Description & Coverage
Description:

In today's society, the quantity of information available to learners is so vast that new strategies of information processing and exchange must be continually developed and improved.

E-Collaborative Knowledge Construction: Learning from Computer-Supported and Virtual Environments explores the construction of beneficial e-collaborative knowledge environments from four vital perspectives: educational, psychological, organizational, and technical. It offers several scenarios where the implementation of e-collaborative knowledge construction is necessary and then not only presents methods for facilitating e-collaborative knowledge construction, but also provides methods for assessing its results. This exciting new publication is a must-have for academics, researchers, and professionals who dare to discover new innovations!

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Collaborative Scientific Conceptual Change
  • Community of Research
  • Distributive Cognitive Processing
  • E-Collaborative Knowledge Construction
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Human-Human Interaction
  • Scripting Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning
  • Social Web
  • Transactive Memory
  • Virtual Learning Environments
Reviews and Testimonials

E-collaborative knowledge construction describes an interactive process of collaborative knowledge work for the collaboration partners. The approaches and environments described in this book are therefore not restricted to the pure exchange of knowledge—learners also have the opportunity to negotiate on a collaborative knowledge base.

Editor/Author Biographies
Bernhard Ertl is senior researcher at the Universität der Bundeswehr München. He has realized several research projects in the context of video-mediated learning, Internet collaboration and online-courses with a particular focus on the support of collaborative knowledge construction by the methods of scripts and structured communication interfaces. A further focus of research is the issue of gender in computer and science teaching which includes projects with national and EU funding. Bernhard Ertl earned his Diploma in computer science from the Ludwig Maximilian University Munich in 1998 and his Doctorate in education 2003. From 1999 to 2006, he was researcher at the Department Psychology of Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and worked with Professor Heinz Mandl in DFG-funded research projects focusing on collaborative learning, e.g. "Collaborative Learning in Graphics-enhanced Tele-learning Environments" and "Collaborative Knowledge Construction in Desktop Videoconferencing."
