Integrating Learning Management Systems in Mathematical Problem Solving Classroom to Personalize Student Learning
Mathematical problem solving is a complex cognitive activity, which poses difficulties for both students with and without disabilities. Due to the large class size and time-limited whole-class instruction in traditional brick-and-mortar classrooms, teachers may experience difficulties setting personalized learning goals, adapting teaching content, and offering individual feedback to accommodate students' varying learning needs. This paper describes how middle school teachers can use Learning Management Systems (LMSs) to deliver personalized instruction in mathematical problem solving classrooms.
Learning Outcomes/Next Steps
Teachers can do five things to integrate LMSs in classrooms when implementing evidence-based practices:
1) Preparing math problems with familiar language;
2) Engage students in a multimedia environment;
3) Expose students to multiple strategies;
4) Assist students in reflecting on the problem-solving process; and
5) Progress monitor student progress.
