Abstract

Statistics deals with the uncertainty of real world phenomena. It is natural that statistics uses technology, especially in the part of 'doing statistics' by easing the burden of computation needed in statistical techniques. The modern technology provides opportunity not only for easing computational burden, but more importantly, for creating innovative instructional technology that integrates content, pedagogy and technology for teaching and learning statistics. This article presents a real-time web-based system that mimics the entire process of a statistical investigation cycle for solving real world problems. The general learning framework used for the development of the system is the six characteristics of meaningful learning. The recommendations made by GAISE are used as the guidance for integrating content, pedagogy and technology in statistics.
