abstraCt As part of a larger project for the NASA-sponsored Classroom of the Future ™ to benchmark the effectiveness of educational technologies, researchers used multiple data sources to develop a list of exemplars and delineate common design features. The exemplars included promising educational technologies, tools, Web sites, resources, software, and(More)
abstraCt Design principles are universal and may be translated onto the newest trends and emergent technologies. In this research study we combined the perspectives provided by two sources to create a set of recommended design principles for technology-enhanced learning environments. One source was the How People Learn framework (Bransford, Brown, &(More)
abstraCt Our research team evaluated 18 months of National Science Foundation (NSF) program announcements and awarded programs to discern the amount and type of emphasis placed upon educational technologies. NSF issued 65 solicitations for proposals, with 53.8% calling for educational technology components. A sampling of 366 of the 1,180 funded projects(More)
It is often said that students who perform well in school are those that understand the rules of the game. In other words, students need to understand not only the content related to an activity, but also the teacher expectations for how to participate in that activity and how the activity is typically structured (Doyle, 1979; Mehan, 1980). Lemke (1990)(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect that various intelligences (or abilities, as defined by Sternberg, 1985) have on success in using a multimedia software program for learning science inquiry skills. Over a three-week period, students used Astronomy Village®: Investigating the Universe as a resource to conduct research investigations(More)
CONCLUSIONS In the previous articles, we reported on the results of a multifaceted research study on how to benchmark and use emerging educational technologies. Our approach blended classic research methods with those used in market research studies. We gathered data and expertise from a variety of sources, including academic research articles, industry(More)
