"It's Just Like Learning, Only Fun"--A Teacher's Perspective of Empirically Validating Effectiveness of a Math App
Grimes, Ka Rene
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA) (11th, Porto, Portugal, Oct 25-27, 2014)
The purpose of this paper is to provide a narrative of work in progress to validate a math app designed for number sense. To date I have conducted classroom research and pilot studies across ten early childhood classrooms in two schools and will begin an empirical study at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year. Through my work I believe the fields of neuroscience, education, and digital science offer robust and unique ways to address at least two barriers I encountered: identifying instructional computer adaptive software containing embedded assessments and designed explicitly with cognitive models of learning; and developing ongoing collaborative research networks to validate this software. In an attempt to inform the work of those working in the fields of digital science, cognitive science and education, my reflection includes the background, content, context and observations of my studies to date, as well as insights and emerging hypotheses for consideration.
