Walkington, Candace; Wang, Min; Nathan, Mitchell J. – Grantee Submission, 2019
Collaborative gestures in the mathematics classroom occur when multiple learners coordinate their bodies in concert to accomplish mathematical goals. Collaborative gestures show how cognition becomes distributed across a system of dynamic agents, allowing for members of groups of students to act and gesture as one. We explore ways high school…

Sénécal, Anna-Marie; Mezzaluna, Vanessa; Cardoso, Walcir –, 2018
This study explored the effects of learner response systems (clickers) on the development of vocabulary knowledge in English (L2). Sixty-one Grade 8 learners divided in two groups participated in the experiment, which followed a pretest-posttest-delayed posttest research design. While the experimental group received a clicker-based treatment via…

Patahuddin, Sitti; Logan, Tracy; Ramful, Ajay – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
This paper attempted to make explicit some of the underlying characteristics of spatial visualisation using the concept of area of composite shapes. By engaging students with metric-free tasks, we identify the type of perceptual and visual/spatial manoeuvres that they deploy in such situations. Interview data collected from three students in Grade…

Muir, Tracey – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Senior secondary mathematics in Australia is generally characterised by a challenging prescribed curriculum, textbook usage, high homework expectations and externally imposed assessment tasks. An increasing number of senior secondary mathematics teachers are incorporating a flipped classroom approach into their teaching as a means of addressing…

Axelsen, Taryn; Galligan, Linda; Woolcott, Geoff – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Reflective practice in mathematical teaching improves teaching skills and confidence. This paper investigates affect-based critical moments as a reflective practice for pre-service teaching. An embedded case study is presented by one regional university as a discovery into the "reflective" phase of the Enhancement-Learning-Reflection…

Pei-Ling Tan, Jennifer; Koh, Elizabeth; Jonathan, Christin; Yang, Simon – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
The affordances of learning analytics (LA) tools and solutions are being increasingly harnessed for enhancing 21st century pedagogical and learning strategies and outcomes. However, use cases and empirical understandings of students' experiences with LA tools and environments aimed at fostering 21st century literacies, especially in the K-12…

Siemon, Dianne; Day, Lorraine; Stephens, Max; Horne, Marj; Callingham, Rosemary; Watson, Jane; Seah, Rebecca – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
The Australian Curriculum: Mathematics calls for the concurrent development of mathematical skills and mathematical reasoning. What are the big ideas of mathematical reasoning and is it possible to map their learning trajectories? Using rich assessment tasks designed for middle-years students of mathematics, this symposium reports on the…

Promsawan, Supatpong; Katwibun, Duanghathai – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
We proposed to study self-regulated learning (SRL) of 11th grade students in a PBL classroom (n = 36). The data were collected in November 2016 using Students' Self-Regulation Strategy Inventory (Students' SRSI), Teachers' Self-Regulation Strategy Inventory (Teachers' SRSI), students' interviews forms, students' reflections, and the teachers'…

Axelsen, Taryn; Galligan, Linda; Woolcott, Geoff – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
Many teachers and pre-service teachers of mathematics lack experience with teaching methods, such as mathematical modelling, that require a conceptual learning and problem solving approach. To address this problem, this paper presents a study of a method -- the Enhancement, Learning, Reflection (ELR) process -- that has been designed to improve…

Brown, Raymond; Redmond, Trevor – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
This paper focuses on using sociocultural theory to support a context-based approach to teaching mathematics. A goal of the research was to explore the opportunities-to-learn of using a context-based approach to enrich student engagement with mathematics. This paper focuses on the practice of one female secondary school teacher as expressed…

Wilkinson, Jane; Edwards-Groves, Christine; Grootenboer, Peter John; Kemmis, Stephen; Lennon, Sherilyn – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
The vexed question of how and why some pedagogical practices persist and others do not lies at the heart of sustaining changes that enhance teaching quality. Understanding the role that leadership practices can play in this process is crucial: schools play decisive roles in allocating life chances for young people. This paper draws on findings…

Boardman, Alison Gould; Polman, Joseph L.; Dalton, Bridget; Scornavacco, Karla – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
Project based learning (PBL) provides opportunities for teachers and students to create learning spaces that are authentic and relevant. Much of this work is taking place in STEM contexts, with few studies exploring PBL integration in English language arts (ELA) classrooms. In this co-design project, we collaborated with 13 9th grade ELA teachers…
