The Citizen Cyberlab was a 3 year long EU FP7 grant-funded project to research and evaluate on-line collaborative environments and software tools that stimulate creative learning in the context of Citizen Science. As Director of The Mobile Collective, Margaret was in charge of Community Outreach & Engagement, Events, and Community Building across the whole project.
Our goal has been to pioneer a range of open source platforms and tools that enable and enhance learning and creativity in Citizen Cyberscience, using four pilot projects as testbeds. These pilots, platforms and tools have been evaluated by experts in educational technology and human-computer interaction at University of Geneva and UCL. This research has produced new understanding of creative learning behaviours, anchored in real-world examples of Citizen Cyberscience.
The Citizen Cyberlab Consortium consisted of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR/UNOSAT), together with Imperial College (ICSTM), University College London (UCL), Université de Genève (UNIGE) and Université Paris Descartes (UPD), as well as the UK-based innovation consultancy, Gold Mobile Innovation, with a track-record of running inspiring events for software developers, scientists and educators, under the banner of The Mobile Collective (TMC).
