A standardized digital database for input of archaeological excavation data . It will offer mechanisms for versatile sub-set searches. It can be used by instructors and learners as well as by professional archaeologists , researchers and museum outreach programs developers.





Objectives:
Combine existing archaeological print “databases” and on-going excavation recording to form an integrated comprehensive Multimedia Digital Database . Develop a standardized digital database for input of archaeological excavation data, provide for versatile sub-set searches. Encourage the development and upgrading of archaeological documentation practices.


Interface:
This module and the Social Modeller aim to to augment learners' scientific thought, which is a type of “ situated cognition ”. The “situations” of what is called “situated cognition” are the contexts in which scientists do their work. These situations describe how scientists discover knowledge and reach to conclusions.

We aim to reproduce a virtual reality ODL situated cognition !

Our users will be shepherded through the scientific process by their instructor or their peers (in case of collaborative work)!
