This study intended to explore elementary and middle school science teachers' metadiscourse moves (MDMs) in Vygotskian perspective. MDMs indicates teacher-led attempts to cognitively engage students in classroom's verbal occurrences. Participants of the study were 71 fifth, sixth, and seventh-grade students and their science teachers (two females,…

Adams, Jonathon; Chin, Tan Ying; Tan, Poh Hiang – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
This paper was part of a larger study to examine one primary and one secondary teacher's classroom. The study analysed the classroom discourse to¬†describe the types of interaction and illustrate how the teachers used talk moves to mediate talk for learning science around visual representations (VRs). The study employed ethnographic approaches to…

Cheng, Maurice M. W.; Danielsson, Kristina; Lin, Angel M. Y. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
This paper examines the roles of multimodality and thematic patterns in the teaching of the particle model of matter. Although the particle model is a fundamental topic in science education, there is no consensus on (1) whether or not the model should be introduced in early grades and (2) how to introduce the model to students for the very first…

Ioannou, Kalia; Iordanou, Kalypso – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
The present study explores possible relations between students' epistemic perspective, learning strategies and text comprehension. In Study 1, 79 sixth graders completed paper-and-pencil instruments to measure their epistemic perspective and learning strategies. Students' epistemic perspective was assessed using a scenario-based instrument, the…

King, Donna; Henderson, Senka; Sandhu, Maryam – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
Abdominal deep breathing (DB) has been used in conjunction with paying attention on purpose to the present moment as a mindfulness tool to help students develop skills for managing emotions. While studies are emerging that investigate outcomes of mindfulness practices with adolescents, how to implement such practices, and students' reactions to…

Taylor, Elisabeth (Lily) – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
Alienation and moral disengagement have been described in the literature as some of the key factors for making some people more vulnerable to violent extremism. In this paper, I explore how mindfulness training, especially when paired with art therapy strategies, has great potential for supporting targeted educational measures for building…

Thang, Fong Kwan; Koh, Joyce Hwee Ling – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
A secondary school in Singapore incorporated twenty-first century learning into their science curriculum through an inquiry-based Integrated Science module. This study examines Secondary 2 students' perceptions of twenty-first century learning through this module. Through pre- and post-study surveys of 227 students and focus group interviews with…

Hu, Xiao – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
Despite the rapid development in the area of learning analytics (LA), there is comparatively little focused towards the secondary level of education. This ongoing work presents the latest developed function of Wikiglass, an LA tool designed for automatically recognising, aggregating, and visualising levels of thinking orders in student…

Tan, Michael; Lee, Shu-Shing; Ng, Zhi Ying – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
While the Silicon Valley aphorism would encourage all involved in design to 'fail early so that one can succeed earlier', such a concept may be hard to translate to classroom instructional strategies, especially due to the negative connotations of failure in school settings. Failures in design serve a somewhat distinct purpose from failures in…

Rutten, Nico; van Joolingen, Wouter R.; van der Veen, Jan T. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
Going beyond simply measuring the effectiveness of a teaching approach with computer simulations during whole-class science instruction, we investigated the interaction between teachers and their students as well as searched for mechanisms in the pedagogical context related to teachers' implementation of the intervention. Our quasi-experimental…
