Abstract Title: Using Intelligent Tutoring Systems in Physics Education within Latin-American Scenarios: Results from Learning Basic Electric Circuits Concepts
Abstract: Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) are well defined tools to develop specific units of learning. In the research field there exist different approaches and proposals, here we find the Cognitive Tutor Authoring Tools, these let to the teachers and instructional designers to develop Example-Tracing Tutors that focuses on the design and implementation of ITS for solving problems by students. In countries as the USA the development, implementation and research of these kinds of tutors is quite stable, reporting results that show the benefit of use them in the learning process. In Latin-America the use of ITS is practically unexplored, in present work we present the results of the design and implementation of ITS for learning the basic concepts of electric circuits with high-school students in a public school of Mexico. The results were analyzed with normalized gain and with concentration-factor graphs.
