Roles of the Body in Learning
In recent years research in fields as diverse as philosophy, pedagogy, psychology, and anthropology has shown that the knowledge people possess in practice may not always be linguistically expressible 1. Part of what practitioners know can certainly be and normally also is formulated in textbook knowledge as well as in rules of thumb, sayings, and the like, but still, a large part is more readily understood as made up of skills, ‘know how’, ‘ways of going about the practice’, and so on,

Learning Content and Interoperability
In the era of Internet and new information and communication technologies one of the most important things is appropriate use of technologies in order to achieve desired results. In present paper, they are compared two case studies – on one hand there they are presented research results about interoperability in two open-source learning environments developed in Sofia University, Bulgaria and, on other hand, there are given results from “South West Wales Interoperability Project”, sponsore

A note on organizational learning and knowledge sharing in the context of communities of practice
The knowledge management (KM) literature emphasizes the impact of human factors forsuccessful implementation of KM within the organization. Isolated initiatives for promoting learning organization and team collaboration, without taking consideration of the knowledge sharing limitations and constraints can defeat further development of KM culture. As an effective instrument for knowledge sharing, communities of practice (CoP) are appearing to overcome these constraints and to foster human collabo

Towards a product for teaching formal algebra
This paper describes a research work whose objective is to help students to learn algebra with a computer. Firstly, we summarise the theoretical foundations and we describe a prototype devoted to the factoring problem. With this prototype, the student solves problems without making the calculations. The student can also observe the system solving a problem and providing explanations. Secondly, we summarise several experiments we carried out with students and we describe the results we got. Last,

Computer-Supported Scripting of Interaction in Collaborative Learning Environments: Framework on mul
Collaboration scripts aim to facilitate effective interaction patterns for collaborative learning that do not occur spontaneously. So far, diverse non-generic scripts have been conceptualized and investigated in CSCL environments. The specification of collaboration scripts aims to provide a common terminolgy for describing scripts and to abstract the core design principles of scripts to better understand effects and mechanisms of collaboration scripts and to apply and re-apply collaboration scri

Using domain-specific and generic knowledge to support discovery learning about geometrical optics i
Students encounter many obstacles during scientific discovery learning with computer-based simulations. It is hypothesized that an effective type of support, that does not interfere with the scientific discovery learning process, should be delivered on a ‘just-in-time’ base. This paper explores the effect of facilitating access to knowledge and skills through just-in-time information. An experiment was conducted in which a group of students who worked with a computer simulation on geometrica

11.302J Urban Design Politics (MIT)
This is a seminar about the ways that urban design contributes to the distribution of political power and resources in cities. "Design," in this view, is not some value-neutral aesthetic applied to efforts at urban development but is, instead, an integral part of the motives driving that development. The class investigates the nature of the relations between built form and political purposes through close examination of a wide variety of situations where public and private sector design commissi

Using Perspective in Narrative Learning Environments
Several empathic applications have been developed over the last years but can we redirect that empathy to specific characters? This paper focuses on the intention to induce empathy in children and stimulate role taking by presenting a narrative through the perspective of a specific character. The use of perspective is achieved by showing the events that happen in the story but without impartiality. We will describe a narrative-based application designed to help children cope with bullying situat

Integration of virtual players into a pedagogical simulator
The development of learner activity is a key element in the improvement of ITS (Intelligent Tutoring Systems). In business simulation, the learner is stimulated by competition with other learners. In practice, it is not always possible to find enough participants, hence the idea of virtual player participation. The SIMPLUS system proposes a generic approach to this end and creates virtual players within a business simulation without modifying the simulation itself.
