World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education 2008 (Nov 17, 2008) pp. 855–860
Abstract: The authors discuss the use of VB.Net as an authoring tool to create simulations for a web-supplemented class in statistics. VB.Net is used to produce small simulation programs so users can conduct experiments that they would not be able...
Project Lead The Way: Examining Teachers’ Perceptions and Interactions of a Pre-Engineering Curriculum with Middle & High School Students
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2005 (2005) pp. 3665–3666
This paper presents a brief overview of how Project Lead The Way pre-engineering curriculum is implemented in middle and high school classrooms across the United States. Studies have been conducted that examine the logistics of the Project Lead The...
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2012 (Mar 05, 2012) pp. 2536–2541
Generating reasonable example data is a non-trivial task, and generating example data that can be used for a successful educational simulation demonstration is significantly harder. This paper explores the process and presents a few guidelines for...
Teaching of Psychology Vol. 23, No. 4 (1996) pp. 252–56
Describes the use of online seminars as part of the curriculum of a distance education program in psychology for middle-aged adults. Addresses structural, educational, technical, and contextual issues, and evaluates the courses. Maintains that...
The Use of E-collaboration in Educational Technology and Development Courses at Saginaw Valley State University
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2011 (Mar 07, 2011) pp. 321–326
The potential for collaborative learning in higher education is well documented and is traditionally recognized through face-to-face interaction. More recently, studies show the benefits to computer-supported online collaboration or e-collaboration....
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2012 (Mar 05, 2012) pp. 370–375
Abstract: The recent technological strides in building sate of the art internet infrastructures and creating very sophisticated web development platforms have made today’s online learning environments very rich with multimedia educational resources...
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2010 (Mar 29, 2010) pp. 1015–1017
Abstract: A case study approach has been employed to describe the mentoring experiences of three master’s level, educational technology program graduates. Due to their successes within the program, each was encouraged to consider a career as...
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2010 (Mar 29, 2010) pp. 1912–1916
The authors discuss the use of VB.Net as an authoring tool to create a dice throwing simulation for use by teachers. VB.Net is used to produce a small simulation program so users can conduct experiments that they would not be able to do in reality....
Behaviour & Information Technology Vol. 27, No. 4 (July 2008) pp. 339–344
The aim of this paper is to examine the learning processes that subjects undertake when they start using gaze as computer input. A 7-day experiment with eight Japanese students was carried out to record novice users' eye movement data during typing...
Journal of Technology Education Vol. 15, No. 2 (2004) pp. 20–32
In this article, the author questions the role of technology teacher preparation programs that are based on an "industrial tool use" model to develop technology education teachers. It is the position of the authors that the manner by which ...
The Impact of Three-Dimensional Computational Modeling on Student Understanding of Astronomical Concepts: A Quantitative Analysis
International Journal of Science Education Vol. 26, No. 11 (Sep 17, 2004) pp. 1365–1378
The increased availability of computational modeling software has created opportunities for students to engage in scientific inquiry through constructing computer-based models of scientific phenomena. However, despite the growing trend of...
Teaching with Student Response Systems (SRS): Teacher-Centric Aspects that Can Negatively Affect Students' Experience of Using SRS
Research in Learning Technology Vol. 21, No. 3 (2013)
In this article, we describe and discuss the most significant teacher-centric aspects of student response systems (SRS) that we have found to negatively affect students' experience of using SRS in lecture settings. By doing so, we hope to...
Behaviour & Information Technology Vol. 30, No. 6 (2011) pp. 821–831
Gaze interaction affords hands-free control of computers. Pointing to and selecting small targets using gaze alone is difficult because of the limited accuracy of gaze pointing. This is the first experimental comparison of gaze-based interface tools ...
Experiences Obtained with Integration of Student Response Systems for iPod Touch and iPhone into e-Learning Environments
Electronic Journal of e-Learning Vol. 8, No. 2 (2010) pp. 179–190
A new type of Student Response System (SRS) based up on the latest wireless technologies and hand held mobile devices has been developed to enhance active learning methods and assess students' understanding. The key services involve a set of XML...
The Impact of Three-Dimensional Computational Modeling on Student Understanding of Astronomy Concepts: A Qualitative Analysis. Research Report
International Journal of Science Education Vol. 26, No. 13 (Oct 29, 2004) pp. 1555–1575
In this study, we explore an alternate mode for teaching and learning the dynamic, three-dimensional (3D) relationships that are central to understanding astronomical concepts. To this end, we implemented an innovative undergraduate course in which...
