The Knowledge-practices Laboratory (KP-Lab) project was aimed at facilitating innovative practices of working with knowledge (“knowledge practices”) in education and workplaces.
In KP-Lab a unifying view of human cognition based on an assumption that learning is not just individual knowledge acquisition or social interaction, but shared efforts of transforming ideas and social practices, i.e. knowledge-creation perspective was presented.
In the project a user environment was developed as a virtual shared space and set of tools that enabled collaborative knowledge practises around shared knowledge artefacts. During the projects design experiments and longitudinal studies in schools, polytechnics, universities, teacher training, and professional organizations were done. Extended pilots involved scaling up of emerging good practices across large number of students.
The KP-lab project was a large European multi-disciplinary project with over 20 partners.
