The Role of Metadata in the Design of Educational Activities
How can dynamic geometry documents be shared? There exist several
repositories of learning resources where this can be done. Each
repository has its own specificities. In the process of understanding
how dynamic geometry resources are selected and shared, preparing for
the Open Discovery Space federation , we attempt to describe the role
of the metadata for the potential users of the learning resources: what
purposes it serves, and when it is useful or not. We do this based on
the log-books of actual maths teachers of the i2geo platform whose
experience and professional practice of teaching sets particular utility
of the metadata: how they find the resources, assess the resources'
qualities, and evaluate the cost of possibly needed adaptations: all
depends on the practice.
