Abstract:

This report summarizes progress made on the Graphical Instruction in LISP GIL intelligent tutoring system and the Graphical LISP Exploratory Environment GLEE discovery system for instructing programming skills. We describe the status of these computer systems and the experiments investigating the role of explanations in learning, in addition to the use of graphical representations in problem solving. We also describe the BATBook problem solving environment for the study of analogies in programming, as well as our studies of effective human tutors.
