A framework describing students' mathematics learning experience with a tablet-based pedagogical medium : the case of a geometry exploration
In this study, we presented a theoretical framework that describes factors of student’s learning experience in a tablet-based learning environment with math apps. The theoretical framework is based on a synthesis of the literature. We further illustrated through empirical data the underpinning factors of our proposed theoretical framework and provided data to illustrate the learning experience of 60 Grade 6 students exploring a triangle through the use of tablets and Geogebra apps. The findings suggested that students were actively engaged in the learning process since they were exploring independently the elements of a triangle. In addition, the affordances of the tablet and Geogebra apps, such as the haptic dragging, reshaped the learning trajectory and students’ perspective on the mathematical content.
