123 - Web support for e-learning: a constructivist computing approach

Abstract

The radical implications of emerging web technology for education motivate a reappraisal of the conceptual framework that surrounds computing. Empirical Modelling (EM) has been developed as a way of thinking about computing that emphasises the role the computer plays in supporting learning in a constructivist spirit. EM research on principles and tools over the last 25 years has established proof-of-concept for varieties of technology-enhanced learning particularly relevant to current and emerging educational environments. This paper reviews the progress towards developing web-based tools to support EM that can realise its full potential as a vehicle for learning.
