Programming as mathematical narrative
This paper describes a narrative-oriented approach to the design and analysis of a computational system and a set of activities for mathematical learning. Our central contention is that programming can offer a key to resolving the tension between the different representational structures of narrative and mathematical formalism. In the course of describing our approach, we make a distinction between the epistemic-cognitive elements of narrative and the social, cultural and affective elements. We
Two Years Of Use Of The Aplusix System
APLUSIX is a learning environment for helping students to learn algebra. This system is designed and developed in the IMAG-Leibniz laboratory. Its basic training mode consists of letting the students perform their owns calculations, thanks to a two-dimensions editor of algebraic expressions, providing feedback on the correctness of the calculations and on the end of the resolution. APLUSIX has now been used for two years at school, in different contexts. One use was made by four teachers during
Avaliação e evolução de um ambiente de suporte à aprendizagem de programação
O ensino da programação através dos métodos tradicionais, onde a leccionação de conceitos dinâmicos é realizada utilizando principalmente materiais de índole estática, não se tem revelado muito eficaz. Neste documento é apresentado um ambiente, o SICAS, que de forma dinâmica, interactiva e apelativa permite a construção e simulação de algoritmos. De forma a medir a eficácia do ambiente desenvolvido e a procurar formas de o melhorar foram realizadas experiências. As sugestões

Off-Task Behavior in the Cognitive Tutor Classroom: When Students "Game The System".
We investigate the prevalence and learning impact of different types of off-task behavior in classrooms where students are using intelligent tutoring software. We find that within the classrooms studied, no other type of off-task behavior is associated nearly so strongly with reduced learning as "gaming the system": behavior aimed at obtaining correct answers and advancing within the tutoring curriculum by systematically taking advantage of regularities in the software's feedback and help. A stu

Shape Grammars for Innovative Hybrid Typological Design
This paper describes a new methodology of deriving innovative hybrid designs using shape grammars of heterogeneous designs. The method is detailed within three phases of shape grammars: analysis, synthesis and evaluation. In the analysis phase, the research suggests that original rules of each design component are grouped in subclass rule sets to facilitate rule choices. Additionally, adding new hybrid rules to original rules expands the options available to the grammar user. In the synthesis ph
Evaluation of the Boscombe West & Springbourne Healthy Living Centre in Bournemouth,Sept 2005-Oct 20
The aim of this report is to summarise the Evaluation of a Healthy Living Centre. It explores and discusses the outcomes from the evaluation as well as the evaluation development from conception through to implementation. The report will also outline the processes through which the relevant evaluation theory emerged and identify the core lessons learnt as experienced by the external evaluators from Bournemouth University. The scope of this report does not extend to the on going findings of the
