Topic Maps is concerned with capturing information and knowledge and making it easier to share and reuse. It is therefore of great use in education and has already been applied in a number of interesting ways, in Norway and elsewhere. This presentation discusses some of the many applications of Topic Maps in the educational sector.
The main focus of the presentation is on Grep ("Grip") a major national project in Norway whose goal is to make the complete National Curriculum for children aged 6-19 widely and easily available in a form that offers many new and exciting possibilities.
The presentation will discuss the background for the project, why Topic Maps was chosen as the underlying technology, and how it is currently being used. It will show how the curriculum is structured as a topic map, and how it can be used by pupils, teachers, providers of learning materials (including publishers and broadcasting companies), vendors of Learning Management Systems, and others involved in education to provide a richer and more interesting learning environment.
