Educational Technology Research and Development Vol. 59, No. 4 (August 2011) pp. 529–552
The success of an intervention depends not only upon its theoretical soundness, but also on proper implementation that reflects the guidelines derived from its theoretical conception. Debates surrounding the effectiveness of problem-based learning ...
An investigation of the role of causal reasoning methods in facilitating conceptual understanding of college students in physics
(2003) pp. 1–212
It is well documented that college students have difficulties in solving physics problems. Most researchers and educators agree that the students' difficulties largely result from a lack of conceptual understanding of the topic. This phenomenon is...
Global Learn 2010 (May 17, 2010) pp. 1442–1446
Some researchers have argued that the design of each individual problem within a Problem-based Learning (PBL) curriculum could have a number of impacts on student learning, such as students’ activation of appropriate prior knowledge and generation...
Educational Research Review Vol. 4, No. 2 (2009) pp. 118–141
The design of problems is crucial for the effectiveness of problem-based learning (PBL). Research has shown that PBL problems have not always been effective. Ineffective PBL problems could affect whether students acquire sufficient domain knowledge, ...
Educational Technology Research and Development Vol. 61, No. 3 (June 2013) pp. 365–384
Today, much problem solving is performed by teams, rather than individuals. The complexity of these problems has exceeded the cognitive capacity of any individual and requires a team of members to solve them. The success of solving these complex...
Definition, conceptualization, and utilization: A review of research on concept mapping as a pedagogical mindtool
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2011 (Jun 27, 2011) pp. 3004–3011
A vast body of research has investigated the effects of concept mapping on students’ development of problem solving skills, conceptual change, and knowledge transfer. However, the definitions of concept mapping vary considerably among researchers...
Seeing the Landscape and the Forest Floor: Changes Made to Improve the Connectivity of Concepts in a Hybrid Problem-Based Learning Curriculum
Teaching in Higher Education Vol. 15, No. 1 (February 2010) pp. 15–27
Problem-based learning (PBL) curricula utilise authentic problems that are based in the real-world of practice. This very characteristic enables students to develop an intimate knowledge about the intricacies of practice, metaphorically, seeing the...
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 35, No. 2 (May 10, 2019)
The concept of computers as cognitive tools has been revisited to provide insight into the motivational and social dimension in light of the emerging technologies. Central to this concept are the two opposing philosophical views: learning from...
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2016 (Mar 21, 2016) pp. 1178–1185
In 2013, 1:1 technology initiative was implemented at a Midwestern rural high school. It included funding that was projected to sustain all necessary technology for 12 years. In total, there are around 700 MacBook Air laptops with 1 laptop being...
Journal of Educational Technology Systems Vol. 33, No. 4 (2005) pp. 437–460
As part of an ongoing research program, the authors investigated the use of single-voiced narration and multi-voiced characterizations/monologues in a formative evaluation study of an instructional lesson on information processing. That lesson...
Integration of Narrowband (Internet) and Broadband (TV) Satellite Technologies for Teaching and Learning
WebNet World Conference on the WWW and Internet 1999 (1999) pp. 1094–1099
This paper describes a project funded by the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Link-to-Learn technology testbeds. The purpose of this project was to design, develop, implement, and evaluate a hybrid information delivery system that integrates the...
Computers & Education Vol. 64 (May 2013) pp. 127–130
The six papers in this special issue of "Computers and Education" honoring Professor David H. Jonassen are diverse in nature. They also reflect differing interpretations of the implications of Jonassen's work for research and development focused on...
Journal of Interactive Learning Research Vol. 26, No. 3 (July 2015) pp. 229–252
An effective learning community helps foster positive student learning experiences and outcomes. However, in distance learning environments, the communication barriers inevitably hinder the interaction among the students because of the lower levels...
