An extensive research literature in education and psychology demonstrates positive effects of perspective-taking on various forms of learning. Until recently, perspective-taking has been limited to the mental simulation of how someone with different ...
Designing for Learning Conversations: How Parents Support Children's Science Learning within an Immersive Simulation
Science Education Vol. 100, No. 5 (2016) pp. 877–902
This research investigates the social learning affordances of a room-sized, immersive, and interactive augmented reality simulation environment designed to support children's understanding of basic physics concepts in a science center. Conversations ...
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning Vol. 58, No. 1 (January 2014) pp. 56–63
The potential of augmented reality technologies (AR) for learning in a social and informal setting has been recognized, but little is yet known about the kinds of learning interactions it promotes and supports. In this paper, we describe initial...
Educational Technology & Society Vol. 15, No. 4 (2012) pp. 344–355
Efforts to improve online learning have focused primarily on the technology platform for delivering educational content and supporting student discourse. In this paper we describe an alternative approach that invokes two powerful forces behind human ...
Educational Researcher Vol. 42, No. 8 (November 2013) pp. 445–452
The authors describe an emerging paradigm of educational research that pairs theories of embodied learning with a class of immersive technologies referred to as "mixed reality" (MR). MR environments merge the digital with the physical,...
International Journal of Science Education Vol. 31, No. 3 (February 2009) pp. 419–438
Interactive simulations are entering mainstream science education. Their effects on cognition and learning are often framed by the legacy of information processing, which emphasized amodal problem solving and conceptual organization. In contrast,...
Computers & Education Vol. 95, No. 1 (April 2016) pp. 174–187
Computer simulations have been shown to be effective instruments for teaching students about difficult concepts, particularly in the STEM disciplines. Emerging interface technologies are expanding the modalities with which learners can interact with ...
An Interactive Cultural Transect: Designing, Deploying, and Evaluating an Online Virtual-Abroad Learning Experience
Gifted Education International Vol. 28, No. 1 (January 2012) pp. 84–95
This pilot project conducted by researchers from the University of Central Florida (UCF) seeks to answer the question: Does a real-time, two-way, mobile, remote webcasting system have special properties for learning compared with traditional...
