Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

The emergence of complex technoscapes (Appadurai 1990) requires new pedagogical approaches to learning in digital contexts. However, there are profound and critical implications to making pedagogic decisions outside of knowledge production’s global context. We need to promote an educative culture that doesn’t contribute to the concentration of power and capital through knowledge. (Ricaurte 2016)

Wikipedia understands knowledge as commons (Hess & Ostrom 2011) and believes every single person is a potential contributor to enrich this common resource. Our challenge as a movement for the next years is to understand how to protect, thrive and share knowledge commons in the digital era. Because of this, we propose through a case study of two learning environments, Wikipedia and Google, to carry out an analysis that allows us to compare these two models of knowledge society materialization and pedagogical decisions. We chose these two learning environments because they constitute the most representative cases of two opposed paradigms in the Internet universe.

What will attendees take away from this session?

This session aims to contribute to the debate about the movement's vision for 2030. The attendees will gain a) a deep understanding of the main elements of the actual knowledge production system, b) a theoretical framework about knowledge commons, c) insight into learning environments and pedagogical perspectives, d) a practical case study of Wikipedia as part of the paradigm of the Open Knowledge Society.
