2005 (English)In: Proceedings of the 4th decennial conference on Critical computing: between sense and sensibility : August 20-24, 2005 Aarhus, Denmark, New York, USA: ACM , 2005, 145-148 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We present the initial stages of a project in which we focuson participatory design methods to build information andcommunication technology support that stimulate knowledgesharing in a group of geographically distributedteachers. Teachers in general spend most of their time in aclassroom leaving few opportunities for social encountersand chats with their colleagues. The prototype we aredeveloping focuses on informality and playfulness, thatwould increase the social communication and thereby thecommunity feeling. In turn, this would ultimately increaselearning among the setting members.
