Effects of two types of feedback on mathematical reasoning in a computerized environment are compared. Metacognitive feedback (MF) is based on self-regulation learning using metacognitive questions that serve as cues for understanding the problem. Result feedback (RF) means giving cues that pertain only to the Ž nal outcome. A total of 108 sixth-grade(More)
BACKGROUND The present study is rooted in a cognitive-metacognitive approach. The study examines two ways to structure group interaction: one is based on worked-out examples (WE) and the other on metacognitive training (MT). Both methods were implemented in cooperative settings, and both guided students to focus on the problem's essential parts and on(More)
The purpose of this study was twofold: First, to investigate the effects of metacognition and email interaction between teacher-student on learning to interpret and construct graphs. Second, to describe the email interaction on three levels of interaction: tutorial, metacognitive and life. Participants were 50 ninth-grade students (boys and girls) who(More)
This paper describes a research whose main focus is the use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) in mathematical classrooms and the didactical possibilities linked with its use. The possibilities of integrating Self-Regulated Learning (SRL) within the CAS environment are brought into focus. Forty-three Israeli students (mean age 13.3) were assigned to two(More)
The main purpose of the present study was to investigate the differential effects of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) and metacognitive training on mathematical reasoning. Participants were 83 students (boys and girls) who studied algebra in four eighth-grade classrooms randomly selected to four instructional methods: CAS embedded within metacognitive(More)
Various tools have been designed to classify the wholistic/analytic cognitive style, based mostly on behavioral data that reveals little about how these processes function. The main goal of this study is to characterize patterns of eye movements (EM) that are typical of learners with tendencies toward wholistic/analytic styles. Forty students completed the(More)
The study investigated the effects of two reflection support programs on elementary school mathematics teachers’ pedagogical problem solving view. Sixty-two teachers participated in a professional development program. Thirty teachers were assigned to the self-questioning (S_Q) training and thirty two teachers were assigned to the reflection discourse (R_D)(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of co-operative and individualised Logo environments on creativity and interpersonal relationships regarding academic recognition and social acceptance. Participants were 83 students who studied in three eighth grade classrooms: one was exposed to a co-operative Logo environment (N = 30), the other to an(More)
