Teo, Timothy; Doleck, Tenzin; Bazelais, Paul; Lemay, David John – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2019
The question of what drives learners to adopt and use certain technologies over others, generally referred to as technology acceptance in the literature, is of interest to educational technology researchers, to policymakers, and developers in educational institutions. Technology acceptance models can inform adoption and implementation decisions.…

Lin, Chin-Hsi; Kwon, Jemma Bae; Zhang, Yining – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2019
In the traditional brick-and-mortar classroom, small classes are generally perceived as desirable, but the benefits associated with particular class sizes in online education have not yet received much scholarly attention. Using a dataset of 10,648 enrollment records generated during the 2013-2014 school year at a state virtual school in the…

Yim, Joanne Sau-Ching; Moses, Priscilla; Azalea, Alia – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2019
Psychological ownership (PO) is a sense of being psychologically tied to an object to the extent that it becomes part of the extended self. As technology becomes ubiquitous in daily lives, research have shown the potential of this concept to influence users' behavior. Hence, this study incorporates PO and its antecedents with the beliefs of…

Aslan, Sinem; Alyuz, Nese; Okur, Eda; Mete, Sinem Emine; Oktay, Ece; Esme, Asli Arslan – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2018
The goal of this research is to investigate the effect of emotion-aware interventions on students' behavioral and emotional states. To this end, we collected data from 12 students in the 9th grade in a high school in Turkey. The data collection took place in two sessions of an English Course. While the students were reading articles and solving…

Kissi, Philip Siaw; Nat, Muesser; Armah, Robert Benjamin – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2018
Flipped learning approach combines video-based instruction (VBI) outside the classroom and problem-solving activities inside the classroom. The success of this instructional approach largely depends on students' acceptance to learn the video presentation at home during pre-classroom activities. However, there are still very scarce insights…

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…

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…

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…

Huang, Yueh-Min; Shadiev, Rustam; Sun, Ai; Hwang, Wu-Yuin; Liu, Tzu-Yu – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
For this study the researchers designed learning activities to enhance students' high level cognitive processes. Students learned new information in a classroom setting and then applied and analyzed their new knowledge in familiar authentic contexts by taking pictures of objects found there, describing them, and sharing their homework with peers.…

Vanderhoven, Ellen; Schellens, Tammy; Vanderlinde, Ruben; Valcke, Martin – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2016
Nearly all of today's Western teenagers have a profile on a social network site (SNS). As many risks have been reported, researchers and governments have emphasized the role of school education to teach teenagers how to deal safely with SNSs. However, little is known about the specific characteristics which would make interventions effective.…
