This paper examines chat room interactions in an on-line course given at Teachers College, Columbia University for their power to construct the traditional class frame in the on-line environment. Utilizing the framework of conversational analysis,...
Journal of Interactive Learning Research Vol. 20, No. 3 (July 2009) pp. 337–357
This article argues for the use of self-study as a research methodology for learning technology scholars to advance knowledge and improve practice in the use of emerging technologies in the classroom. It reports on a self-study conducted on the use...
Educational Technology & Society Vol. 14, No. 1 (2011) pp. 55–65
This paper presents the results of a micro-genetic analysis of the development of a creative solution arrived at by students working collaboratively to solve a robotics problem in a sixth grade science classroom. Results indicate that four aspects...
Journal of Research in Science Teaching Vol. 45, No. 3 (March 2008) pp. 373–394
This paper reports the results of a study of the relationship of robotics activity to the use of science literacy skills and the development of systems understanding in middle school students. Twenty-six 11-12-year-olds (22 males and 4 females)...
The ideal science student: Exploring the relationship of students’ perceptions to their problem solving activity in a robotics context
Journal of Interactive Learning Research Vol. 23, No. 3 (July 2012) pp. 273–308
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship of middle school students’ perceptions of the ideal science student to their problem solving activity and conceptual understanding in the applied science area of robotics. Twenty-six 11 and 12 ...

This article presents a systematic review of research related to the use of robotics construction kits (RCKs) in P-12 learning in the STEM disciplines for typically developing children. The purpose of this review is to configure primarily...
Educational Technology Research and Development Vol. 57, No. 5 (October 2009) pp. 613–627
While the importance of viewing learning as knowledge creation is gradually recognized (Paavola et al. Computer-supported collaborative learning: foundations for a CSCL community 2002; Rev Educ Res 74:557-576 2004), an important question remains to...
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 17, No. 1 (January 2009) pp. 109–142
Much educational software is designed from a specific pedagogical stance. How teachers conceive of the pedagogical stance underlying the design will affect how they utilize the technology; these conceptions may vary from teacher to teacher and from...
Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 24, No. 1 (2015) pp. 5–52
This case study examines the role of playful talk in negotiating the "how" of collaborative group work in a 6th-grade science classroom. Here we develop and test a Vygotsky-derived hypothesis that postulates playful talk as a mechanism for ...
Association for Educational Communications and Technology Annual Meeting 2004 (October 2005)
Forty years ago, Robert Gagne published the first edition of his book The Conditions of Learning (1965) in which he proposed nine events of instruction that provide a sequence for organizing a lesson. These events remain the foundation of current...
