Parker, Caroline E.; Stylinski, Cathlyn D.; Bonney, Christina R.; DeLisi, Jacqueline; Wong, Joseph; Doty, Cassie – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Researchers, evaluators, and practitioners need tools to distinguish between applications of technology that support, enhance, and transform classroom instruction and those that are ineffective or even deleterious. Here we present a new classroom observation protocol designed specifically to capture the quality of technology use to support science…

Nugent, Gwen; Barker, Bradley; Lester, Houston; Grandgenett, Neal; Valentine, Dagen – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Electronic textiles, especially those that can be worn (wearable textiles) are gaining traction within the P12 education community. The technology provides hands-on learning that is both exciting and personally relevant, especially for females, who have historically responded positively to aesthetics and textile design. A number of studies have…

Lamb, Richard L.; Etopio, Elisabeth – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This study investigates the role that textbooks, virtual reality (VR), and mixed approaches (i.e., text and VR) can play in the development of the two writing types, summary and argument writing. This study uses hemodynamics as a proxy for learning. Differences in hemodynamic responses during writing tasks were measured across four different…

Ching, Cynthia Carter; Hagood, Danielle – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This paper connects the technological practice of activity monitor gaming to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) science and engineering practice of "analyzing and interpreting data," and to the foundational constructionist idea of personal meaning. In our larger study, eighth-grade students, ages 12-14, wore physical activity…
