Designing an online resource for collaborative GCSE Mathematics revision
Bowman, Katherine (2016) Designing an online resource for collaborative GCSE Mathematics revision. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)]
Education has embraced a constructivist way of learning within British secondary classrooms, with Ofsted naming student centred learning as an element of effective teaching and the 2015 National Curriculum for Mathematics citing discussion as a means to remedy misconceptions. Never-the-less, the bulk of revision materials which can be found online follow a behaviourist learning style, with teachers telling students how to solve problems and posing a multitude of practice questions. A review of literature was conducted to find out how the constructivist approach to learning could be embraced in the online environment.
