Dettori G., Morselli F. Accessing knowledge through narrative context. In: WCC 2008 - IFIP 20th World Computer Congress 2008: Learning to Live in the Knowledge Society (Milano, Italy, 7-10 September 2008). Proceedings, pp. 253 - 260. M. Kendall, B. Samways (eds.). Springer, 2008.
In this paper we discuss how narrative may contribute to create meaningful learning contexts. Starting from a socio-constructivist and situated learning perspective, we acknowledge the crucial role of context in accessing knowledge. Then we point out the potential of narrative in education and discuss the positive role it can play in the creation of meaningful learning contexts. To this end, we focus on different examples of narrative contexts within technology-enhanced learning environments, drawn from the literature. We analyze what kind of contexts raise from different ways to set up narrative activities. Our study points out that narrative can be a powerful tool for the creation of a variety of contexts suitable for different learning situations, by stimulating learners' direct involvement and offering a concrete starting point for reflection.
