Kim, Mi Song; Xing, Xiaotong – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2019
Innovative literacy teaching and learning approaches have proved that multiliteracies enables teachers to work with culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students. However, few studies have shed light on examining Chinese teachers' understanding and practices of multiliteracies in Canada. To respond to this challenge, this qualitative case…

Fonteles Furtado, Pedro Gabriel; Hirashima, Tsukasa; Hayashi, Yusuke; Maeda, Kazushige – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2019
There has been a lack of research into conceptually teaching the structure of contextual problems to kindergarten students. This is despite the popularity of contextual problems and the difficulties that students have with them. This study focuses on creating a textless, image-based application that uses the Triplet Structure Model to teach about…

Kim, Mi Song; Keyhani, Najmeh – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2019
Research into informal STEM education over the past years has shown that informal learning environments increase students' learning in STEM. However, how STEM teachers learn in an informal setting remains unclear. Such educators who work in informal settings are not all required to have undergone teacher education or professional development, and…

Yeh, Charles Y. C.; Cheng, Hercy N. H.; Chen, Zhi-Hong; Liao, Calvin C. Y.; Chan, Tak-Wai – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2019
Conventional teacher-led instruction remains dominant in most elementary mathematics classrooms in Taiwan. Under such instruction, the teacher can rarely take care of all students. Many students may then continue to fall behind the standard of mathematics achievement and lose their interest in mathematics; they eventually give up on learning…

Kasperski, Ronen; Shany, Michal; Erez-Hod, Tal; Katzir, Tami – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2019
While computerized reading programs were found to enhance reading skills, less is known about their influence on reading self-concept (RSC). The current study aimed to examine short- and long-term effects of two versions of a computerized reading acceleration program (RAP) on reading skills and reading self-concept. One hundred thirty…

Horiguchi, Tomoya; Masuda, Tetsuhiro; Tomoto, Takahito; Hirashima, Tsukasa – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2019
In science education, building models of dynamical systems is a promising method for understanding various natural phenomena and artifacts with scientific concepts. It is, however, difficult to learn skills and concepts necessary for modeling. Though several model-building learning environments (MBEs) have been developed with potentially useful…

Morrison, Dirk; McCutheon, Jessica – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2019
Information and communication technologies have had an enormous impact on how we live, work, communicate, re-create, and connect with others. However, there is a paucity of research regarding older adult learners' adoption and adaptation of Internet-based tools, techniques, and resources to support their informal, self-directed lifelong learning…

Samuelsen, Jeanette; Chen, Weiqin; Wasson, Barbara – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2019
Learning analytics (LA) promises understanding and optimization of learning and learning environments. To enable richer insights regarding questions related to learning and education, LA solutions should be able to integrate data coming from many different data sources, which may be stored in different formats and have varying levels of structure.…

Ocheja, Patrick; Flanagan, Brendan; Ueda, Hiroshi; Ogata, Hiroaki – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2019
It is a common practice to issue a summary of a learner's learning achievements in form of a transcript or certificate. However, detailed information on the depth of learning and how learning or teachings were conducted is not present in the transcript of scores. This work presents the first practical implementation of a new platform for keeping…

Batiibwe, Marjorie Sarah Kabuye – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2019
The purpose of this paper was to review literature on the Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT) and how it has been used to understand the mediation between emerging technologies and teaching and learning in a mathematics classroom. Specifically, it aimed at understanding the genesis of CHAT and further analyzing the studies that have…

Tamatea, Laurence – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2019
Internationally, coding is increasingly introduced into primary and junior high schools (children generally aged between 5 and 15) on a compulsory basis, though not all stakeholders support this 'initiative'. In response to the public reception, discussion highlights popular argument around compulsory coding in school education. This is an…

Roschelle, Jeremy; Burke, Quinn – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2019
In this commentary on Interest-Driven Creator (IDC) theory, the authors reflect on the proposed three-step cycles of (i) sparking students' interest, (ii) fostering individual creativity, and (iii) inculcating lifelong learning habits. Each component of IDC theory pulls together a wide span of prior research and emphasizes active roles for…

Ilomäki, Liisa; Lakkala, Minna – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2018
The aim of this study was to create a model which describes the main elements for improving schools with digital technology and helps to reveal differences between schools and identify their best practices and challenges. The innovative digital school model (IDI school) offers a framework for research but also a research-based model for schools to…
