Wearable Technology in the Lab - a useful new perspective?

  1. 1. WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY IN THE LAB A USEFUL NEW PERSPECTIVE? A study conducted by Dr Tatyana Devine, Clare Gormley & Patrick Doyle Twitter: @clare_gormley @dyagetme
  2. 2. HOW DID THIS PROJECT COME ABOUT? Team member had purchased action camera TEU & Biomedical Science faculty were working on an online Immunology Module ASU showcased use of wearable camera in their internal projects Sparked Idea for Our Wearable Camera Project
  3. 3. WHAT IS THE RESEARCH QUESTION? How is wearable camera-created video perceived by students as a learning tool? Academic created an authentic video of a procedure using wearable camera We asked 29 undergrad and 9 postgrad students to review this video We issued questionnaires to each cohort We analysed their feedback according to comment frequency
  4. 4. HOW AND WHAT WAS CREATED? Demo Link: https://db.tt/qdnLchQZ
  5. 5. WHY A POV STYLE? “POV shot occurs when the camera assumes the spatial position of a character in order to show us what the character sees; the camera lens is, so to speak, the eye of the character (hence the metaphor “camera eye”), with the result that our sensory perception is restricted to that of the character.” Brannigan (1984, p.6) Point of View in the Cinema: a Theory of Narration and Subjectivity in Classical Film
  6. 6. WHY A POV STYLE? TRADITIONAL METHODS • Expensive • up to £5000 per day • Time consuming • Cast, crew, equipment, set up, reshoots, academic in front of cameras which leads to anxiety • Storytelling • Narrative convention (Establishing shot, medium shot, close up)
  7. 7. WHY A POV STYLE? POV METHOD • Expensive? • One camera – up to £400 • Time consuming? • Equipment and crew not needed – Lights / microphone operator / camera operator. • Easy set up - academic concentrates upon task at hand • Storytelling? • Narrative convention is not needed. Just film the learning task – the context is provided in supplementary learning material
  8. 8. WHAT DID STUDENTS THINK ? – PART 1
  9. 9. WHAT DID STUDENTS THINK? – PART 2
  10. 10. WHAT DID STUDENTS THINK? – PART 3
  11. 11. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR THE ACADEMIC? Ability to record under normal lights anywhere Ability to concentrate on the subject Academic’s voice is accepted as expert NOTE Academic needs to practice with the camera and app Slow head movements Review and begin filming
