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

Pierre Tchounikine


constructing academic software program calls for considering, problematizing, representing, modeling, enforcing and reading pedagogical targets and concerns, in addition to conceptual versions and software program architectures. desktop scientists face the trouble of knowing the actual matters and phenomena to be taken under consideration in academic software program initiatives and of warding off a naïve technocentered viewpoint. nevertheless, actors with backgrounds in human or social sciences face the trouble of figuring out software program layout and implementation concerns, and the way computing device scientists have interaction in those tasks.

Tchounikine argues that those problems can't be solved through construction a type of “general theory” or “general engineering methodology” to be followed via all actors for all tasks: academic software program initiatives may perhaps correspond to very varied realities, and should be performed inside of very assorted views and with very various issues of outrage. therefore the difficulty of figuring out each one others’ views and elaborating a few universal floor is to be thought of in context, in the thought of undertaking or point of view. To this finish, he presents the reader with a framework and skill for actively considering the relationships among pedagogical settings and software program, and for operating jointly in a multidisciplinary technique to improve academic software.
His booklet is for actors engaged in study or improvement initiatives which require inventing, designing, adapting, enforcing or examining academic software program. The center viewers is Master’s and PhD scholars, researchers and engineers from computing device technological know-how or human and social sciences (e.g., schooling, psychology, pedagogy, philosophy, communications or sociology) drawn to the problems raised through academic software program layout and research and within the number of views which may be followed.
