Robust Student Knowledge: Adapting to Individual Student Needs as they Explore the Concepts and Practice the Procedures of Fract
Robust knowledge consists of both conceptual and procedural knowledge. In order to address both types of knowledge, offering students opportunities to explore target concepts in an exploratory learning environment (ELE) is insufficient. Instead, we need to combine exploratory learning environments, to support students acquisition of conceptual knowledge, with more structured learning environments that allow students to practice problem-solving procedures step-by-step, to support students’ acquisition of procedural knowledge. However, how best to combine both kinds of learning environments and thus both types of learning activities is an open question. We have developed a pedagogical intervention model that selects and sequences learning activities, exploratory learning activities and structured practice activities, that are appropriate for the individual learner. Technically, our intervention model is implemented as a rule-based system in a learning platform about fractions. The mod...
