The problem of convergence is an important one for designing collaborative-learning environments. Ideally, learning environments allow novices to work together to achieve convergence of correct understanding, without constant support from experts. In order to achieve this, software designers need to investigate properties of the environment that support convergence. One of these properties is multiple linked representations (MLRs). In this paper, I describe AudioExplorer, a learning environment…

Medium-Based Design: Supporting Bricoleur Designers

This article puts forth a design method, medium-based design, that is a well-formed method grounded in theory that offers designers an alternative approach to designing learning environments.

Medium-based design: Extending a medium to create an exploratory learning environment

The characteristics of exploratory learning environments and medium-based design are described and grounded in related work, and the product and process of two environments are detailed to show how medium- based design enables the creation of exploratories learning environments.
