This study explored the claim that different classroom layouts can affect teaching and learning, comparing students’ attitudes to their learning experiences, motivation, engagement and academic outcomes in each layout over a school year. A correlation was identified between enhanced student attitudes in an ILE and higher English, Humanities and Mathematics academic achievement.
A study of the use of recorded lecture videos (RLVs) in mathematics instruction in Australia and the UK found similar outcomes in both contexts: a reduction in live lecture attendance coupled with a dependence on RLVs was associated with an increase in surface approaches to learning.
This study tested the psychometric properties of a tablet-based app designed to measure early literacy skills, and were also compared with paper-based tests. Agreement between scores for the tablet and traditional tests was high indicating tablet tests provide valid and reliable measures of children’s early literacy skills.
