Control Education

The term interactivity is becoming common in teaching and specially in engineering studies. Interactivity is associated with a set of graphical representations, elements, and parameters interconnecting each others, in such way that if some element is modified, the rest are updated immediately and only spending a short interval of time. Interactivity provides new possibilities in researching and teaching, making it possible to study problems at different complexity levels and using a new interactive philosophy relatively difficult some years ago.

Interactive tools are considered a great stimulus for developing the students intuition. They attempt to demystify abstract mathematical concepts through visualization for specifically chosen examples. The power of the interactive tools sometimes induces the user to play around with different dynamic objets while forgetting the real meaning of such graphical elements. Thus, users must understand that interactive tools are abstractions of theoretical concepts, and the full learning must be completed as a mixture of both. For this reason, interactive tools are recommended as support to consolidated theoretical books or lessons looking for this combination between theory and practice.
