This article presents a framework model that defines knowledge building as a co-evolution of cognitive and social systems. [...] Key Method For this purpose, three different technologies are introduced as examples: social-tagging systems, pattern-based task-management systems, and wikis. These examples have been chosen to demonstrate that knowledge building can occur with respect to both declarative and procedural knowledge. The differences and similarities between these technologies, as far as their potential…Expand
Using Wikis for Learning and Knowledge Building: Results of an Experimental Study
TLDR
The co-evolution model that attempts to examine processes of learning and knowledge building by working on wikis is described and an experimental study aimed at testing some predictions of this model empirically support the assumption that accommodative knowledge building and a development of conceptual knowledge takes place particularly when there is incongruity at a medium level.
A systems theoretical approach to online knowledge building
TLDR
The ways in which individuals interact with the collective as a whole are looked into, and the respective modes of operation of psychic and social systems will be examined, and "structural coupling” between these systems described.
Identifying knowledge-building phases in computer-supported collaborative learning: A review
Collaborative learning is viewed as a social process that incorporates multiple phases of knowledge building (KB). These steps were illustrated in several collaborative knowledge-building models that
Innovation in a Geographically Distributed Environment: Interrelationship of Organisational Learning and Knowledge Management
The factors that facilitate the interrelationship of organisational learning (OL), knowledge management (KM) and innovation in a distributed organisation are illustrated in this study. While the
Collaborative knowledge building with wikis: The impact of redundancy and polarity
TLDR
The results supported the hypotheses that a medium level of redundancy and a high level of polarity foster external accommodation processes and found that individual learning was influenced by the degree of external assimilation.
The Interrelations of Individual Learning and Collective Knowledge Construction: A Cognitive-Systemic Framework
TLDR
This chapter presents a “co-evolution model” that aims to integrate processes of individual learning and collective knowledge construction into a cognitive-systemic framework and points out that this framework provides a descriptive, rather than a normative view of learning.
Deciding to use an enterprise wiki: the role of social institutions and scripts
Wikis have significant potential to improve knowledge work and information sharing within organisations. But in spite of their usability and simplicity, adoption experience is varied. In this
How wikis can be used to manage knowledge in SMEs
Companies are exploring new ways of knowledge sharing, collaboration and communication with employees, partners and customers, using social media tools like wikis, blogs or social networks. This
A Knowledge Appropriation Model to Connect Scaffolded Learning and Knowledge Maturation in Workplace Learning Settings
When organizations create new knowledge and work practices as a reaction to challenges they face, they often have difficulty to adopt these new practices “on the ground”. One of the reasons is that
Making Use of Collective Knowledge - A Cognitive Approach

TLDR
An overview of several experimental studies that induce situations where individual and collective knowledge contradict each other are given and the results show that in such situations incidental learning takes place, and users’ individual conceptual knowledge assimilates to the collective conceptual knowledge.

A theoretical framework of collaborative knowledge building with wikis: a systemic and cognitive perspective
TLDR
This paper presents a theoretical framework for describing and understanding the processes which lead to collaborative knowledge building which borrows from the systemic approach of Luhmann as well as from Piaget's theory of equilibration.
A systemic and cognitive view on collaborative knowledge building with wikis
TLDR
A theoretical framework for describing how learning and collaborative knowledge building take place in a wiki is presented, which borrows from the systemic approach of Luhmann as well as from Piaget's theory of equilibration and combines these approaches.
Learning and knowledge building with wikis: the impact of incongruity between people's knowledge and a wiki's information
TLDR
A theoretical model of collaborative knowledge building with wikis which was recently introduced by Cress and Kimmerle is empirically tested, showing that a medium level of incongruity between people's knowledge and a wiki's information supports individual learning.
Wiki-supported learning and knowledge building: effects of incongruity between knowledge and information
TLDR
A empirical test of a theoretical model of knowledge building with wikis confirmed that a medium level of incongruity between an individual's knowledge and the information that a wiki contains will best support learning.

TLDR
This article investigates knowledge acquisition bottlenecks and proposes the use of collaborative, conversational knowledge management to remove them and demonstrates the opportunity for more effective knowledge acquisition through the application of the principles of Bazaar style, open-source development.
Knowledge transfer by sharing task templates: two approaches and their psychological requirements
TLDR
This paper considers two paradigms of process-aware information systems (PAIS) that are used to share knowledge about planning and executing tasks and compares the two approaches and assess which one is more appropriate with respect to motivation.
Integration of Communities into Process-Oriented Structures
