee, Shu-Shing – Educational Technology, 2015
Education cannot adopt the linear model of scaling used by the medical sciences. "Gold standards" cannot be replicated without considering process-in-learning, diversity, and student-variedness in classrooms. This article proposes a nuanced model of educational scaling-and-diffusion, describing the scaling (top-down supports) and…

Norris, Cathleen; Hossain, Akhlaq; Soloway, Elliot – Educational Technology, 2011
The authors stand by this prediction: Within five years "every" child in "every" grade in "every" K-12 classroom in America will be using a mobile learning device (MLD), 24/7. And a corollary already being seen in MLD-using classrooms: Student achievement will increase "significantly", since time-on-task…

Norris, Cathleen A.; Soloway, Elliot – Educational Technology, 2011
Speeding past the Steve Jobs Post-PC Era into the Age of Mobilism, the authors foresee how, by 2015, each and every student in America's K-12 classrooms will be using their own mobile computing device, with those devices engendering the most disruptive transformation in education in 150 years. Classrooms will move from today's "I Teach"…

Kim, Beaumie; Kim, Mi Song – Educational Technology, 2010
Learning is a social activity, which requires interactions with the environment, tools, people, and also ourselves (e.g., our previous experiences). Each interaction provides different meanings to learners, and the associated emotion affects their learning and performance. With the premise that emotion and cognition are distributed, the authors…

Bielaczyc, Katerine; Kapur, Manu – Educational Technology, 2010
Education in the Knowledge Age calls for engaging students in creative work with knowledge. A major implication for research and design in the learning sciences is that the necessary shift is not simply technological or pedagogical, but essentially epistemological (Brown, 2007). In this article, the authors view such creative work with knowledge…

Looi, Chee-Kit; Chen, Wenli; Patton, Charles M. – Educational Technology, 2010
The authors discuss the notion of Rapid Collaborative Knowledge Building (RCKB) in classroom settings. RCKB seeks to harness the collective intelligence of groups to learn faster, envision new possibilities, and to reveal latent knowledge in a dynamic live setting. It is characterized by the notion of rapid cycles of knowledge building activities…
