2015 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12

This project focuses on equation solving in Algebra I for seventh and eighth grade students. The goal of this research is develop an on-line, game-like learning environment called APLUS (Artificial Peer Learning environment Using SimStudent) in which students learn by teaching a synthetic peer called SimStudent, and use this technology to understand how and when students learn by teaching. Learning by teaching is an exciting and innovative approach to learning and instruction that is often reported to be effective in classroom trials. However, little is known about the underlying cognitive and social theory on how and when students learn by teaching.
