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
Learning to work and working to learn in 2025
This Paper presents the Learnovation vision for 2025 within and around the world of work and combining features of formal, non-formal and informal learning, i.e.: Inter-organisational learning, e-Learning at the workplace and Professional learning networks. Such territories can be represented graphically according to their position in a continuum ranging from individual initiative to learn to coordinated organisational initiatives. This continuum reflects a great differentiation in e-learnin
