"Learning about simulations of social phenomena by 10-14 year-old pupils"

The aim of this study is to examine pupils' reasoning, understanding and critical thinking when they are working with simulation tools to understand and describe social aspects in the real world. Also, we intend to investigate the development of pupils' interaction processes with each other and with simulation tools.

This study is a part of the LaSiRA project (Learning about Simulations as a Research Approach), led by Professor Pauline Vos. LaSiRA is an interdisciplinary project with the MODRN project (MODeling Religion in Norway), led by Professor LeRon Shults.



Markos Dallas received his bachelor degree (BEd) in Education Sciences for Primary Education from the Department of Primary Education at the Democritus University of Thrace, Greece. Due to his excellent studies in the third academic year, he was granted an award and a scholarship from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation (IKY). Supervisor: Professor Charalampos Sakonidis


Markos completed his military service in the Hellenic Army.


He also holds a master degree (MSc) in Mathematics Education from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Athens, Greece. Due to his overall performance, he was granted a scholarship from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation (IKY) for the completion of his studies. Supervisor: Professor Despoina Potari


Markos worked as a school teacher at the Primary School of Greek-French School "Jeanne d' Arc" in Piraeus, Greece.


He works as a Research Fellow at the University of Agder (UiA). He is PhD Candidate in Mathematics Education at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Faculty of Engineering and Science at the University of Agder. 

Faglige interesser

Markos specializes in Research in Mathematics Education.He is passionate about what he does.His research interests include the following subjects:

  • Social and cultural dimensions in mathematics education. Gender and mathematics.
  • Theories of learning and teaching in mathematics education focusing on sociocultural perspectives.
  • Mathematics in and out of school. Formal and informal mathematics.
  • Classroom argumentation and participation.
  • Metacognitive skills during the process of solving math problems.
  • Pupils’ reasoning and understanding of mathematical concepts within the real world. 
  • Use of social simulations in primary mathematics.

In 2013 he successfully completed an attempt to create a website called "Mathematics Education" aiming to inform on issues related to learning and teaching mathematics, which is developing and is visited by a considerable number of people. 

Given his research interest in issues of mathematics education, he carries on participating in conferences presenting research and also as a reviewer or member of the organizing and scientific committee. Also, he attends online courses and he is actively contributing in scientific communities.
