The Meno project came up with a framework for narrative guidance and narrative
construction in the context of non-adaptive systems. As part of the HOMEWORK
project we are exploring the extension of this framework in order to enable us to create
adaptive systems that can help teachers offer learners a coherent experience across
artifacts and contexts. We are attempting to ensure that the framework that underpins
the HOMEWORK project helps designers, teachers and learners to work together
effectively. Lesson planning is an important activity for a teacher, which helps them
link different educational resources into a coherent narrative. We discuss the evolution
of the current Non Linear Interactive Narrative Framework (NINF) and, in particular,
our continuing work with teachers as we try to increase our understanding about how
best to design a system to support them in their lesson planning activities. Here our
emphasis is upon the extension of the Meno framework to the design of a system that
can be adaptive to the needs of individual learners and groups.
