Viele Jahre war der Einsatz von computergestütztem Lehren und Lernen an (tragbare) Computer gebunden. Ob digitale Hilfsmittel, z. B. Laptop und Video-Projektor, zum Einsatz kamen war deutlich erkennbar. Spätestens mit dem ubiquitären Internet und den Smartphones in den Taschen der Studierenden ist diese Grenzziehung zwischen sog. „analoger“ d. h. h...

Much has been written lately about the potential of Learning Analytics for improving learning and teaching. Nevertheless, most of the contributions to date are concentrating on the abstract theoretical or algorithmic level, or, deal with academic efficiencies like teachers’ grading habits. This paper wants to focus on the value that Learning Analyt...

Individual learning is out of sync with the elements of a curricula and the daily program of a teacher. At a time when multidigit multiplication methods are taught, many children are not perfectly performing the basic multiplication table. Teachers organize settings for learning and they usually have no time to give an individual feedback to every...

Learning Analytics is an emerging field, because the analyses of a big amount of data can lead to deeper insights into how learning occurs. In this publication we introduce a new addition / subtraction trainer which assists teachers in their daily basic math education. A first field study points out that beside of typical mistakes also systematic o...

One of the first and basic mathematical knowledge of school children is the multiplication table. At the age of 8 to 10 each child has to learn by training step by step, or more scientifically, by using a behavioristic learning concept. Due to this fact it can be mentioned that we know very well about the pedagogical approach, but on the other side...
