Learning Analytics and Computational Techniques for Detecting and Evaluating Patterns in Learning: An Introduction to the Special Issue
Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 22, No. 4 (2013) pp. 511–520
The learning sciences community's interest in learning analytics (LA) has been growing steadily over the past several years. Three recent symposia on the theme (at the American Educational Research Association 2011 and 2012 annual conferences,...
Learning in Rural Communities: Fear of Information Communications Technology Leading to Lifelong Learning?
Research in Post-Compulsory Education Vol. 6, No. 3 (2001) pp. 261–76
Two projects provided learning activities in information and communications technologies for rural unemployed people in Britain, primarily women. Questionnaires and focus groups revealed that many were motivated by the desire to support their...
Revising an Extension Education Website for Limited Resource Audiences Using Social Marketing Theory
Journal of Extension Vol. 49, No. 6 (December 2011)
Spend Smart Eat Smart (SSES), a unique website combining nutrition and food buying education for limited resource audiences (LRAs), was revised using social marketing theory to make it more appealing and relevant to LRAs (25-40 years). Focus groups...
Journal of Cognition and Development Vol. 6, No. 1 (February 2005) pp. 65–88
Three studies examined whether mathematics can propel the development of physical understanding. In Experiment 1, 10-year-olds solved balance scale problems that used easy-to-count discrete quantities or hard-to-count continuous quantities. Discrete ...
Journal of Extension Vol. 50, No. 5 (October 2012)
Concern about young families' ability to cope with rising food prices resulted in creating Spend Smart. Eat Smart (SSES), a website focused on budget-friendly nutrition information for limited resource audiences (LRA). SSES was redesigned using ...
Changing Middle School Teachers’ Algebra Content Knowledge and Teaching Self-Efficacy Beliefs Through Technology-Enriched Professional Development
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2015 (Mar 02, 2015) pp. 3426–3433
We report results of an investigation of a pilot professional development program. Twenty-three grade 7 and 8 inservice mathematics teachers participated in three sessions of face-to-face, media-rich, job-embedded PD designed to align with the CCSS. ...
Continuous Recording and Interobserver Agreement Algorithms Reported in the "Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis" (1995-2005)
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis Vol. 42, No. 1 (2009) pp. 165–169
We reviewed all research articles in 10 recent volumes of the "Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis (JABA)": Vol. 28(3), 1995, through Vol. 38(2), 2005. Continuous recording was used in the majority (55%) of the 168 articles reporting data on free...
Mixed Methods Evaluation of Statewide Implementation of Mathematics Education Technology for K-12 Students
An extensive body of research has demonstrated that the use in a K-12 classroom of technology, such as the Internet, computers, and software programs, enhances the learning of mathematics (Cheung & Slavin, 2013; Cohen & Hollebrands, 2011)....
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2015 (Mar 02, 2015) pp. 2676–2684
Personalized learning software is designed to meet the differing needs of learners, allowing them to gain competency at their own pace. Research is needed to understand the effectiveness of the many products being developed and made available to...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 19, No. 4 (August 2010) pp. 370–386
We present results of an investigation of preservice secondary mathematics and science teachers' conceptions of project-based instruction (PBI) and their enactments of PBI in apprentice (student) teaching. We evaluated their thinking and...
Journal of Interactive Learning Research Vol. 24, No. 3 (July 2013) pp. 301–328
In this paper, we present two studies examining how high school students learn to program in a mobile, social programming environment that we have developed and deployed ("IPRO"). IPRO is delivered, with an associated curriculum, as an iPod Touch...
Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 22, No. 4 (2013) pp. 564–599
Many have suggested that tinkering plays a critical role in novices learning to program, and recent work in learning analytics (Baker & Yacef, 2009 Blikstein, 2011) allows us to describe new relationships in the process. Using learning analytics,...
Cortical Activations during a Computer-Based Fraction Learning Game: Preliminary Results from a Pilot Study
Technology, Knowledge and Learning Vol. 20, No. 3 (2015) pp. 339–355
Advances in educational neuroscience have made it possible for researchers to conduct studies that observe concurrent behavioral (i.e., task performance) and neural (i.e., brain activation) responses to naturalistic educational activities. Such...
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis Vol. 42, No. 3 (2009) pp. 527–539
The three algorithms most frequently selected by behavior-analytic researchers to compute interobserver agreement with continuous recording were used to assess the accuracy of data recorded from video samples on handheld computers by 12 observers....
