Building bridges that are functional and structural
journal contributionposted on 05.11.2015 by Ian Jones
Any type of content formally published in an academic journal, usually following a peer-review process.
Upshot: In their article, Geraniou and Mavrikis describe an environment to help children explore algebraic relationships through pattern building. They report on transfer of learning from the computer to paper, but also implicit is transfer from concrete to abstract contexts. I make the case that transfer from abstract to concrete contexts should complement such approaches.
