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…

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…

Hall, Elaine – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
The author has been asked to respond to Lodge, Hansen, and Cottrell's recent (2015) paper in this journal and they have done a very thorough and scholarly job of dissecting the weaknesses of modality preference theories. They clearly and carefully analyse the nature of the evidence for modality preference and conclude that there is little if any…

Zhang, Yibin; Laurillard, Diana – Learning: Research and Practice, 2015
In order to facilitate their teaching design, more teachers are beginning to engage in collective efforts, with some Chinese teachers also now sharing their resources online to plan their teaching. The learning design support tool described here (the Learning Designer), resulting from an interdisciplinary research project in the UK, provides a new…

Nathan, Mitchell J.; Martinez, Chelsea V. J. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2015
The question of the relationship between gesture production and mental models was explored in three experiments focusing on inference making when learning from reading a scientific text. Participants engaged in one-on-one interviews after reading an illustrated tutorial on the human circulatory system. Participants gestured more frequently when…

Kapur, Manu – Learning: Research and Practice, 2015
I advance a theoretically and empirically-grounded case for designing for and learning from failure, and instantiate it in a learning design called Productive Failure (PF). I describe the key mechanisms and the design principles of PF. The PF learning design comprises a generation and exploration phase followed by a consolidation and knowledge…

Eberle, Julia; Stegmann, Karsten; Fischer, Frank – Learning: Research and Practice, 2015
We argue that social network analysis is a useful methodology to study and to extend scholarly knowledge on learning through legitimate peripheral participation in communities of practice. We first review work on legitimate peripheral participation and show that research on this topic currently focuses on the adoption of practices. Then we…

Pang, Ming Fai; Go, Luis – Learning: Research and Practice, 2015
Parents in dysfunctional family situations and those in intact well-functioning families have distinct requirements for parental learning and parent education. For intact well-functioning families, a developmental-educational paradigm for parent education is more appropriate. Although school-based parent education is ideal for well-functioning…
