Xenofontos, Nikoletta A.; Hovardas, Tasos; Zacharia, Zacharias C.; Jong, Ton – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
We examined student performance in a computer-supported learning environment after students undertook, among others, a graphing task within an inquiry context. Students were assigned in two conditions: (a) Students were given one variable, and they had to select the second one to construct their graph; (b) students were given four variables, and…

Lin, Jian-Wei – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Team-based learning (TBL) stresses applying knowledge rather than absorbing knowledge in class; studies have investigated the use of TBL and its merits in different teaching courses (e.g., medical science and business). TBL is most effective when students learn autonomously before class. However, the ability of autonomous learning is highly…

Lee, Hye Yeon; List, Alexandra – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study examined strategies used across two modalities of information presentation. Students were presented with two sources on endangered species, either as two texts or two videos. Then, participants were asked to annotate the two sources either using the track changes function in Microsoft Word, for the text condition, or using the VideoAnt,…

Kolpashnikova, Kamila; Bartolic, Silvia – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Computer-assisted instruction can change the way introductory statistics and quantitative methods courses are taught. Using a two-group pretest-posttest design, we conducted an experiment using an undergraduate social science student sample to investigate whether the introduction of statistical software to teaching quantitative methods would…

Pietarinen, Tarja; Vauras, Marja; Laakkonen, Eero; Kinnunen, Riitta; Volet, Simone – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study examined affect during high school students' face-to-face collaborative inquiry learning in science, supported by the web-based software Virtual Baltic Sea Explorer. Self-reported affective states during the inquiry process in peer groups were related to evaluations of a group's collaboration and performance in three phases of…

Wang, Hong-You; Lin, Vivien; Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Liu, Gi-Zen – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
To assess the effects and learner perceptions of context-aware ubiquitous language learning (CAULL), a green-building English-learning application (GBELA) employing sensing technology was created to develop participants' English listening and reading skills using smartphones and QR codes. This study investigated the effects of 40 participants'…

Kohnke, Lucas – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2020
In recent years, the widespread growth of mobile-assisted language learning using apps has made English vocabulary learning increasingly accessible. This study investigated students' perceptions of a vocabulary learning app developed by the researcher as a tool to help them to improve their L2 receptive vocabulary. The app, containing 20 levels,…

Berti, Margherita; Maranzana, Stefano; Monzingo, Jacob – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2020
In virtual reality, language learners can experience the foreign culture by exploring authentic and contextualized learning environments. To date, there is a lack of studies investigating the use of highly immersive virtual reality for cultural understanding as well as learners' attitudes toward its implementation in the language classroom. This…

Bahi, Halima; Necibi, Khaled – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2020
Pronunciation teaching is an important stage in language learning activities. This article tackles the pronunciation scoring problem where research has demonstrated relatively low human-human and low human-machine agreement rates, which makes teachers skeptical about their relevance. To overcome these limitations, a fuzzy combination of two…

Nadeem, Nahla Helmy – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Student engagement is a multidimensional construct that includes four distinct, though interrelated, aspects: behavioral, emotional, agentive, and cognitive engagement. The present study investigates students' perceptions about the impact of Padlet as a learning and assessment tool on the four aspects of class engagement. Padlet is a virtual wall…

Wu, Shaoqun; Fitzgerald, Alannah; Yu, Alex; Witten, Ian – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Learning collocations is one of the most challenging aspects of language learning as there are literally hundreds of thousands of possibilities for combining words. Corpus consultation with concordancers has been recognized in the literature as an established way for language learners to study and explore collocations at their own pace and in…

Jeaco, Stephen – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
One of the greatest impacts of corpus linguistics on language teaching has been in the recognition of the importance of collocation. A very influential guide for language teachers with regard to teaching collocation has been the Lexical Approach. Activities pointing students to rich collocational information in monolingual dictionaries, in texts…

Caruso, Marinella; Fraschini, Nicola; Kuuse, Sabine – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Feedback is one of the most important influences on second language learning. While much research has been undertaken in the field of corrective feedback, the study of student engagement with feedback in languages remains understudied. This article addresses the need for more interactive, effective and time-saving feedback, achieving more student…

Kim, Byoung Gwan; Shim, Hye Rin – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
This study investigated the optimal conditions under which foreign language learning takes place using a smartphone. The authors proposed that two factors, chunking and imagery, would increase language learning. On the basis of previous findings, they formulated three hypotheses: (a) the use of images will have a positive effect on learning…

Wang, Jinghui; Wang, Dongshuo; Xing, Minjie – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
This study reported on a flipped classroom approach used in a Business Chinese (BC) course in the UK. The research methods were 36 hours of classroom observation, two focused-group interviews (n = 6, 50 minutes each), triangulated with students' feedback from National Student Survey (NSS). The class observation revealed that the…
