Wearable Learning to enhance Creativity, Learning and Healthy Ageing: Conceptual Framework in the project “Fitness MOOC” (fMOOC)

2,783 views

Published on

Wearable Learning is beginning to emerge as one of the earmarks of the transition from the mobile age to the wearable era. This paper provides an insight into the conceptual framework of wearable learning as part of the R&D project called “Fitness MOOC - interaction of seniors with wearable fitness trackers in the MOOC (fMOOC)”. The fMOOC project is a cooperation between Beuth University of Applied Sciences and the Geriatric Research Center at Charité - one of the largest university hospitals in Europe. The project aims at developing a technology-enhanced learning solution combining the MOOC approach with elements of mobile and wearable learning. This paper focuses on the conceptual framework of the fMOOC informing the technical development. In particular, this paper discusses the potential of wearable technologies for creative learning as part of healthy ageing, exploring of links between creativity, learning and healthy ageing.

Wearable Learning to enhance Creativity, Learning and Healthy Ageing: Conceptual Framework in the project “Fitness MOOC” (fMOOC)

  1. 1. Wearable Learning for Healthy Ageing: A conceptual framework in the project Fitness MOOC - fMOOC Ilona Buchem, Agathe Merceron, Jörn Kreutel Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin *** Marten Haesner, Annika Steinert Research Group Geriatrics, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin Wednesday, September 17, 14
  2. 2. fMOOC Project • Project type: Preliminary Research & Development project (Vorprojekt) - based on the results a large-scale project will follow-up • Cooperation partners: Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin (project lead, technical development) and Research Group Geriatrics, Charité Berlin (user studies) • Project goals: Test and evaluate the interaction of senior users with wearable technologies (armbands) in a MOOC setting (learning for healthy ageing) • Project duration: 12 months • Project funding: German Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF) Ilona Buchem / EC-TEL 2014: / Graz, 17-09-2014 / CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 DE 1 Wednesday, September 17, 14
  3. 3. fMOOC Idea • Goal: Improve physical fitness and well-being • Learn: In a community of peers (MOOC) •Wearables: Armbands to track activities • Mobiles: Apps to analyse data and connect • Content: Fitness and fitness plans • Motivate: Explore, track progress • Sustain: Gamify experience Ilona Buchem / EC-TEL 2014: / Graz, 17-09-2014 / CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 DE 2 Wednesday, September 17, 14
  4. 4. A possible scenario Ilona Buchem / EC-TEL 2014: / Graz, 17-09-2014 / CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 DE 3 Jack (69) challenges his fMOOC friends to walk 35,000 steps in 14 days (2,500 steps per day). For this challenge he designs a walking plan around the town as a storytelling pathway with visual clues. Everyone enjoys exploring this pathway. Today his challenger Philip (68) has surpassed the daily goal and walked 2,516 steps (day’s best). He has also shared pictures he took walking in the fMOOC. Wednesday, September 17, 14

  6. 6. • Creativity: Contribution to well-being, e.g. flow theory explains how engagement in creativite activities contributes to deep enjoyment and pleasure through complete absorption with the activity •Well-being: Can be enhanced by engaing in flow activities on the intellectual, physical and social levels leading to both psycho-social well-being and physical well-being (e.g. fitness) • Healthy Ageing: Therapeutic effects of creativity - the outcomes of engaging in creative activities in internal to the person. • Health: Is not a permanent state but a dynamic state of well-being Ilona Buchem / EC-TEL 2014: / Graz, 17-09-2014 / CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 DE 5 Creativity & Well-being Wednesday, September 17, 14
  7. 7. • Definition of Health: As a dynamic state of well-being, health requires the person to learn how to manage this state. Health can be thus defined as a set of catabilities of an individual or a group. • Healthy living: The capability approach to health views these capabilities as learnable, adaptable and dependent on the context. Healthy living can be learned, e.g. learning how to remain fit, how to deal with stress etc. • Healthy Ageing: Can be defined as a process of optimising opportuntities for social, mental and physical health • Creative Learning: Positive impact on health, e.g. increased sense of control, social engament, sense of achievement, perception of competence Ilona Buchem / EC-TEL 2014: / Graz, 17-09-2014 / CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 DE 6 Health & Learning Wednesday, September 17, 14
  8. 8. • Mobile devices: Are carried to a location and are used in a state of temporal stationarity (e.g. standing, sitting) •Wearable devices: Body-worn devices used when the user us moving or engaging in other tasks (e.g. jogging, dancing). •Wearable learning: Learning enhanced by wearable devices which are equipped with mechanisms for context awareness, activity tracking, monitoring and sharing of data. Wearable learning supports: • Contextual information • Contextual interaction • Contextual participation Ilona Buchem / EC-TEL 2014: / Graz, 17-09-2014 / CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 DE 7 Wearable learning Wednesday, September 17, 14
  9. 9. • Flow activities: Design activities enhanced by mobile and wearable technologies which stimulate flow, e.g. contextual story-telling. • Data control: Provide mechanisms for the autonomous management of tracked data to enhance the sense of ownership. • Creative thinking: Enhance creating relations between elements and promote desire to learn more, explore, discover, venture etc. • Creative expression: Design conditions for being creative through expression, e.g. creating gamified experience for others. • Creative participation: Use person-in-environment perspective to design opportunities for creative engagement with the environment and others.
