Abstract: In this paper, we present a modelling approach to study learning processes. We introduce the process/pedagogy/tools model and shown how its assembly-line style of process modelling can be used to describe which pedagogical aspects and which tools that support which parts of a specific learning process. We also review the SECI knowledge creation theory of Nonaka and combine it with process modelling to arrive at a SECI process framework for the study and analysis of knowledge-creating learning processes. Finally, we show that the different SECI modes of knowledge conversion are empirically supported by pedagogical research.
