Document analyses of student use of a blogging-mapping tool to explore evidence of deep and reflective learning by Ying Wang( file )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Theories about reflective thinking and deep-surface learning abound. In order to arrive at the definition for "reflective thinking toward deep learning," this study establishes that reflective thinking toward deep learning refers to a learner's purposeful and conscious activity of manipulating ideas toward meaningful learning and knowledge integration. The popular kinds of weblog tool usually do not provide any proper prompts for students to make "connections between the parts of an experience"--an integral part of a reflective activity. A newly designed blogging-mapping tool could scaffold the whole learning process: besides writing blogs on the website, a student could attach up to five keywords to each blog, and link the keywords on the map. The major research question was: What kinds of thinking appeared from the blogs, and the concept maps? Nine students in a graduate-level instructional design course participated in the study. They wrote one blog each week for an average of 10 weeks. Most of them attached three to five keywords to each blog. They also revised their concept maps one to four times during the semester. Students' blogs were each analyzed with Automap--software producing mental maps of the blog texts, calculating Automap nodes of high centrality (most talked about nodes and most connected nodes). The researcher compared students-generated keywords against Automap nodes. Results of keywords analyses revealed that 2/3 of the students-attached keywords matched Automap nodes. This might indicate that keywords-attaching prompt could have made students' thinking explicit. The findings also uncovered a vast variety of differences between participant-selected keywords and Automap nodes and blog main topics. Relative to Automap nodes, some participant-selected keywords: (a) summarized some Automap nodes or the main ideas of the blogs; (b) were subsumed under some Automap nodes; (c) were irrelevant to the main topics. In addition, on some occasions, some participants failed to use keywords to represent the important ideas of their blogs. Each scenario suggested various levels of thinking and utilities of this feature of the tool. The variety in students' thinking ranged from the most effortless "randomly using suggested keywords" to relatively effortful "finding components/specifics of major concepts," and to more effortful "selecting afterthoughts" and "associating concepts to their application contexts." All versions of students' concept maps were analyzed for (a) the connected keyword; (b) the accuracy of the label; (c) how students revised the concept map over time; (d) the degree of students' knowledge integration. Resulted showed that (1) six of the nine participants connected most or all keywords they selected whereas three only connected some keywords. (2) The relationships among concepts reflected the points of view of students' blogs and the common knowledge of the field. Still, shallow and insensible connections existed across the participants. (3) Most of the students waited until the end of the semester before they started concept mapping. During the semester, they tended to limit the revised connections to keywords of a same blog. Among them, Joe was an particular example in that he modified his concept maps almost every week and all of his connections remained in "clusters" of same blog' keywords. (4) By the end of the semester, most of the students started to integrate knowledge around some of the core concepts of the field (E.G. "instructional design"). However, the level of knowledge integration seemed different. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest llc.

The evolution of critical thinking and use of scaffolding in a technology-mediated learning environment an exploratory study by Priya Sharma( file )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Recently, much attention has been focused on identifying and developing methods for supporting and facilitating critical thinking in students. Scaffolding is one method that has been used in a variety of settings, ranging from one-on-one tutoring to traditional classrooms for supporting very different learning goals. The effectiveness of scaffolding has led to increasing interest in developing and implementing technologymediated scaffolding for a variety of competencies, including scientific thinking and higher order thinking skills. This study focused on the influence of scaffolding on the evolution of critical thinking skills in a technology-mediated environment. The three main research questions addressed by the study sought to explore: changes in participant perceptions and use of scaffolding, the evolution of critical thinking in each participant over the course of a semester, and influences on the evolution of each participant's critical thinking. A qualitative design guided data collection and analysis. The study was conducted in the context of an online class on Instructional Design. All students in the class were provided with scaffolding for certain class tasks, and the scaffolding was gradually faded over the semester. Five graduate participants were purposefully selected from the class and interviewed repeatedly over the course of the semester. Data analysis occurred through constant comparison. Major findings indicated that participant use of scaffolding moved from externally directed to internally relevant assimilation, and the change in use resulted from an acknowledgement of individual needs and context. The evolution of critical thinking proceeded through three stages identified as mirroring, distortion, and reconstruction. Each stage was characterized by typical approaches to assimilation of knowledge on instructional design; each stage was also marked by a display of certain prototypical critical thinking skills by participants. Influences on the evolution of critical thinking included prior knowledge, reflection, feedback, project context, and perception of self as learner. Based on the study data and related research and theory, a framework is proposed for describing the coactive evolution of critical thinking and assimilation of scaffolding. Implications for research and practice are outlined
Theoretical study of helium-3 in aerogel by Priya Sharma( file )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Transport properties of 3He are modified by the limited mean free path available for scattering to 3He quasiparticles, confined in the aerogel. An exact solution to the transport equation for quasiparticles can be found, including the scattering from the aerogel. I discuss the normal-state transport derived from the exact solution to the Boltzmann equation and compare with experimental data available. Heat transport in the superfluid state is enhanced compared to pure superfluid 3He, at ultra-low temperatures due to gapless excitations that can transport heat. I discuss the heat transport of superfluid 3He in aerogel in detail, and derive theoretical expressions for the thermal conductivity
