Explicating the Tacit Knowledge in Teaching and Learning. Technical Report No. 5.
Ways in which the emerging field of cognitive science can have a major impact on practical education are demonstrated by an overview of two projects: the work on Socratic tutoring by Collins and Stevens, and the diagnosing students' misconceptions in arithmetic by Brown and Burton. These two projects are cited as examples of how the techniques of cognitive science make it possible to analyze teaching and learning in genuinely novel ways. (Author/CMV)
