ICT-enhanced Mathematics Education within the Framework of a Knowledge Manifold
2004 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents the Knowledge Manifold educational architecture and a number of tools (developed by the KMR group), which enable the construction of interactive mathematics learning environments that support a learner-centric, interest-oriented form of “knowledge pull”. They include the Virtual Mathematics Laboratorium , constructed with the Conzilla concept browser, the Mathemagic™ portfolio built in the SCAM portfolio, and the CyberMath shared 3D virtual reality environment. The pedagogical aim of these tools is to increase the cognitive contact with mathematics, e.g. by modeling its contexts, visualizing its concepts and interacting with the geometrical forms behind its formulas.
