Ten Years of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning: A meta-analysis of CSCL in STEM education during 2005-2014

Publication date: Available online 14 June 2019Source: Educational Research ReviewAuthor(s): Heisawn Jeong, Cindy E. Hmelo-Silver, Kihyun JoAbstractThe goal of this paper is to report on a meta-analysis about the effects of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) in STEM education. The analysis is based on 316 outcomes from 143 studies that examined the effects of CSCL published between 2005 and 2014. Our analysis showed that the overall effect size of STEM CSCL was .51, a moderate but notable effect size in educational research. The effect was greatest on the process outcomes, followed by knowledge outcomes, and affective outcomes. The sizes of the effects were moderated by types of technology and pedagogies, levels of learners, and learning domains. Moderators further interacted so that effects of technology and pedagogy varied depending on the modes of collaboration, learner levels, and domains of learning. The current study demonstrates the overall advantage of CSCL in STEM education and highlights a need to develop a need to understand how these variables may interact to contribute to CSCL effectiveness.

Conclusions: Although persons with AD are often collectively considered as expensive patient group, there is large temporal and inter-individual variation in belonging to the highest decile of hospitalization and/or medication costs. It would be important to assess whether hospitalization rate could be decreased by, e.g., comprehensive outpatient care with more efficient management of comorbidities. In addition, other interventions that could decrease hospitalization rate in persons with dementia should be studied further in this context. Key messages Persons with AD had large individual fluctuation in hospital care costs ...

Conclusion and Significance: Understanding the participants' lived experiences raised consciousness of the injustices that exist before and during rehabilitation which uncovered pointers to improve local substance addiction rehabilitation programs: use of occupation-based social participation interventions, limitation of occupational therapy services due to lack of human resources reinforcing interprofessional collaboration, a participatory approach is essential in discussing and addressing injustices, and deliberate use of political activities of daily living.

ConclusionDespite the use of AEDs in the majority of patients, only one-third were seizure-free. Other challenges included polypharmacy, the use of valproate in women, and variable adherence. This points to a need for closer follow-up in patients with JME.Graphical abstract
