A persistent infrastructure for augmented field trips

Weal, Mark J., Cruickshank, Don G., Michaelides, Danius T., Millard, David E., De Roure, David C., Halloran, John, Hornecker, Eva and Fitzpatrick, Geraldine (2006) A persistent infrastructure for augmented field trips At World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia and Telecommunications, Ed-Media 06, United States.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper describes an approach to the provision of pervasive field trips where a persistent infrastructure is provided, upon which teachers can easily create novel pervasive experiences for children. The physical infrastructure is briefly described along with the underlying information infrastructure, which enables the tools for authoring the content and designing the orchestration of the experience to be placed in the hands of teachers. A literacy experience and initial trials of the system are discussed, conclusions drawn, and future directions outlined.
