Examining the Feasibility of Using Computer Supported Collaborative Work-Space in Pre-Service Mathematics Methods: A Vygotskian Perspective
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractMany elementary teachers lack the conceptual knowledge needed to teach even basicmathematics and thus create a weak link in the chain of mathematical learning for students. The socio-culturaltheory of L. S. Vygotsky may offer direction for the design of a concept-building mathematicsexperience for elementary education majors. Computer supported collaborative workspaces have thepotential to support and enhance a Vygotskian approach to mathematics learning for the preservice teacher.
