Fostering High School Students' Conceptual Understandings about Seasons: The Design of a Technology-Enhanced Learning Environment
Research in Science Education Vol. 38, No. 2 (March 2008) pp. 127–147
The purpose of this study is to understand in what ways a technology-enhanced learning (TEL) environment supports learning about the causes of the seasons. The environment was designed to engage students in five cognitive phases: Contextualisation,...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2005 (Jun 27, 2005) pp. 2740–2747
This study investigates the effects of school size on teachers' adoption of technology in classrooms. Using national survey data collected from 940 science and mathematics teachers at junior high schools in Taiwan, we employed factor analyses, log...
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET Vol. 9, No. 4 (October 2010) pp. 58–65
Modeling of a natural phenomenon is of value in science learning and increasingly emphasized as an important component of science education. However, previous research has shown that secondary school students encounter difficulties when engaging in...
Factors Influencing Junior High School Teachers' Computer-Based Instructional Practices Regarding Their Instructional Evolution Stages
Educational Technology & Society Vol. 10, No. 4 (2007) pp. 118–130
Sandholtz, Ringstaff, & Dwyer (1996) list five stages in the "evolution" of a teacher's capacity for computer-based instruction--entry, adoption, adaptation, appropriation and invention--which hereafter will be called the teacher's computer-based...
Do Teachers' Instructional Evolution and Teaching Seniority Affect Educational Innovation with Technology?
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2005 (Jun 27, 2005) pp. 2834–2837
This study explores teachers' instructional evolution and teaching seniority that affect teaching practice of computing technology in classrooms. We conducted a national survey in Taiwan and collected about six hundred science and mathematics...
International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education Vol. 6, No. 1 (March 2008) pp. 63–85
Researchers in educational technology have searched for factors to explain teachers' acceptance and resistance to using technology for instruction. Among the many identified factors, however, organizational and school factors have not yet been...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2008 (Jun 30, 2008) pp. 2937–2941
The study aims to examine the impacts of scaffoldings on student questioning, analyzing and explaining abilities in a mobile learning environment which leads them to use probes, accompanying software (DataStudio) and an online forum for scientific...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 23, No. 1 (February 2014) pp. 183–197
There is a distance between the power that whole class dialogic discussions (WCDD) may offer to the science class and their use in practice. Teachers' attitudes toward WCDD are part of the problem. The aims of this study were twofold: (a) to...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 21, No. 5 (October 2012) pp. 588–606
