Advancing knowledge-building discourse through judgments of promising ideas

Authors: Bodong Chen, Marlene Scardamalia, Carl Bereiter

Abstract: We pay tribute to Naomi Miyake who was a founding member of the International Society of the Learning Sciences (ISLS) and played a leading role in the development of the field of learning sciences. Miyake distinguished the learning sciences from the cognitive sciences in terms of culture. As President of ISLS, she described learning scientists as eager “to learn from each different culture collaboratively” (ISLS 2007). Miyake exemplified this possibility in her research, developed it in her constructive-interaction perspective and followed it in her personal interactions.

Keywords: Promisingness, Knowledge building, Design-based research, Collaborative discourse
