                        ---------- 
 
The ICCE conference series is a bi-annual event which is held in
an Asia-Pacific country. The first conference ICCE 93 was held in
Taipei, Taiwan. ICCE 95 is the second in the series of meetings and
will be organized under the umbrella of the AACE Asia-Pacific
Chapter which was formed after ICCE 93. 
 
ICCE 95 will focus on a broad spectrum of inter-disciplinary
research topics concerned with theories, technologies and practices
of applying computers in education. It aims to provide a forum for
scientific interchange among educators, cognitive scientists,
computer scientists, and practitioners throughout the world, and
especially from the Asia-Pacific region. 
 
ICCE is concerned with the current state of the art, and serves as
a reference basis for future research as well as the real-world
deployment of educational technologies. There will be tutorials and
invited talks, and demonstrations of working systems, prototypes
and selected commercial products. 
 
A unique feature of ICCE 95 is an Applications Track which offers
papers from Singapore and other Asia-Pacific countries that present
the best practices in the use of information technology for
education.

The State of Computers-in-Education in Malaysian Schools 
--------------------------------------------------------
ZORAINI WATI ABAS 
University of Malaya, Malaysia 
 
Abstract: It has been almost twenty years since the microcomputer
was born. It has occupied a prominent position in many classrooms
around the world. In Malaysia, the microcomputer has equally
attracted the attention of policy-makers and educators alike.
However, its position is still being carved in Malaysian schools
compared to schools in many other countries. 

The Ministry of Education has piloted a few computer projects in
Malaysian schools. It also encourages secondary schools to
establish computer clubs. Soon, the ministry will be launching
Internet use in secondary schools. The Prime Minister has also
announced that a computer subject must be taught in all schools.

As testimony to the keen interest in computer use in schools in
Malaysia, a group of people comprised of school teachers, college
and university lecturers and people from the private sector
established the Malaysian Council for Computers-in Education
(MCCE). MCCE's primary objective is to help promote computer use
in teaching and learning. 

How exactly have computers been promoted in Malaysian schools? This
talk will attempt to look at the country's past and present
computer-in-education and some of the future attempts to place
computers in the schools. 
 
About the Speaker: Zoraini Wati Abas is an associate professor at
the Faculty of Education, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia. She teaches educational computing and technology courses.
She has developed computer courses for Mara Junior Science College
and helped formulate UNESCO's informatics curriculum. She is also
the Chairperson of the Malaysian Council for Computers-in-Education
(MCCE). 

Cognitive Tutors: Theory and Reality 
------------------------------------
JOHN ROBERT ANDERSON
Carnegie Mellon University, USA 
 
Abstract: We will describe the factors which account for the
success of our cognitive tutors in promoting learning and the
factors which determine the success of these tutors in American
schools. We will define the concept of a "useful learning episode"
and explain how our tutors promote the frequency of such episodes
by carefully monitoring the state of a student's thinking and
learning. We will describe the problems created by the "cognitive
principles" approach for both producticizing and marketing the
tutors. Finally, we will describe the complexities created by
reform efforts in American mathematics education. 
 
About the speaker: John Anderson received his B.A. from the
University of British Columbia in 1968 and his Ph.D. from Stanford
University in 1972. He has been at Carnegie Mellon University since
1978 where he is a professor of psychology and computer science.
He has published a number of books including Human Associative
Memory (1973 with Gordon Bower), Language, Memory, and Thought
(1976), The Architecture of Cognition (1983), The Adaptive
Character of Thought (1990), and Rules of the Mind (1993). His
current research is involved with two enterprises. The first is
the study of the acquisition of cognitive skills. Much of this
research involves the development of intelligent tutoring systems
for mathematics and computer programming. Here research goals
include producing a general system for modeling and testing
cognitive skills, having a major impact on the effectiveness with
which these skills are taught, and understanding the transfer of
skills among domains. The second enterprise is to understand if
and how human cognition is adapted to the information processing
demands of the environment. As part of this effort he has developed
the ACT-R production system and applied to various domains of
memory, problem solving, and visual information processing. 
 
Statutory Information Technology and the Response of UK Schools 
---------------------------------------------------------------
JOHN GARDNER
Queen's University of Belfast, U.K. 
 
