LC0a Recent, Possible & Imagined Projects

The Helix of Mind Arising: intimations of physical reality by reflexive mind surfing on limited information from instantiations with limited communication.
THIS is the end with which I began, a horizon still receding.

Since a large portion of the video material of the first three years of the Infant Peggy Study has now been uploaded,
the site is open to others for collaborative exploration and interpretation of contents.
Accomplishments lag hopes and plans in the Builder post in the right sidebar.

These texts reflect ideas, efforts and publications of recent years:

LC0aR9 NLCSA Dataset Description: was published in a special issue on datasets in the British Journal of Educational Technology.

LC0aR8 Four Years of Progress with NLCSA: submitted as a “poster” demonstration for the
Jean Piaget Society Conference of 2015, in Toronto, ON, CA. was rejected, but still is a good summary.

LC0aR7 The Selfridge Challenge: how can we represent the world so learning is easy? NAY.
see video Selfridge at Purdue, 1989, clips d-g.

LC0aR6 Getting Intelligence into the Minds of People, A paper inspired by Seymour Papert,
published as an invited article in the Online Journal Learning Landscapes on July 15, 2013.

LC0aR5 Thinkable Models and Educational Games, Opening Keynote Presentation
at Edutainment 2011, in Taipei, Taiwan
The content of this presentation is reprised in “An interview with Robert Lawler,” published in the
British Journal of Educational Technology, January, 2013, Vol. 44, No.1.

LC0aR4 With Heart Upon My Sleeve, for Seymour A. Papert
a paper presented at Constructionism 2010, in Paris

LC0aR3 Explorations in Experimental Epistemology, for Oliver Gordon Selfridge
a paper presented at Constructionism 2010, in Paris
This presentation was a disaster. The expected internet and presentational supports were not available. Despite THAT, the ideas presented were especially appropriate in a tribute to Selfridge and Papert, Minsky’s two primary colleagues in his long career. Expect to see these ideas re-appear later, God willing. The title I foresee is “the helix of mind arising.” Till then, I urge consideration of the text beginning at “Escaping from Particularity” as my deepest and best integration of ideas on the evolution of reflexive mind in human beings.

Final Proposals for Research Funding

LC0aR2 Learning English through Directing Animation Theater (summary only)
This abstract sketches the thrust of a 2008 SBIR proposal to the NSF. Ideas from this unfunded
proposal have been absorbed into “Thinkable Models and Educational Games,” above.

LC0aR1 Sharing War Stories with Reflective, Commonsense Knowledge Bases (summary only)
This abstract sketches the thrust of a 2007 proposal to the Army Research Institute.
