Abstract: Knowledge convergence is at the heart of even very different approaches to collaborative learning. Recent empirical work revealed that knowledge convergence falls behind the expectations because only modest amount of shared knowledge could be found. We investigate knowledge awareness as a method to foster the emergence of knowledge convergence in an experimental study. Knowledge awareness provides collaborators with convergence-related external representations. This was found to support learners in tapping their convergence potential.