Abstract: This paper sets out the experiences of schools in the UK
in the light of statutory information technology (IT) requirements
in the national curriculum. In essence these requirements are
designed to address several educational goals for school students
including: that they are able to work competently and effectively
with a range of IT tools; that they become autonomous users of IT
to communicate and handle information, to support their problem
solving and creative work; and that they reflect critically on
their own and others' use of IT. 

The validity of these requirements is examined and their resource
implications are discussed with reference to recent
government-sponsored resourcing and curriculum development
initiatives. The impact and implications of the curriculum demands
are also examined from the point of view of the teachers and their
IT competence and attitudes. The extent of schools' readiness to
deliver the IT objectives is assessed and the successes are
recorded. Drawing on the most recent literature from the UK, Europe
and the US, the barriers to progress, which continue to exist, are
then analysed. These barriers fall into two broad categories: those
associated with the teachers (e.g., time for access, familiarity,
competence development, etc.); and those associated with hardware
and software (e.g .,appropriateness, availability, etc.). The paper
concludes with suggestions for strategies to overcome the barriers
identified. 
   
About the speaker: John Gardner is a reader in education and
Director of the School of Education, the Queen's University of
Belfast. For the last 15 years he has conducted research in the
field of information technology in education, specializing in
evaluative research. His current activities include R & D work and
evaluation under the Teaching and Learning Technology Programme.
He is also evaluating the impact of computerised integrated
learning systems on underachievers in schools. In 1992 he completed
a major policy evaluation on the use of portable computers in
schools. In all these studies he has employed qualitative and
quantitative research methods as appropriate. 

Network-Based Multimedia Environments 
for Collaborative Learning in Science 
-------------------------------------
LOUIS M. GOMEZ 
School of Education & Public Policy, Northwestern Univ., USA 
 
Abstract: The next decade brings widespread, networked, multimedia
interpersonal collaborative computing. Data collection,
exploration, analysis and collaborative work is being transformed
throughout science by new flexible data visualization tools. A
question-centered and collaboration-focused pedagogy is supplanting
more traditional lecture and demonstration-centered K-12
instruction. We find that extending media-rich and highly
interactive learning and teaching activities beyond single
classrooms establishes demanding development requirements for
high-performance computing and communications (HPCC). To create
"distributed multimedia learning environments" to serve the needs
of precollege science education, we have developed novel HPCC
technologies in the Learning Through Collaborative Visualization
(CoVis) Project. These developments involve the scaleable solution
of a wide-area broadband testbed network using public-switched ISDN
services that integrate desktop videoconferencing and screen
sharing, educationally-appropriate scientific visualization tools
in the geosciences, newly-developed structured hypermedia workgroup
softward, and standard Internet communication tools. These services
support synchronous and asynchronous collaboration with media-rich
data sharing (e.g., complex images, large data sets) among hundreds
of high school students within and across schools, who also use the
network for mentoring communications with university researchers
and other scientific experts. In the next several years, we will
be scaling the CoVis testbed to included over 50 schools and
thousands of students. 
 
About the Speaker: Louis M. Gomez is Associate Professor of
Learning Sciences and Computer Science and co-director of the
Learning Through Collaborative Visualization (CoVis) Project at
Northwestern University. The CoVis project focuses on bringing
next-generation computing and communication technologies along with
open-ended scientific inquiry to high school classrooms. Prior to
joining the faculty at Northwestern, Mr. Gomez was director of
Human-Computer Systems Research at Bellcore in Morristown, New
Jersey. 

Over the last several years Mr. Gomez has pursued an active
research program investigating techniques that improve human use
of information retrieval systems, techniques which aid in the
acquisition of complex computer-based skills, and the application
of networked compute technology to teaching and learning. 

Mr. Gomez received a B.A. in Psychology from the State University
of New York at Stony Brook and a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from
the University of California at Berkeley. 
 
