1)What is knowledge building(KF)?

2)How to apply KF into your teaching subject?

3)What is the advantages and limitation in KF?

Shouldn't we distinguish between Knowledge building (KB) and Knowledge Forum (KF): the former is pedagogy, whereas the latter is a software environment? Yasya 20:51, 3 April 2006 (UTC)


If you read the knowledge building principles proposed in "Collective Cognitive Responsibility" you will see how certain socio-cognitive dynamics are made possible by particular technological features

For example:

EPISTEMIC AGENCY


Socio-cognitive dynamics: Participants set forth their ideas and negotiate a fit between personal ideas and ideas of others, using contrasts to spark and sustain knowledge advancement rather than depending on others to chart that course for them. They deal with problems of goals, motivation, evaluation, and long-range planning that are normally left to teachers or managers.


Technological dynamics: Knowledge Forum provides support for theory construction and refinement and for viewing ideas in the context of related but different ideas. Scaffolds for high level knowledge processes are reflected in the use and variety of epistemological terms (such as conjecture, wonder, hypothesize, and so forth), and in the corresponding growth in conceptual content.

I'm interested in the origin of the term 'improvable objects' - which is often attributed to Bereiter, but I can't track down Bereiter ever using it. In this article, it's mentioned in the descriptions of 12 principles of knowledge building. I've just been right the way through 'Education and mind in the knowledge age' and I can't find those 12 principles in the content, in the index, in list form or in chapter or section headings. Are they a personal interpretation of the whole book - or am I missing them in the book? FPhlox (talk) 15:37, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Follow up: I've just checked 'Education and mind in the knowledge age' on Google books, and I see that these 12 points are not listed as such in the book - so perhaps the list should make clearer that it's not a list produced by Bereiter, but it's an interpretation of the book by one of the page authors?

Then you need to change it to the book, interpretation is not citable --Snowded (talk) 17:19, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
These 12 Knowledge Building principles were published in one of Scardamalia's papers. Scardamalia, M. (2002) Collective cognitive responsibility for the advancement of knowledge. In B. Smith (Ed.), Liberal education in a knowledge society (pp.67-98). Chicago: Open Court. (talk) 21:30, 19 October 2010 (ET) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.33.253.185 (talk)

When was it defined?Edit

Was the 2002 (Scardamalia and Bereiter) article the first to define knowledge building? If not, when was it defined/coined? I think it seems unlikely that such a term (maybe a different one covering about the same) was not introduced until 2003. If it was introduced in 2002, that should be added to the introduction.
