Using Expert Systems To Build Cognitive Simulations


Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 28, Number 1, ISSN 0735-6331


Cognitive simulations are runnable computer programs for modeling human cognitive activities. A case study is reported where expert systems were used as a formalism for modeling metacognitive processes in a seminar. Building cognitive simulations engages intensive introspection, ownership and meaning making in learners who build them. (Author/AEF)
