The learning sciences, education, and technology: Issues and opportunities

Presenter Dr. John Bransford, James W. Mifflin University Professorship and Professor of Education, University of Washington

Abstract Research in the learning sciences provides useful guidelines for designing and using technology to enhance learning in higher education environments. Key principles from learning research will be discussed, and examples of technology-enhanced learning environments will be illustrated and analyzed. Special emphasis will be placed on the concept of adaptive expertise┬┐ as a gold standard for higher education and on the kinds of experiences that appear to help students begin on a path toward adaptive expertise. Efforts to achieve this goal require rethinking what we teach and how content knowledge is organized, who we are teaching and how they differ from us as students, how we teach, and how we assess success.
