Dwyer, Christopher P.; Walsh, Anne – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
Critical thinking is a metacognitive process that, through purposeful, self-regulatory reflective judgment; skills of analysis, evaluation and inference; and a disposition towards thinking, increases the chances of producing a logical conclusion to an argument or solution to a problem. Critical thinking is vital for not only educational…

Karno, Donna; Hatcher, Beth – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
A Multi-touch table functions as a tablet, but allows multiple children to move around and manipulate the screen simultaneously. Using social cognitive theory (Bandura 1997) to analyze group dynamics, this study examined computer-supported collaborative learning. Children were observed and recorded for 20 min, three times a week for 5 weeks as…

Barton, Emily A.; Dexter, Sara – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
Teachers do not consistently maximize the potential of classroom technologies for enhancing student learning. As their self-efficacy is positively associated with technology integration, developing teachers' self-efficacy could increase high-quality integration. We investigate how a holistic system of professional learning about technology…

Makransky, Guido; Mayer, Richard; Nøremølle, Anne; Cordoba, Ainara Lopez; Wandall, Jakob; Bonde, Mads – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
There is great potential in making assessment and learning complementary. In this study, we investigated the feasibility of developing a desktop virtual reality (VR) laboratory simulation on the topic of genetics, with integrated assessment using multiple choice questions based on item response theory (IRT) and feedback based on the cognitive…

Tondeur, Jo; Scherer, Ronny; Siddiq, Fazilat; Baran, Evrim – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
The main aim of this two-step mixed-method study was to explore the effectiveness of the strategies used to prepare pre-service teachers for technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK). Specifically, we focused on the strategies included in the synthesis of qualitative evidence (SQD) model: (1) using teacher educators as role models, (2)…

Coughlan, Tim – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
Open data has potential value as a material for use in learning activities. However, approaches to harnessing this are not well understood or in mainstream use in education. In this research, early adopters from a diverse range of educational projects and teaching settings were interviewed to explore their rationale for using open data in…

Huang, Fang; Teo, Timothy; Zhou, Mingming – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
This large-scale study used the extended technology acceptance model to examine the different factors influencing Chinese university students' intentions to use the Internet-based technology with a learning focus. Specifically, the subject norm was conceptualised as a three-dimensional construct consisting of teacher influence, peer influence and…

Cheng, Li; Beal, Carole R. – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of student-generated drawing and imagination on learning recall, learning transfer, and cognitive load, and also students' attitudes towards the learning strategies when learning a computer-based science text, compared to learning with provided pictures. The study used three groups: drawing…

Wetzel, Stefanie; Bertel, Sven; Montag, Michael; Zander, Steffi – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
Spatial skill assessment and training are promising fields of application for tablets, as touch-based interaction can prime and support mental transformations of spatial knowledge. We report on a study with 49 secondary school students who used our iPad app to solve mental and physical rotation tasks. During physical rotation, students were able…

Liu, Yan; Gu, Xiaoqing – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
As students are processing information from digital media and educational materials, they are increasingly being interrupted by competing media and their surroundings. This trend of increased interruptions suggests the continuous increase of instances of fragmented reading in learning settings for the younger generation of students. This study…

Hamutoglu, Nazire Burcin; Gemikonakli, Orhan; Duman, Ibrahim; Kirksekiz, Ali; Kiyici, Mubin – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
Virtual learning environments (VLEs) are web-based software systems that enable students to interact with their teachers and classmates, access learning resources without restriction of time and place, and use cutting-edge Information and Communication Technologies. Nevertheless, VLEs are costly to develop and maintain. Clearly, many features of…

Noh, Jiyae; Lee, Jeongmin – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
Around the world, programming education is actively promoted by such factors as economic and technical requirements. The use of a robot in programming education could help students understand computer-science concepts more easily. In this study we designed a course in programming a robot for elementary school students and investigated its…

Li, Jessica; Wong, Seohyun Claire; Yang, Xue; Bell, Allison – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
How should learner analytics and different media be used to optimize feedback to increase students' motivation and sense of learning community in online learning programs? This study was designed to examine the usage of feedback delivery methods (text only, video only, or both) and learner analytics (individual vs. class average) to answer the…
