New participants in an Enabling environment may not immediately be able to do what it enables. The typical solution is an abstract introductory experience: explanatory guides, onboarding classes, background readings, etc. These supports can help new participants eventually access what an environment enables, but they’re not ideal: Enabling environments focus on doing what’s enabled.
It’s often possible to improve an environment’s design to support more immediate participation (e.g. with Cognitive scaffolding). One powerful design approach: Enacted experiences can bootstrap active participation in enabling environments.
