|Contents:||Software technology plays a considerable role in teaching and learning. E-learning applications, intelligent tutoring systems, collaboration environments, serious games, and many more software artefacts are used in teaching. In this seminar we will study the relation between software technology and teaching and learning.
Tools for learning are developing and spreading fast, but are often hampered by technological limitations and problems. For example, many tools that support students with solving mathematical exercises do not give feedback to students when they make an error. And hardly any tool reports common errors or problems of students back to the teacher. Fundamental concepts from computer science can make an important contribution to technology for learning. In this seminar we will in particular look at using strategies, rewriting, parsing, and other concepts, to improve assistant that help students solving problems in mathematics and computer science. The kind of problems we will look at are so-called procedural problems, such as gaussian-elimination in linear algebra, and rewriting logical expressions or proving a program correct.
