Abstract : A group of American and Japanese psychologists, anthropologists, linguists and computer scientists gathered at UCSD to discuss the role of joint problem solving in the learning process. A central issue for the group was expert-novice interaction both when the expert is a human and when it is embodied in a microcomputer tutoring system. Much of the discussion focused on microcomputers as instruments for organizing instruction. The group addressed questions such as: are new principles of learning likely to arise out of research using microprocessors? What kinds of learning models are likely to be most effective in exploiting the power of this technology? How can principles of human interaction be applied to the design of learning environments?
