Educational Technology in Europe: Current Issues from the Learning Sciences Perspectives
Cress, Ulrike
Educational Technology, v52 n2 p14-17 Mar-Apr 2012
The article describes Web 2.0 as a revolutionary technology for actual learning. Using the example of the Wikipedia article about Fukushima, it discusses emergent processes of knowledge building and explains how they can be used for learning purposes. The examples make it obvious that it is the social system that makes groups work so effectively. This system is established through an artifact-centered collaboration, based on specific and self-given rules of knowledge building. This example of cooperation in Wikipedia can serve as a model also for formal education. (Contains 2 figures and 1 footnote.)
