Learning Framework for Educational Informatics

  1. 1. A Learning Framework for Use in Educational Informatics and Context-Rich Simulations Apollo Segall Spinoza Quinnell Toni Weezles Lyr Lobo
  2. 2. Projects featured Operation Relief Worker Rescue Challenge A team-based strategy challenge game set in a game simulation kit Mars Expedition Strategy Challenge Studying deep space exploration in a context-rich environment Image: launch to the Ayn Rand Space Station
  3. 3. Connection of a learning framework to professional identity and practice <ul><li>“ One of the hallmarks of professionals is their ability to use their experiences. </li></ul><ul><li>They do this by continually thinking about and reviewing their experience, and then by changing their actions and practice in the light of those reflections.” </li></ul><ul><li>- James, C.D., & Harper, et. al. (1993) The profile pack workbook , MacMillan, London. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Trivia 1 <ul><li>How do we connect a learning framework to one’s professional identity and practice? </li></ul><ul><li>Professionals reflect on their e_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ e </li></ul>

  8. 8. Definition of educational informatics <ul><li>Educational informatics melds the study of computer science with analysis of learning information and knowledge, to address the interface between computer, learning, and assessment sciences in the design of interactions between natural and artificial systems supporting learning, instruction, and discovery. </li></ul><ul><li>Informatics, and related application areas such as educational informatics, is an interdisciplinary field. (Scheessele, 2007). </li></ul>
  9. 9. Trivia 3 <ul><li>Educational informatics is an interdisciplinary field that Integrates </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>teaching and learning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>technology </li></ul></ul><ul><li>and a_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ </li></ul>
  10. 10. Collaboration and Control Game assessment Supports empirical evaluation and control of the players and game Figurines represent the players as they move around the region Game chat over the group’s voice channel makes it easy to offer new information and instructions
  11. 11. Basic functions <ul><li>Educational informatics bridges virtual & real worlds in support of context-rich simulations in challenge-based learning frameworks: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>data acquisition and presentation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>record keeping and access </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>communication and integration of information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>monitoring, information storage and retrieval </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>data analysis, decision support, and education </li></ul></ul>
