Improvement of Interactions in Interactive Environments and Knowledge Management from the Distributed Cognition Approach

Carmen Rearte, Hernan Castillo, Mabel Sosa

Abstract

In the field of Computer Supported Collaborative Work and Knowledge Management supported by computer, the cognitive and sociological dimensions can not be neglected in the accessing analysis of their designs. The material and social environment models the cognitive processes since the vast majority of them are mediated by interaction with other agents and other artefacts. Following these premises, in this work, a methodological framework for the analysis of the interaction between agents in a socio-technical system is applied, based on the approach of distributed cognition, oriented to the knowledge management, in an academic context at the upper university level. In particular, the analysis focuses on the interactions of cognitive agents, that occur during the cycle of knowledge management (activities of using, creating, distributing and sharing knowledge), and on how coordination, communication and collaboration is affected, which are key aspects of group work. From the problems detected in the interactions, changes are proposed in the design of the interface of the artefacts, where the interactions between agents in the cognitive system are reflected.
