Learner interaction scripting language
The Learner Interaction Scripting Language (LISL) is a design language model for creating, managing, maintaining, and learning about learning environment design. It is complemented by a proof of concept, the Mash-up Personal Learning Environments (MUPPLE) platform.
2 The language
“Basically, we break down the learning context into situations which describe the physical and social environment of learners. In such a situation, a learner is engaged in a so-called activity which consists of actions and includes tools, artefacts, and other actors (facilitators or peers). In contrast to instructional design, these actions represent more prominently commands for self-organising the learning process.” (Wild et al. 2008: 6)
Copyright notice: The following example (figures) were copied from Wild et al. 2008
- Lines 1 to 7 define abstract actions
- publish, bookmark, all self-description and my list of self-descriptions are associated with a tool
- browse, self-description and selected self-description are defined with a tool
- Lines 8 and 9 define web-based tools (that can be later used in actions).
- Lines 10-13 define actions that make up the activity.
Daniel K. Schneider thinks that LISL/MUPPLE is quite a promising approach since it combines 2 features:
- Use of various on-line services, e.g. from the every increasing List of web 2.0 applications
- Integration of personal learning environment features (the learner can choose his own tool from some activities allow).
