This study aimed to establish a baseline understanding of how SPU undergraduate students compare to other small, private, liberal arts institutions in regard to technology usage in the classroom. The broader purpose of this study was to add to the ...
The Effects Of Student Learning When Subtitles Are Added To Videos, 2019 Utah State University
The Effects Of Student Learning When Subtitles Are Added To Videos, George T. Taylor
All Graduate Plan B and other Reports
This project investigated whether adding subtitles to educational videos increases learning among middle school students. A convenience sample (N=387) of Technology and Engineering middle school students were separated into two groups during the third term of both the 2018 and 2019 school years, where one group of students viewed videos with subtitles and the other group viewed the identical videos without subtitles. After viewing the videos, students immediately took a multiple-choice test. The test scores were used to analyze the variance between the two different groups. The results reveal that students who viewed videos with subtitles had slightly lower ...

Understanding Sub-Saharan African Learners Informal Learning Using Mobile Devices: A Case Of Tanzania, 2019 University of Cape Town
Understanding Sub-Saharan African Learners Informal Learning Using Mobile Devices: A Case Of Tanzania, Laban Bagui, Samwel Dick Mwapwele
The African Journal of Information Systems
In this era of pervasive computing and the Internet, learners everywhere connect and reconnect to knowledge away from classrooms, via mobile devices and their Mobile Instant Messaging platforms (MIMs). Still, many sub-Saharan African educators continue to confine these platforms to recreational activities. There is lack therefore of knowledge about how learners from sub-Saharan Africa perform such informal and experiential learning. This paper presents a case study of Tanzanian learners learning in informal settings using their mobile devices and MIMs. It deploys the rhizomatic learning theory with the aim of understanding how such learning occurs. Findings suggest that learners use mobile ...
How Ideology And Pedagogy Impact Technology Adoption In The Classroom, A Causal-Comparative Study, 2019 University of New England
How Ideology And Pedagogy Impact Technology Adoption In The Classroom, A Causal-Comparative Study, Christopher J. Bernard
All Theses And Dissertations
As the world changes from an industrial driven society to one more focused on services and knowledge, the drive for change within higher education is mounting from both students and employers. With the availability of the vast majority of the world’s knowledge available to an ever-increasing populace via the Internet, students and employers alike are no longer satisfied with the three r’s – reading, writing, and arithmetic. Instead, employers are expecting graduates to be knowledgeable of the three C’s – collaboration, communication, and creative problem solving to negotiate a progressively complex global market.
Through advances in cognitive science, we ...

Addressing Diversity In Call Evaluation Through Arguments And Theory-Of-Action, 2019 Iowa State University
Addressing Diversity In Call Evaluation Through Arguments And Theory-Of-Action, Jim R. Ranalli
THE DIVERSE AND EVER-CHANGING list of technologies encompassed by computer-assisted language learning (CALL) presents evaluators with a challenging moving target. At a time when CALL can include everything from school-based telecollaborative projects to Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs), to smartphone- and tablet-based apps, previous approaches to evaluation reveal their inadequacies. The checklists that once predominated (see Susser 2001) assumed the focus of evaluation to be tutorial software known as “courseware,” which now constitutes a much-diminished part of the CALL landscape. Methodological frameworks like the one proposed by Hubbard (2006) assume the role of an instructor and a course in which ...
Innovative Remote Smart Home For Immersive Engagement, 2019 Northern Illinois University
Innovative Remote Smart Home For Immersive Engagement, Kevin B. Martin, Abul Azad, Mohammed Adnan Shareef, Mrinal Roy
ASEE IL-IN Section Conference
An openly accessible, remotely operated smart home will be demonstrated as a tool for students to learn about residential energy usage and environmental impacts. Specifically, the demonstration unit provides classrooms an engaging experience that teaches students about energy efficiency technologies and how their behavior will have an impact on energy usage and the environment. It is expected that as students become aware of and understand how various energy efficiency technologies work barriers to their adoption will be lowered. The use of a web accessible, remote laboratory dramatically reduces lab setup time and equipment cost/space requirements for educators. Special attention ...

This paper highlights the importance of understanding some key factors, such as winds effects, trajectory and vehicle parameters variations in order to streamline the space vehicle operations and enhance science in the upper mesosphere at about 85 km. Understanding these effects is crucial to refine current space operations and establish more robust procedures. These procedures will involve training new space operators to conduct and coordinate space operations in class E above FL600 airspace within the Air Traffic Organization (ATO).
Space vehicles such as Space Ship Two can spend up to 6 minutes in class E airspace above FL600 after launch ...
Multimodal Adventures In Teaching: Individualized Learning, Relationship-Building, And Nurturing A Sense Of Belonging Through Fsd’S Student Life And Writing Centre Videos, Jenna L. Goddard 8197389, Alicia Ashcroft
Teaching Practices Colloquium
The results of the recent Canadian University Survey Consortium (CUSC) survey indicate that, compared to equivalent institutions, TRU students lack a feeling of connection to the campus; thus, growing and nurturing a sense of belonging within our increasingly diverse student body is vital. How does one create or facilitate connection or belonging to places and spaces of learning? Teaching and learning do not always take place in the traditional way within a classroom; in fact, sometimes the best “learning” takes place in unique and unanticipated ways. TRU’s Writer & Storyteller Alicia Ashcroft uses Faculty of Student Development’s Student Life ...

Chinese Language Teaching Methodology and Technology
Technology has been a staple in the language classroom for more than fifty years. From audio cassettes, to video tapes, to multimedia CD-ROMs, to static and interactive web technologies, language teachers have taken the time to learn these tools and integrate them into the classroom experience. Each new technology, each new app, creates an opportunity to alter the experience of teaching and learning—often supporting increased authentic interactions with the Chinese language. This potential however can go unrealized when the ways the technologies are used align with more traditional grammar and vocabulary-focused teaching methodologies and promote efficiency over communication. In ...
Technology Integration Experiences And Perceptions Of Southeastern Secondary Teachers, 2019 Concordia University - Portland
Technology Integration Experiences And Perceptions Of Southeastern Secondary Teachers, Candace M. Pattman
This research examined secondary southeastern teachers’ experiences and perceptions of technology integration in the classroom. Two research questions guided this study: What are the experiences of South Carolina secondary high school teachers in technology-equipped classrooms? How do secondary high school teachers in southeastern schools perceive the process of integrating technology in their daily lessons? The study was conducted using the conceptual framework of Bruner (1961), Dewey (1910), Piaget (1970), and Vygotsky (1978). Constructivism suggests that individuals construct their knowledge and meaning through their experiences. Eight purposefully selected secondary teachers who used technology integration in their classrooms more than once participated ...
