Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 27, No. 4 (2018) pp. 632–665
Designers who create computer-based learning experiences for places like museums, out-of-school programs, and homes face a number of challenges related to the informal nature of such settings. Designs must generally function on their own without the ...
International Journal of Game-Based Learning Vol. 6, No. 1 (January 2016) pp. 1–17
Video games offer an exciting opportunity for learners to engage in computational thinking in informal contexts. This paper describes a genre of learning environments called constructionist video games that are especially well suited for developing...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 25, No. 1 (2016) pp. 127–147
Science and mathematics are becoming computational endeavors. This fact is reflected in the recently released Next Generation Science Standards and the decision to include "computational thinking" as a core scientific practice. With this...
"Whoa! We're Going Deep in the Trees!": Patterns of Collaboration around an Interactive Information Visualization Exhibit
Pryce Davis; Michael Horn; Florian Block; Brenda Phillips; E Margaret Evans; Judy Diamond; Chia Shen
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 10, No. 1 (March 2015) pp. 53–76
In this paper we present a qualitative analysis of natural history museum visitor interaction around a multi-touch tabletop exhibit called "DeepTree" that we designed around concepts of evolution and common descent. DeepTree combines...

Teachers, administrators, researchers, reformers, government leaders, parents, and others have long extolled the benefits that computer-based learning could have in schools: (1) Educational video games could make learning fun and motivating; and (2) ...
Engineering Design Graphics Journal Vol. 54, No. 2 (1990) pp. 3–9
An algorithm is described for generating smooth curves of first-order continuity. The algorithm is composed of several cubic Bezier curves joined together at the user defined control points. Introduced is a tension control parameter which can be set ...
