Tablet PC Support of Students' Learning Styles
Shreya Kothaneth,Ashley Robinson,Catherine Amelink
Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics , 2012,
Abstract: In the context of rapid technology development, it comes as no surprise that technology continues to impact the educational domain, challenging traditional teaching and learning styles. This study focuses on how students with different learning styles use instructional technology, and in particular, the tablet PC, to enhance their learning experience. The VARK model was chosen as our theoretical framework as we analyzed responses of an online survey, both from a quantitative and qualitative standpoint. Results indicate that if used correctly, the tablet PC can be used across different learning styles to enrich the educational experience.

Abstract: The purpose of this study is to develop a reliable and a valid scale to determine the attitudes of the primary students towards tablet pc. The items of the scale were determined by scanning the relevant literature and taking the opinions of the experts. The first draft of the scale including 49 items as a result of content reliability was applied to 434 students chosen randomly from the 7thand 8thgrades of schools in the city, city centre and the villages of Giresun in March 2012. It was revealed that the scale was clustered on single factor which consisted of 31 items and the factor loading values were 0.470 and over. Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient was calculated to be 0.93 for the reliability of the scale.

Abstract: Mouth dissolving tablets are disintegrating and dissolve rapidly in the saliva without the need for water. Some tablets are designed to dissolve in saliva remarkably fast, within a few seconds, and are true fast-dissolving tablets. Others contain agents to enhance the rate of tablet disintegration in the oral cavity, and are more appropriately termed fast-disintegrating tablets, as they may take up to a minute to completely disintegrate. Oral delivery is currently the gold standard in the pharmaceutical industry where it is regarded as the safest, most convenient and most economical method of drug delivery having the highest patient compliance. Fast- or mouth dissolving tablets have been formulated for paediatric, geriatric, and bedridden patients and for active patients who are busy and travelling and may not have access to water.

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine accountability systems operating in youth volleyball training sessions and to understand how those systems vary according to the instructional tasks and the nature of the information provided by coaches. Additionally, the interactive effect of the players' age group on accountability systems and instructional tasks will be inspected. Twenty-eight youth volleyball coaches (for under 14s and under 18s) were observed, one training session each. Systematic observation strategies were used to describe and analyse task presentation and task structure during practice. Results convey that the accountability systems implemented by coaches were mainly implicit and governed by opportunity rather than explicit performance criteria imparted in task presentation. Remarks on the quality of performance only occurred during ongoing practice. More often than not coaches showed no reaction when athletes did not accomplish the tasks, failing to convey consequential expectancy-demand-monitoring messages. The instructional approach was predominantly composed of informing tasks, of technical nature and general information, which can reflect a technique and generalist coach profile. These results indicate the presence of weak and ambiguous accountability system, also corroborated by positive correlations of extending tasks with the category without exigency task presentation as well as with no reaction to unaccomplished tasks. There were no notorious differences in accountability behaviours between players' age group
The Effects of Handwritten Feedback on Paper and Tablet PC in Learning Japanese Writing
International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Learning (iJET) , 2007,
Abstract: This paper compares the effect of paper-basedhandwritten feedback (PBHF) and that of Tablet PC-basedhandwritten feedback (TBHF) in learning Japanese writing.The study contributes to the research on motivation,usability and presence when learners are given differentmedia-based handwritten error feedback. The resultsindicated that there was little difference in the effect of thetwo media on motivation and usability factors. However,PBHF showed a positive effect on presence factor thanTBHF. Also, there was little difference in proficiencyimprovement after the students reviewed different mediabased handwritten feedback. The results of this studysuggest that language teachers should not use ICT withtraditional strategies, but in an innovative way to improvetheir writing instruction and enhance learners’ writingproficiency.
Algoria: Tablet-PC Anwendung für den Informatikunterricht  [PDF]
Schweizer Raphael,Stamm Christoph,Walti Beat
IMVS Fokus Report , 2010,
Abstract: Algoria ist eine neuartige, stiftbasierte Tablet-PC Anwendung für den Informatikunterricht. Sie ist in der Lage im eng begrenzten Kontext der algorithmischen Datenstrukturen typische Skizzen von Arrays, Listen,B umen und Graphen direkt w hrend des Skizzierens zu erkennen, in entsprechende Datenstrukturen im Hauptspeicher abzubilden und Algorithmen darauf anzuwenden. Die von den Algorithmen erwirkten Anpassungen der Datenstrukturen werden in Form von automatisch generierten Animationen dargestellt. In diesem Artikel gehen wir haupts chlich auf den Aufbau der Software und auf die eingesetzte GUI-Technologie WPF ein. Zudem zeigen wir, wie mit WPF eine konsequente Trennung zwischen GUI-Design und -Verhalten erreicht werden kann.
The characteristics of struggling university readers and instructional approaches of academic reading in Malaysia
Latisha Asmaak Shafie,Surina Nayan
International Journal of Human Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Many university students are struggling readers when they have to read academic texts. Thus these students are not able to comprehend academic texts which hinder their success academically. These students are forced to sit for Reading for Academic Purposes in order to improve their academic reading skills. This paper is a reflection of the authors’ experiences teaching reading for academic purposes at a local higher learning institution in Malaysia. In order to improve struggling readers’ reading abilities, the authors examine the ways struggling readers transacted with their academic reading demands. This paper examines reading strategies and characteristics of struggling readers. It also suggests a reading instructional approach for struggling readers and their instructors.

Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2014.44028

Background: With the rapid aging of society, the number of patients with heart failure has also increased. Implantable devices for heart failure have become standardized. Remote monitoring using cardiac devices has grown in popularity for medical efficiency and the early detection of abnormalities. Our first aim was to develop a tablet-PC-based nursing intervention program for patients requiring remote monitoring of implantable cardiac devices. The second purpose was to evaluate the efficacy of the program by using mixed-methods research. Methods: The study consisted of two phases. In phase 1, we designed a tablet-PC-based nursing intervention program, on the basis of a literature review and qualitative data collected via semi-structured interviews. In phase 2, we conducted a randomized controlled trial that served as a preliminary investigation of the program. The outcome measures were readmission, unexpected visits to the clinic for heart problems, quality of life, self-care behavior, and self-efficacy. After the study, we interviewed each participant about his or her experiences with the program. Interviews were audio recorded, coded, and thematically analyzed. Results: The 33 patients with heart failure were randomized into two groups as follows: 17 patients in the telenursing group and 16 in the control group. During 6 months of follow-up, the readmission for heart failure occurred in 11% of the intervention group and 18% of the control group. There were no statistically significant differences between the groups at any outcome measures. Three themes were extracted via qualitative analysis: “getting a sense of safety,” “triggering a health behavior change,” and “feeling like a burden.” Conclusion: No improvements in rates of rehospitalization or unexpected clinic visits were seen in the quantitative study. However, signs of behavior modification were seen in the qualitative study. This program has the possibility of improving patient outcomes.
