Computer Assisted Language Learning Vol. 31, No. 1 (2018) pp. 27–52
Different from the traditional term language input, affordance, an ecological term, has been deployed to analyze the perceived opportunities for second language (L2) learning an environment provides to L2 learners. L2 learning occurs only when the...
Language Learning & Technology Vol. 17, No. 2 pp. 193–219
Previous research (e.g., Belz & Thorne, 2006; Ware & O'Dowd, 2008) has discovered that language learning can be afforded through intercultural telecollaboration. From a sociocultural theoretical perspective, the current study...
Improving the Quality of Online Discussion: The Effects of Strategies Designed Based on Cognitive Load Theory Principles
Distance Education Vol. 34, No. 1 (2013) pp. 21–36

CALICO Journal Vol. 24, No. 2 (January 2007) pp. 291–311
This paper reports on a qualitative study investigating the viability of instant messenger (IM) interaction to facilitate intercultural learning in a foreign language class. Eight students in a Chinese as a foreign language (CFL) class participated...
Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 41, No. 6 (November 2013) pp. 1141–1152
The purpose of this study was to examine the learning process exhibited in restrained online debates in terms of to what extent each of Bloom's six levels of cognitive learning were exhibited among four types of message (argument, critique,...
Computers and Composition Vol. 27, No. 4 pp. 284–303
This paper reports a case study investigating how the use of instant messaging (IM) mediated ESL students’ motives in their participation in computer-mediated peer response (CMPR) tasks in an ESL academic writing class. Qualitative data including...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2013 (Jun 24, 2013) pp. 1932–1939
This paper focuses on extraneous cognitive load as the reason for lack of quality associated with conventional online discussion. Using the principles of cognitive load theory, four online discussion strategies were designed aiming at reducing the...
Learning, Media and Technology Vol. 35, No. 2 (June 2010) pp. 139–153
Virtual worlds have been linked with e-learning applications to create virtual learning environments (VLEs) for the past decade. However, while they can support many educational activities that extend both traditional on-campus teaching and distance ...
Developing a TPACK assessment framework for evaluating teachers’ knowledge and practice to provide ongoing feedback
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2010 (Jun 29, 2010) pp. 1980–1983
This paper reports findings from investigations of visual artifacts (teachers’ surveys, interviews, and video clips) of Chinese teachers teaching English in China. The authors constructed a Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK)...
The Conceptions of Learning Science by Laboratory among University Science-Major Students: Qualitative and Quantitative Analyses
Research in Science & Technological Education Vol. 34, No. 3 (2016) pp. 359–377
Background: The sophistication of students' conceptions of science learning has been found to be positively related to their approaches to and outcomes for science learning. Little research has been conducted to particularly investigate students'...
Journal of Applied Research and Technology Vol. 12, No. 2 (April 2014) pp. 223–229
Earthquakes, hurricanes, flooding and terrorist attacks pose a severe threat to our society. What’s more, when such a disaster happens, it can spread in a wide range with ubiquitous presence of a large-scale networked system. Therefore, the...
Internet Research Vol. 13, No. 2 (2003) pp. 134–38
Multicasting is a necessity for a broadband metro-area-network; however security problems exist with current multicast protocols. A stateful multicast access control mechanism, based on MAPE, is proposed. The architecture of MAPE is discussed, as...
Three-Dimensional Image Security System Combines the Use of Smart Mapping Algorithm and Fibonacci Transformation Technique
Journal of Applied Research and Technology Vol. 12, No. 6 (December 2014) pp. 1092–1102
In this paper, a three-dimensional (3D) image security system combines the use of the smart pixel mapping (SPM) algorithm and the Fibonacci transformation technique is proposed. In order to reconstruct orthoscopic 3D images with improved image...
An investigation of learners' collaborative knowledge construction performances and behavior patterns in an augmented reality simulation system
Computers & Education Vol. 68, No. 1 (October 2013) pp. 314–321
The purpose of this study was to investigate how a mobile collaborative augmented reality (AR) simulation system affects learners' knowledge construction behaviors and learning performances. In this study, 40 undergraduate students were recruited...
An Investigation of University Students' Collaborative Inquiry Learning Behaviors in an Augmented Reality Simulation and a Traditional Simulation
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 23, No. 5 (October 2014) pp. 682–691
The purpose of this study is to investigate and compare students' collaborative inquiry learning behaviors and their behavior patterns in an augmented reality (AR) simulation system and a traditional 2D simulation system. Their inquiry and...
Learning Behavior Analysis of a Ubiquitous Situated Reflective Learning System with Application to Life Science and Technology Teaching
Journal of Educational Technology & Society Vol. 21, No. 2 (2018) pp. 137–149
Education research has shown that reflective study can efficiently enhance learning, and the acquisition of knowledge and skills from real-life situations has become a focus of interest for scholars. The knowledge-learning model based on verbal...
Roles of Parents and Annotation Sharing in Children's Learning Behavior and Achievement Using E-Readers
Journal of Educational Technology & Society Vol. 18, No. 1 pp. 292–307
Although previous studies have highlighted the advantages of using e-books for learning, most have compared learning achieved with traditional textbooks with that achieved with e-books in a classroom situation. These studies focused on individual...
