Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Inspiring Innovations // The teaching and learning of science have far-reaching curricular objectives which require teachers, students, and parents to be engaged in the teacher-parent-learner (TPL) nexus. During this endeavour, learners are guided to relate their prior knowledge to the science concepts (Grade 9, age group 13-14 years) during a home task activity under the supervision of their parents through an initial collaborative engagement (ICE) on the myptim platform (www.myptim.org). After finishing this activity, learners are invited to submit their work on the platform following their parents’ confirmation through the parent’s platform. In this paper, through an exploratory multiple case study involving six students and four parents, we present preliminary findings regarding the use of the myptim platform for the study of a lesson on ‘Measurement’. The empirical evidence collected through unstructured interviews with the participants indicates that the myptim platform is a promising technological pedagogical tool for the advancement of the teaching and learning of science, in particular, physics. This paper contributes to literature on technology integration through the perspective of teacher-parent-learner nexus. // Paper ID 6910
