Προσωπικό Προφίλ

Ο Μάριος Πιττάλης είναι Διδάκτορας της Διδακτικής των Μαθηματικών. Εργάστηκε ως δάσκαλος για 3 χρόνια. Από το 2003 εργάζεται στο Τμήμα Επιστημών της Αγωγής του Πανεπιστημίου Κύπρου και από το 2012 κατέχει θέση μόνιμου εκπαιδευτικού προσωπικού. Τα τελευταία 3 χρόνια διδάσκει και στο Διαπανεπιστημιακό Πρόγραμμα Μεθοδολογίας της Διδασκαλίας των Μαθηματικών του Τμήματος Μαθηματικών του Εθνικού και Καποδιστριακού Πανεπιστημίου Αθηνών. Σπούδασε επιστήμες της Αγωγής στο Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου και ακολούθως παρακολούθησε μεταπτυχιακές και διδακτορικές σπουδές στη διδακτική των μαθηματικών. Συμμετείχε στη διεξαγωγή διεθνών ερευνών καθώς και σε σημαντικό αριθμό ερευνητικών προγραμμάτων που χρηματοδοτήθηκαν  από το Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου, το Ίδρυμα Προώθησης Έρευνας και την Ευρωπαϊκή Επιτροπή.  Διαθέτει πλούσιο συγγραφικό έργο με περισσότερες από 60 δημοσιεύσεις σε διεθνή επιστημονικά περιοδικά, πρακτικά διεθνών συνεδρίων και κεφάλαια σε βιβλία που εκδίδονται από διεθνείς οίκους. Είναι διορισμένος από το Υπουργείο Παιδείας και Πολιτισμού ως επιστημονικός συνεργάτης στην ομάδα ανάπτυξης του Αναλυτικού Προγράμματος των Μαθηματικών στην Κύπρο. Επιπρόσθετα, συμμετέχει ενεργά τα τελευταία 6 χρόνια στην ανάπτυξη του νέου διδακτικού υλικού των μαθηματικών για το δημοτικό σχολείο.

Τα ερευνητικά του ενδιαφέρονται εστιάζονται στην ανάπτυξη της τρισδιάστατης γεωμετρικής σκέψης των μαθήτών, στην ανάπτυξη διδακτικών προγραμμάτων στα μαθηματικά που ενσωματώνουν νέες τεχνολογίες και επιταχύνουν τη διαδικασία της γνωστικής ανάπτυξης των μαθητών. Έχει ασχοληθεί με την εξέταση των στρατηγικών των μαθητών στη λύση προβλημάτων αναλογικής σκέψης, τις δυνατότητες που προσφέρουν τα λογισμικά δυναμικής γεωμετρίας για ανάπτυξη της ικανότητας απόδειξης και τη γνωστική επιτάχυνση των μαθητών με τη χρήση τεχνολογίας στη διδασκαλία των μαθηματικών.
