Abstract

A cognitive tool (CT) called Interactive Perimeter Learning Tool (IPLT) was devised to assist the teaching and learning of a primary mathematics topic, the 'perimeter of closed shapes,' in a mobile technology supported classroom. The potential for integrating the IPLT with traditional pedagogical practices was investigated through an administration of pre-test and post-test to students, an interview for teacher and a questionnaire survey for students. The findings show that the students attained statistically significant improvement in the learning outcome within this learning context. The teachers and students were enthusiastic about using the IPLT in teaching and learning this subject topic. This study reveals that the integration of CT in mobile technology supported classroom could stimulate learner-centred learning of the subject knowledge. Copyright © 2007 IOS Press.
