144A Brownlow Hill: a Prototype Ambient Simulation-based Learning Experience

  1. 1. A prototypeAmbient Simulation-Based Learning Experience (ASLEX)
  2. 2.  Intended use  Level 1 Bacterial Pathogens module Pathogens: Past, Present, Future block Epidemic typhus as a case study for Pathogens Past  Factors affecting typhus prevalence in Victorian Liverpool  Evolution of virulence in rickettsia  Contemporary relevance, e.g. refugee camps, disaster zones Mediated/augmented/virtual reality; ubiquitous computing Integral formative and summative feedback Examined conventionally at end of module Caveat: This is seriously unfinished concept-ware!
  3. 3. Workhouse 256x256 m regionWellcome Images ,CC by-nc 2.0 UK & NI
  4. 4.  Affective Context Learning Model (Shackleton-Jones)  Learning is best when student emotionally engaged in advance  Memorable events (“flash bulb memories”) Ambient Simulation-based Learning Experience  Virtual world (OpenSim) via Android mobile devices  Lumiya viewer (due Q4 2012; developer Alina Lyvette)  Movement synchronized through real and virtual space (GPS) Format(s)  Digital landscape vs Story-telling vs Timeline vs Simulation  Group-based but each student has own hypothesis to test  Landscape provides data/evidence/tools, virtual characters  Students operate under resource constraints

  10. 10.  Limitations  Tech-driven or tech-enabled?  GPS accuracy  Android-only; frame rates, GPS, data plan  Lumiya: closed source/commercial (free for edu regions); subset of OpenSim, limited panning, avatar appearance, etc  No RL map cf AR apps: ARIS (iOS), Wikitude  Ethics of using virtual spaces Opportunities  Multi-user, mixed reality  Usable on desktop without GPS (runs from server or USB on PC)  Rapid development (out-sourcing)  Collaboration/reuse Google Project Glass
