Using Educational Dialogues To Design Systems for Learning.
Cook, John; Oliver, Martin; Conole, Grainne
In this paper, a model is presented that uses educational dialogues to support the design process for learning support systems. The model is argued to provide a structure that links pedagogically motivated empirical studies of student-tutor-system interactions to problem specification and system design, and to result in the creation of learning technology systems capable of supporting learning. This model assumes an iterative life cycle model of software design, in which dialogue can be both an input (in the form of data for analysis) and an output (the result of learners using a well-designed system). The model has been derived from analysis of patterns of system development, and is related to approaches to cyclic models in educational theory and research methods. Two contrasting studies are used as illustrative examples of this iterative life cycle. The paper concludes by presenting a comparison between this approach and related developmental models: Kolb's experiential learning and Action Research. (Contains 11 references.) (Author)
