Abstract

In Japan, the "Period of Integrated Study" program began in elementary and secondary education in 2002. The "Period of Integrated Study" program emphasizes cultivating the ability to solve various problems in society. Most goals of this program involve meta-ability, which cannot be fully learned by traditional Japanese instructional methods. For this reason, it is necessary and important to provide instructors with a powerful help system that can locate and provide access to a variety of useful information resources. To this end, we have proposed a framework that reconstructs the resources according to various viewpoints based on Semantic Web technology. Further, we proposed a Goal Transition Model to show a skeleton of the transition of instructional goals based on ontologies and built a system that provides teachers with lesson plans effectively by applying this Model. In this paper, we describe support functions of this system and report results of an experiment carried out for evaluation of the functions.
