Abstract

Teachers adapt their lessons with or without the use of technology - but in a traditional class setting they target the imaginary “average student”. This paper discusses how the teacher’s “wisdom of practice” can intervene and inform the Technology Enhanced Learning process. Our methodology is developed and enacted upon two theories: a domain-specific learning design theory in mathematics and a generic model derived from curriculum studies. The products of the intervention are: an adaptive learning strategy and an adaptive e-course in the domain of mathematics. Also, a roadmap is proposed concerning the stakeholders’ involvement, especially the active role of the teacher in the design process. It is based on conceptual mappings between the design-based research steps and the theories used to orientate the research.
