Searching to Learn with Instructional Scaffolding [article]

Arthur Câmara, Nirmal Roy, David Maxwell, Claudia Hauff
2021 arXiv   pre-print
While several approaches for improving search engines for the learning scenario have been proposed, instructional scaffolding has not been studied in the context of search as learning, despite being shown  ...  To investigate the effectiveness of these approaches with respect to human learning, we conduct a user study (N=126) where participants were tasked with searching and learning about topics such as 'genetically  ...  To counter this issue, the learning sciences provide us with the concept of instructional scaffolding for a classroom environment [6, 26, 32, 47] .  ...

Pedagogical Design and Evaluation of Interactive Information Retrieval Learning Environment [chapter]

Kai Halttunen
2011 Teaching and Learning in Information Retrieval  
IIR instruction should also equip learners with transferable skills to manage searching in different operational IR systems and interfaces (Halttunen 2004; Morville and Callender 2010).  ...  These ill-defined rules for proceeding are important elements of IIR instruction. Learners should be supported with motivating cues and hints, without providing too ready-made solutions.  ...  Supporting the Learning Process with Anchoring, Scaffolding, and Fading Anchored instruction is strongly associated with situated learning and constructivist learning environments.  ...

Constructivism versus Cognitive Load Theory: In Search for an Effective Mathematics Teaching [article]

Hamzah Upu, Bustang
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Cognitive load theory, on the other hand, suggests that the free exploration of a highly complex environment may cause a heavy working memory load and led to poorer learning.  ...  Advocates of this view further argue that constructivist strategies provide learners with information that exceeds their working memory capacity, and thus fail to efficiently guide learners' acquisition  ...  In constructivist approaches such as problem-based learning and inquiry learning, students are provided with so-called scaffolding to support students' learning of both how to do the task as well as why  ...
