A Cognitive Science perspective for learning how to design meaningful user experiences and human-centered technology
This paper reviews literature in cognitive science, human-computer interaction (HCI) and natural-language processing (NLP) to consider how analogical reasoning (AR) could help inform the design of communication and learning technologies, as well as online communities and digital platforms. First, analogical reasoning (AR) is defined, and use-cases of AR in the computing sciences are presented. The concept of schema is introduced, along with use-cases in computing. Finally, recommendations are offered for future work on using analogical reasoning and schema methods in the computing sciences.
