Underwood, Jody S.; Hoadley, Chris; DiGiano, Chris; Stohl, Hollylynne; Hollebrands, Karen
This paper describes the Educational Software Components of Tomorrow (ESCOT) project. The focus of the project was on principles that support problem-solving and learner-centered design issues, and the purpose was to garner lessons from a large educational software development project to share with the learning sciences and other interested communities who develop learner-centered software. The Identifying Design Principles in Educational Applets (IDEA) project, background of ESCOT, the Math Forum's Problems of the Week (PoWs), data mining for design principles, and design principles are presented.
