Abstract

We present our approach to designing and evaluating tools that can assist teachers in classroom settings where students are using Exploratory Learning Environments (ELEs), us- ing as our case study the MiGen system, which targets 11- 14 year old students' learning of algebra. We discuss the challenging role of teachers in exploratory learning settings and motivate the need for visualisation and notification tools that can assist teachers in focusing their attention across the whole class and inform their interventions. We present the design and evaluation approach followed during the develop- ment of MiGen's Teacher Assistance tools, drawing parallels with the recently proposed LATUX workow but also dis- cussing how we go beyond this to include a large number of teacher participants in our evaluation activities, so as to gain the benefit of different view points. We discuss the results of the evaluations, which show that participants ap- preciated the capabilities of the tools and were mostly able to use them quickly and accurately.
