CoLDEx aims at developing and using new IT approaches
and computational tools to
foster scientific experimentation, modelling and simulation in distributed
collaborative settings in an inter-cultural (European-Latin American) community
of learners. Our efforts will result in the creation of innovative pedagogical
scenarios. A common denominator for the learning domain is the study of visual
and other perceptual phenomena, including astronomical and seismic measurements,
from both a scientific and a subjective experiential perspective.
The project will start with local learning communities sharing a rich everyday context. The target groups will range from higher secondary education to academic beginners. Computer-mediated collaboration tools will contribute to forming integrated synchronous/asynchronous access to a "group memory" on different levels.
