Abstrakti

The paper introduces the Knowledge Practices Environment (KPE), and a learning approach called trialogical learning. The virtual environment (KPE) is aimed at providing some solutions to the challenges arising from the constant flow of new tools, use trends, services and terminologies, which question the “oldish” learning practices, and create confusion amongst teachers and students. The trialogical learning suggest practices that support learning in the new and emerging environments by emphasizing students learning activities, which are organized around shared “objects”. KPE is designed to support trialogical learning and collaborative knowledge creation processes. Both KPE and trialogical learning have been developed in a large EU-funded KP-Lab project (2006-2011). KPE has been created to provide an integrated system and tools for supporting collaborative knowledge creation; i.e., emphasis is placed on collaborative, iterative and sustained efforts of creating artifacts and/or knowledge practices and processes together, and the role of the tool is to mediate the process smoothly and flexibly. Knowledge creation processes refer to a broader class of purposive and situated activities of a learning community (underlining e.g., object-orientedness) aiming at developing knowledge artifacts and the trialogical approach. This means that KPE is designed to support versatile ways of working with shared “objects”.
