iCamp WP2 Final Review

  1. 1. WP2: iCamp Building Blocks Mart Laanpere, Terje Väljataga (TLU), Toma Klobučar (JSI) Co-financed by the European Union
  2. 2. The role and objectives of WP2 •  WP2 is a connecting link between pedagogical WP1 and technological WP3 •  Focus on conceptualising the iCamp Space: an open virtual learning environment that integrates heterogeneous learning systems and services and fosters collaboration •  Selecting, adapting, testing iCamp Space Building Blocks •  Investigating issues related to trust management, privacy, DRM in iCamp Space
  3. 3. iCamp Space: an activity space •  iCamp Space is not another Web portal: it’s an activity space (ecology), meaning space (ontology) •  Activity system: people, goals, mediators (Engeström)
  4. 4. Learning activity patterns •  Concept of affordances: from ecological psychology (Gibson 1979) to HCI •  Affordances match with activity patterns (recurring and re-usable activity schemas) •  Example list of learning activity patterns: –  Learner searches for a research paper –  Creating and editing an artifact –  Facilitator forms small groups within a study group –  Learners design together a graphic artifact –  Learner interacts with a multimedia artifact –  Study group negotiates a time for meeting –  Learners submit the results of group work –  Learner perform self-analysis and reflection –  Learner takes a test –  Facilitator assesses submitted assingments
