Intelligent Tutoring Systems: Exploring Issues in Learning and Teaching Writing. CECE Technical Report No. 3.
Neuwirth, Christine M.
This paper argues that Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) offer the potential for advancing existing techniques for computer assisted instruction and deepening the understanding of issues in the learning and teaching of writing. The paper: (1) outlines the goals and significance of research in ITS, emphasizing their value in formulating knowledge about teaching more explicitly; (2) analyzes the pedagogical assumptions underlying research in ITS, focusing on theories of discovery learning and learning by doing; (3) describes the architecture of these systems; and (4) illustrates the instructional design issues by describing "Parnassus," a project to construct an ITS for exploring instructional design issues in teaching students to write. (Forty-five references and one figure are attached.) (RS)
