Pre-school Teachers Internet Self-Efficacy and Preferences toward the Constructivist Internet-Based Learning Environments in Taiwan
Global Learn 2010 (May 17, 2010) pp. 3492–3499
This study intended to explore the relationships between teachers’ Internet self-efficacy (ISE) and their preferences toward constructivist Internet-based learning environments (CILE). The sample included 542 inservice pre-school teachers in Taiwan. ...
Computers & Education Vol. 58, No. 1 (January 2012) pp. 172–180
This study investigated split-attention and redundancy effects in a mobile learning environment on leaf morphology of plants as a function of different combinations of media. Eighty-one fifth-grade students were randomly assigned to the following...
Implementing clickers to assist learning in science lectures: The Clicker-Assisted Conceptual Change model
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 27, No. 6 (Jan 01, 2011) pp. 979–996
The purposes of this study were twofold. The first aim was to design and develop a clicker-based instructional model known as Clicker-Assisted Conceptual Change (CACC), based on the cognitive conflict approach for conceptual change, to help...
Development of a diagnostic system using a testing-based approach for strengthening student prior knowledge
Computers & Education Vol. 57, No. 2 (September 2011) pp. 1557–1570
Students learn new instructions well by building on relevant prior knowledge, as it affects how instructors and students interact with the learning materials. Moreover, studies have found that good prior knowledge can enable students to attain...
Journal of Educational Technology & Society Vol. 18, No. 2 pp. 336–348
Unlike most research, which has primarily examined the players' interest in or attitude toward game-based learning through questionnaires, the purpose of this empirical study is to explore students' engagement patterns by qualitative observation and ...
Interactive Learning Environments Vol. 24, No. 8 (2016) pp. 1795–1811
Clinical resources in nursing schools are always insufficient for satisfying the practice requirements of each student at the same time during a formal course session. Although several studies have applied information and communication technology to ...
