Creative Environments follows up on the book Creative Space, by the same authors, who serve this time as editors. The first part further develops models of knowledge creation, in particular the Triple Helix of normal academic knowledge creation and a new, integrated model of normal academic and organizational knowledge creation, called Nanatsudaki (seven waterfalls) Model. Also presented are intelligence tools, statistics for support of creativity and more.

This book presents perspectives on the knowledge creation metaphor of learning, and elaborates the trialogical approach to learning. The knowledge creation metaphor differs from both the acquisition and the participation metaphors. In a nutshell trialogical approaches seek to engage learners in joint work with shared objects and artefacts mediated by collaboration technology. The theoretical underpinnings stem from different origins, including Bereiter and Scardamalia’s theory on knowledge building and Engeström’s activity theory. The authors in this collection introduce key concepts and techniques, explain tools designed and developed to support knowledge creation, and report results from case studies in specific contexts. The book chapters integrate theoretical, methodological, empirical and technological research, to elaborate the empirical findings and to explain the design of the knowledge creation tools. The target audiences for this book are researchers, teachers and Human Resource developers interested in new perspectives on collaborative learning, technology-mediated knowledge creation, and applications of this in their own settings, for higher education, teacher training and workplace learning. The book is the result of joint efforts from many contributors who took part in the Knowledge-practices Laboratory (KP-Lab) project (2006-2011) supported by EU FP6.

Knowledge science is an emerging discipline resulting from the demands of a knowledge-based economy and information revolution. Explaining how to improve our knowledge-based society, Knowledge Science: Modeling the Knowledge Creation Process addresses problems in collecting, synthesizing, coordinating, and creating knowledge. The book introduces several key concepts in knowledge science: Knowledge technology, which encompasses classification, representation, modeling, identification, acquisition, searching, organization, storage, conversion, and dissemination Knowledge management, which covers three different yet related areas (knowledge assets, knowing processes, knower relations) Knowledge discovery and data mining, which combine databases, statistics, machine learning, and related areas to discover and extract valuable knowledge from large volumes of data Knowledge synthesis, knowledge justification, and knowledge construction, which are important in solving real-life problems Specialists in decision science, artificial intelligence, systems engineering, behavioral science, and management science, the book’s contributors present their own original ideas, including an Oriental systems philosophy, a new episteme in the knowledge-based society, and a theory of knowledge construction. They emphasize the importance of systemic thinking for developing a better society in the current knowledge-based era.

Modern information and communication technologies, together with a cultural upheaval within the research community, have profoundly changed research in nearly every aspect. Ranging from sharing and discussing ideas in social networks for scientists to new collaborative environments and novel publication formats, knowledge creation and dissemination as we know it is experiencing a vigorous shift towards increased transparency, collaboration and accessibility. Many assume that research workflows will change more in the next 20 years than they have in the last 200. This book provides researchers, decision makers, and other scientific stakeholders with a snapshot of the basics, the tools, and the underlying visions that drive the current scientific (r)evolution, often called ‘Open Science.’

Bill Starbuck reflects on the challenges associated with social science research - the limits of rationality, the lack of reliability in many research findings and the social shaping of research agendas, cultures and judgements. He discusses some of his own research projects and various methodological debates.
