Fudge, Daniel; Skipworth, Sue Ann – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
The contemporary education system aides in the development of students' cognitive learning skills to better prepare them for the future; however, education can also prepare students to be more engaged citizens in a democratic society. Civic literacy is a valuable skill for students to learn as it provides a foundation for a better understanding of…

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…

Chai, Ching Sing; Koh, Joyce Hwee Ling – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
This study investigates the change in teachers' design beliefs and their development of technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) through a course designed with the Scaffolded TPACK lesson design model. To achieve these aims, an adapted scale for teachers' design beliefs and TPACK is created and validated. The study reveals significant…

Lodge, Jason M.; Cottrell, David; Hansen, Louise – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
This commentary is a response to those of Hall (2016) and Winebrenner (2016), which in turn were responses to the article the authors wrote on modality preferences and learning styles (Lodge, Hansen, & Cottrell, 2016). There are several key points the authors wish to address in this reply. Most importantly, and aligned with the aims and focus…

Reimann, Peter – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
This paper argues that learning analytics (LA) can make contributions to learning research, in addition to aiming for improvements in learning and teaching practices in a solely applied sense. Indeed, there is potential for transforming learning research if certain approaches developed in LA were used more extensively to study learning. The…

Winebrenner, Susan – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
A recent study by Lodge, Hansen, and Cottrell (2016) was brought to the attention of the author of this commentary and motivated her to communicate this rebuttal regarding some of the suggested conclusions. The negative results for certain students of changing current classroom practices which have been noticeably successful for them in improving…

Hung, David; Jamaludin, Azilawati; Toh, Yancy; Lee, Shu Shing; Wu, Longkai; Shaari, Imran – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
A key thrust of education reform is the spread of innovative ideas and practices oriented toward school improvement and advancements in student's deep learning and teacher's professional development. Framed within concepts of scaling and diffusion, trajectories of innovation spread can afford explanatory and predictive understandings of adoption…

Pietarinen, Janne; Pyhältö, Kirsi; Soini, Tiina – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
The study aims to gain a better understanding of the complexity of teacher learning by exploring the elements of teachers' sense of professional agency in the two primary contexts of teachers' work: the professional community and the classroom. Moreover, the relationship with agentic learning in these contexts is studied. A total of 2310 primary…

Kuhn, Deanna – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
Why are some people more effective learners than others? Despite the centrality of learning to life success, solid, comprehensive answers to this question do not yet exist. Global ability constructs do not provide adequate answers, and the case is made here for the need to go beyond them to closely examine the learning process itself and the…

Jan, Mingfong – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
This paper examines two research perspectives on learning--developmental psychology and the learning sciences. We compare and contrast works from two leading researchers--Deanna Kuhn and Ann Brown--as a way to illustrate how questions and research on learning, such as problem-solving, inquiry, metacognition, self-directed learning, are raised and…

Lodge, Jason M.; Hansen, Louise; Cottrell, David – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
Learning styles have been widely accepted in pedagogical practice but suffer from a distinct lack of empirical support. While a diverse range of learning styles have been proposed, modality preference has received the most attention within educational research and practice. Supporters of this theory posit that each individual has a dominant sense…

Lee, Shu-Shing; Hung, David – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
This paper addresses how twenty-first century learning cultures can be enabled and spread in the Singapore school system by enacting curricular innovations and developing teachers' capacity for adaptivity. We appropriate understandings of adaptivity, including adaptive expertise, and contextualize it to the Singapore school system at the…

Saariaho, Emmi; Pyhältö, Kirsi; Toom, Auli; Pietarinen, Janne; Soini, Tiina – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
Self-regulative learning skills are extremely important contributors in student teacher learning. Also, interest in co-regulation in learning as a facilitator for pupils' self-regulation skills and an ability to learn how to support peers' regulated learning has increased significantly during the past decade. Still, our understanding of student…
