Abstract

CUELI, Marisol et al. Hipatia: a hypermedia learning environment in mathematics. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.1, pp.98-105. ISSN 1695-2294.  http://dx.doi.org/10.6018/analesps.32.1.185641.

Literature revealed the benefits of different instruments for the development of mathematical competence, problem solving, self-regulated learning, affective-motivational aspects and intervention in students with specific difficulties in mathematics. However, no one tool combined all these variables. The aim of this study is to present and describe the design and development of a hypermedia tool, Hipatia. Hypermedia environments are, by definición, adaptive learning systems, which are usually a web-based application program that provide a personalized learning environment. This paper describes the principles on which Hipatia is based as well as a review of available technologies developed in different academic subjects. Hipatia was created to boost self-regulated learning, develop specific math skills, and promote effective problem solving. It was targeted toward fifth and sixth grade students with and without learning difficulties in mathematics. After the development of the tool, we concluded that it aligned well with the logic underlying the principles of self-regulated learning. Future research is needed to test the efficacy of Hipatia with an empirical methodology.

Keywords : Hypermedia; interactive white boards; learning environment; self-regulated learning; mathematics.
