A Card Based Metaphor for Organising Pervasive Educational Experiences.
In, Proceedings of the 3rd IEEE International Workshop on PervasivE Learning, March 19-23,
IEEE Computer Society, .
This paper looks at the card metaphor used successfully in the Equator Ambient Wood and Chawton House projects to structure and author content as part of innovative school field trips using wireless and ubiquitous technologies. The framework provided by the metaphor is laid out and observations made as to how it has been used by domain experts in creating educational experiences. The trade-off between formalisation and restricting pedagogy is examined and key benefits that the metaphor provides are given.