Learning with Information and Communication Technologies: 
A Secondary School's Experience 
---------------------------------------------------------
CARMEE LIM and GINNY LEONG 
Raffles Girls Secondary School, Singapore 
 
Abstract: This talk is a sharing of a secondary schools experience
in planning and implementing an information technology programme
for its students. The following will be discussed in the talk: 
- The school's vision and mission 
- The conceptualisation of the school IT Vision: to create a new 
  learning environment for an information society 
- The 4-pronged approach of its mission 
- The objectives and strategies of the IT programmes for students 
- An overview of the various components of its IT programme 
- And how information and communication technologies had been used:
to enhance and enrich learning; to better prepare the students to
meet new challenges in the information society; to develop and
disseminate Internet materials, improve access to information; to
acquire and integrate information and knowledge; to gain experience
with communicating and learning with children from other countries;
for collaborative efforts between teachers and students in
dev-eloping multimedia learning packages and real life projects;
to organize and present information (Managing Real Life Databases);
and for image processing and graphics design (Creativity and
Expression skills) 

This talk will include demonstrations of students' projects,
feedback on the experience gained from the progamme implementation
and new prospect for learning beyond the traditional framework. 
 
About the Speakers: Carmee Lim has taught science and mathematics
at both secondary and pre-university levels in Singapore. She was
placed on the "1993 Honor Roll of Teachers" by the Association of
Science-Technology Centers, USA for her contribution to Science
Education in Singapore. As Principal of Raffles Girls' School, the
premier girls' school in Singapore, her information technology (IT)
vision of the school is to "Create a New Learning Environment for
an Information Society". For the past two years, the school's
mission has been to work towards promoting the effective use of
technology to improve the quality of teaching and learning. 

Ginny Leong is the Head of Department for Information Technology,
Raffles Girls' School. Before that, she was the Head of Department
for Humanities in Seletar Institute and the Project Director for
Computer-based Learning in the Curriculum Development Institute of
Singapore. She has taught mathematics, science and literature at
the secondary level and economics at the pre-university level in
Singapore. 

Digital Libraries as Learning and Teaching Support 
--------------------------------------------------
HERMANN MAURER 
Graz University of Technology, Austria 
 
Abstract: In this talk we will show how digital libraries can be
used to dramatically enhance learning and teaching. Much of  
the ideas and work to be reported on stems from a project of the
European Commission entitled LIBERATION, an acronym standing for:
LIBraries:Electronic Remote Access To Information Over Networks.

We will show that it is crucial to use hypermedia systems for
digital libraries that have a very flexible link concept , a solid
structural paradigm, certain data-base facilities and suitable 
charging mechanisms. Only in this way is it possible to define 
scopes of interest and to allow customisation of material without
violating copyright laws. We will also discuss how shortcomings of
current wide area networks such as Internet can be overcome in an
elegant fashion. The model to be described is currently being
implemented; large segments have already been tested successfully
and first experiences have been gathered. One of the key findings
is that one can generate material for digital libraries without

Knowledge Connection Corporation: 
Collaborative Canadian Initiative in Distance Learnware 
-------------------------------------------------------
JAMES R. ROSSITER 
Knowledge Connection Corporation, Canada 
 
Abstract: Knowledge Connection Corporation is a collaboration
amongst a number of leading Canadian telecommunications,
information technology, and learnware developer firms, as well as
educators and trainers. It was formed in early 1995, with seed
funding provided by the Province of Ontario, Canada. Distance
Learnware is defined as structured knowledge that can be delivered
electronically. 

The Corporation's activities fall into the following areas: 
- formative evaluations of Distance Learnware through alpha and 
  beta trials 
- collection and dissemination of information on Distance     
  Learnware, including market studies and "how-to" manuals 
- investment in tools for more effective development and/or      
  delivery of Distance Learnware. 

Initial projects in all these areas are underway. A report
summarizing innovative projects in technology and learning in
Ontario has been published, and will be available on the World Wide
Web. A manual for educators and trainers on interactive multimedia
teaching will be published in CD-ROM format in early 1996.
Descriptions of key activities in the field of Distance Learning
in Canada will be described. 
 
About the Speaker: James Rossiter is a scientist, entrepreneur,
and educator. He has recently been appointed Executive Director of
Knowledge Connection Corporation, a new collaborative initiative
to support enhanced quality and efficiency in the production and
delivery of Distance Learnware.  

