On "Learnable" Representations of Knowledge: A Meaning for the Computational Metaphor. AI Memo 441.
diSessa, Andrea A.
This paper discusses a number of educational concerns suggested by the computational metaphor which proposes the comparison of processes of mind to realizable or imaginable computer activities. Among the concerns discussed are those which include procedural modes of knowledge representation and control knowledge--knowing what to do. Also included is a collection of heuristics for educational researchers and curriculum developers which are intended to address the issues raised. An extensive section of examples is also included which are meant to concretize those heuristics. Twelve references are listed. (Author/LLS)
