This article details an experiment in which a broad and diverse range of information about schools was assembled and presented to stakeholders in a small urban district. Using a modified deliberative polling experience, authors assessed how participants responded to a new, more comprehensive set of school performance information. They found that when users of the new data system evaluated unfamiliar schools, they expressed not only more confidence in their own knowledge, but also in the quality of the schools.

This study examined whether the benefits of computer access observed in the general U.S. population were also applicable to children from immigrant families in the early 2000s. Our findings suggest that gaining computer access in the late 1990s/early 2000s was associated with greater mathematics achievement. The findings may help researchers understand potential influences of media that are currently popular.

This article defines and illustrates features of belongingness visible in videogame spaces, highlighting how doing–being–valuing combinations help to contextualize participation. Underscoring the dynamics of hierarchical participation in interest-driven practices, this article has implications for understanding how youth (re)configure their social practices to seek inclusion by using and honing specialist language and behavior.

by Philip Winne — 2017
This article argues that today’s gold standard for identifying what works, the randomized controlled trial, poorly serves each and any individual learner. Elements of this argument provide grounds for proposed remedies in cases where software can log extensive data about the operations that each learner applies to learning and about each bit of information to which a learner applies those operations.

by Susanne Lajoie & Eric Poitras — 2017
This article reviews recent advances in research by members of the Learning Environments Across Disciplines partnership on the design of adaptive technology-rich learning environments as cognitive, metacognitive, and affective tools. In particular, we examine the use of convergent methodologies and how the design guidelines of the learning environments are grounded in instructional theories and empirical evidence.

by Arthur Graesser, Carol Forsyth & Blair Lehman — 2017
Pedagogical agents are computerized talking heads or avatars that help students learn by performing actions and holding conversations with the students in natural language. This paper explores several designs of trialogues (two agents interacting with a human student) that have been productively implemented for particular students, subject matters, and depths of learning.

by Herbert Ginsburg — 2017
This article discusses how high quality software can both promote children’s math learning and also provide analytic tools for studying its development over time. Macrogenetic research on digital learning can contribute to the further development of effective math education software, shed light on children’s math learning, and also largely eliminate the need for high-stakes testing and traditional achievement tests.

by Jan Nespor & Rick Voithofer — 2016
This paper examines how a large virtual school grows and prospers in spite of receiving consistently “failing” “grades” from the state. In answering, the article suggests that the school is not just a school and must be understood instead as part of a fundamental transformation in the nature of educational institutions.

by Jody Piro & Gina Anderson — 2016

This study examines the relationship between applied STEM coursetaking (i.e., ‘scientific research & engineering’ and ‘information technology’) in high school and standardized math achievement. Using longitudinal data from a nationally-representative cohort of high school students, this study tests the effect of enrolling in applied STEM courses conditional on pipeline placement in traditional academic math courses, with the former emphasizing the application of concepts taught in the latter to specific occupational settings. Fixed effects regression analyses reveal that applied STEM courses have a statistically significant, but substantively small positive effect on math test scores. Students who fall lower on the math ability pipeline (i.e., who take only below average math courses like basic math and pre-Algebra) benefit much more from applied STEM courses than do students who take more advanced courses.

by David Passig & Timor Schwartz — 2014
This study used Virtual Reality (VR) technology to simulate conceptual and perceptual analogies and examined their impact on the analogical thinking of kindergarten children enrolled in public education. It compared the effectiveness of immersive 3D VR to better enhance their ability to solve both kinds of analogies with the effectiveness of picture cards and found VR to be more effective.

The chapter examines John Dewey’s concepts of society and the public in the context of digital technology and its potential to transform society and the moral ethos of the public school. I argue that Dewey’s theory of society and the public, though articulated for an industrial age, are, like his moral vision of social democracy and public education, still of perennial importance as a ethical lens to frame and critique the emerging network society and publics.

by Barbara Means, Yukie Toyama, Robert Murphy & Marianne Baki — 2013
This meta-analysis of the online learning literature includes 50 independent effects from controlled studies that contrasted either purely online or a blend of online and face-to-face instruction with a condition in which all instruction was conducted face-to-face. The meta-analysis found that on average, learners experiencing blends of online and face-to-face instruction learned modestly more than those whose instruction was entirely face-to-face.
