No dia 6 de dezembro, o grupo de pesquisa CCTE (Ciências Cognitivas e Tecnologia Educacional) do CIn-UFPE promove uma palestra com Korbinian Moeller, professor do Leibniz Institut für Wissensmedien em Tuebingen, Alemanha. O evento será realizado das 9h às 11h no Auditório do Centro.
O professor Korbinian é psicólogo e trabalha com neuropsicologia e educação matemática, tendo também uma linha de pesquisa ligada ao uso de tecnologias para educação matemática (ex. Math with the dancemat; Media support for arithmetic learning; Diagnosis and web-based interventions in mathematics impairments after elementary school).
O evento é promovido pelo CCTE, grupo de pesquisa interdisciplinar com pesquisadores nas áreas de ciência da computação, psicologia cognitiva, estatísticas e educação. Já lançou diversos modelos de ambientes de aprendizagem como o sistema de gerenciamento de aprendizagem Amadeus, a rede social Openredu e a plataforma de aprendizagem ubíqua Youubi.
Título da palestra: Embodied numerical learning using new digital media
Abstract: Didactic concepts like Active School emphasize the importance of physical movements to corroborate learning processes. Moreover, there is first empirical evidence demonstrating the beneficial influence of specific bodily movements on numerical processes such as using fingers for initial calculations or walking along a number line. These studies support the idea that the acquisition of numerical concepts can be facilitated by physical movements. New digital media like dance mats or the Kinect sensor not only allow for physical interactions with learning environments but also for measuring them. This way, embodied numerical trainings specifically addressing number-space associations and thus the mental number line become possible. Developing such trainings is important as the mental number line is argued to be a building block for adequate numerical-arithmetic development. In this talk, I will breifly outline the theoretical background of embodied numerical trainings before giving a summary of recent empirical studies on embodied numerical trainings using new digital media
Sobre o palestrante: Korbinian Moeller studied psychology at the RWTH Aachen University (Diplom 2006) and the University of Dundee in Scotland (M.Sc. 2006). Subsequently, he pursued his PhD at the Paris-Lodron University in Salzburg, Austria (until 2008) and the Eberhard Karls University in Tuebingen, Germany, (PhD in 2010). Since December 2012 Korbinian Moeller is heading the junior research group Neuro-cognitive Plasticity at the Leibniz-Institut für Wissensmedien in Tübingen, Germany. Additionally, he is professor for applied learning and knowledge psychology at the University of Tuebingen. His research interests focus on the cognitive and neuronal underpinnings of numerical competencies. He pursues these interests employing latest neuro-cognitive methods (e.g., fMRI/DTI, computational modelling) and the consideration of neuro-functional models. A particular focus of his work is on the investigation of the development and acquisition of numerical competencies and corresponding changes on the cognitive as well as the neural level. His approach is driven by the idea
that basic numerical competencies serve as building blocks for later numerical and arithmetic achievement and, thus, deserve specific interest and promotion.
