Social and cognitive processes in knowledge acquisition

Brian R. Gaines
1989 Knowledge Acquistion  
The model is developed in depth to generate taxonomies of human knowledge processes and use these to analyze the roles of a wide variety of computerbased systems in supporting these processes.  ...  The model is used to highlight strengths and weaknesses in the current state of the art in knowledge representation.  ...  Much of the research reported in this paper is part of a long-term collaborative study with Mildred Shaw of the cognitive foundations of human knowledge processes.  ...

Try again. Fail again. Fail better: the cybernetics in design and the design in cybernetics

Ranulph Glanville, Ranulph Glanville
2007 Kybernetes  
The criteria for the assessment of design work are shown to be different from those appropriate in other, more traditionally acceptable approaches.  ...  Purpose -The purpose of this paper is to explore the two subjects, cybernetics and design, in order to establish and demonstrate a relationship between them.  ...  This is a basic quality Pask requires for participants in a conversation [25] . (The conversational model also allows the same process to operate between different individuals.  ...

Three Active Learning Strategies to Address Mixed Student Epistemologies and Promote Conceptual Change

Calvin S. Kalman, Mark J. Lattery
2018 Frontiers in ICT  
Each approach stresses the need for students to critically examine their own ideas in relation to target course ideas and discuss their ideas with peers.  ...  In this paper we review three instructional strategies that show promise to address this challenge in the context of an introductory physics classroom: (1) the Reflective Writing and Labatorial interventions  ...  As students struggle to respond to new information (contrary experimental evidence, logic arguments, and resources from related physical system), new models are generated.  ...

2012 Foundations of Science  
Yet, RC has the potential to go much further. I claim that RC provides the foundation of a new world-view in which we can overcome hard scientific problems.  ...  The mind is necessarily an epistemological solipsist, in contrast to being an ontological solipsist who maintains that this is all there is, namely a single mind within which the only world exists.  ...  In alphabetical order the external reviewers were: Marco Bettoni, Christian Brassac, Dewey I.  ...

Co-creation of experiential qualities

Vuk Uskoković
2011 Pragmatics & Cognition  
However, whereas constructivist cognitive theories face difficulties when attempting to explain the experiential commonality of different cognitive entities, objectivistic theories fail in explaining the  ...  This paper undertakes to compare and eventually combine these two major approaches to describing cognitive phenomena.  ...  Therefore, if one seeks to unravel some of the natural mysteries, one has to know how humans know, whereas if one seeks to know oneself, one must face the mysteries of nature in one's quests.  ...

Special Issue on Theory for Learning Technologies: Editorial

Martin Oliver
2002 Journal of Interactive Media in Education  
During the editing process, I received an irate email from one of the early readers of the pre-print material, complaining that no progress towards an overall theory for this area seemed to have been made  ...  Approaches vary considerably -from theory as tool, to theory as principle; from theory building, to theory using; from disciplines as diverse as film studies, psychology, sociology and education.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to acknowledge the funding of the EPSRC for the empirical work described in this paper 4 , and wish to thank Richard Bornat and Bernard Sufrin for making Jape available to  ...

The Construction and Globalization of the Knowlege Base in Interhuman Communication Systems

Loet Leydesdorff
2003 Canadian Journal of Communication  
This adds globalization to the historically stabilized patterns of communications.  ...  At the first level information is exchanged and provided with meaning, and at the second level meaning can reflexively be communicated.  ...  Thermodynamic entropy, however, is different from probabilistic entropy because the former is measured in terms of Joule/Kelvin, while bits of information are dimensionless. 3.  ...

Cognitive Constructivism and the Epistemic Significance of Sharp Statistical Hypotheses in Natural Sciences [article]

J.M. Stern
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The basic metaphor presented in this text, as a foundation for cognitive constructivism, is that of an eigen-solution, and the verification of its objective epistemic status.  ...  We believe that this alternative perspective, complementary to the one ofered by decision theory, can provide powerful insights and make pertinent contributions in the context of scientific research.  ...  , as shown in Boyd (1991) and Popper (1959 Popper ( , 1963 .  ...
