Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia Vol. 17, No. 2 (April 2008) pp. 259–277
Previous work applying cognitive load theory has demonstrated the effect of various text/graphic/narration relations on learning using multimedia material. Other work has looked at how the degree of integration between the text and graphics...
Face-to-Face, Hybrid, or Online?: Issues Faculty Face Redesigning an Introductory Engineering Graphics Course
Engineering Design Graphics Journal Vol. 73, No. 1 (2009) pp. 25–31
A hybrid introductory course was developed and piloted during the Fall 2007 semester in three laptop sections (i.e., all of the students owned and brought laptops to class each day). The online portion of the course included voiced-over content...
Journal of Educational Computing Research Vol. 21, No. 1 (1999) pp. 55–73
Examines the introduction of electronic mail into three elementary schools. A contingency model of technology adoption by organizations was used to develop the instruments and interpret results. Findings indicated that a majority of the contingency...
Journal of College Science Teaching Vol. 35, No. 3 (2005)
Lab reports are the dreaded assignments of the laboratory course. Students dislike them, because they can be tedious and time-consuming. Instructors dislike them, because they significantly increase the grading load. For this reason, lab reports are ...
Designing a Technology-Based Science Lesson: Student Teachers Grapple with an Authentic Problem of Practice
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 11, No. 4 (2003) pp. 463–481
This project used techniques from problem-based learning to aid students in developing a technology-based science lesson. In this case, the "problem" students were asked to solve, was that of combining curriculum knowledge and pedagogical skills to...
Educational Researcher Vol. 44, No. 4 (May 2015) pp. 252–254
This response to Perna et al. provides an alternate approach to research on massive open online courses (MOOCs). We argue that a student-centered, theory-driven conceptualization and methodological approaches allow us to move beyond descriptive...
Journal of Technology Education Vol. 13, No. 1 (2001) pp. 5–16
A study of 54 technology education majors and 35 other education majors found the following: 84% of technology and 91% of other majors owned computers; there was little difference in computer use by major or class level; technology majors used...
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia Vol. 20, No. 1 (January 2011) pp. 21–42
This study is part of an ongoing research project examining middle school girls’ attention to and interpretation of visual representations of DNA replication. Specifically, this research examined differences between two different versions of a...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 14, No. 3 (September 2005) pp. 353–365
Visual representations play a critical role in the communication of science concepts for scientists and students alike. However, recent research suggests that novice students experience difficulty extracting relevant information from representations....
