Aljojo, Nahla – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2017
People's styles of thinking vary; we seek to understand these differences, to refine our abilities and skills, and find new and useful ways of thinking. To develop this concept, we implement the Sternberg (1997) thinking style inventory (TSI) as part of the learning process. The main idea behind the implementation of this style of thinking is to…

Sánchez, Carles; Ramos, Oriol; Márquez, Patricia; Marti, Enric; Rocarias, Jaume; Gil, Debora – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2015
The first years in engineering degree courses are usually made of large groups with a low teacher-student ratio. Overcrowding in classrooms hinders continuous assessment much needed to promote independent learning. Therefore, there is a need to apply some kind of automatic evaluation to facilitate the correction of exercises outside the classroom.…
