6 Framework Society is demanding new types of training; Distance learning through the web is the answer; Universities can provide these new services; The development of education material for web delivery is extremely expensive and time consuming There is a need of new tools, contents and services.
7 An essential glossary Doc Centre : il data base globale Back office : il sistema di controllo e tutoring Module : un modulo didattico, circa 15 lezioni, circa 50 ore Question : domanda posta durante lo studio Exercise: esercizio complesso eseguito tramite GIS DTD : data type definition XML : linguaggio usato per sviluppare i contenuti dei moduli ORACLE : un DBMS proprietario Bundle : tutto il sistema
8 MUTATE goals Development of the MUTATE Bundle Develop contents for 11 modules Demonstrate the validity of the concept Several short seminars (Fall 1999 / Spring 2000) Full Open GIS Programme (Fall 2000)
9 MUTATE goals sono tra loro integrati ma sono completamente indipendenti. Si possono usare solo i servizi, solo il sistema, sviluppare nuovi contenuti ed usare quelli esistenti.

17 Pedagogic guidelines Learning model - Laurillard (1993)
18 A cognitive apprenticeship model Collins, Brown, and Newman (1989) have proposed a model of "cognitive apprenticeship with four building blocks Content To operate effectively in any setting, learners need three types of content: "Tricks of the trade"--problem-solving strategies that experts pick up with experience. Cognitive management strategies--goal setting, strategic planning, monitoring, evaluation, and revision. Learning strategies--knowing how to learn, including exploring new fields, getting more knowledge in a familiar subject, and reconfiguring knowledge already possessed. Methods Teaching methods should give learners the chance to observe, engage in, invent, or discover expert strategies in context. The Collins, Brown, and Newman model includes a variety of methods that systematically encourage student exploration and independence. Sequencing Learning should be staged so that the learner builds the multiple skills required in expert performance and discovers the conditions under which they apply. This requires a sequence of increasingly complex tasks, increasingly diverse problem-solving situations, and the staging of learning so that students develop a feel for the overall terrain before attending to details. Sociology The learning environment should reproduce the technological, social, time, and motivational characteristics of real world situations where what is being learned will be used. It is only through encountering subject matter knowledge in context that most students will learn when, where, and how the knowledge applies to other situations.
