Teaching Social Informatics as a knowledge project

By Iver Jackewitz, Michael Janneck, Detlev Krause, Bernd Pape and Monique Strauss


Teaching Social Informatics poses the challenge of portraying future scenarios of technology development and use as well as criticizing them. We envision meeting this challenge by offering students an authentic, interdisciplinary educational framework, providing real-life, hands-on experiences. In this paper, we will first develop the idea of "knowledge projects" as a means to encourage such educational settings. Then we will focus on our efforts to develop a Webbased software system, named CommSy, designed to support communication and coordination in learning communities involved in knowledge projects
