Project Plan

This project aims at developing and using new IT approaches and computational tools to foster scientific experimentation, modelling and simulation in distributed and collaborative settings in an inter-cultural community of learners. Our efforts will result in the creation of innovative pedagogical scenarios to address these issues. There is a common denominator for the learning content to be addressed: the study of visual and other perceptual phenomena from both a scientific and an experiential perspective, i.e. by combining scientific and engineering methods with the subjective inter-personal communication of phenomena in the learning community. Examples of the experiential phenomena to be studied are:
