GeoGebra Materials for LMS Moodle Focused Monge on Projection
Ferdiánová, Vera
Electronic Journal of e-Learning, v15 n3 p259-268 2017
"The use of e-learning and modern technologies is an integral part of teaching descriptive geometry" (Rankowski and Minaruth, 1979). Teachers often create Flash animations, websites and other interactive materials for their students using special tools and software; e.g. Cabri, GeoGebra or Construct 3D (García et al, 2007). There is an option of installing GeoGebra plugin within the frame of LMS Moodle, which results in having two important parts of self-study in one place. Thus, it might be a solid background for creation of integrated materials, which should support the development of spatial imagination. However, "this is the ability most students lack, which results in having problems with understanding simple tasks in descriptive geometry" (Gittler and Judith, 1998), which also leads to the fact, that Monge projection is not a favourite topic for them. This article continues the paper (Ferdiánová and Poruba, 2016), in which paper models of basic tasks in Monge projection, designed as supportive material for teaching geometry, were presented. The aim of this paper is to introduce interactive materials for Monge projection, which are implemented into LMS Moodle, as well as show results of pilot research of influence of using these materials on students. Students have geometric tasks, anaglyph models and templates for creation of paper models, which were used for better visualisation of geometric relationships in space, at disposal. Outcomes of pilot research questionnaires and tests are processed by basic statistical methods, e.g. Wilcox test. Outcomes of pilot testing influence further changes of usage interactive materials and LMS Moodle in self-study process.
