International Journal of Designs for Learning Vol. 8, No. 1 (Jun 24, 2017)
Many educators view makerspaces as a means of increasing student engagement in K-12 classrooms. As faculty and staff of the College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan, we have noted low comfort levels in using and experimenting with...
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom Vol. 21, No. 1 (2016) pp. 22–28
Teachers increasingly use virtual manipulatives and other apps on touch-screen devices (e.g., "iPads") in an effort to help students understand mathematics concepts. However, students experience these apps and their affordances in...
A Study Comparing Virtual Manipulatives with Other Instructional Treatments in Third-and Fourth-Grade Classrooms

Journal of Education Vol. 193, No. 2 (2013) pp. 25–39
The study reported here examined virtual manipulatives as an instructional treatment in 17 third- and fourth-grade classrooms. Students were randomly assigned to two treatment groups: texts and physical manipulatives, and virtual manipulatives....
The Complexity of the Affordance-Ability Relationship When Second-Grade Children Interact with Mathematics Virtual Manipulative Apps
Technology, Knowledge and Learning Vol. 21, No. 3 (2016) pp. 341–360
The purpose of this study was to explore relationships between app affordances and user abilities in second graders' interactions with mathematics virtual manipulative touchscreen tablet apps. The research questions focused on varying manifestations ...
The Brain’s Response to Digital Math Apps: A Pilot Study Examining Children’s Cortical Responses During Touch-Screen Interactions
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching Vol. 37, No. 1 (January 2018) pp. 69–86
Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is an easy to use neuroimaging technique that is portable and maintains a liberal tolerance to movement. As such, fNIRS represents an ideal tool to observe children’s neural activity as they engage in...
