Exploring students' computational practice, design and performance of problem-solving through a visual programming environment
Computers & Education Vol. 95, No. 1 (April 2016) pp. 202–215
This study aims to advocate that a visual programming environment offering graphical items and states of a computational problem could be helpful in supporting programming learning with computational problem-solving. A visual problem-solving...
Educational Technology & Society Vol. 11, No. 2 (2008) pp. 27–40
Recent advances in ubiquitous computing technologies have brought reality augmentation of traditional objects to context-aware and social supports. Although a significant proportion of students prefer poring over traditional paper textbooks over...
Journal of Educational Technology & Society Vol. 17, No. 3 pp. 14–26
In a classroom, obtaining active, whole-focused, and engaging learning results from a design is often difficult. In this study, we propose a self-observation model that employs an instinctive interface for classroom active learning. Students can...
A ubiquitous discussion forum: Introducing mobile phones and voice discussion into a web discussion forum
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2005 (Jun 27, 2005) pp. 867–874
Abstract: Online discussion forums are available for users to share knowledge in simple and popular platforms. However, there are several problems existed in web discussion forums that could interfere with the educational process, such as lack of...
Exploring the Possibility of Using Humanoid Robots as Instructional Tools for Teaching a Second Language in Primary School
Educational Technology & Society Vol. 13, No. 2 (2010) pp. 13–24
As robot technologies develop, many researchers have tried to use robots to support education. Studies have shown that robots can help students develop problem-solving abilities and learn computer programming, mathematics, and science. However, few...
Educational Technology & Society Vol. 16, No. 4 (2013) pp. 111–121
A number of studies have been devoted to investigating the influence of educational agents on different aspects of student learning. However, little attention has been paid to the effects of the level-up mechanism of educational agents on students...
Strengthening Social Networks in Online Discussion Forums to Facilitate Help Seeking for Solving Problems
Journal of Educational Technology & Society Vol. 21, No. 4 (2018) pp. 39–50
Help seeking is regarded as an important learning strategy that reflects students' metacognitive and domainspecific skills and knowledge. This study developed a proactive online discussion forum that strengthens social networks in an online...
Knowledge Sharing among University Students Facilitated with a Creative Commons Licensing Mechanism: A Case Study in a Programming Course
Journal of Educational Technology & Society Vol. 17, No. 3 pp. 154–167
Creative Commons (CC) mechanism has been suggested as a potential means to foster a reliable environment for online knowledge sharing activity. This study investigates the role of the CC mechanism in supporting knowledge sharing among a group of...
Computers & Education Vol. 126, No. 1 (November 2018) pp. 115–128
Help-seeking is an important aspect of self-regulated learning (SRL), but students may have ineffective help-seeking behaviors. For example, some students are unaware of their need to seek help, and some often seek executive help merely to obtain...
Computers & Education Vol. 88, No. 1 (October 2015) pp. 215–226
This study proposes a negotiation-based approach to combine the notion of adaptivity (system-controlled adaptation) and adaptability (user-controlled adaptation) for an adaptive learning system. The system suggests adaptations and the student also...
Journal of Educational Technology & Society Vol. 15, No. 2 (2012) pp. 62–72
Animated pedagogical agents with characteristics such as facial expressions, gestures, and human emotions, under an interactive user interface are attractive to students and have high potential to promote students' learning. This study proposes a...
