The effect of metacognitive strategies on subsequent participation in the middle school science clas

Research has shown that metacognitive strategies allow students to link concepts together, resulting in deeper understanding of science concepts. This promotes more in-depth questioning and understanding. In this r

Digital Visualization in the Teaching of Cognitive Visualization
Professional design offices claim that our graduates have difficulties with their free-hand perspective drawing skills. This fact, which has become obvious over the last 5 years, is parallel to a clear tendency towards the use of 3-dimensional digital imagery in the projects of our students.

At a more fundamental level, t
