Learning as 'Knowing': Towards Retaining and Visualizing Use in Virtual Settings

  title={Learning as 'Knowing': Towards Retaining and Visualizing Use in Virtual Settings},
  author={Demosthenes Akoumianakis},
  journal={J. Educ. Technol. Soc.},
The paper elaborates on the assumption that in modern organisations collaborative learning is an enacted capability that is more about ‘acting’ and co-engaging in shared practices. In such settings, virtual learning can be conceived as an emergent knowledge process with no pre-determined outcomes that occupies multiple online and offline constituencies. Then, retaining and visualizing the history of co-engagement in practice becomes a pre-requisite for effective e-learning environments. Using…

The findings showed that the participants successfully completed the composition task in the virtual environment, and that they demonstrated the use of metacognitive processes.
Social Ties in Video Sharing Services: Tactics for Excavating Virtual Settlements
It turns out that virtual excavations organized around cultural artifacts of practice can serve as 'gold mines' for business intelligence, providing a means for understanding, not only structural properties of 'social' technologies and the way in which they are appropriated, but also dynamic aspects of the enacted cyber-structures resulting from recurrent co-engagement in practice and online collaboration.
Internet of Things as Virtual Settlements: Insights from Excavating Social Media Sites
It turns out that virtual excavations organized around cultural artifacts of practice can provide valuable insight, not only into structural properties of 'social' technologies and the way in which they are appropriated, but also dynamic aspects of the enacted cyber-structures resulting from recurrent co-engagement and online collaboration.
Retaining and Exploring Digital Traces: Towards an Excavation of Virtual Settlements
It turns out that such virtual excavations, when organized and conducted carefully, can be of benefit to enterprises, service organizations and public sector institutions as much of this work can be done using the visualization.
Proposition and Organization of an Adaptive Learning Domain based on Fusion from the Web
This approach explores a new process of fusion in creation and in adaptation to learner’s profiles that doesn’t need much time and many efforts which can be taken and done by authors to create courses and finds direct way to Web resources which are needed.
Administering and Implementing the Singapore Mathematics Curriculum at a Learning Center.
This case study was conceptually based on constructivist pedagogical theory, where learning is constructed between the teacher and students and will support positive social change by increasing educators’ insight into how to administer and implement the SMC in order to improve student mathematics achievement.
E-learning Tool for Visualization of Shortest Paths Algorithms
The preliminary test results provide evidence of the usability of the e-learning tool and its potential to support students’ development of efficient mental models regarding shortest paths algorithms.


Designing Practice-Oriented Toolkits: A Retrospective Analysis of Communities, New Media and Social Practice
The Community-media-Practice grid is proposed as a guide for designing practiceoriented toolkits fostering a shared language for co-engagement in linguistic domains.
Understanding Networked Music Communities through a Practice-Lens: Virtual 'Tells' and Cultural Artifacts
Qualitative analysis of interview data makes useful inroads to understanding what members are actually doing in virtual space and how their actions, reactions and social encounters are manifested or revived through the musiccommunity’s virtual ‘tells’ or remains.
Practice-oriented toolkits for virtual communities of practice
The collaborative practices of virtual teams carrying out knowledge‐based work and the tools required/used to assemble “collective” artefacts are discussed and the proposed approach is validated in the context of an electronic villag...
Special Issue: Knowledge, Knowing, and Organizations: Knowing in Practice: Enacting a Collective Capability in Distributed Organizing
It is suggested that the competence to do global product development is both collective and distributed, grounded in the everyday practices of organizational members, and not a static embedded capability or stable disposition.
Electronic community factories: the model and its application in the tourism sector
The paper elaborates on the concept of the ECF and demonstrates its value through a pilot in regional tourism and constitutes an alternative model for community-based electronic commerce suitable for value-creating cross organization virtual communities of practice engaging in high quality product assembly in information based industries.
The Benefits of Synchronous Collaborative Information Visualization: Evidence from an Experimental Evaluation
The statistical analysis clearly shows that interactive visualization has a statistically significant, objective and positive impact on the outcomes of knowledge sharing, but that the subjects seem not to be aware of this.
A Design Theory for Systems That Support Emergent Knowledge Processes
This paper developed an IS design theory for EKP support systems, which makes the development process more tractable for developers by restricting the range of effective features and therange of effective development practices to a more manageable set.
The wealth of networks: how social production transforms markets and freedom
In this comprehensive social theory of the Internet and the networked information economy, Benkler describes how patterns of information, knowledge, and cultural production are changing--and shows that the way information and knowledge are made available can either limit or enlarge the ways people can create and express themselves.
Exploring New Perspectives in Network Music Performance: The DIAMOUSES Framework
DIAMOUSES is described in terms of technicalorientation and validation, as well as in Terms of user experience as revealed through a series of em-pirical studies, which provide useful insights into a variety of research questions on NMP and into a number of issues pending further attention.
