Abstract

This paper discusses the use of a collaborative learning environment, specifically designed for computer science education. In particular, we investigate how students (may) meaningfully learn computer science and how web technologies (may) support them in this process. For a comprehensive view of the problem, different instructional theories are considered, as well as specific requirements for computer science education, driving the research to the adoption of semantic technologies and to the definition of a specific semantic-wiki-based framework. In this scenario, the authors present an on- going research project, named Semantic-WikiSUN, which aims to investigate innovative strategies for learning and teaching computer science in the context of higher education. It is based on the use of semantic-wiki to support the sharing and acquiring of knowledge in this specific knowledge domain, enabling the application of basic pedagogical principles.
