|Narrative has been an important way to transmit
knowledge across generations, and is innate to the human nature. Narrative
is also a valuable vehicle to structure knowledge and to help us in the
process of meaning making. Due to the explorative and complex nature of
narrative, an intelligent learning environment (ILE) based on in a narrative
approach can promote several kinds of activities for learners:
By applying a narrative approach in the development of an ILE, its is possible
to attain an application that may help the learners to share ideas and points
of view, to experience a particular situation by engaging in a role-playing,
or even to post reflect on an action taken within such environment.
- co-construction: participate in the construction of a narrative;
- exploration: engage in active exploration of the learning tasks, following
a narrative approach and trying to understand and reason about an environment
and its elements;
- reflection: engage in consequent analysis of what happened within
the learning session.
This workshop was held in conjunction with the AIED'05 conference, 18-22
