Abstract

The ATG LearningCommunitiesLaboratory An Overview N. Rao Machiraju The Learning Communities Lab (LCL) came into being in July, 1996 within the Advanced Technology Group at Apple, Much of the work reported in the papers that follow took place between July 1996 and October 1997. Currently, the research work in the learning space is driven by Apple's Learning Technology Group, now within Apple Education (http:// www.apple.com/education/). The focus of Apple's Learning Community Lab was on distributed learning and learner-centered design tools. Distributed learning enables learning for anyone, anytime, anyplace. It's the cornerstone of an integrated framework of technology and learning experiences that work together to extend the reach of learning from beyond the traditional classroom to: the home, the community, libraries of schools, colleges and nations; to research labs in universities, industry, government; to the work place, to local communities and to communities around the world. LCL was a design and engineering group that included a number of engineers, computer scientists and social scientists, with expertise in community cultures and learning environments and in the evaluation and design of learning materials. The work of the Learning Communities Lab focused on the 'three Cs': conversations, contexts and communities- elements that
