The Invention Coach: A computer-based environment that supports the transfer of STEM concepts
written by Marianna Lamnina, Helena Connolly, and Vincent Aleven
This work explores ways to scaffold invention activities to facilitate productive exploration of ratio structures in physical science equations, the goal of which is to prepare students to learn from later expository instruction. We have developed the first computerized Invention Coach that provides adaptive guidance as middle school students work through invention tasks. This paper will discuss the rationale behind our novel pedagogical model, which draws upon empirical studies of human teachers guiding invention, as well as prior research on the core learning processes that invention promotes. Preliminary findings from a classroom study of the Invention Coach provide some evidence of the system's efficacy in enhancing transfer.
