Computer Science and Educational Software Design: A Resource for Multidisciplinary Work in Technology Enhanced Learning

By Pierre Tchounikine

Constructing academic software program calls for considering, problematizing, representing, modeling, imposing and examining pedagogical pursuits and concerns, in addition to conceptual versions and software program architectures. computing device scientists face the trouble of realizing the actual concerns and phenomena to be taken into consideration in academic software program initiatives and of heading off a naïve technocentered viewpoint. nevertheless, actors with backgrounds in human or social sciences face the trouble of realizing software program layout and implementation concerns, and the way desktop scientists interact in those tasks.

Tchounikine argues that those problems can't be solved by means of development a type of “general theory” or “general engineering methodology” to be followed by means of all actors for all initiatives: academic software program tasks might correspond to very various realities, and will be carried out inside very assorted views and with very varied issues of shock. therefore the problem of realizing every one others’ views and elaborating a few universal floor is to be thought of in context, in the thought of venture or standpoint. To this finish, he presents the reader with a framework and ability for actively making an allowance for the relationships among pedagogical settings and software program, and for operating jointly in a multidisciplinary option to boost academic software.
His ebook is for actors engaged in learn or improvement initiatives which require inventing, designing, adapting, enforcing or interpreting academic software program. The middle viewers is Master’s and PhD scholars, researchers and engineers from desktop technological know-how or human and social sciences (e.g., schooling, psychology, pedagogy, philosophy, communications or sociology) attracted to the problems raised via academic software program layout and research and within the number of views that could be followed.
