Private Universe Project in Mathematics: Workshop 3. Inventing Notations
We learn how to foster and appreciate students notations for their richness and creativity. We also look at some of the possibilities that early work in creating notation systems might open up for students as they move on toward algebra.,15 min. Pizzas in the Classroom In Englewood, New Jersey, Blanche Young, who attended the summer workshop, tries out one of the problems with her fourth-grade students.

Literature Review in Informal Learning with Technology Outside School
When we think about learning, we often tend to think about schools, universities, colleges. If we go a little further and think about learning outside school, we might begin to consider museums, galleries and science centres. What we often tend to overlook, however, is the sort of learning that goes on as part of our normal day-to-day activities when we don't even think we are learning. Today, however, anyone who has an interest in how children learn with digital technologies needs to look beyon
Understanding the structure of the set of rational numbers: a conceptual change approach.
In the present article, we argue that the conceptual change approach to learning can apply in the case of mathematics, taking into consideration the particular nature of mathematical knowledge and the neurobiological bases of mathematical cognition. In the empirical study that is reported in this article, we investigated ninth graders' understanding of algebraic and structural properties of rational numbers, from a conceptual change perspective. We make the point that understanding rational numb
CAPITAL - Curriculum and Pedagogy in Technology Assisted Learning
The aim of this report is to synthesise the Capital work over the last two years, identifying the most promising strands for development in educational technology as well as the circumstances that need to be created to take up these opportunities. Importantly, this report structures the work in order to communicate findings as clearly as possible for a wide audience of researchers, policy makers and education leaders.,Year 3 final report: Shaping Contexts to realise the potential of technologies
Technology and Education: Putting it in context
We often hear competing media and research claims about the educational value of new technologies, but often it is not clear how, or indeed if, these technologies are supporting learning. And, importantly, there is often little attention to the challenges of trying to introduce these technologies successfully into an educational context. This report aims to address these issues through a short summary of some of the work carried out by the Capital Project over the last two years the programme
A Design Approach to Research in Technology Enhanced Mathematics Education
This thesis explores the prospect of a design science of technology enhanced mathematics education (TEME), on three levels: epistemological, methodological and pedagogical. Its primary domain is the identification of scientific tools for design research in TEME. The outputs of this enquiry are evaluated by a demonstrator study in the domain of secondary school mathematics. A review of existing literature establishes a need for a design perspective in TEME research, but at the same time suggests
Etude de connaissances d'élèves de seconde sur les mutations génétiques.
L'ADN est une notion qui pose problème aux élèves de lycée aussi nous nous proposons d'identifier et de classer les conceptions des élèves sur ce sujet. Pour cette analyse, nous avons utilisé la notion de mutation, qui permet d'étudier à la fois, comme nous le souhaitions, la structure et la fonction de l'ADN. Après avoir effectué une étude bibliographique et une analyse du savoir, nous avons cherché à vérifier l'existence de six niveaux biologiques dans les productions des élèv

Le projet pr,TELEOS : Technology enhanced Learning in orthopaedic surgery
Conception of a simulator for a TEL system in orthopaedic surgery.
Within a research project whose aim is to promote the learning of percutaneous operation in orthopedic surgery, we investigate some representation models of empirical, deductive, and perceptivo-gestural knowledge. From these models, we design an TEL system (Tecnological Enhaced Learning) This project belongs to a multidisciplinary field including computer, orthopedic surgery, medical imaging, didactic and cognitive sciences. The article presents the design principles of TEL with a particular int
Take into account knowledge constraints for design of TEL environments in
In this paper we present an approach, based on exploiting and modeling empirical knowledge, for design an adaptive intelligent tutoring system in medical education. We present our learning knowledge design constraints and their related computer representations. We conclude with the possibilities of our approach and their perspectives.
Pedagogical innovation in new learning communities
This report is part of the research project on Pedagogical Innovations in New ICT-facilitated Learning Communities (LearnCom), under an Administrative Arrangement between IPTS (IS Unit) and DG Education and Culture. The aim of this study is to review and assess the new social and pedagogical approaches to learning that are emerging in new ICT-facilitated collaborative learning settings. In addition to formal education, such communities are increasingly emerging in informal and non-formal lifelo
