Active learning is increasingly of interest within Higher Education. The use of technology provides, in theory, the opportunity for more effective active learning, but in practice the majority of learning technology usage is still for “traditional” approaches. Conventional staff training is failing to address this. The authors’ university has provi...
Article
Full-text available
The primary purpose of this phenomenographic qualitative study is to identify a group of second-year undergraduate architecture students’ conceptions of learning technology use. The secondary purpose is to examine students’ learning experiences, perceptions, and feelings of technology use in an education course. Data were collected over a week by i...
Article
Full-text available
The objectives of this study were threefold: to understand students’ perceptions of activities in a blended learning environment; to determine their preferred learning activities in this context, paralleling the four stages of Kolb’s learning cycle; and to determine the effectiveness of the blended learning used, based on scores achieved in an e-bu...
Article
Full-text available
Examined in this study is the question of whether students in STEM courses perform better and have more positive perceptions than students in non-STEM courses, when both are offered in the blended format. As part of a blended learning initiative, 6 STEM and 8 non-STEM university courses were redesigned using the blended format. Students (n = 318) w...

Full-text available
Feedback plays a central role in learning. Crucial to this is the nature and timing of the feedback. This experimental study explores the efficacy of immediate computer‐mediated feedback within a virtual reality environment designed to facilitate the development of pre‐university students' presentation skills. Two conditions were established to ass...
Article
Full-text available
The transition from paper-based tests to corresponding computer-administered tests allows for the incorporation of improved interfaces that support response making. The main research question is whether innovative interfaces affect test response time and/or response accuracy. This study compared performance on banked cloze tests using a conventiona...
Article
Recognizing its importance, most countries have prioritized creative thinking as a critical ability that students need to develop before they enter the workforce. Thailand is no exception. For teachers to create learning environments that foster students’ creativity, teachers need a research-based understanding of creativity. Eighty-nine Thai in-se...
Article
There are several models of inquiry-based learning, some of which may be practiced in experimental classroom teaching, and some of which may be used in online teaching. This study proposes the “prediction-observation-quiz-explanation” (POQE) model to design a green energy generation learning program (i.e., how solar, wind, and water can produce ene...
Article
This paper reports on research that aimed (1) to plan a STEM class for Multimedia Applications for Presentations, a subject for vocational students in the Business and Computing Program of Chetupon Vocational School; (2) to compare students' achievements within the STEM class with those of a traditional class, and (3) to study the satisfaction of s...
Article
Approaches to teaching and learning are increasingly influenced by the introduction of new technologies and innovative use of space. Recognising the need to keep up to date many institutions has created technology-rich, flexible spaces. Studies so far have concentrated on how students use such facilities; however, their availability also strongly i...
Article
Higher education institutions are increasingly exploring how they can use emerging technologies to develop and enhance the learning experiences offered to students. These activities have mainly focused on developing student‐centred facilities. The University of Warwick has taken the next step by developing a space (the Teaching Grid) specifically d...
Article
The interdisciplinary nature of Computer Science Education as a field of study is a complicating factor when authors are choosing appropriate journals and conferences for publishing research results. This paper reports a survey of 42 such publications in order to identify the types of paper frequently accepted for publication in each. We review exi...
Article
Abstract Active learning is considered by many academics as an important and effective learning strategy. Assessment is integrated in learning as a tool for learning, but traditional assessment methods often encourage surface learning (passive learning) rather than deep learning (active learning). Peer assessment is a method of motivating students,...
Conference Paper
Mobile learning is widely regarded as the next generation of learning technologies, and refers to the use of mobile devices in education to enhance learning activities. The increasing use of mobile devices has encouraged research into the capabilities of mobile learning systems. Many questions arise about mobile learning, such as whether mobile lea...
Conference Paper
Peer assessment is a technique that has been successfully employed in a variety of academic disciplines, and which is considered to be effective in developing student's higher cognitive skills. In this paper, we consider the results of applying novel web-based technology to the delivery of peer assessment in the context of an undergraduate computer...
Conference Paper
Peer assessment is a technique that has been successfully employed in a variety of academic disciplines, and it is considered as effective in developing students' higher cognitive skills. This paper describes the potential for web-based peer assessment with an anonymous communication tool, and reports the results of applying a novel web-based techn...
Conference Paper
This paper discusses the potential for web-based peer assessment, based on the numerous possibilities for different communication patterns that the technology affords. It describes and compares two novel web-based peer assessment systems for computer programming courses, and discusses their deployment on large programming modules. The results indic...
Conference Paper
Peer assessment is a method of motivating students in learning computer programming, involving student's marking and providing feedback on other student's work. We report on the design and implementation of a novel Web-based peer assessment system, and discuss its deployment on a large programming module. The results indicate that this peer assessm...

Article
Assessment plays a crucial role in improving learning outcomes, and e-assessment can be used to stimulate higher order thinking skills and provide personalized feedback automatically. In this paper, we review the uses of e-assessment within the domain of Computer Science Education, and identify the factors which are evidenced as contributing to the...
Article
Active learning is considered by many academics as an im-portant and effective learning strategy. Students can improve the quality of their work by developing their higher cognitive skills through reflection on their own ideas and practice of analytic and evaluative skills. Peer as-sessment is one of the successful approaches which can be used to e...
