4.2.4 Collecting possible solutions This is the most creative part of the problem-solving process: it involves breaking the mindset within which situations are normally interpreted. Brainstorming is a good way to generate new approaches, by making sure that even apparently ridiculous ideas are not thrown out in the initial stages. Brainstorming has two basic principles: quantity is more important than quality, in the creative phase; critical comments are not allowed, at

How We Organize Knowledge: The Structure of the Disciplines
This program covers the ways in which the organization of knowledge and understanding can influence learning. It also introduces Bruner’s and Schwab’s ideas about the structure of the disciplines. Featured are a fourth-grade teacher, a 10th-grade biology teacher, and a ninth- through 12th-grade teacher, with commentary from Lee S. Shulman, president of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. How to get students to think like professionals is the topic.
Concepts and methods for exploring the future of learning with digital technologies. Kaleidoscope
Very little of the transformation of working and social life that has accompanied digital technologies is reflected in the practice of learning and teaching, or in the quality of research. Kaleidoscope's central aims are to fill these gaps in research by integrating existing European initiatives to develop a rich, culturally-diverse and coherent theoretical and practical research foundation for research and innovation, and developping new tools and methodologies that operationalize an interdisci
Contribution à lingénierie des systèmes conseillers : une approche méthodologique fondée sur
An advisor system is a system that proposes a just-in-time first-line help to the users of a given software, on the basis of an analysis of the actions and productions of the user. Within the Licef laboratory, two different types of advisor systems are developed: advisor systems dedicated to students using the Web-based interactive learning environments developed with Explor@ and advisor agents dedicated to courseware designers using the course design methodology MISA and its Internet-based work
Basic CoP-oriented Knowledge Management Tool offering basic CoP-adapted KM services
This deliverable presents the Knowledge Management (KM) services developped in the context of the PALETTE project. On the one hand, it presents the technical descriptions of basic KM services based on Corese/SeWeSe and Generis tools: these services provide low level operations of KM, they will not be directly used by the Communities of Practice (CoPs), but by the designers and the developers of the PALETTE project. On the other hand, it presents functional specifications and a first report of t
E-science, E-research and E-learning:
New Perspectives for Graduate Studies
The quality of education for doctoral students is closely linked to the quality of the research they undertake. Benefiting from technological advances, new distributed and collaborative research practices can be witnessed. The concept of e-science has emerged and evolved to the concept of e-research. These concepts bring about a new research philosophy and the notion of collaboratory. Our research project aims to develop a renewed doctoral training approach and to facilitate researchers' adoptio
Developing and Learning with Distributed Internet-based Performance Support Environment for Individu
This demonstration presents DIPSEIL Environment its methodology, functionality, workflow model and its interface in an example. We start with the description of developed Learning Objects for Internet-based Performance Support Systems with Educational Elements IPSS_EE_LOs. Then we present how IPSS_EE_LOs can be created and used in DIPSEIL for the development of Telecommunication Systems course.
Assessing the Outcomes of a Cross-Country Virtual Action Learning Programme for SME Development
In this paper the authors present an evaluation of a virtual action learning project out in 6 different countries so as to better inform those involved in SME manager development as well as researchers seeking to develop greater insights into the process of action learning and its outcomes. The project was set up with EU funding as a test of the principles of action learning in a virtual environment. An evaluationled approach was utilised. On the basis of this pilot, areas for further research a
The methodical approach to e-portfolio content formation
The paper develops a methodical approach to e-portfolio content formation. It includes several positions: application e-portfolio for different users category; substantiation of criteria for e-portfolio formations; design of curriculum and materials structure, which adequate to criteria set; developing complex project for realizing practical competences.
Web-based teaching as a performance enhancer in foreign language teaching in Sri Lanka
This paper discusses the results of a pilot study conducted at University of Kelaniya in integrating web-based teaching into the study programmes of German as a Foreign Language. Since German is not a language popular at secondary school level, student offering to read the language at the university commence language learning as beginners. Albeit the courses are designed to impart language knowledge to all students equally, the performance of the majority of students at examinations indicated th
Teaching the Digital Natives: Austrian Best Practice Projects
The following three projects promote e-Learning in Austrian schools and stimulate the change to student centred and collaborative learning and teaching. These projects bring teachers closer to learning habits of the digital natives and prepare our students for live long learning.
The remote experiment position in actual taxonomy
Taxonomy is a classification effort for establishment of learning/teaching operational objectives. There are some famous taxonomies, Blooms being the most quoted. In spite of the fact that some researchers have tried to explain the position of elearning in already known taxonomies, this subject was not too much in the general attention. In the paper the authors intend to go deeply and to analyze the position of the new methodology-remote experiment-in the actual taxonomies. In addition they ha
