Patterns of use of an agent-based model and a system dynamics model: The application of patterns of use and the impacts on learning outcomes
Computers & Education Vol. 54, No. 2 (February 2010) pp. 392–403
A classification system that was developed for the use of agent-based models was applied to strategies used by school-aged students to interrogate an agent-based model and a system dynamics model. These were compared, and relationships between...
Education and Information Technologies Vol. 21, No. 6 (2016) pp. 1877–1894
This paper introduces system dynamics modeling to understand, visualize and explore technology integration in schools, through the development of a theoretical model of technology-related change in teachers' practice. Technology integration is a...
Collaborative Process Analysis Coding Scheme (CPACS): Examining the Macro- and Micro- Level of Students’ Discourse in a Virtual World
International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments Vol. 4, No. 2 (April 2013) pp. 19–49
The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the value of using discourse analysis to understand users’ interactions in a scenario-based virtual environment. This study investigated six dyads’ synchronous discourses while they worked side-by-side to...
ASCILITE - Australian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education Annual Conference 2007 (2007) pp. 887–897
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 34, No. 6 (Dec 18, 2018)
Digital educational technologies, like communication technologies more generally, can undermine the tyranny of distance. If we are not careful, we can slip into thinking that they make space and place irrelevant. This is not the case, as the papers...
Discovering indicators of successful collaboration using tense: Automated extraction of patterns in discourse
British Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 45, No. 3 (May 23, 2014) pp. 461–470
This paper describes a technique for locating indicators of success within the data collected from complex learning environments, proposing an application of e-research to access learner processes and measure and track group progress. The technique...
Working the system: Development of a system model of technology integration to inform learning task design
British Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 50, No. 1 (January 2019) pp. 326–341
There has been extensive investigation into factors affecting digital technology integration in learning and teaching, but the complexity of integration continues to elude understanding. Thus, questions about how digital technologies can be best...
Computers & Education Vol. 72, No. 1 (March 2014) pp. 209–219
With the advent of information technology, emails have gained wide acceptability among students as an asynchronous communication tool. According to the current pedagogy literature the overall trend of the use of email communication by university...

Australasian Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 34, No. 2 (Apr 27, 2018)
A number of researchers have explored the role and nature of design in education, proposing a diverse array of life cycle models. Design plays subtly different roles in each of these models. The learning design research community is shifting its...
