Altman, Miriam; Meis, Alexandra – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
The American K-12 grade education system is experiencing a truancy crisis. Nationally, 15%, or 7.5 million students, miss an entire month of school annually [1], with that rate frequently doubling or even tripling among students from underserved communities [2]. Research has identified attendance as one of three primary indicators of high school…

Pullan, Marie – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
Several college majors, outside of computer science, require students to learn computer programming. Many students have difficulty getting through the programming sequence and ultimately change majors or drop out of college. To deal with this problem, active learning techniques were developed and implemented in a freshman programming logic and…

Aaron, Lynn S.; Roche, Catherine M. – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
Universities stand for truth and knowledge. Academic integrity is the ideal we hold up to our students and ourselves. It's based on respect for the work we do and respect for the work of others. The current state of academic dishonesty on campus is a threat to the morality of the students, the integrity of their grades, and the reputation of our…

Pakter, Alexander; Chen, Li-Ling – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
Numerous educational researches have showed that parental involvement in schools is highly correlated with higher student performance (Griffith, 1996; Jeynes, 2005, 2012; Sheldon, 2003; Stevenson & Baker, 1987; Williams, & Sanches, 2012). The research results are so evident that schools are now required by law to implement parental…

O'Connor, Eileen A.; McQuigge, Amy – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
The use of digital badges for peer-credentialing web-shared work offers the promise of extending classroom learning beyond explicit course objectives and evaluations. This pilot study of peer-awarded badges examines the results of an online graduate course where students voted on and evaluated the web-shared work of their colleagues on different…

Rufer, Rosalyn; Adams, Ruifang Hope – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
It has well been established that it is important to be able to leverage any organization's processes and core competencies to sustain its competitive advantage. Thus, one learning objective of an online MBA is to teach students how to apply the VRIO (value, rarity, inimitable, operationalized) model, developed by Barney and Hesterly (2006), in…

Pence, Harry E. – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
Despite the lack of a viable business model and very high student attrition rates, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have become the current obsession in higher education. Even so, there is still no broad agreement about what a MOOC actually is. Although the current MOOC format(s) may not be a solution to our problems, they may be a symptom of…

Dietz-Uhler, Beth; Lanter, Jason R. – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2012
To assess the effectiveness of a cooperative learning activity, students were randomly assigned to small groups and asked to lead an online discussion. Responses to a survey administered at the completion of the course suggest that the activity was effective in meeting its goals of promoting student interaction and increasing perceived student…
