Formative research on an instructional design model for the design of computer simulation for teaching statistical concepts
(2009) pp. 1–203
The instructional problem of a superficial understanding still prevails in current education. Many educators seek solutions from technology to remedy the shadow learning problem. But, as researchers indicate, technology alone does not cause learning....
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2009 (Mar 02, 2009) pp. 1476–1479
Numerous studies have pointed out that students, as well as teachers, express frustration about difficulties encountered when learning or teaching statistics. Although computer simulations may offer opportunities for students to try out concepts,...
Examining the Effects of Combining Self-Explanation Principles with an Educational Game on Learning Science Concepts
Interactive Learning Environments Vol. 21, No. 2 (2013) pp. 104–115
Educational researchers have indicated that although computer games have the potential to promote students' motivation and engagement, the work on how to design effective games that fulfil educational purposes is still in its infancy. This...
Exploring the Effects of Integrating Self-Explanation into a Multi-User Game on the Acquisition of Scientific Concepts
Interactive Learning Environments Vol. 24, No. 4 (2016) pp. 844–858
The purpose of this study was to examine the impacts of embedding collaboration into a game with a self-explanation design for supporting the acquisition of light and shadow concepts. The participants were 184 fourth graders who were randomly...
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning Vol. 54, No. 1 (January 2010) pp. 58–61
The Goal-based Scenario method is a design model for applying simulations to instruction. This portfolio item describes an implementation of Goal-based Scenarios for the teaching of statistics. The application demonstrates how simulations can be...
Investigation of High School Students' Online Science Information Searching Performance: The Role of Implicit and Explicit Strategies
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 21, No. 2 (April 2012) pp. 246–254
