Zogheib, Salah – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2014
As the majority of educational research has focused on preservice teachers' computer use for "educational purposes," the question remains: Do preservice teachers use computer technology for daily life activities and encounters? And do preservice teachers' personality traits and motivational beliefs related to computer training provided…

Gradel, Kathleen; Edson, Alden J. – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
As higher education grapples with addressing the 21st century needs of learners, technology is a pervasive concern. Waters (2012) painted a picture of three historical "screens," namely the television screen, the computer monitor, and today's mobile device screen. As mobile devices become increasingly commonplace in the workplace and on the…

O'Connor, Eileen – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
With the advent of web 2.0 and virtual technologies and new understandings about learning within a global, networked environment, online course design has moved beyond the constraints of text readings, papers, and discussion boards. This next generation of online courses needs to dynamically and actively integrate the wide-ranging distribution of…

Nieto-Fernandez, Fernando; Race, Kathryn; Quarless, Duncan A. – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
The Old Westbury Neuroscience International Research Program (OWNIP) encourages undergraduate students from health disparities populations and underrepresented minorities to pursue careers in basic science, biomedical, clinical, and behavioral health research fields. To evaluate this program, several measures were used tracked through an online…

Sloan, Roberta H. – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
An eTextbook and iPad were used in a pilot program, and the impact on the course was assessed to guide the development of a college policy. Students in the course completed three questionnaires to provide feedback about their perceptions of the eTextbook and iPad. During the pilot program, students' perceptions of the usefulness, ease of use, and…

Roepke, Jon – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
This article addresses the roadblocks to collaborative computing using traditional computing and educational learning systems. With the emergence of tablet computing devices, many of the barriers to technology-driven collaboration have come down. The proliferation of these devices in educational environments has increased significantly and, as a…

Snyder, Yaakov; Herer, Yale T.; Moore, Michael – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2012
We present a new approach for the organization of schools, which we call the flexible scheduling paradigm (FSP). FSP improves student learning by dynamically redeploying teachers and other pedagogical resources to provide students with customized learning conditions over shorter time periods called "mini-terms" instead of semesters or years. By…

Teoh, Jase – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2012
An in-depth qualitative study with nine secondary pre-service teachers from an undergraduate "Language and Literacy" class was conducted to examine the potential of simulation using Second Life (SL) in teacher education. Games and simulations were operationally defined in the broadest sense to distinguish key characteristics between…

Miller, Lee Dee; Shell, Duane; Khandaker, Nobel; Soh, Leen-Kiat – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2011
Computer games have long been used for teaching. Current reviews lack categorization and analysis using learning models which would help instructors assess the usefulness of computer games. We divide the use of games into two classes: game playing and game development. We discuss the Input-Process-Outcome (IPO) model for the learning process when…

Jaworski, Susan; Sullivan, Roberta – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2011
Do library catalogs compete with Google or is it the other way around? We know which came first but which will finish in the end? Only trained library professionals were considered qualified to develop reliable catalog records. However, with the increased sophistication of search engines, we are beginning to realize that a collaborative effort may…

Malikowski, Steven R. – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2011
American universities have adopted course management systems (CMSs) at levels that are unprecedented in learning technology. Researchers have investigated CMS use for a few reasons. First, they are interested in learning what universities are getting from the large investment into these systems. Second, there are so many features in a CMS that…
