Expert Education-Using Knowledge Engineering to Teach Science
August 1990 (vol. 5 no. 4)
pp. 74-78

It is shown how knowledge engineering's pedagogical potential was exploited by engaging junior-high-school students in an expert system project at Trinity College. Serving as knowledge engineers, the students developed an expert system for identifying tree species. Project evaluation indicates that students mastered target knowledge. Also, they enjoyed taking a somewhat different approach to this standard junior-high-school subject. The success of the experiment supports the view that knowledge engineering should be considered as an innovative approach for teaching scientific subjects and improving independent learning skills.
