Six Years of Knowledge Networking in Learning Sciences and Technologies
This report presents a series of in-depth reflections about the work of the Center for Innovative Learning Technologies (CILT) from 1997 until 2004. Each member of the CILT team (Principal investigator, postdoctoral scholar, project coordinator and manager) provided their personal reflections on what they, and all of us as a group, have learned from the attempt to stimulate the development and implementation of important, technology-enabled solutions to critical problems in K-14 STEM learning in

Grounding Collaborative Knowledge Building in Semantics-Based Critiquing
In this paper we investigate the use of Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA), Critiquing Systems, and Knowledge Building to support computer-based teaching of English composition. We have built and tested an English Composition Critiquing System that make use of LSA to analyze student essays and compute feedback by comparing their essays with teacher's model essays. LSA values are input to a critiquing component to provide a user interface for the students. A software agent can also use the critic fe

Resource-adaptive Selection of Strategies in Learning from Worked-Out Examples
Most tasks can be pursued by using different strategies (Logan, 1985; Reder & Schunn, 1998). In this paper we focus on strategies of learning from worked-out examples. Within a resourceoriented framework these different strategies can be classified according to their costs and benefits. These features may determine which strategy will be selected for accomplishing a task in situations with certain resource limitations. We investigate specific hypotheses about strategic adaptations to resource li

New and changing teacher roles in higher education in a digital age
Digital tools are increasingly being used to support teaching in higher education. The tools place new demands on the tasks and responsibilities of the teacher, and can influence teacher roles. In this study we investigate the long-term use and development of a tool for facilitating the negotiation of meaning in argumentative student texts, through peer and teacher feedback. In this setting we argue that new teacher roles have emerged.

We Have Met Technology and It Is Us
The chapter explores the relationship between technology and intelligence with an emphasis on technologies as forms of tool-mediated social practices. This involves the argument that although tools are constituents of a technology, it is the way in which tools are deployed as part of a social practice that is crucial. Artifacts are considered as the foundation blocks of technology.

Les aliments de demain - Gérard Pascal (audio)

Conférence du 29 février 2000 par Gérard Pascal.

Certains annonçaient il y a quelques décennies l'alimentation future sous forme de pilules. Il n'en a rien été et il n'en sera rien. C'est à partir du progrès rapide des connaissances scientifiques, des innovations technologiques et de la perception par le consommateur du rôle de l'alimentation, que l'on peut tenter de faire des prévisions à court terme. L'alimentation est un facteur d'environnement qui peut non seulemen
