A Telematics Learning Environment on the European Parliament: The ParlEuNet System.
Reggiori, Alberto; Best, Clive; Loekkemyhr, Per; van Gulik, Dirk-Willem
The ParlEuNet (European Parliament Network) under development at the Joint Research Center of the European Communities is a Web-based information system that will provide a multimedia educational platform for 10 secondary schools across Europe. Schools, teachers and pupils will use the system to teach, learn about, and prepare collaborative projects on the European Parliament. State of the art Internet technology together with a set of pedagogical models will be employed to give live access to a highly dynamic multimedia database and promote a student-centered problem based learning. Web servers, browsers, digital certification, Java/JavaScript, URN and metadata technologies will allow an easy and transparent access to a set of resources. The pilot experiment under development will have to provide a validation platform to propose useful, transferable models on learning in a telematics environment for generalization in a maximum number of European schools. The purpose of this paper is to give a general idea of the ParlEuNet system, showing its component parts, discussing its possible uses and describing the basic techniques that will be used to implement it.
