  • Analysis of lexical quality and its relation to writing quality for 4th grade, primary school students in Chile 

    Gómez Vera, Gabriela; Sotomayor Echeñique, Carmen; Bedwell, Percy; Domínguez, Ana María; Jéldrez, Elvira (Springer, 2016)
    Few studies have addressed vocabulary quality in developing writing skill in Spanish. Even less addressed it within the Chilean educational system. The specific objective of this study was to characterize, using a comprehensive ...
  • Metaphors and development of mathematical thinking: as soon as possible! 

    Luci-Arriagada, Gina; Reyes, Pamela (Unic Matanzas, 2016)
    This work promotes the teaching of mathematics at an early age, classes and sessions designed to promote early learning math concepts, which have arisen from informal meetings with education professionals at all levels ...
  • Education for all and attrition/retention of new teachers: A trajectory study in Chile 

    Avalos Davidson, Beatrice; Valenzuela Barros, Juan Pablo (Pergamon-Elsevier, 2016)
    This article centres on teacher retention and its importance for achieving quality education for all. It analyses the state of early career teaching attrition and turnover in Chile over a ten-year period, and goes on more ...
  • Ways of making-sense: Local gamma synchronization reveals differences between semantic processing induced by music and language 

    Barraza, Paulo; Chavez, Mario; Rodríguez, Eugenio (Elsevier, 2016)
    Similar to linguistic stimuli, music can also prime the meaning of a subsequent word. However, it is so far unknown what is the brain dynamics underlying the semantic priming effect induced by music, and its relation to ...
  • Rúbricas y otras herramientas para desarrollar la escritura en el aula 

    Sotomayor Echeñique, Carmen; Avila, Natalia; Jéldrez, Elvira (Santillana, 2015)
    De manera de abordar los desafíos que implica el trabajo en escritura para los docentes es que el Centro de Investigación Avanzada en Educación (CIAE) y la Fundación Educacional Arauco desarrollaron este libro que presenta ...
  • Genericity and the interpretation of the copulas by spanish-speaking children 

    Holtheuer Beausire, Carolina; Miller, Karen (Univ Concepción, Fac. Humanidades Arte, 2015)
    In Spanish the copulas ser and estar correlate with generic and specific interpretations, respectively. Likewise, both adjective types (scalar vs. non-scalar) and animacy of the sentential subject have been found to impact ...
  • Gender Effects When Learning Manipulative Tasks From Instructional Animations and Static Presentations 

    Wong, Mona; Castro Alonso, Juan; Ayres, Paul; Paas, Fred (IEEE, 2015)
    Humans have an evolved embodied cognition that equips them to deal easily with the natural movements of object manipulations. Hence, learning a manipulative task is generally more effective when watching animations that ...
  • Complex brain network properties in late L2 learners and native speakers 

    Pérez, Alejandro; Gillon Dowens, Margaret; Molinaro, Nicola; Iturria Medina, Yasser; Barraza, Paulo; García Pentón, Lorna (Elsevier, 2015)
    Whether the neural mechanisms that underlie the processing of a second language in highly proficient late bilinguals (L2 late learners) are similar or not to those that underlie the processing of the first language (L1) ...
  • The role of reading engagement in improving national achievement: An analysis of Chile’s 2000–2009 PISA results 

    Valenzuela Barros, Juan; Gómez Vera, Gabriela; Sotomayor Echeñique, Carmen (Elsevier, 2015)
    Chilean students achieved the greatest improvements in reading scores among OECD countries according to 2000–2009 PISA results. The present study aimed to analyze both systemic and individual variables behind Chile’s ...
  • Oscillatory Brain Activity Reveals Linguistic Prints in the Quantity Code 

    Salillas, Elena; Barraza, Paulo (PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2015)
    Number representations change through education, although it is currently unclear whether and how language could impact the magnitude representation that we share with other species. The most prominent view is that language ...
  • Early narrative skills in Chilean preschool: Questions scaffold theproduction of coherent narratives 

    Silva, Macarena; Strasser, Katherine; Cain, Kate (Elsevier, 2014)
    This study examined whether or not question answering aided the construction of coherent narratives inpre-readers. Sixty Chilean preschoolers completed two tasks using a wordless picture-book: 30 childrenanswered questions ...
  • Long-distance neural synchrony correlates with processing strategies to compare fractions 

    Barraza, Paulo; Gómez, David M.; Oyarzún Ampuero, Felipe; Dartnell Roy, Pablo (Elsevier, 2014)
    Adults use different processing strategies to work with fractions. Depending on task requirements, theymay analyze the fraction components separately (componential processing strategy, CPS) or consider thefraction as a ...
  • Language universals at birth 

    Gómez, David Maximiliano; Berent, Iris; Benavides Varela, Silvia; Bion, Ricardo A. H.; Cattarossi, Luigi; Nespor, Marina; Mehler, Jacques (CrossMark, 2014)
    The evolution of human languages is driven both by primitive biases present in the human sensorimotor systems and by cultural transmission among speakers. However, whether the design of the language faculty is further ...
  • Teaching modeling skills using a massively multiplayer online mathematics game 

    Araya, Roberto; Jiménez Gajardo, Abelino Enrique; Bahamondez, Manuel; Calfucura, Patricio; Dartnell Roy, Pablo; Soto Andrade, Jorge (Springer Science+Business Media, 2014)
