Perrault, Evan K. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2018
Despite improved spam filtering technology, phishing continues to be a prevalent threat for college students. The current study found that approximately 4-in-10 of the students surveyed (N = 462) indicate they do not know what phishing is and the threat it poses. Students also report initially overestimating their confidence to successfully…

Huh, Yeol; Reigeluth, Charles M. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2018
With growing interest in and popularity of online learning and lifelong learners, students' ability to be engaged in self-regulated learning (SRL) has become more important. Moreover, online learning is becoming an important feature of K-12 education. Although SRL is known to be important and teachable, little research has been conducted on…

Ha, Oai; Fang, Ning – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2018
An innovative educational technology called interactive virtual and physical manipulatives (VPM) is developed to improve students' spatial skills. With VPM technology, not only can students touch and play with real-world physical manipulatives in their hands but also they can see how the corresponding virtual manipulatives (i.e., computer…

Liu, Han-Chin – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2018
Multimedia students' dependence on information from the outside world can have an impact on their ability to identify and locate information from multiple resources in learning environments and thereby affect the construction of mental models. Field dependence-independence has been used to assess the ability to extract essential information from…

Teng, Chin-Hung; Chen, Jr-Yi; Chen, Zhi-Hong – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2018
Although the learning of programming language is critical in science and technology education, it might be difficult for some students, especially novices. One possible reason might be the fact that programming language, especially for three-dimensional (3D) applications, is too complex and abstract for these students to understand. Programming…

Yagci, Mustafa – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2018
In the relevant literature, it is often debated whether learning programming requires high-level thinking skills, the lack of which consequently results in the failure of students in programming. The complex nature of programming and individual differences, including study approaches, thinking styles, and the focus of supervision, all have an…
