Two quick queries from me that I hope you can help me on:
Just listened to your podcast with Stephen Walsh. You mentioned the trap of sociological theories that underpin perhaps too much of the current debate and the need to research the psychology of learning and memory in the design of elearning. I've read Ruth Clark & Richard Mayer's "elearning and the science of instruction' but hoped you could steer me towards current research in the area.
My next query was to find out from you the company that exhibited gaming technology at the Learning Tehnology event that if you recall you mentioned in the closing debate. Costs had come down through computing power and better more intuitive software such that high end simulations and gaming type learning that used to cost around the 100 grand mark now could be purchased for around the 1000 quid mark.
Thanks. I've taken a look at your blog and the links. It all looks promising. Unfortunately I can only make the exhibition tomorrow morning, but I'll take a look at the Caspian stand and see if we can follow up in some other way.
