Abstract

Current and emerging technological advances in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) make it possible to develop interactive learning environments to support new ways of learning. Interactive learning environments (ILEs) are having an increasing role in teaching and learning and are likely to play an important role in the future (Wasson, 1997). In particular those tools that encourage and enhance discovery, creativity, thinking and expression are very much needed. The main point of our research focuses within the design of an ILE to support learning in complex domains for young learners. We argue that because children are learning for real life and preparing to solve real complex problems in the future, the complexity of the world should be taken into account much more and much earlier than usually happens.
