INTERACTIVE, COLLABORATIVE AND ADAPTATIVE LEARNING TOOLS - The TexMat Example

A. M. Breda, E. M. Rocha, M. M. Rodrigues

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to describe a model for long distance learning/teaching tools that uses the World Wide Web (WWW) as a vehicle for the design and delivery of a learning/teaching environments in the context of mathematics basic education. We will illustrate such applications through TexMat, aimed specifically for the 5th and 6th grades of Basic Portuguese School - 10 to 12 years old youths. The goal of these tools is to paint a bigger vision of how technology can impact learning, teaching and training. We begin by giving an overview of the general principles underlying these applications, emphasizing the understanding of how cultural, cognitive and technological tools shape a support learning and knowing environment. A concrete example is also present.
