Wong, Rachel M.; Adesope, Olusola O.; Carbonneau, Kira J. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2019
Worked examples and self-explanations studies have been conducted predominantly with college students in controlled laboratory settings. While there is evidence showing the independent effects of these learning strategies with college students, little is known about the combined effects with K-12 students in ecologically-valid environments.…
