2008 (English)In: Proceedings of the Tenth International Conference ETHICOMP 2008: "Living, Working And Learning Beyond Technology", Mantua, Italy: University of Pavia , 2008, 503-510 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Micro worlds can be constructed to assess and promote the ethical competence of users. However, the theoretical basis has to be on psychological problem solving and decision making processes. In this paper we discuss the conditions necessary for a micro world as a method to measure and train ethical competence. Two things in particular are interesting to investigate: 1) To determine which parameters to measure, that indicate autonomous decision making, and 2) to establish a model for interpreting the proceedings and the subject’s interaction with the simulation as a representation of the psychological problem solving and decision making process.
