Learning By Example: Designing and Developing Linked Data Application
PublisherAssociation for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE)
According to constructivist theory of learning, new knowledge is acquired on the basis of what is already known by learners. Learning to build Linked Data applications challenges traditional web technologists to think differently at every stage of the design and development process, starting from data modeling all the way to presenting data on the Linked Data web. Thus to understand and adopt an emerging and transformative web technology such as Linked Data, it is useful for web technologists to learn it in the context of prevalent web tools and technologies. This paper presents a comparative and illustrative example of designing and developing Linked Data application using the traditional and familiar LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL and PHP) web technology stack.
