Gaston, Joseph P.; Havard, Byron – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
The purpose of this study was to determine how Collaborative Video Production (CVP) influences students' perceived learning, content interest, and school interest. The theoretical framework is based on the Four Phase Interest Model developed by Renninger and Hidi (2016). The sample consisted of 242 students and 13 teachers representing grades 2…

Ponners, Pamela Jones; Piller, Yulia – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
Research shows that well before children can verbalize their thoughts, they often create internal visual models of what scientists are and what they do (Farland-Smith 2012). Therefore, discovering, understanding and recording a student's own stereotypical perceptions are crucial to science instructors, as it is believed that perceptions may affect…

Gronseth, Susie; Hebert, Waneta – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
In this study, the use of the mobile instant messaging (MIM) tool "GroupMe" was explored in the higher education context. The tool was used to facilitate online course discussions, small group work, and other course communications in face-to-face and online sections of two graduate educational technology courses. Over 900 postings were…

Curry, John H.; Jackson, Sean R.; Benchic, Maria L. – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
In the fall of 2012, Mason County High School implemented a 1:1 iPad program which placed the devices into the hands of every teacher and student. Researchers examined data from student and teacher interviews, program maintenance data and instructional change examples to answer the question, "Did it work?" With digital and blended…

Roman, Tiffany A.; Racek, Jon – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
Three-dimensional (3-D) virtual environments have key affordances that can improve learning, particularly when context, culture, and pedagogical aims are aligned to a given learning situation. One challenge in detailing effective uses of 3-D virtual environments in teaching and learning contexts is that the design judgments involved are not always…

Vu, Phu; Fredrickson, Scott; Gaskill, Martonia – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
This study examined how one-to-one initiatives were conducted in rural public K-12 educational settings in a mid-western US state. Research data were gathered from interview responses from 15 school personnel who were either educational technology directors or school principals at 15 rural public K-12 schools. The study found that when schools…

Noori, Abdullah – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
The use of technology is an integral component in the learning and teaching of languages in the twenty-first Century. Around the globe, studies have been carried out to investigate the integration of technology in language classrooms. However, there is a lack of empirical research on this subject in Afghanistan. Therefore, the purpose of this…

West, Richard E. – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
Despite the emphasis on open educational resources in our field, there are surprisingly few examples of open textbooks in our field, as well as in graduate education generally, despite the findings from research that these books can be affordable, high quality, and advantageous to students and faculty. In this article I describe one process for…

Trust, Torrey; Horrocks, Brian – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
Communities of practice offer situated, social and distributed learning experiences that support the professional growth of teachers. However, while some communities of practice are successful, others flounder. This manuscript reports the findings of a qualitative study that examined teachers' experiences in the Discovery Educator Network, a…

Chen, Bodong – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
Supporting collaborative discourse with discussion forums in a typical Learning Management System (LMS) remains challenging. This article reports on a design case of an "unLMS" approach, which aimed to devise a networked learning environment not based on an LMS for collaborative discourse in an online course. To support such discourse,…

Sentz, Justin; Stefaniak, Jill – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
Research focusing on the complexities faced by instructional designers have called for pedagogical strategies to equip instructional designers with the ability to problem solve and make decisions. One of the most widely studied strategies for managing cognitive load is the use of worked examples, which provides an alternative to traditional…

Safadel, Parviz; White, David – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
Spatial understanding of molecules in molecular biology provides a better understanding of molecules in isolation and relation to their next elements. Augmented reality (AR) has recently been developed as a computer interface that enables the users to see the real world with virtual objects superimposed on it. We report a method that shows the use…

Zydney, Janet Mannheimer; McKimmy, Paul; Lindberg, Rachel; Schmidt, Matthew – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
Here or There (HOT) instruction is a blended synchronous approach that enables students from on-campus ("here") or a remote location ("there") to participate together in class activities in real time. The purpose of this article is to share three different cases at two universities that illustrate different implementations of…
