Preparation for Post Pandemic Society: Providing Technology-Supported Adaptive Scaffoldings for Students with Mathematics Learning Difficulties in Hong Kong Primary Schools

    Project: Research project

    Project Details


    In this project, we describe the background information of the proposed project, articulate the literature and rationales of the system development, as well as how to operate this project methodologically. Specifically, an interactive learning environment, namely, ScaffoldiaMyMaths with features of adaptive scaffoldings for mathematics problem solving and responsive assessment in the form of learning analytics is introduced. To explore the impact of ScaffoldiaMyMaths, experimental research design together with the pedagogical design of learning activities, will be conducted involving Grade 4, 5 and 6 primary students in Hong Kong. The statistical data analysis will be conducted on students mathematics achievement test, self-concept and motivation pre and post-tests for exposing the impact of scaffolding changes and scaffolding logic and the interaction effect between them on the changes of students learning performance. The beneficial impact of ScaffoldiaMyMaths on students with learning difficulties and typical achievers will also be compared for exposing the internal factors related to students performance. The study will not only fill the blank on technology-supported mathematics education for students with learning difficulties but also provide in-time facilitation for them to better adapt formal and informal learning contexts.
