Creating Meaningful Representations

Chris Stary and Edith Stary


Knowledge creation needs to rely on meaningful entities and representations, in particular in organizational settings. In this paper we report on exploring essential benefits for stakeholders and communities when applying major principles of Maria Montessori when articulating and communicating knowledge. Experienced benefits stem from stakeholders’ self determination and individualized design experiences. We motivate the embodiment of stakeholders into physically enriched and ambient knowledge management environments, and reveal insights from testing those ideas. The results of our work should guide the development of enriched knowledge-management environments.