While a graduate student, Dr. Rossiter spent a year and a half at
NASA-Houston, as part of a team designing a geophysical experiment
sent to the Moon on Apollo 17. After completing his doctorate in
Geophysics at the University of Toronto, he spent four years at the
Centre for Cold Ocean Resources Engineering in Newfoundland, where
he led a group of scientists and engineers developing ice hazard
detection systems. He is internationally recognized for developing
a practical method of measuring sea-ice thickness from a
helicopter. 

In 1983, Dr. Rossiter founded Canpolar Inc., a research and
consulting company which has developed technologies as varied as
novel fish processing equipment and a ground penetrating radar
system to inspect roads non-destructively. These innovations are
now being commercialized internationally through spin-off firms in
St. John's and Edmonton. 
 
The Ebb and Flow of Student Modeling 
------------------------------------
JOHN SELF 
University of Lancaster, England 
 
Abstract: Student modelling is the process whereby a computer-based
learning system develops and maintains an understanding of the
student using the system. At one time, the student model was
considered to be the key component in providing individualized
instruction, and a number of useful techniques were developed.
Then, as the intrinsic difficulty of the student modelling task
became apparent and as philosophies moved towards more
constructivist approaches than those perceived to be implicit in
systems based on student models, student modelling was largely
abandoned. In this talk, it will be argued that the tide is turning
again. Developers of multimedia learning environments are
increasingly realising that presentation needs to be adapted to the
individual learner. Systems based on the new social theories of
learning need student models represented using multi-agent
techniques from artificial intelligence. And the increased
precision and formalisation of student modelling techniques
provides the prospect of general-purpose student modelling shells.
The talk will review these recent developments.  
 
About the Speaker: John Self is a Reader in Computing at the
University of Lancaster, England, previous chairman of the
Artificial Intelligence in Education Society (AACE), and editor of
the "Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education." He received
his B.A. degree from the University of Cambridge and his Ph.D.
degree from the University of Leeds. His research interests lie in
the development of general design principles for intelligent
learning environments and specifically in the topic of student
modelling. He co-authored (with Tim O'Shea) the book "Learning and
Teaching with Computers: Artificial Intelligence in Education" and
edited the book "Artificial Intelligence and Human Learning".

    MORNING TUTORIALS--TUESDAY, DEC. 5 -- 9:30 AM-12:30 PM
    ------------------------------------------------------ 
  
T1: Student-Created Multimedia: 
Guidelines and Techniques for Teachers 
-------------------------------------- 
Michael D. Williams 
National Institute of Education, 
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore 
 
Objective: At the end of this workshop tutorial, the teachers will
be able to guide their students to create their own multimedia
presentations. This includes having the necessary technical and
software skills, as well as the process skills in planning and
organising a presentation. 
 
Participants: This workshop is intended for teachers who have a
basic exposure to multimedia, and wish to develop their skills in
order to help their students develop multimedia projects.
Prerequisite knowledge includes basic computer skills in either a
Macintosh (preferred) or Windows environment, and some familiarity
with multimedia concepts.  
 
Abstract: In many curricular areas it is quite common for students
to be expected to produce some type of project or report to
accompany the regular classroom teaching. With the increasing
popularisation of multimedia software, a new and different type of
final integrative project is possible for students to produce: a
multimedia presentation. With this type of project students are
expected to demonstrate that they have explored a complex topic by
communicating their findings to an audience, assembling a variety
of images (both still and motion), sounds, as well as text as part
of their "report." For example, perhaps a student (or group of
students) have been doing a research project on the topic of AIDS.
For their final project, students might produce a 15- or 20-minute
multimedia presentation which includes text and graphs, photo
images, audio narration and interviews, and perhaps even video
clips from the nightly news. The extended types of data allows
students a rich and creative source of communicative tools from
which to fashion their summary theses. 

The current workshop will provide teachers with information and
guidance in both areas of student-created multimedia projects: 1)
using the software, and 2) helping students plan their projects.
Basic skills in operating the software will be covered, including
how to handle various forms of multimedia data types. Additionally,
guidelines will be provided to assist teachers in helping students
to plan and organise their projects, including data gathering, data
organisation, creating a storyboard or prototype, specifying an
audience, and so on. 
 
