Lee, Eunbae; Hannafin, Michael J. – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2016
Student-centered learning (SCL) identifies students as the owners of their learning. While SCL is increasingly discussed in K-12 and higher education, researchers and practitioners lack current and comprehensive framework to design, develop, and implement SCL. We examine the implications of theory and research-based evidence to inform those who…

Lee, Hyeon Woo; Lim, Kyu Yon; Grabowski, Barbara L. – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2010
Comprehension of science topics occurs when learners meaningfully generate relationships and conceptions about what they read. In this generation process, learners' cognitive and metacognitive regulation is one of the most critical factors influencing learning. However, learners are not always successful in regulating their own learning,…
