VORTRAG: TRANSMEDIA APPROACHES TO NEXT GENERATION LEARNER RESEARCH

Wien (OTS) - This presentation will describe the Next Generation Learner research program of the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative. Our research employs transmedia storytelling principles as a unifying construct for projects investigating cognitive adaptability, intelligent tutoring, serious games, and virtual worlds. Dr. Raybourn will discuss these projects and provide a practical framework for incorporating transmedia into training and education.
Dr. Elaine Raybourn has led award-winning computer game research in multi-role experiential learning, social simulations, and designing training systems that stimulate intercultural communication competence, and adaptive thinking.

Currently Elaine is on assignment from Sandia National Labs to the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative which is part of the Office of the Deputy Secretary of Defense (Readiness) where she leads research teams investigating next generation learners' cognitive adaptability and interactions with future learning technology.
