In Experiment 1, 131 students were… Read More Virtual reality and science learning: Two experiments (Best Evidence in Brief)
This is an interesting new study by Dr. Julia Brailovskaia and her team, although some limitations are obvious. The researchers compared 3 groups to know how much less smartphone use per day is good for us. They compared: the effect of complete smartphone abstinence versus a reduction in time spent daily looking at the screen… Read More How much less smartphone use per day is good for us.

Christian Bokhove shared this meta-meta-analysis on Twitter during the past week, and while most of the insights have been known for a while, it’s handy to have this overview by Noetel et al. We found that interventions that leveraged our two channels of information processing (visual and auditory) improved learning (e.g., captioning second-language video; modality… Read More A meta-meta-analysis on multimedia learning
