Nye, Benjamin D.; Davis, Dan M.; Rizvi, Sanad Z.; Carr, Kayla; Swartout, William; Thacker, Raj; Shaw, Kenneth – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
One-on-one mentoring is effective for helping novices with career development. However, traditional mentoring scales poorly. To address this problem, MentorPal emulates conversations with a panel of virtual mentors based on recordings of real STEM professionals. Students freely ask questions as they might in a career fair, while machine learning…

Silvervarg, Annika; Wolf, Rachel; Blair, Kristen Pilner; Haake, Magnus; Gulz, Agneta – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
Does a teachable agent influence the uptake or neglect of 'critical constructive feedback' and learning within a digital environment? 285 middle-school students engaged with a history learning game in a 2x2 study design. One dimension was inclusion of a teachable agent. Orthogonal was whether critical constructive feedback was presented…

Howell, Heather; Mikeska, Jamie N. – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
Human-in-the-loop simulation is a valuable tool that can support novice teachers in learning how to lead classroom discussions. We ground our use of simulation in a theory of practice-based teacher education, examining how authenticity is theorized around approximations of practice. We then illustrate the use an approximation of practice approach,…

Bondie, Rhonda; Mancenido, Zid; Dede, Chris – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
This literature review analyzed 18 studies published between 2013 and 2020 to understand the role of virtual humans in mixed reality digital puppeteering simulations aimed at promoting teacher learning. Research questions explored: simulation design models, interactor training, and the attention researchers gave to language and race in the virtual…

Li, Haiying; Graesser, Arthur C. – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
This study investigated how computer agents' language style affects summary writing in an Intelligent Tutoring System, called CSAL AutoTutor. Participants interacted with two computer agents in one of three language styles: (1) a "formal" language style, (2) an "informal" language style, and (3) a "mixed" language…

Davis, Robert O.; Park, Taejung; Vincent, Joseph – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
Early researchers suggested that virtual humans (animated pedagogical agents) required a persona if they were to be anthropomorphized by the user. Over the past two decades, research has focused on design features that target the perception of persona in order to increase the anthropomorphization of the agent toward the end of increased learning…

Leonard, Alison E.; Daily, Shaundra B.; Jörg, Sophie; Babu, Sabarish V. – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
Over the past 7 years, we pioneered the development of a program blending dance choreography, computer programming, and a virtual environment to teach computational thinking, broadening pathways for more diverse students. We investigated the ways in which upper elementary and middle school students creating dance performances for virtual…

Baker, Doris Luft; Ma, Hao; Polanco, Paul; Conry, Jillian Marie; Kamata, Akihito; Al Otaiba, Stephanie; Ward, Wayne; Cole, Ron – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
We examine the promise, usability, and feasibility of an intelligent tutoring system (ITS) to improve the vocabulary and language proficiency in science and social studies of Latinx second grade English learners (ELs). Participants were 217 ELs attending English only programs or bilingual programs. Findings from the clustered randomized control…

Yang, Hui-Yu – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
The present empirical study investigated whether progressive visuospatial cues presented in a self-regulatory mode could assist learners in comprehending the operation of a mechanical system. In the present study, the interactivity and cueing were the independent variables in terms of investigating their effectiveness on retention and transfer…

Vallade, Jessalyn I.; Kaufmann, Renee – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
As online courses gain popularity in higher education, researchers need to examine how problematic communication behaviors like instructor misbehaviors impact instructional learning goals (i.e., affect and perceived cognitive learning) in order to help provide positive affect and quality online instruction. This study relied particularly on 193…

Margolin, Jonathan; Ba, Harouna; Friedman, Lawrence B.; Swanlund, Andrew; Dhillon, Sonica; Liu, Feng – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
The "Playground Physics" program combines informal, play-based, embodied learning experiences to support middle school students' engagement with and motivation to learn about complex and abstract physics concepts. This experimental design study examines the impact of "Playground Physics" on students' science motivation,…

Wargo, Elizabeth; Carr Chellman, Davin; Budge, Kathleen; Canfield Davis, Kathryn – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
Even in the most remote U.S. rural contexts today technology is a part of schooling. This article explores stakeholders' perceptions of educational technology as it relates to schooling in six rural districts in the state of Idaho. Stakeholder descriptions were collected using sondeo style focus groups with seven specific groups (students,…

Song, Donggil; Kim, Dongho – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
The aim of this study is to investigate whether an interactive self-regulation scaffolding increases levels of online learners' self-regulated learning skills, course participation, and learning performance. The intervention utilizes a dialog approach with an intelligent conversational agent to scaffold learners' self-regulated learning. Fifty-six…

Liu, Min; Shi, Yi; Pan, Zilong; Li, ChengLu; Pan, Xin; Lopez, Frances – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
Literature has documented the benefits of problem-based learning (PBL), but also shown significant barriers to using PBL in K-12 education. Yet, the research describing why and how K-12 teachers implement PBL is insufficient. In this qualitative study, using semi-structured interviews, we investigate why 25 middle school teachers chose to…

Rich, Peter J.; Larsen, Ross A.; Mason, Stacie L. – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2021
This study sought to identify factors that affect teachers' beliefs about teaching computing in their classrooms. By reviewing existing scales and research on computing, we created the Teacher Beliefs about Coding and Computational Thinking (TBaCCT) scale. Through confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modeling we validated the scale…