About the instructor: Dr. Michael D. Williams will be conducting
the workshop. He is a lecturer in educational technology in the
National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University
in Singapore. He received his Ph.D. in Instructional Systems at the
University of Minnesota, USA, and has taught instructional design
and computer-based instruction at San Diego State University, the
University of Minnesota, and St. Thomas University, as well. He
has published several articles in the area of learner-control in
relation to computer-based instructional designs. Current research
interests focus on investigating the cross-cultural elements
impacting the use and effectiveness of computer-based instructional
technologies in schools. 
 
Enrollment Limit: 15 people 

T2: The Evolution of Instructional Planning 
------------------------------------------- 
Gordon I. McCalla 
University of Saskatchewan, Canada 
 
Abstract: Ideally, systems to support human learning should have
a role to play in helping learners to choose their next learning
activity. In traditional computer assisted instruction systems,
this role was dominant; that is, the system controlled the
interaction with the learner, choosing the instructional activity
and judging when, or even if, the learner was allowed to move on
to new activities. With the advent of intelligent tutoring systems,
however, it became desirable to provide more learner control to the
making of this choice. Techniques had to be found that allowed the
learner more freedom and gave the system the ability to act as a
coach and advisor, rather than an all-knowing controller of the
learner's destiny. It was from this desire for more flexible
control that the notion of instructional planning was born. 

In this tutorial, the evolution of instructional planning will be
traced from the days when systems were built on top of a rigid
course graph and learners were marched through the graph at the
discretion of the system, through to today's flexible plan-based
systems that are adaptable to the changing needs of the individual
learner. Particular systems will be presented as interesting
landmarks in the evolution of instructional planning, to illustrate
the move to individualized, flexible systems that support, rather
than control, learning. The tutorial will show that instructional
planning can be used more widely than just in so-called intelligent
tutoring systems, that, in fact, any environment to support
learning can be enhanced through the use of these techniques. The
tutorial will also show how these techniques may provide some
promise for the construction of a shell to support the construction
of intelligent, individualized learning environments. 
 
About the instructor: Gordon McCalla is Professor and Head in the
Department of Computer Science at the University of Saskatchewan
in Saskatoon, Canada. He is also a member of the Laboratory for
Advanced Research in Intelligent Educational Systems (ARIES). His
research spans a variety of artificial intelligence research
issues, as focused through investigations into systems that support
human learning. His specific interests lie in the areas of dynamic
instructional planning, tutorial dialogue, and learner modelling.
He has worked on instructional planning architectures, adaptive
approaches to individualized curriculum, innovative pedagogical
models for intelligent tutoring, immersion-based second language
learning, granularity-based and case-based cognitive diagnosis,
belief revision, reasoning  with stereotypes, qualitative student
modelling, and supporting learning at the mental model level.
Application systems have been built to support aspects of the
learning of programming languages (LISP and PL/C), simple device
operation, chess end games, English as a second language (travel
vocabulary, article usage), and large-scale software engineering
tools. Gordon McCalla is program co-chair for ICCE 95 and is
currently President-Elect of the Society for Artificial
Intelligence and Education (AACE).

    AFTERNOON TUTORIALS--TUESDAY, DEC. 5 -- 2:00 PM-5:00 PM
    -------------------------------------------------------

T3: Semantic Networking: A Cognitive Tool for Analyzing Content,
Acquiring Knowledge, and Evaluating Learning 
----------------------------------------------------------------
David H. Jonassen 
Pennsylvania State University, USA 
 
Abstract: Semantic networking tools represent a new class of
computer-supported tool that engages users in integration and
elaboration of knowledge. Programs such as SemNet (Fisher, 1990),
Learning Tool (Kozma, 1987), CMap (Novak), Inspiration, Pathfinder
Nets, and TextVision (Kommers, 1989) are powerful thinking tools
that provide visual and verbal screen tools to support the
development of cognitive maps. Cognitive maps are spatial
representations of semantic networks_the ideas and their
interrelationships that are stored in memory. Mind mapping programs
facilitate the acquisition and evaluation of structural knowledge
(Jonassen, Beissner, & Yacci, 1993), based on semantic network
theory, schema theory, cognitive structure, and conversation
theory. 
 
