Title of the talk:
Learning mathematics from (digital) textbooks and other curriculum resources
There has been a growing interest in students’ use of textbooks and other curriculum resources in the past decade. This is grounded in changes in students’ learning landscapes, particularly the increasing availability of digital resources and a changing perspective on students’ agency for their learning, which includes selecting and using resources. To encourage students’ agency in selecting appropriate resources and using them effectively for their learning, there is a need to understand how students learn mathematics and how their use of resources is incorporated into this activity.
In the talk, I first provide an overview of recent research on students’ use of textbooks and other curriculum resources comprising both paper and digital resources. As automated feedback is one of the prominent features of digital textbooks, I second focus on students’ use of automated feedback and how it influences their mathematics learning. Finally, I draw conclusions regarding students’ agency for using their mathematics textbooks and other curriculum resources for learning mathematics.
