PME WORKING SESSION ON VIRTUAL MANIPULATIVES

Organizers: Patricia S. Moyer-Packenham, Utah
State University & Jennifer M. Suh, George Mason
University (United States)

Presenting Participants: Lyn English (Australia),
Kate Highfield (Australia), Ingemar Holgersson
(Sweden), Azadeh Jamalian (Canada), Ulrich
Kortenkamp (Germany), Silke Ladel (Germany),
Berner Lindström (Sweden), Taylor Martin (United
States), Helen Osana (Canada), Serkan Ozel
(Turkey), & Stephen Tucker (United States)

Researchers in this working session will explore
theoretical rationales and concepts to better
understand virtual manipulatives (VMs) as
resources/tools for learning and development by
examining questions such as: What terminology and
frameworks help researchers communicate about
this work? What big ideas can we glean from the
research being conducted worldwide? In what ways
does research on concrete manipulatives and other
visualizations inform the work on VMs? What
methods are researchers using and what research
questions are important to our collective field
studying the impact of VMs on achievement and
affect? How do we advance research on VMs as
these dynamic objects move from web-based
environments to hand-held, touch-screen and
augmented platforms?

International researchers from Australia, Canada,
Germany, Sweden, Turkey, and the USA have
committed to participate and share their work in
the session. During the 2-day working session,
different researchers will provide brief
overviews of key topics on VMs, followed
immediately by discussion on the topics. Multiple
key topics will be initiated and discussed
consecutively during the two days.

The group's goal is to explore the topics above
resulting in a book proposal with chapters on
virtual manipulatives.
