Parallel Structures of Computer-Assisted Signature Pedagogy: The Case of Integrated Spreadsheets
Computers in the Schools Volume 29, Number 1, ISSN 0738-0569
This article was motivated by the authors' work on a project with a group of 2nd-grade students in a computer lab of a rural school in upstate New York. From this project, one goal of which was to provide a capstone experience for a teacher candidate in teaching application-oriented mathematics with technology, the ideas about parallel structures of two universes--the teacher's and the students'--that echo Shulman's structures of signature pedagogy have been developed. In the article the authors introduce the notion of computer-assisted signature pedagogy and explore its features through the combined lens of teaching and learning using the concept of Type I/Type II technology integration.
