Karam, Rita; Pane, John F.; Griffin, Beth Ann; Robyn, Abby; Phillips, Andrea; Daugherty, Lindsay – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
Studies on blended education pay little attention to implementation, thus limiting the understanding of how such programs contribute to student math learning. This article examines the implementation of a widely used blended algebra curriculum and the relationship between implementation and student outcomes. The study was conducted in 74 middle…

Dwyer, Christopher P.; Hogan, Michael J.; Harney, Owen M.; Kavanagh, Caroline – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
Critical thinking (CT) is a metacognitive process, consisting of a number of sub-skills and dispositions that, when used appropriately, increases the chances of producing a logical conclusion to an argument or solution to a problem. Though the CT literature argues that dispositions are as important to CT as is the ability to perform CT skills, the…

Huang, Kun; Ge, Xun; Eseryel, Deniz – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
This study investigated the effects of metaconceptually-enhanced, simulation-based inquiry learning on eighth grade students' conceptual change in science and their development of science epistemic beliefs. Two experimental groups studied the topics of motion and force using the same computer simulations but with different simulation guides: one…

Hao, Shuang; Dennen, Vanessa P.; Mei, Li – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
This study examines the factors that influence mobile learning adoption among Chinese university students. China's higher education market is large and mobile device ownership is considered a status symbol. Combined, these two factors suggest mobile learning could have a big impact in China. From the literature, we identified three major areas…

Bennett, Sue; Agostinho, Shirley; Lockyer, Lori – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
Interest in how to support the design work of university teachers has led to research and development initiatives that include technology-based design-support tools, online repositories, and technical specifications. Despite these initiatives, remarkably little is known about the design work that university teachers actually do. This paper…

Blackburn, Greg – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
Much has been written about the promise and peril of technology in education. This paper presents an empirical study that explores how technology can play a pivotal role in student learning and how teaching staff can adopt innovative technology-based approaches in the creation of interactive online problem-based learning (PBL) resources, allowing…

Friedrichsen, Debra M.; Smith, Christina; Koretsky, Milo D. – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
We describe the propagation of a technology-based educational innovation through its first 3 years of public use. The innovation studied is the Concept Warehouse (CW), a database-driven website developed to support the use of concept-based pedagogies. This tool was initially developed for instructors in undergraduate chemical engineering courses,…

Kahn, Peter; Everington, Lucy; Kelm, Kathleen; Reid, Iain; Watkins, Francine – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
It is important to develop understanding of what underpins the engagement of students in online learning environments. This article reports on a multiple case study that explored student engagement in a set of postgraduate degrees offered on a fully online basis. The study was based on a theorization of student engagement as the exercise of…

Kim, Yanghee; Thayne, Jeffrey; Wei, Quan – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
Mathematics anxiety is known to be detrimental to mathematics learning. This study explored if an embodied agent could be used to help alleviate student anxiety in classrooms. To examine this potential, agent-guided algebra lessons were developed, in which an animated agent was equipped with prescriptive instructional guidance and anxiety treating…

Chuang, Tsung-Yen; Kuo, Ming-Shiou; Fan, Ping-Lin; Hsu, Yen-Wei – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
Sensory integration dysfunction (SID, also known as sensory processing disorder, SPD) is a condition that exists when a person's multisensory integration fails to process and respond adequately to the demands of the environment. Children with SID (CwSID) are also learners with disabilities with regard to responding adequately to the demands made…

Chen, Guang; Xin, Youlong; Chen, Nian-Shing – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
Informal science learning has drawn the attention of researchers, educators and museum administrators for a long time. However, the problem of how to better support visitors to be more engaged while visiting exhibits and improve informal science learning performance is still missing. Context-aware technologies have the advantages of fostering…

El-Masri, Mazen; Tarhini, Ali – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
This study examines the major factors that may hinder or enable the adoption of e-learning systems by university students in developing (Qatar) as well as developed (USA) countries. To this end, we used extended Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology 2 (UTAUT2) with Trust as an external variable. By means of an online survey, data were…
