Module by: Hardyna Vedder. E-mail the author

Summary: GOLD DUST is the first online book that works on the basis of the "Papillon" educational concept. It's a combination of grand adventure, magical effects and global learning. By linking the book with the Internet, teaching books are transformed into a huge dynamic ecosystem of knowledge and allows children to see our world in a global context.

Architecture of the educational concept "Papillon" The architecture of the educational concept is based on narration and interaction. The hybrid system combines the advantages of static and dynamic representation of contents. Level of narration Classes need pictures and stories which stay in mind to show brittle, abstract contents in a vivid and understandable way. Therefor virtual characters are included into the real learning process. They represent various attitudes and behaviour. Their contrary opinions include learners in the discussion and enable an educational entrance due to dialogue. The applied narrative structure is suitable for controverse dialogues. Level of interaction In the process of the narrative a thematic orientation will be recommended which will allow a 3-dimentional view on the topical focus through the merger of book and internet. It will also help to develop networked and multifunctional thinking. Seemingly diverse themes will be linked into a unique universe of knowledge and due to the level of narration knowledge will be produced multimedia-based. The narrative keeps the priority even when the learner follows his/her thematic interest. Delimination to conventional methods The learning concept presents a new way of conception of contents which differs fundamentally from traditional learning methods and the already known e-learning. It goes way beyond pure e-learning-usage and outlines a contrast towards the known click and pick. The space of knownledge will be flexible shaped by the virtual world. In todays e-learning-usage learners can often get forward only page by page or navigate at most via the fixed structure of the index. But exploratory learning, the discovery of the contents over its coherences fails because of missing links. To tie contextual links among and between study units offers in this concept the possibility to provide flexibly linked information due to an attractive concept. The advantage reaches to the emotional and motivating effects which are generated due to the identification with the characters, the exciting narrative level and the variety of themes of the active level. Lerning results and motivation will be achieved when knowledge coherences are exploit and this exploration can be repeated self-dependent by the learner. Tutorial Cool school with Papillon.
