Cacciamani, Stefano; Perrucci, Vittore; Khanlari, Ahmad – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2018
The aim of this study was to develop a coding scheme rooted in the Knowledge Building model, named Conversational Functions for Knowledge Building (CF4KB), to analyze students' interactions in an online undergraduate course. In order to develop the coding scheme, we analyzed students discourse and identified the kinds of "Conversational…

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…

Dwyer, Christopher P.; Hogan, Michael J.; Harney, Owen M.; O'Reilly, John – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2014
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 solution to a problem or a valid conclusion to an argument. CT has been identified as a fundamental learning objective of third-level education; however, students…

Hung, Woei – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2013
Today, much problem solving is performed by teams, rather than individuals. The complexity of these problems has exceeded the cognitive capacity of any individual and requires a team of members to solve them. The success of solving these complex problems not only relies on individual team members who possess different but complementary expertise,…

Kim, Yanghee; Baylor, Amy L. – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2006
Teaching and learning are highly social activities. Seminal psychologists such as Vygotsky, Piaget, and Bandura have theorized that social interaction is a key mechanism in the process of learning and development. In particular, the benefits of peer interaction for learning and motivation in classrooms have been broadly demonstrated through…

Clariana, Roy B.; Wagner, Daren; Murphy, Lucia C. Roher – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2000
Considers the effects of feedback on memory with an emphasis on retention of initial error responses. Applies a connectionist approach to explain feedback effects. High school students completed a computer-based lesson with either delayed feedback, single-try immediate feedback, or multiple-try immediate feedback. Findings indicate a connectionist…
