Title: Learning ‘number sense’ through digital games with intrinsic feedback
Abstract: Digital environments have the potential to support learning in many different ways. The seminar will present an account of how we can use what we know from neuroscience, cognitive science and pedagogy to develop a theory-driven approach to designing a digital environment for learning.

The idea will be exemplified in terms of ‘dyscalculia’, a developmental neural deficit simply defined as a lack of ‘number sense’. The neuroscience can help us understand what the educational implications might be; cognitive science demonstrates the behavioural difficulties it generates; pedagogy tells us what learners need to do to build this type of formal conceptual understanding.

The seminar will illustrate how a digital environment can help these learners, such as the nature of the personalised adaptivity and feedback that is unique to digital environments, and has the potential to provide a highly effective learning experience.