Applications: In the workshop, you will learn how to use mind
mapping tools for: 
- fostering cognitive learning strategies 
- assessing cognitive structures of learners 
- evaluating prior knowledge of learners 
- assessing misconceptions in learners 
- assessing learning from hypermedia/multimedia 
- performing content and task analysis 
- modeling content in hypermedia knowledge bases 
- rapid prototyping of instructional materials 
- developing instructional strategies, such as graphic organizers 

Activities: In this workshop, learners will develop cognitive maps
using different semantic networking software on Macintosh
computers. You will also use these tools for assessing learning and
knowledge structures, conducting content analysis for structuring
hypermedia knowledge bases and then converting your mind maps
automatically into hypermedia prototypes. We will discuss and
demonstrate a number of other applications of mind maps. Learners
will work on Macintoshes. 
 
About the Instructor: Dr. Jonassen is Professor of Instructional
Systems at the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Jonassen has
published 15 books and hundreds of articles, papers, and technical
reports on the applications of instructional systems and technology
to learning. His current research focuses on designing
constructivist learning environments, cognitive tools for learning,
knowledge representation methods, and individual differences and
learning. Dr. Jonassen has previously taught at the University of
Colorado and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and
consulted with businesses and institutions around the world. 
 
Enrollment Limit: 30 people 

T4: Social Learning Systems 
--------------------------- 
Tak-Wai Chan 
Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering,
National Central University, Taiwan 
 
Abstract: If most knowledge can be regarded as a common consensus
of a community, then learning should naturally take place in a
socio-cultural environment. Furthermore, if social context is a
catalyst of knowledge cultivation and motivation, then this element
of learning should be emphasized in most computer-assisted learning
systems. Social learning systems are emerging learning environments
that involve multiple agents, working at the same computer or
across connected machines. These agents are either computer
simulated or real human beings, taking various roles via different
protocols of learning activity, such as cooperation, competition,
peer tutoring, and so on. As alternatives to traditional one-to-one
tutoring, these systems are sometimes called or closely related to
collaborative, distributed, or distance learning systems. This
tutorial will provide a historical treatment and the theoretical
basis of these emerging technology supported learning environments,
then take a glance at their infrastructure. After that, we
introduce various social learning systems and discuss some of these
systems in detail. Following that we give a framework to classify
and, finally, discuss the design issues of social learning systems.
 
About the instructor: Dr. Tak-Wai Chan received his Ph.D in 1989
from Computer Science Department at the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign. His main research is the extension of his Ph.D
work on social learning systems, an area that recently draws
soaring interest in the development of computer-supported learning
environments. Dr. Chan also conducts research on intelligent
multimedia development environment and agent-oriented programming
language. Dr. Chan is an Associate Professor at the Department of
Computer Science and Information Engineering, National Central
University, Taiwan. He is an associate editor of International
Journal of Educational Telecommunications, the President of the
Asia-Pacific Chapter of the Association for the Advancement of
Computing in Education, and the vice-chair of IFIP Working Group
3.3. He is the coordinator of the area in intelligent
computer-assisted learning research in National Science Council of
Taiwan. He currently leads an inter-university research project
called LISA (Learning IS Active)on social learning systems.

Discover Singapore--Crossroads of the World! 
------------------------------------------- 
ICCE 95 will be held in the island republic of Singapore. Situated
at one of the most important crossroads of the world, Singapore is
truly a place where East and West come together. Here you will find
Chinese, Indian, and Malay communities living harmoniously
together, their long established cultures forming a unique backdrop
to a clean and modern garden city. English is spoken everywhere and
is the commonly used business language. 

Singapore is a thriving business and financial centre for Southeast
Asia. It has the world's busiest port, and its award winning
airport serves more than 60 major airlines. It has the tallest
hotel in the world (where ICCE '95 will be held!). Singapore has
an astonishing mix of old ethnic areas, modern offices and shopping
complexes. It has over 70 world class hotels, 18 lush golf courses,
and a host of tourist attractions. Few places on earth promise such
a delight for the palate, with gourmet cuisine from over 30
countries. 

Singapore's climate is warm and welcoming all year round, with
temperatures ranging from 30 degrees C (86 degrees F)/day to 23
degrees C (73 degrees F)/night.
