Beyond information foraging to ecologies of sense making

The LATEST (Learning Actively about Topics in Emerging Science and Technology) project combines psychological research with technology research in human-information interaction. LATEST involves a three-prong approach to understanding how expertise can be transferred to active learners. First, we are developing a model of expert information foragers. Second, based on this model, we are developing specific tools and interaction techniques to support more expert-like performance in active learners. A large part of the technical research will focus on Web-based social computing. Third, we developing a framework for the evaluation of social sensemaking tools to evaluate these technologies.
