Breakdown into the Virtual: User-Involved Design, and Learning.
Van Belle, Guy c. Jules; Soetaert, Ronald
This paper poses several questions as an introduction to examining educational technology and development. These include: "How Hard Is the Science?"; "How Human Are the Arts?"; "How Literate Are Martians?"; "From Data to Wisdom, Will the Real Hologram Stand Up?"; "From Wisdom to Creativity, Can I Have Another Piece of Teacher?"; "Panic Design and Positive Breakdown"; and "Open That Can of Software, Waiter." It then goes on to discuss the concept of user-involved design, a set of cooperative and participation techniques for coping with current field problems in education, from the organizational, technological, and socio-cultural point of view. The paper concludes by describing three projects being carried out in Flanders: (1) the development of a CD-ROM about multicultural childcare; (2) participation in the development of a virtual center on the World Wide Web for a European project called T3 (Telematics for Teacher Training); and (3) the creation of a Web-based course on cultural literacy at the University of Ghent.
