    Former colleague

    Vitae

    Michael Veith was a student worker for Prof. Dr. Volker Wulf at the University of Siegen in the field of cooperations- and media systems from 01/2004 to 03/2006. Since 2006 he is employed at the Institute for Information Systems and New Media as a ph.d student. There he works on topics related to social and organizational changes in society which are stimulated by the use of novel information and communication technologies.

    He studied english linguistics, psychologies and informatics (Magister) at der the University of Siegen. His master thesis dealt especially with the question of how ethnic minorities in Germany may be better integrated into society by the help of computer supported cooperative project work. These projects at an elementary school are furthermore realized by mixing generations (parents with children) as well as socio-cultural backgrounds.

    Scientifically he works in two projecs: First in the project *WIN *(knowledge management in heterogeneously nets) in Frankfurt. In this project the ‘Fachverband Landtechnik’ in the VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbauer – German Engineering Federation) is exemplarily researched, how knowledge can be technicaly interconected and make transparent for participants. This research is done in focus of a better service for the involked members/firms.

    Secondly in the project *come_IN *in the Marienschool in the old town of Bonn. In this School there is a Computer Club for primary pupils and the parents of them. Especially there are turks in the old town adressed, to cooperate in the club and realise together an intercultural project at the computer. On this way barriers between the german and the turkish citizens should be reduced and a common identity of the citizens in the old town of Bonn can be build (immigrant (sub-)cultures).

      In a long term case study, we have analyzed learning practices in\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$na German Computer Club House (CCH) setting. Observing children and\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$ntheir parents creating artifacts with construction kits, we found\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nthat they had problems in maintaining the flow of their project work\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nover time. Therefore, we develop concepts for a project management\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$ntool which support CCH settings to scaffold their growing information\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nspace in terms of artifact re-use and expertise development over\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$ntime. Scaffolding in this regard is understood to support collaborative\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nprocesses in communities of end-user development.

      IN IADIS International Journal on WWW/Internet, Vol. 5, Pages: 100–112
      [BibTeX] [Abstract]

      Former immigrant workers from Turkey have settled down in Germany.\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nThey have established communities within German cities. However,\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nthey are confronted with unequal opportunities. Differences in access\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nand appropriation of computer technology may amplify the gap between\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nthe German Turkish minority and the mainstream society. We have tackled\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nthis problem by creating an intercultural computer club. This paper\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$npresents results from this action research project in which we engaged\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nchildren of an elementary school and their parents. We conclude that\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nthe application of ICT in the club has to be analyzed carefully with\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nregard to the differing needs of its members. When applying ICT in\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$norder to produce artifacts in cross-cultural project teams, specific\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nroles emerge, which are mainly defined by sub-group affiliation.\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nSince Turkish women face serious challenges in finding their socio-cultural\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$nidentity, we have extended the club’s concept by adding a women’s\${\textbackslash}textbackslashbackslash\$ngroup.

      The integration of immigrants is a big challenge for western societies. In this paper we describe how to bridge between ethnically defined communities by means of computer-supported project work. Our approach is grounded in socio-cultural theories of learning, especially Community of Practice (CoP). To evaluate our approach, we have built up a computer club in a multi cultural neighbourhood of the city of Bonn. Parents and children of mainly German and Turkish origin work jointly to create multimedia artefacts. These artefacts represent aspects of the neighbourhood’s recent history. The paper describes the project and its theoretical background. We also provide empirical findings to evaluate our approach.
