Electronic Workspace "Knowledge Forum"
Knowledge Forum is an electronic group workspace designed to support the process of knowledge building,
transforming ideas into community knowledge. Students learn about challenges their community faces within
the context of the subject matter being taught. These issues range from climate change to improving
to a community's residents through technology and open government. When students research issues with
those faced by their partners in other communities, local issues become global.
The Knowledge Forum platform accommodations any number of individuals and groups, where they can
information, launch collaborative investigations, create multi-media presentations, and build networks of
new ideas…together. The platform can be accessed through the Internet or through a local server, and is
available in multiple languages.
