Weber, Rachel C.; Denyer, Ronan; Motamed Yeganeh, Negin; Maja, Rachel; Murphy, Meagan; Martin, Stephanie; Chiu, Larissa; Nguy, Veronique; White, Katherine; Boyd, Lara – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
Learning disabilities are currently conceptualised as involving underlying weaknesses in cognitive processing, which has prompted growing interest in cognitive interventions that may alleviate learning challenges. One such programme , the Arrowsmith programme, targets a broad array of cognitive domains, but has not been evaluated. This study…

Tham, Rachel; Walker, Zachary; Tan, Shi Hui Desiree; Low, Li Tong; Annabel Chen, Shen-Hsing – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
Translating Neuroscience to education involves providing accurate and simplified information about neuroscience to teachers. The aim of this research was to understand if providing translated abstracts from neuroscientific articles helped teachers understand content more thoroughly. Surveys, experimental manipulation, and focus group discussions…

Walker, Zachary; Hale, James B.; Annabel Chen, Shen-Hsing; Poon, Kenneth – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
The potential of educational neuroscience in teacher training and continuing professional development has been debated extensively, yet knowledge translation is largely absent in this field. Without objective methods for translating and disseminating educational neuroscience evidence, the impact of training on educators and the children they serve…

Kwok, F. Y.; Ansari, D. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
This commentary reviews and summarises the strides which neuroscience has made in our present understanding of the development of literacy and numeracy in children. Specifically, it draws attention to key insights from studies which have elucidated the possible neural mechanisms that may account for difficulties in the development of these…

Jamaludin, Azilawati; Wei Loong, David Hung; Xuan, Lim Pei – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
Learning is a complex phenomenon where a learner constitutes a system operating at neural, physiological, cognitive and social levels, with interactions between and across processes and levels, effecting neural to cognitive to social levels and vice versa. In tracing historical paradigms, theories of learning have been traditionally fragmented in…

Rifkin-Graboi, Anne; Khng, Kiat Hui; Cheung, Pierina; Tsotsi, Stella; Sun, He; Kwok, Fuyu; Yu, Yue; Xie, Huichao; Yang, Yang; Chen, Mo; Ng, Chee Chin; Hu, Pei Lin; Tan, Ngiap Chuan – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
We suggest that prior to school entry, our earliest "teachers" and "learning settings" --that is, our parents, caregivers, and homes--provide signals about our environmental conditions. In turn, our brains may interpret this information as cues indicating the types of environments we will likely face and adapt accordingly. We…

Stoten, David William – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
Self-regulated learning (SRL) is a fertile ground for research into learning in higher education. Until now, the dominant research methodology has concentrated on quantitative analyses of separate components within the Zimmerman model with the aim of isolating possible factors in learning trajectories and evaluating their relative importance in…

Koh, Elizabeth; Lee, Shu-Shing – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
Educational research has been at the forefront of educational transformation by examining how learning occurs and enabling ways of learning notably through designing and implementing learning innovations. However, learning innovations are complex. There are multiple embedded contexts involving classrooms, schools, communities, homes and the wider…

Aljaloud, Abdulaziz; Billingsley, William; Kwan, Paul – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
Smartphone clicker apps are increasingly used in university classrooms to facilitate teacher--student interaction and collaborative learning. This study aimed to identify the factors that influence teachers' decisions to adopt smartphone clicker app technology to enhance teacher--student interactions in university classrooms in Saudi Arabia. A…

Vähäsantanen, Katja; Hämäläinen, Raija – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
This paper reports a study on teachers' professional identity and work in vocational education. The findings showed that vocational teachers' work included vocational teaching within the school, developmental work, technology-enhanced work, professional duties outside the school, and educational duties within the school. Furthermore, the study…

Järvenoja, Hanna; Malmberg, Jonna; Järvelä, Sanna; Näykki, Piia; Kontturi, Heikki – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
This study explores fluctuation in students' emotional state and motivational goals during a learning project that requires self-regulation. The research asks the following questions: (1) How do students' emotional state and motivational goal fluctuate between the gStudy learning sessions during a two-month project? (2) How do students with…

Tan, Michael – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
The STEM movement is a recent phenomenon receiving worldwide attention as the darling educational project for school systems and research centres. This interest has no doubt been fuelled by economic rationales of the supposed necessity of STEM for continued material wealth, and the claims that the future will require a different sort of expertise…

Leber, Jasmin; Renkl, Alexander; Nückles, Matthias; Wäschle, Kristin – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
According to the model of constructive alignment, learners adjust their learning strategies to the announced assessment (backwash effect). Hence, when teaching for understanding, the assessment method should be aligned with this teaching goal to ensure that learners engage in corresponding learning strategies. A quasi-experimental field study with…

Easterday, Matthew W.; Rees Lewis, Daniel G.; Gerber, Elizabeth M. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
Since the first descriptions of design research (DR), there have been calls to better define it to increase its rigour. Yet five uncertainties remain: (1) the processes for conducting DR, (2) how DR differs from other forms of research, (3) how DR differs from design, (4) the products of DR, and (5) why DR can answer certain research questions…

Svihla, Vanessa; Wester, Michael J.; Linn, Marcia C. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
This study is inspired by laboratory studies demonstrating that distributing study sessions over time better supports learning and retention than clustering sessions. We compare two implementations of a multi-day inquiry science unit: in the clustered instruction condition, students completed an inquiry unit in five consecutive class periods. In…
