Journal of Interactive Learning Research, v17 n2 p101-119 2006
This research aims to devise a set of computer-based tools to meet the diverse needs of learners for comprehending a science learning unit, namely work. A model of computer-based tools on the learning unit for developing procedural knowledge for solving work problems was developed together with a set of teacher customization and collaboration tools. The main components, developed and implemented in an integrated manner for both students and teachers, are Student Activity Environment, Curriculum Authoring Center, Global Activity Center, and Teacher Collaboration Tools. The framework of supporting students through teachers' collaborative course authoring, considering the different backgrounds of the students and preferred teaching/learning style of teachers/students, was evaluated with students and teachers using two different task regimes. The evaluation studies presented encouraging and promising results. (Contains 2 tables and 4 figures.)
