The Construction of Causal Schemes: A Cognitive Analysis with a Dialectical Point Documents
Andrea A. diSessa
This paper sketches a careful analysis of an exceptional classroom event where students develop, without explicit instruction, a model equivalent to Newton's thermal law as a composition of intuitive knowledge elements. Lessons about how social (cultural, discursive, situated, etc.) and cognitive perspectives may interact are put forward.
