Tytler, Russell; Ferguson, Joseph; White, Peta – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
Increasingly, learning in science and mathematics is considered in terms of induction into the multimodal language practices of the disciplinary community. A strong strand of research in this tradition has involved students being challenged to invent multimodal language forms, and their ideas refined through structured guidance. Often, however,…

Nielsen, Wendy; Turney, Annette; Georgiou, Helen; Jones, Pauline – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
A "digital explanation" is a science learning task where learners explain science content to non-expert others, in this case, the learners are primary preservice teachers [PST] in a science methods class. In the task, PST are assigned a prompt based on science content from the New South Wales K-6 syllabus and generate or source multiple…

Yeo, Jennifer; Wong, Wai Lit; Tan, Daniel K. C.; Ong, Yann Shiou; Delserieys Pedregosa, Alice – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
Science teachers often use visual images to help students visualise the abstract concepts of science. Yet, they may not support students in making sense of these visual representations, wrongly assuming that the students can intuitively do it on their own. Pre- and in-service teacher professional development programmes also seldom explicitly teach…

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…

Abdul Kader, Hajera Bibi – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
In many Singapore schools, there are large class sizes comprising about thirty to forty students in each class. In such large classes, the opportunities for interactions between teachers and their students and among students can be limited, especially when teacher-centred, didactic teaching practices are adopted. This small-scale research project…

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…

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…
