European learning GRID infrastructure

Objective

The European Learning Grid Infrastructure (E-LeGI) project has the ambitious goal to develop software technologies for effective human learning. With the E-LeGI project we will promote and support a learning paradigm shift. A new paradigm focused on knowledge construction using experiential based and collaborative learning approaches in a contextualised, personalised and ubiquitous way will replace the current information transfer paradigm focused on content and on the key authoritative figure of the teacher who provides information.

We have chosen a synergic approach, sometimes called human centred design, to replace the classical, applicative approach to learning. With consideration of humans at the centre, learning is clearly a social, constructive phenomenon. It occurs as a side effect of interactions, conversations and enhanced presence in dynamic Virtual Communities: experimental research concepts integrating new powerful developments of services in the Semantic GRID, the leading edge of currently available and future ICT technologies, with highly innovative and powerfully significant scenarios of human learning.

The E-LeGI project has three main objectives:
- To study and define new models of human centred learning enabling ubiquitous and collaborative learning, merging experiential, personalised, and contextualised approaches.
- To study, design and implement an advanced service-oriented Grid based software architecture for learning. This will allow us to access and integrate different technologies, resources and contents that are needed in order to realise the new paradigm according to Objective 1.
- Within the context of a single Integrated Project, we will research, develop, deploy, validate, and evaluate the GRID based software architecture for learning and the human centred approaches, through the use of SEES (Service Elicitation and Exploitation Scenarios), pilots and demonstrators.
