Co-creation of Knowledge in Technology-Enhanced Communities of Learning

information society

The aim of this project is to develop valid, reliable and efficient measures for assessing the development of students’ epistemic reasoning.

Learning in a networked society necessitates a shift in learners’ roles from passive consumers of information to active and critical producers of knowledge.

Following the tradition that began with the establishment of our I-CORE, the LINKS Community meets again for a fascinating encounter of two consecutive days during which lectures, workshops and meetings will be held. 

The research group functions as a community net lab focusing on the ways that clearly defined (primordial) communities (re)form social boundaries through the use of new media (i.e. the Internet, mobile communication) and knowledge that is constructed online.

Abstract: "All you can eat", free information has become the norm on the Web. Our hunger for free information together with technological affordances is thefuel which eventually brings about market failure. What are the merits and implications of these phenomena? Who in his/her right mind would be willing to pay for information? My talk will cover some of the basic principles in information economics and discuss the unusual mix of the social and economic worlds. While economics is mostly concerned with the suppliers' side, the second part of the talk will be about the consumers' side of the information economy. I will describe my research in a new area which I call behavioral information economics.

Dr. Daphne Raban research group:

Our research group studies motivations to learn and share knowledge, mechanisms of knowledge diffusion in networks, perceived value of learning materials and the relation between personal epistemology and the perceived value of information.
