Pérez-Vázquez, Elena; Lorenzo, Gonzalo; Lledó, Asunción; Lorenzo-Lledó, Alejandro – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2020
Irruption of technologies in the educational context, specifically robotics has meant changes in the use of learning tools for students with ASD. In this sense, the inclusion of robots in intervention with these students allowed to design simpler and more controlled learning environments, adjusted to the needs of these students. From this line of…

Hamilton, Megan; Clarke-Midura, Jody; Shumway, Jessica F.; Lee, Victor R. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2020
This emerging technology report describes computational toys as tools for learning and building computational thinking (CT) skills in young children. We present both a framework to categorize computational toys as well as a separate framework to evaluate the toys' effectiveness for teaching CT skills. We then apply our frameworks to thirty…

Jung, Sung Eun; Lee, Kyunghwa; Cherniak, Shara; Cho, Eunji – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2020
This case study focused on the robotics learning process of Mark (a pseudonym), a Latino-American second grader diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Drawing on Polanyi's (Personal knowledge: towards a post-critical philosophy [Kindle version], 1958/2015) notion of "tacit knowing" and "dwelling in tools," we attempted to…

Hembre, Oda J.; Warth, Line Lundvoll – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2020
iPads have become increasingly popular as tools for teaching in early education. With their multifaceted and interactive affordances as handheld and mobile devices, they have been ascribed great potential to change and expand on classroom practice. However, the iPad often becomes just another technology hype in education, and explanations often…

Fokides, Emmanuel; Atsikpasi, Penelope; Karageorgou, Dorothea – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2020
Primary school students have trouble grasping concepts related to plants. Their misconceptions are also notable. On the other hand, mobile devices (such as tablets) and their apps, are considered effective educational tools. For examining whether the same holds true in relation to plants, we carried out a project, having as a target-group 263…

Fung, Chak-Him – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2020
STEM education is essential but challenging. Educators generally believe that both practical work and flipped learning facilitate STEM education. Practical work is useful in establishing linkages among STEM-related disciplines as well as the connections between knowledge and the real-life problems while flipped learning allows teachers to spend…

Nuhoglu Kibar, Pinar; Gündüz, Abdullah Yasin; Akkoyunlu, Buket – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2020
Flipped learning is a type of blended learning that reverses traditional conceptions about pre-class and in-class activities. This pedagogical approach offers students the opportunity to exert more control over their learning. However, teachers should monitor whether in-class activities deepen pre-learning. In this paper, we present students'…

Stec, Melissa; Smith, Carolyn; Jacox, Emily – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2020
Technology integration into post-secondary education may enhance curriculum delivery and student learning experiences. However technology integration also requires faculty to adapt current teaching practices. Many factors contribute to faculty members' successful integration of technology into curriculum. In fall 2013, the Bachelor of Science in…
