cognitive analysis     Front End Analysis: Cognitive Analysis of greenhouse experts

This product is a Cognitive analysis of stories about how to improve efficiency in greenhouses. The purpose of this task was to become familiar with the problems that greenhouse experts deal with.

NLS Competency 1 - The application of knowledge about technology and the learning sciences

Description: Conducting a cognitive analysis of greenhouse experts grew out of the need to design learning scenarios within the topic of plant growth. In order to conduct the analysis I interviewed several greenhouse experts that explained different problems they encountered through their experience in greenhouse management. Within the analysis of each expert story I determined and distinguished between the cognitive skills and the cognitive activities that are needed to make decisions and solve particular problems. When applicable, I gave suggestions about what technology should be used to support cognitive processes.
