The COVID-19 public health crisis and the subsequent confinement induced a series of profound changes to teaching and learning in education all over the world (Lancker and Parolin 2020). Mid-March 2020, the University of Luxembourg also switched from on-campus classes to schooling at home for all courses. This transition was more or less smooth for the teaching staff and the students. In this paper, we present our reflections, as lecturers in the “Bachelor en Sciences de l’Éducation”, on how we adapted three courses and the internships, which could not happen as usual. We describe and discuss which aspects of our teaching approaches and the settings within which we have been working so far, might have contributed to a rather successful response to the current health crisis. The insights gained via these forced changes are discussed in terms of lessons learned for future instructional design decisions. [less ▲]

This study reports the use of automated tutoring and scaffolding implemented in the module “arithmetic word problem” in the educational technology software MathemaTIC in grade 3 (age 8 to 10). We examined 246 students with access to MathemaTIC and receiving tutoring and scaffolding through a one-to-one learning setting with this technology. The control group (n=226) had access to the same learning tasks and worked with paper-and-pencil without MathemaTIC but with their teachers. Results showed that the experimental group finished with higher outcome scores than the control group. This paper will outline the study and attempts to explain these results. [less ▲]

When we address the learning of mathematics in elementary school, we imagine pupils doing experiments, discoveries, and combining the different elements from arithmetics to geometry. Pupils interact with their environment and try to use their learned skills to get a deeper understanding of the world. They engage in a mathematical thinking process and try to interact with their environment. However, when you visit a classroom, you find a rather old fashioned teaching based on a deductive approach where imitations of technics play an essential role. Based on our observations, pupils learn mainly through to repetitions in textbooks. Experimentation, if any, comes as additional work, it is seen as a ludic activity rather than as real learning activity. In our research, we inquired about different ways to engage pupils in an experimental approach. We used digital and physical modulation, augmented reality, and various educational technologies. In one of our first studies, we designed a tutoring system to foster process-related skills in mathematics within the educational software MathemaTIC . We collected data on pupils in assessments on transferring mathematical thinking from instructional technology to the everyday classroom teaching. In a second study, we worked with pupils from elementary schools, kindergarten, and from the special needs section to go beyond two-dimensional representations and discover how mathematics operates in three-dimensional settings. Pupils worked on designing software and three-dimensional printing. We collected data on how pupils and parents perceived the learning and teaching and how this influences the further thinking in mathematics. In a holistic approach, we aimed to identify how pupils, teachers and parents perceive the learning through these new technologies and how it affects the learning and teaching. Our research happened in onsite and remote teaching. In this conference, we will present results from the different studies, give insights into our research, and present future experimental investigations. [less ▲]

In the Luxemburgish national curriculum for elementary schools (MENFP, 2011) experimentations and discoveries of mathematics concepts in courses are strongly recommended. Elementary school teachers should engage students in active mathematical modelling approaches, where they can develop processes and content skills through discoveries. Moreover, learned skills should be connected to real-world problems and situations to foster a better understanding of students’ living environments. Nevertheless, this teaching culture in mathematics is unusual in elementary schools and teachers tend to teach based on textbooks. Students mostly learn mathematics by imitation and repetition rather than through modelling mathematics with real-world problems and situations. Thus, to develop new methodologies in teaching mathematics and to meet the requirements of the national curriculum, we designed different technology-enhanced teaching and learning methods to engage students in experimental approaches within and outside classrooms. Moreover, we conducted three studies with digital and physical modelling, augmented reality, and a tutoring system in elementary school mathematics courses. Based on our collected data, we identified settings and tasks likely to support active mathematical modelling approaches. [less ▲]

In this article, we present the objectives and first achievements of the PIAF project supported by the European Union and aiming at developing computational and algorithmic thinking in basic education. This project brings together researchers in educational sciences and computer science from four countries (Belgium, France, Germany and Luxembourg) around the theme of teacher training. More concretely, the aim is to define a framework (competency framework, pedagogical scenarios) enabling teachers to (i) appropriate the concept of computational and algorithmic thinking and (ii) implement learning activities that promote the development of this kind of thinking in children.

