Vanbecelaere, Stefanie; Van den Berghe, Katrien; Cornillie, Frederik; Sasanguie, Delphine; Reynvoet, Bert; Depaepe, Fien – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
For the training of academic skills, digital educational games with integrated adaptivity are promising. Adaptive games are considered superior to non-adaptive games, because they constantly assess children's performance, and accordingly adapt the difficulty of the tasks corresponding to the children's individual level. However, empirical evidence…

Wilkes, Shani; Kazakoff, Elizabeth R.; Prescott, Jen Elise; Bundschuh, Kristine; Hook, Pamela E.; Wolf, Raffaela; Hurwitz, Lisa B.; Macaruso, Paul – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
In the context of trying to improve reading proficiency in elementary school students, this study investigated the use of digital technology as part of a blended learning program, Core5, in kindergarten and first grade classes. A quasi-experimental design compared 283 treatment students instructed in schools using Core5 with 237 control students…

Ronimus, Miia; Eklund, Kenneth; Westerholm, Jari; Ketonen, Ritva; Lyytinen, Heikki – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
We used a randomized controlled trial to investigate if a mobile game, GraphoLearn (GL), could effectively support the learning of first graders (N = 70), who have severe difficulties in reading and spelling. We studied the effects of two versions of the game: GL Reading, which focused on training letter-sound correspondence and word reading; and…

Ghanaat Pisheh, Etrat AlZahra; NejatyJahromy, Yaser; Gargari, Rahim Badri; Hashemi, Touraj; Fathi-Azar, Eskandar – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The effect of the implementation of student response systems (SRSs) in teaching on the critical thinking (CT) of young students was investigated. The study benefited from a quasi-experimental design and a pretest/posttest set-up. Subjects consisted of 156 K-8 students in Tehran during 2016-2017, selected through a multistage cluster sampling, and…

Samur, Yavuz – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Learning letters is an important area of language learning, conducive to the beginning of reading and writing. Indeed, today's generation prefers to learn through digital games rather than through formal teaching processes. Inspired by this need, the researcher designed this study (a) to test the effectiveness of an instructional digital game,…

Chadli, Abdelhafid; Tranvouez, Erwan; Dahmani, Youcef; Bendella, Fatima; Belmabrouk, Karima – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
This study proposes a computer-assisted system with a design based on Polya's problem-solving model. The system is designed to help average and low-achieving second graders in mathematics with word-based addition and subtraction questions. The emphasis of using the specific model was on dividing the problem-solving procedure into stages and the…

Boschman, F.; McKenney, S.; Pieters, J.; Voogt, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2016
This study investigated the role of content knowledge in conversations of kindergarten teachers during collaborative curriculum design of learning material for technology-enhanced learning. Two teams of teachers received support from an early literacy expert during these design activities. Resulting conversations were analyzed on technological…

Liang, T.-H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Various studies have found that electronic books (e-books) promote learning, but few works have examined the use of e-books along with an adaptive reading strategy for children. The current study implemented a method to extract keyword cues from e-books to support e-book reading with the read, recite and review (3R) strategy, and then examined the…

Potocki, A.; Ecalle, J.; Magnan, A. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
The purpose of this study was to examine the differential impact of a computer-based comprehension training programme according to second graders' comprehender profiles. These profiles differed in the children's abilities to process three types of textual information: literal information, text-connecting inferences and gap-filling…

Juntunen, P.; Ruokonen, I.; Ruismäki, H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
For music students in the early stages of learning, the music may seem to be hidden behind the scores. To support home practising, Juntunen has created the "Playback Orchestra" method with which the students can practise with the support of the notation program playback of the full orchestra. The results of testing the method with…

Mo, D.; Zhang, L.; Wang, J.; Huang, W.; Shi, Y.; Boswell, M.; Rozelle, S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Computer assisted learning (CAL) programs have been shown to be effective in improving educational outcomes. However, the existing studies on CAL have almost all been conducted over a short period of time. There is very little evidence on how the impact evolves over time. In response, we conducted a clustered randomized experiment involving 2741…
