Seminar:

Constructing Graphical and Hypertextual Knowledge Representations for Learning

Jane Alexen Shuyska, Department of Education, University of Oxford, 15 Norham Gardens, Oxford, OX2 6PY, jane.shuyska@education.ox.ac.uk

Seminar content

This seminar will investigate ThinkSpace, a technology-based tool for collaborative learning and reflection. ThinkSpace is a simple idea combining computer-based concept mapping and a wiki in a tool that can be used for structuring and clarifying thoughts about complex material. The tool is used by groups of learners for creating an interlinked online knowledge repository – a mini encyclopaedia - in a wiki and constructing a corresponding graphical representation in the form of a concept map. Being hyperlinked to the wiki, the concept map provides both a navigational aid and overview of the wiki content, as well as being a tool for representing meaning. The wiki repository, as well as its graphical counterpart, are dynamic means for analysing, manipulating and interlinking content knowledge. The seminar will explore the potential of the process of creating multi-layered knowledge representations with ThinkSpace for encouraging active thinking about complex ideas.
