The Role of Situational Interest in Personalized Learning

//The Role of Situational Interest in Personalized Learning

El presente estudio extiende la evidencia sobre los beneficios de la aplicación de estrategias de personalización del aprendizaje, tales como la incorporación de los intereses del alumnado en la realización de tareas de aprendizaje, y su impacto en el interés situacional de los estudiantes. A continuación, se puede ver el resumen del artículo:

Context personalization refers to an instructional design strategy that incorporates students’ out of school interests into learning tasks like math problems. Recent research has shown that personalization positively affects students’ situational interest and their performance and learning in math, but students seldom obtain both outcomes. This study confirmed that personalizing four units of algebra story problems to students' out of school interests was sufficient to increase their situational interest in the task and to improve the efficiency with which they solved problems within the intelligent tutoring system. Months later, those who solved personalized problems also reported greater interest in mathematics and scored higher on a classroom math test than a control group. These results extend evidence for the benefits of personalization, and confirm that personalizing problems to incorporate student interests at an appropriate depth and specificity can simultaneously produce effects on math interest and learning.
