  • This is all excellent Carl. I feel human beings' opportunity for self-expression is exercising or inhibiting our individual authority, agency, autonomy and access moment-to-moment as we perceive our changing experiences, contexts, circumstances and reality.

  1. 1. Enabling Creative Context Engineering within Augmented Spaces Carl Smith Learning Technology Research Institute (LTRI) London Metropolitan UniversityLondon Metropolitan University Learning Technology Research Institute
  2. 2. Research: Augmenting Learning Contexts A core research area at LTRI is to understand the contextual factors which influence and affect learning.The first wave of mobile learning was communication, the second was content and now we have entered the third, which is context.MAR is about context because it is inherently about who you are, where you are, what you are doing, and what is around you.Well designed MAR should enable the creation of situations and concepts that could not have been realised before by uniting the strengths, features and possibilities of both the physical and the virtual space.London Metropolitan University Learning Technology Research Institute
  3. 3. LTRI: Augmenting Learning Contexts Learning requires the possibility to transform your point of view and re-program your perspective. Replacing imagination with computer animation? Leverage computers instead of catering to them (natural interaction) Build daydreaming back in.... Use technology to create ‘post digital’ context engines.London Metropolitan University Learning Technology Research Institute
  4. 4. Definition of Context EngineeringLondon Metropolitan University Learning Technology Research Institute
  5. 5. Technology can be invented; human nature is something were stuck with. A tool addresses human needs by amplifying human capabilities. “Pictures Under Glass is an interaction paradigm of permanent numbness and yet, its the star player in every Vision Of The Future.”London Metropolitan University Learning Technology Research Institute

  8. 8. Ancient Technology: Body Mnemonics ‘the body space is a very individual culturally defined construct, and thus can provide a highly personalised and meaningful interface.” (Ängeslevä, J. 2003)London Metropolitan University Learning Technology Research Institute

  17. 17. Macroscopic LearningA map of Manhattan named “Here& There.” places the viewersimultaneously above the cityand in it and allows them to plota path between them.The projection connects theviewers local environment toremote destinations normally out ofsight. “A macroscope is something thathelps us see what the aggregationof many small actions looks likewhen added together.” JohnThackeraLondon Metropolitan University Learning Technology Research Institute
  18. 18. A revolution in spatial literacy: Access to new spaces: Implications for what can be knownLondon Metropolitan University Learning Technology Research Institute

  20. 20. To see across as opposed to from AR methodologies can be used to fundamentally expand the range of available ways of seeing. The AR methodologies formulated during this research allow users to work simultaneously from the macroscopic and microscopic view. This enables them to shift their pov and rapidly reframe their understanding. Not centred on the technology but the navigational shift that results when the world itself becomes the interface. New emphasis on spatial literacy is required.London Metropolitan University Learning Technology Research Institute
  21. 21. Conclusion – Surveillance vs ImaginationThe danger of Augmented Reality applications lies in rationalising spaces using tags, categories, and ratings. This documentation and digitisation of elements of our world is a form of surveillance.We need to reactivate the imagination as a faculty through which to experience our surroundings and explore the meaning of spaces through personal narration, rather than objective knowledge systems.carl.smith@londonmet.ac.ukLondon Metropolitan University Learning Technology Research Institute
