  1. 1. Designing Interactive Learning Environments to Support Learners’ Understanding in Complex Domains

    Author : Marcelo Milrad; Växjö universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; interactive learning environments; complex domains; social constructivism; collaborative learning; construction kits; system dynamics simulations; collaborative modelling tools.; Information technology; Informationsteknologi; Cognitive science; Kognitionsvetenskap; Media Technology; Media Technology;

    Abstract : This dissertation focuses on the design of interactive learning environments (ILEs) to support learning in complex domains. Previous research efforts in this field indicate that we lack a well-articulated design framework with sufficient detail to take us from a socially-situated, problem-based, collaborative learning perspective to the design of a particular learning environment for a particular subject domain.

    Abstract : The presence of computer technologies in our daily life is growing by leaps and bounds. One of the recent trends is the use of mobile technologies and cloud services for supporting everyday tasks and the sharing of information between users. READ MORE

  4. 4. An Exploration of Information Inadequacy: Instances that Cause the Lack of Needed Information

    Author : Miranda Kajtazi; Darek Haftor; Anita Mirijamdotter; Marcelo Milrad; Sören Brier; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; information; information inadequacy; information lack; information overflow; hermeneutic approach; grounded theory approach; Informatics; computer and systems science; Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap; Information Systems; Informatik;

    Abstract : Information is one of the most essential resources in our contemporary societies, as it guideshuman thinking, planning and subsequent actions, which in turn generates consequencesthat are desired or not. The Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in 2008, the tsunami in Indonesiain 2004, the Space Shuttle Challenger destruction in 1986 are just three instances ofdramatic situations, emerging continuously, where information plays a crucial role.
