On "Learnable" Representations of Knowledge: A Meaning for the Computational Metaphor

Unknown author (1977-09-01)

The computational metaphor which proposes the comparison of processes of mind to realizable or imaginable computer activities suggests a number of educational concerns. This paper discusses some of those concerns including procedural modes of knowledge representation and control knowledge ??owing what to do. I develop a collection of heuristics for education researchers and curriculum developers which are intended to address the issues raised. Finally, an extensive section of examples is given to concretize those heuristics.
