Adaptive and context-aware scenarios for technology-enhanced learning system based on a didactical t
Among the main issues of future technology-enhanced learning systems, we can mention the following ones: the ability to reuse learning resources (learning objects, tools and services) from large repositories, to take into account the context and to allow dynamic adaptation to different learners based on substantial advances in pedagogical theories and knowledge models. In our framework, the goal of scenarios is to describe the learning and tutoring activities to acquire some knowledge domain (fo

Comprehensive Object-Oriented Learning: The Learner's Perspective
The object-oriented paradigm is increasingly being integrated in computer science education as well as in industry. There is a high demand for understanding the learner’s actions, strategies and thoughts while solving object-oriented problems. Little is known about these processes. Aimed at both teachers and researchers involved in teaching object-oriented technologies, this book reports findings from four case studies, two design experiments and three controlled experiments, with a total of 1

Calculators, graphs, gestures and the production of meaning
In this paper we report an analysis of a teaching sequence in which Grade 11 students were asked to produce some graphs corresponding to the relationship between time and distance of a cylinder moving up and down an inclined plane. The students were also asked to carry out the experience using a TI 83+ graphic calculator equipped with a sensor, and to discuss and explain the differences between their own graphs and the ones obtained with the calculator. We analyze the students' processes of mea

La natura della mediazione offerta dai sistemi basati su micromondi all’apprendimento della matema
In questo articolo prenderemo in esame il sistema ARI-LAB che abbiamo realizzato per sostenere gli alunni nello sviluppo di capacità nel problem solving aritmetico e cercheremo di descrivere alcune caratteristiche che questo software rende disponibile con il fine di valutarne le potenzialità sul terreno didattico. Nel fare ciò assumeremo due riferimenti: da una parte l'analisi della natura del sapere coinvolto nel problem solving aritmetico, descritta nella prima parte di questo lavoro, dall'

Lo sviluppo del pensiero strategico nella scuola di base: riflessionisull'uso delle TIC
In recent years the development of skills which are not strictly associated with technical abilities or specific subject contents has become a central focus of education and the debate on how to define and promote what is usually indicated as “core” skills or “key” competencies is involving national educational Institutions and systems, especially in OECD countries. Among such skills a crucial role is assigned to strategic and reasoning abilities. While a general agreement on the import

Costruire e gestire ambienti di apprendimento che integrino strumenti tecnologici: analisi di un cas
The paper discusses the results of a research project based on the field testing of a course aimed at developing arithmetic problem solving skills in primary school pupils. The course was designed to incorporate e-learning techniques, including the use of ARI@ITALES authoring tools. These tools allowed the integration in the course of constructivist activities based on interaction with a set of different microworlds. The aims of the project were twofold: to analyse how the adopted approach and t

While Loops
This learning object seeks to engage the learner through attractive use of visualisation. As the subject is 'repetition' this is illustrated by using repeated actions to move an object across a screen. Redundancy is built in to help weaker students, but this may be bypassed. 'Scaffolding' is used near the end of the object to enable the learner to engage in building the programming construct in a safe supportive environment. This takes the form of building the code by selecting from code fragmen

Arrays in Java (Arrays)
Abstraction is a significant problem in learning to program. The learner has to relate the surface code to the operations in the memory of the computer. Visualisation of an ?array? is used here to help learners to form a mental concept that enables them to make sense of the surface code. A play-like drag and drop 'exercise' is used near the end to get the learner to actively test their understanding.
