Artists live in a community
What is a Citilab?
The laboratory of the community
Evolution A: Open networks, open source,open innovation-1991. “Internet is for everyone” ISOC.-2000. Web 2.0, Wikis, social netwoks-2001. Innocentive, crowdsourcing.-2005. “Democratizing innovation”....-2006. Corelabs project: Open Living labs.
Evolution B: Telecenters, community accessnetworks, citilabs-80s Freenets-90s Community networks, telecenters, digital literacy,-2000s. “Digital divide”-2010, Social networksBeyond..living labs, citilabs, innovation literacy
Citilab: The contextCornellá de Llobregat Working class city in metropolitan area of BCN 86.519 inhabitants,(INE 2009) . De-industrialization. Increasing service economy Elder population: 17,39% (BCN, 20,43%) Secondary educational centers (5). No university or tertiary center (BCN, 8) People with university degree, 9,31%. (BCN, 20,17%) Immigrants, 17,26% (BCN, 17,54%) http://www.diba.cat/hg2/menu_ind.asp
The current Citilab community- Two ongoing fieldworks studies, Columbia Univ. and Universitat de Barcelona (J. Colobrans).-In april 2010 Citilab has 4.500 registered members.-85% of them coming from Cornella and neighbors cities.-20% born in 42 countries outside Spain.-24% of members have tertiary education (vs. 9% in Cornella)-The basic question Citilab staff ask to the newcomer is: “What do you want to do? If you know how to do it , you can do it here by yourself. If not, we can help you. Sharing is our basic way of doing”.
Priority to local needs: bottom up approach.-Discovering local needs and opportunities. Ethnografic fieldwork.-Connecting local needs with global issues...or not yet.-From innovative topics to research ones.Examples:Users Project Research topic-Retired people 55+........ Seniorlab..............AAL and others-Second. Teachers (30-50s).. Digital Horchad......PLEs.-Musicians, (20-30s)............ Musiclab...............Digital content-Children (10-20).................. Scracht...............Comp.Thinking
Seniors are different!-Current seniors are healthier, they have more money, and more free time for learning, for being creative, and why not for participating in innovative projects...-Seniors (55-75) are not elders (80+).-One of the few areas in which Europe is just ahead of the rest of the world-Extension of neotenic characteristics. (Charlton, B.G. 2007)-How about a senior industry?: senior fashion, senior universities,knowledge tourism, etc.
A living lab on e-learning-The teachers need a living lab for innovating in teaching. – They are fed up of “technology harassment”-The “Hort Digital”, an innovative project for building a LL on e-learning, specially for teachers – A Personal Learning Environment (PLE) – A Problem based Learning approach-Results: – Very positive results with teachers – Support from the Dep. of Education to opening the project to other centers.
Edutech: Computational thinking foreveryoneScracht, learning programming with kids.
Citilab, where you can learn to innovate:90s. “Internet is for everyone”2010. To innovate is for everyone.
