Tools for bridging the cultures of everyday and scientific thinking
A perspective about science education is developed which has implications for the design of interactive learning technologies. Current philosophical work concerning the interpretative nature of scientific inquiry is reviewed as a context for discussing the situation of the child in developing scientific understanding. This view of learning ernphasizes the relationships among informal understanding, conceptual change, and enculturation into modes of scientific discourse. A prototype software syst

After a careful examination of the current version of JXTA protocols, we observed the need for improving the original JXTA protocols, such as pipe services, to ensure reliable communication between peer nodes and the discovery and prese
