Group Cognition: Computer Support for Building Collaborative Knowledge (Acting with Technology)

Buy
The promise of globally networked computers to usher in a new age of universal
learning and sharing of human knowledge remains a distant dream; the software and
social practices needed have yet to be conceived, designed, and adopted. To support
online collaboration, our technology and culture have to be reconfigured to meet a
bewildering set of constraints. Above all, this requires understanding how digital
technology can mediate human collaboration. The essays gathered in this volume
document one path of exploration of these challenges. They include efforts to design
software prototypes featuring specific collaboration-support functionality, to analyze
empirical instances of collaboration, and to theorize about the issues, phenomena,
and concepts involved today in supporting collaborative knowledge building.

The studies in this book grapple with the problem of how to increase opportunities
for effective collaborative working, learning, and acting through innovative uses of
computer technology. From a technological perspective, the possibilities seem
endless and effortless. The ubiquitous linking of computers in local and global networks
makes possible the sharing of thoughts by people who are separated spatially
or temporally. Brainstorming and critiquing of ideas can be conducted in many-tomany
interactions, without being confined by a sequential order imposed by the
inherent limitations of face-to-face meetings and classrooms. Negotiation of consensual
decisions and group knowledge can be conducted in new ways.

Sketching the Moon: An Astronomical Artist's Guide (The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series)
Sketching the Moon: An Astronomical Artist's Guide (The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series)

For anyone artistically inclined, observing the Moon and attempting to sketch or paint it can easily become a passion. The Moon presents a broad array of tone, texture, and form. Capturing this in a painting or sketch at the eyepiece of a telescope or even with binoculars develops observational skills, leaves a record of the observation, and...

The Exploit: A Theory of Networks (Electronic Mediations)
The Exploit: A Theory of Networks (Electronic Mediations)
It is our intention in this book to avoid the limits of academic writing in favor of a more experimental, speculative approach. To that end, we adopt a two - tier format. Throughout Part I, “Nodes,” you will find a number of condensed, italicized headers that are glued together with more standard prose. For quick immersion, we suggest...
