Journal Article
Martin, S., Naamani, C., & Vallance, M. (2015). A situation that we had never imagined: Post-Fukushima virtual collaborations for determining robot task metrics. International Journal of Learning Technology, 10(1), 30-49. https://doi.org/10.1504/IJLT.2015.069453

There is no consensus regarding a common set of metrics for robot task complexity in associated human-robot interactions. This paper is an attempt to address this issue by proposing a new metric so that the educational potential when using robots can...

Measuring flow experience in an immersive virtual environment for collaborative learning (2011)
Journal Article
van Schaik, P., Martin, S., & Vallance, M. (2012). Measuring flow experience in an immersive virtual environment for collaborative learning. Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 28(4), 350-365. doi:10.1111/j.1365-2729.2011.00455.x

In contexts other than immersive virtual environments, theoretical and empirical work has identified flow experience as a major factor in learning and human–computer interaction. Flow is defined as a ‘holistic sensation that people feel when they act... Read More about Measuring flow experience in an immersive virtual environment for collaborative learning.

Teachers using learning styles: torn between research and accountability? (2010)
Journal Article
Martin, S. (2010). Teachers using learning styles: torn between research and accountability?. Teaching and Teacher Education, 26(8), 1583-1591. doi:10.1016/j.tate.2010.06.009

The proliferation of instruments reporting learning/cognitive style with school pupils is of particular interest, because most research on them focuses on applications in higher education, training and the adult workplace, where criticisms of their i...

Predicting intercultural competence in educational settings: the validity, reliability and utility of two instruments (2010)
Journal Article
Martin, S. (2010). Predicting intercultural competence in educational settings: the validity, reliability and utility of two instruments. Evaluation and Research in Education, 23(4), 233-254. doi:10.1080/09500790.2010.495984

Determining individual potential for performance within multicultural environments is important in the increasingly globalised workplace. The Multicultural Personality Questionnaire (MPQ) and the Self-Efficacy Questionnaire (SEQ) aim to measure such...

The impact of synchronous inter-networked teacher training in Information and Communication Technology integration (2008)
Journal Article
Martin, S., & Vallance, M. (2008). The impact of synchronous inter-networked teacher training in Information and Communication Technology integration. Computers & education, 51(1), (34-53). doi:10.1016/j.compedu.2007.04.001. ISSN 0360-1315

This paper summarises the outcomes of research that recorded and interpreted change in pre-service teachers' pedagogical beliefs when immersed in unique synchronous networked collaboration. The pre-service teachers were involved in the design and imp... Read More about The impact of synchronous inter-networked teacher training in Information and Communication Technology integration.
