Details Technology-mediated social practices are widely implemented all over the world. People are able to find social practices according to their interest and awareness of issues through the web and to take part in it. There are some social practices conducted only through web meetings and other through combination face to face and web meetings. Basically, technology-mediated social practices are open up to people all over the world, and there is intercultural social practice.
However, there are persistent problems in designing a technology-mediated social practice, in spite of available theory-based and participatory design approach. How to develop a long-standing collaboration? how to develop co-configuration? What kinds of learning environment are needed for each member to learn from other and move towards a collectively created a new object? In answering these questions, we will research on social practice developed by supporters in Japan and Jordan for Syrian refugees from the perspective of the knowledge creation metaphor.
