Towards Life Long Learning: Three Models for Ubiquitous Applications
Towards Life Long Learning: Three Models for Ubiquitous Applications
In this paper, we present three experimental proof-of-concepts: First, we demonstrate a Ubiquitous Computing Framework (UCF), which is a network of interacting technologies that support humans ubiquitously. We then present practical work based on this UCF framework: TalkingPoints, which was originally developed for use at trading fairs in order to identify each participant and company via transponder and provide specific information during and after use. Finally, we propose GARFID, a concept for using advanced technologies for teaching young children. The main outcome of this research is that the concept of UCF raises a lot of possibilities, which can bring value and benefits for end-users. When one follows the Working-is-Learning paradigm, it can be seen that the implementation of this type of technology can support Life Long Learning, thereby providing evidence that technology can benefit everybody and make life easier.

Abstract

In this paper, we present three experimental proof-of-concepts: First, we demonstrate a Ubiquitous Computing Framework (UCF), which is a network of interacting technologies that support humans ubiquitously. We then present practical work based on this UCF framework: TalkingPoints, which was originally developed for use at trading fairs in order to identify each participant and company via transponder and provide specific information during and after use. Finally, we propose GARFID, a concept for using advanced technologies for teaching young children. The main outcome of this research is that the concept of UCF raises a lot of possibilities, which can bring value and benefits for end-users. When one follows the Working-is-Learning paradigm, it can be seen that the implementation of this type of technology can support Life Long Learning, thereby providing evidence that technology can benefit everybody and make life easier.
