Activity in Context - Planning to Keep Learners 'in the Zone' for Scenario-based Mixed-Initiative Training in Virtual Worlds
This paper explores how to provide support in a training-orientated "I-Zone" augmented by intelligent systems technology - with the aim of providing a virtual space for intelligent scenario-based learning. The approach is to: 1) constrain the world situation and activities possible, 2) select relevant tasks and events , 3) inject events to situation to keep learners 'in the zone', 4) induce appropriate learner 'activity in context'.
