Gruhn, Sophie; Segers, Eliane; Verhoeven, Ludo – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
We investigated pictorial versus contextual support effects over and above teaching of definitions on children's word learning and retention as well as the moderating role of reading comprehension. In a between-subject pre-post-retention test control group design, Dutch fourth graders learned concrete and abstract Dutch words. The context group…

Chen, Jyun-Chen; Huang, Yun; Lin, Kuen-Yi; Chang, Yu-Shan; Lin, Hung-Chang; Lin, Chien-Yu; Hsiao, Hsien-Sheng – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
This study combined virtual reality (VR) technology, the 6E (Engage, Explore, Explain, Engineer, Enrich, and Evaluate) model, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education to develop a hands-on activity aimed at helping students to achieve "learning by doing." The participants were 162 tenth-grade students,…

van Weerdenburg, Marjolijn; Tesselhof, Mariëtte; van der Meijden, Henny – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study investigated the effect of a touch-typing course on the spelling and narrative-writing skills on the computer of elementary school students. Data of 207 students in Grades 4, 5, and 6 were analysed using a pretest-posttest design. Students in the experimental group (n = 154) followed a touch-typing course, and those in the control group…

Hsia, Yen-Teh; Jong, Bin-Shyan; Lin, Tsong-Wuu; Liao, Ji-Yang – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Suppose learners use their free time to go online to review course materials, and they do so by taking optional tests that consist of multiple-choice questions (MCQs). What will happen if, for every practice question, there is always a choice (out of four possible choices) that is marked as "the (current) hot choice?" Will this make any…

Shadiev, Rustam; Wu, Ting-Ting; Huang, Yueh-Min – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
We provided texts generated by speech-to text-recognition (STR) technology for non-native English speaking students during lectures in English in order to test whether STR-texts were useful for enhancing students' comprehension of lectures. To this end, we carried out an experiment in which 60 participants were randomly assigned to a control group…

Nikou, S. A.; Economides, A. A. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Mobile-based micro-learning has gained a lot of attention lately, especially for work-based and corporate training. It combines features of mobile learning and micro-learning to deliver small learning units and short-term learning activities. The current study uses the lens of the Self-Determination Theory of motivation and proposes a series of…

Liao, Calvin C. Y.; Chang, Wan-Chen; Chan, Tak-Wai – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
We have observed that many computer-supported writing environments based on pedagogical strategies have only been designed to incorporate the cognitive aspects, but motivational aspects should also be included. Hence, we theorize that integrating game-based learning into the writing environment may be a practical approach that can facilitate…

Chang, Chi-Cheng; Warden, Clyde A.; Liang, Chaoyun; Chou, Pao-Nan – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
This study examines differences in English listening comprehension, cognitive load, and learning behaviour between outdoor ubiquitous learning and indoor computer-assisted learning. An experimental design, employing a pretest-posttest control group is employed. Randomly assigned foreign language university majors joined either the experimental…

Garzón, Juan; Bautista, Julián – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Learning and teaching algebra concepts are frequent problems for both students and teachers alike. Students struggle to learn algebra, and teachers struggle to identify the best way to teach algebra. It is recurrent that teachers use instructional methods that promote memorization, and, consequently, the learning process may prove unsatisfactory.…

Lambic, Dragan; Lazovic, Bojana; Djenic, Aleksandar; Maric, Miroslav – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
In this paper, a new approach for the formation of four-member collaborative learning groups is presented. Group formation is presented by the mathematical optimization problem. Based on the proposed approach and the variable neighbourhood search (VNS) algorithm, the application that solves the presented problem and provides the appropriate…

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…

Teepe, R. C.; Molenaar, I.; Verhoeven, L. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
Preschool children's vocabulary mainly develops verbal through interaction. Therefore, the technology-enhanced storytelling (TES) activity Jeffy's Journey is developed to support parent-child interaction and vocabulary in preschool children. TES entails shared verbal storytelling supported by a story structure and real-time visual, auditory and…
