Previous: Experiments in Premature Adoption
Is it feasible for middle school students to use component-oriented
software for the construction of
their own learning resouces?
In order to explore
the potential of a new technology, a program of
guided collaboration between students at Bowen Island
near Vancouver Canada and researchers at Simon Fraser University
was established. Bridging methodologies were developed to overcome
the lack of maturity in the software in order to predict its feasibility
as an in-class resource for teaching mathematics.