In elementary school, teaching and learning activities aim to develop, among others, students’ skills to acquire deeper understanding of their living environments. There are numerous opportunities for students to recognize forms, shapes, and mathematical connections in everyday situations. These everyday situations can be simulated in classrooms; however, educational technologies offer new approaches to extend classroom activities, teachers can simulate and design shapes through Augmented Reality and 3D printing within or beyond the classroom. To stimulate students’ everyday mathematical connections utilizing these technologies could assist in developing activities outside the classroom in urban or in natural environments. Through this approach students could utilize or enhance their mathematical and technical skills within their usual living environments. Utilising educational software such as MathCityMap, GeoGebra 3D Calculator, and other 3D modelling software we developed examples of tasks that could offer easy transitions from in- to out-side of classrooms. In this paper, we will describe learning and teaching aims of these tasks and outline further research and development directions to broaden opportunities to develop students’ mathematical, design and modelling skills.

The Teaching in elementary school is mostly based on paper-pencil approaches and does not yet rely primary on educational technologies. But educational technology has found its way into the elementary schools, this based on various numbers of governmental initiatives launched during the last years in Luxemburg. The aims of these initiatives were to support students in mathematics and foremost render improvements on both skill settings, content and process. However using educational technology in mathematics does not jointly mean teaching and learning process skills. There are many different types of educational technology in mathematics, from tutoring systems to dynamic mathematical software and drill and practice software, only to name those as examples. We want to identify educational technologies and methodologies which are most likely to foster process skills (problem solving, modeling, argumenting, representing and communicating) in mathematics. Therefore we would work on a set of educational technologies offered to the students in elementary school in Luxemburg and evaluate their impacts on the fostering of process skills in mathematics.

In diesem Beitrag stellen wir die Integration der Dynamischen-Mathematik-Software GeoGebra in die technologiebasierte Assessment-Plattform TAO vor. Diese Kombination von Anwendungen schafft neue Lern- und Beurteilungsmöglichkeiten in einem modernen Unterricht: die Lernerfolge im Geometrieunterricht werden, im Vergleich zu einem klassischen Unterricht, gefördert und eventuelle Hindernisse beim Kompetenzerwerb können präzise identifiziert werden. Außerdem wird die Studie im Rahmen des Forschungsprojektes GeoGebraPrim beschrieben, wobei die Versuchsgruppe der 9-jährigen Kinder während ihres Lernprozesses Zugang zur Technologie haben, um mathematische Eigenschaften anhand von dynamischer Geometrie zu entdecken. Im Pre-Test unterscheiden sich die Versuchs- und Kontrollgruppe kaum. Die Versuchsgruppe erlangt allerdings signifikant bessere Resultate in den beiden Post-Tests sowie erstklassige Resultate in dem TBA-Test. [less ▲]

Dans le cadre du « Digital Lëtzebuerg » et suite à l’appel Horizon 2020 par la commission européenne, le gouvernement du Luxembourg a lancé des initiatives pour l'implémentation du numérique dans ses différents ministères. Dans ce contexte, l’éducation nationale a initié le développement d’un environnement numérique pour l'apprentissage des mathématiques à l’écolefondamentale pour les élèves de cycle 4,Université du c'est-à-dire âgés de 10 à 12 ans. Suite au constat de faibles performances en mathématiques aux épreuves standardisées de début de cycle 3 (élèves de 8 à 10 ans), la question d'élargir l'implémentation de cet environnement numérique à ce cycle s'avère opportune. En effet, les résultats à ces épreuves indiquent que d’une part un quart de ces élèves n’arrive pas à atteindre le niveau socle et que d’autre part les résultats ne se sont que peu améliorés entre 2011 et2013. En d'autres termes, il y aurait donc un quart de la population scolaire de cycle 3 qui n’ aurait pas les compétences nécessaires pour suivre les apprentissages prévues en mathématiques. Les élèves concernés sont majoritairement d'un milieu socio-économique faible et issus de la migration.Ainsi, une étude est envisagée pour voir dans quelle mesure l’usage de l’environnement MathemaTIC favoriserait le développement des compétences en mathématiques, notamment dans le domaine de la résolution de problèmes arithmétiques. Cette étude se réalisera entre 2016 et 2018 avec un échantillon de 20 classes (400 élèves). Les items seront construits en partant des niveaux testés dans les Ep.Stan 3.1 et en se basant sur le plan d’études du cycle 3. Pour ce faire, l'approche adoptée est celle dite " centrée utilisateur ", issue du domaine des Interactions Hommes-Machines (IHM). Les compétences au début et à la fin de l’utilisation-même de l'environnement MathemaTIC par les élèves de cycle 3 seront mesurées par les épreuves standardisées Ep. Stan, sous le couvert du Lucet.
