The History and Development of the Learning Sciences:An Interview with Professor Janet Kolodner
詹妮特•科洛德纳(Janet Kolodner)教授是美国乔治亚理工学院交互计算系的董事教授,同时也是《学习科学杂志》(Journal of the Learning Sciences) 的创刊主编,国际学习科学学会(International Society for the Learning Sciences,简称ISLS)的创始人、首任首席执行官。她的研究领域集中于学习、记忆、计算机中的问题解决。科洛德纳教授率先提出了基于案例的推理( Case-based Reasoning, 简称CBR),是应用基于案例的推理来促进教育和创造性问题解决方面的领军人物。科洛德纳教授目前在美国国家科学基金会中任“赛博学习:变革教育冶(Cyber learning: Transforming Education) 的教育研究项目官员。借助于本次访谈,我们希望能够了解到科洛德纳教授对学习科学现今发展与未来趋势的看法,以及从她现在所负责的国家科学基金会如何扶持教育研究的。
Professor Janet Kolodner is Regents' Professor in the School of Interactive Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She was Founding Editor in Chief of the Journal of the Learning Sciences, founder and former Executive Officer of The International Society for the Learning Sciences. Her research has addressed issues in learning,memory,computer and human problem solving. She pioneered Case-Based Reasoning (CBR), and her lab originated the notion of a Case-based Design Aid (CBDA). She has been a leader in applying CBR in classroom instruction and creative problem solving. Since 1994, Kolodner has focused on using this model to design middle school science curriculum, which is known as Learning by Design( LBD). It is a key component of the 9th graders' science curriculum called Project-Based Inquiry Science (PBIS). With her students, she has also applied this approach to informal education. The most notable case was design of Kitchen Science Investigation, an after-school program focusing on learning science from cooking experiences. At present, she is on loan to the U. S. National Science Foundation, serving as Program Officer for a new program called Cyberlearning: Transforming Education. Through this interview, we attempt to know how Prof. Kolodner's views on current status and trends of the learning sciences research. We would also like to understand how NSF sets up education research programs and supports education research, starting from the grant programs that she is managing.
