Storyboarding: A method for bootstrapping the design of computer-based educational tasks

Ian Jones
2008 Computers & Education  
There has been a recent call for the use of more systematic thought experiments when investigating learning.  ...  The storyboards produced can be considered as "virtual data" created by thought experiments that provided an audit trail of evolving design ideas and enabled peer feedback to be sought.  ...  and have been explored as a learning tool for pupils (e.g.  ...

Tools for Thought: The Case of Mathematics

Valeria Giardino
2018 Endeavour  
A B S T R A C T The objective of this article is to take into account the functioning of representational cognitive tools, and in particular of notations and visualizations in mathematics.  ...  In order to explain their functioning, formulas in algebra and logic and diagrams in topology will be presented as case studies and the notion of manipulative imagination as proposed in previous work will  ...  In particular, I would like to thank the participants of the workshop "Tools of Reason, The Practice of Scientific Diagramming from Antiquity to the Present" at Stanford University for the articles contained  ...

Embodied Design Cognition: Action-Based Formalizations in Architectural Design

Daniel Smithwick, Larry Sass
2014 International Journal of Architectural Computing  
As computational design tools become more physically interactive and integrated into our environment we need new research frameworks to develop theories of physical design action as a form of knowledge  ...  Symbolic theories of design knowledge traditionally frame design activity as a mental process and as a result researchers have not fully explored the potential for bodily-based computational design knowledge.We  ...  contrary to the traditionally defined role of the body as an output device of internal thought, the body serves as a physical extension of thought capable of generating structure upon which new shapes  ...

These tools should be able to scan the mapping and discover distorted thoughts as classified by the CBT method. We will use extreme situations as examples to illustrate distorted thoughts.  ...  Based on the above assumption, it is possible to map thoughts, including distorted thoughts and analyze them methodically with the help of linguistic tools.  ...  Distorted thought text is characterized by the use of superlatives such as "never".  ...

The use of a visual learning design representation to support the design process of teaching in higher education

Shirley Agostinho
2011 Australasian Journal of Educational Technology  
<span>Over the last decade there has been considerable research and development work exploring how university teachers can document their teaching practice in such a way as to enable the sharing of ideas  ...  an aid to design because it provided a summary of pedagogical practice that could be used to effectively communicate and share ideas, and also enable reflection.  ...  Catherine thought that the use of multiple documentation tools added a dimension of richness thus aiding the comprehension of a learning design.  ...

productions since they presently share the same attributes of notationally based allographic work, which has traditionally manifested only as music or as literary output.  ...  As a visual practitioner, what is particularly significant to my inquiry is that this change in medium is deemed to have brought about a change in language that affects the very nature of autographic work  ...  It is a tool for the mind, an instrument for the magnification of thought, potentially an "intelligence amplifier," to use H. Ross Ashby's term.  ...

A human-centric API for programming socially interactive robots

J. P. Diprose, B. Plimmer, B. A. MacDonald, J. G. Hosking
2014 2014 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC)  
The Cognitive Dimensions Framework was used as a design tool during the design process and the API was validated by implementing an exemplar application.  ...  This is because current programming tools either require programmers to work at a low level or lack features needed to create certain aspects of social interaction.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENT The authors thank the reviewers for their helpful feedback, the University of Auckland PhD Scholarship programme for financial support, the participants of the user study, Chandan Datta  ...

Model-Based Tool Support for Service Design [chapter]

2020 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Besides, the tool supports the generation of partial views of models based on a particular notation from models made with another one, along with the corresponding relations model.  ...  This paper introduces a modelling environment for service design that currently supports 5 different notations (Business Model Canvas, e³value, Service Blueprint, Process Chain Network and BPMN).  ...  This work has been partially funded by the Regional Government of Madrid, through the FORTE-CM project (S2018/TCS-4314) and the Spanish MINECO, through the MADRID project (TIN2017-88557-R).  ...

CanonSketch: A User-Centered Tool for Canonical Abstract Prototyping [chapter]

Pedro F. Campos, Nuno J. Nunes
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In order to solve this problem we need both usable and expressive notations and tools that enable the creation of user-interface specifications that leverage the design and thought process.  ...  In a paper presented at a recent Workshop on MB-UID [9], we argued that in order to achieve a stronger market acceptance of modeling tools, a new generation of usercentric tools would have to emerge.  ...  Our remit with CanonSketch is to achieve a modeling tool for MB-UID that is as easy to use as a drawing application.  ...
