Notes on what we're beginning to organise, by way of making Aliss a community-driven service. Early thoughts about social processes, mediated via friendly community-facing institutions who do this sort of thing as their core businesses, etc.

Striving For Mass Participation

  1. 1. Striving for mass participation
  2. 2. Why bother? technically 90: 09: 01
  3. 3. The changing profile of Scotland’s population
  4. 4. A Demographic Supertanker
  5. 5. What sort of participation are we after?
  6. 6. Maybe this? Blustery climate change demo in Poole 2009 Photo: Manuela Boeckle
  7. 7. Some ‘critical thinking’ in progress
  8. 8. What sort of mechanisms to try & use? <ul><li>Games? </li></ul><ul><li>Prizes? </li></ul><ul><li>Other incentives? </li></ul><ul><li>Learning? </li></ul>
  9. 9. Why a learning-oriented approach?
  10. 10. Aliss and the Curriculum for Excellence Compile group project folder – resources found, research validity, develop organisational skills and responsibilities/roles within group. Discuss/research validity of info - speak to local community centres/church halls hosting classes Orienteering – map building exercises, create sense of local area – where is nearest community centre? Bring into art lesson/IT design Research notes – how difficult was info to find? When participating in a collaborative enterprise activity, I can develop administrative and entrepreneurial skills which contribute to the success of the activity. TCH 3-07a I can explain how the needs of a group in my local community are supported. SOC 2-16a By exploring my local community, I have discovered the different roles people play and how they can help. SOC 0-16a Through activities in my local area, I have developed my mental map and sense of place. I can create and use maps of the area. SOC 1-14a Go out and find various resources locally – make a note/photo what you find. Possible Aliss-related Activity Potential CfE Touchpoint(s): Experiences & Outcomes Learning contexts & activities, variants on themes as approp. to different ages & stages, etc.
  11. 11. How might such activities map onto Aliss’ ICT eco-system? <ul><li>Data capture? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Web crawler instructions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Manual data capture </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A variety of routes </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Sense-making? </li></ul><ul><li>Data re-presentation? </li></ul>
  12. 12. Typical data for capture
  13. 13. Sense-making <ul><li>And ‘Science behind the news’-style semantic mark-up </li></ul>
  14. 14. Try a mental ‘search & replace ’ of ‘transport’ with ‘condition management class’? This working model was built in less than 48 hours… by a team of enthusiasts Pop-up in clinical systems , support NHS24 call-handling, appear in directories , etc??
  15. 15. Some questions <ul><li>Will these approaches work? </li></ul><ul><li>Will they scale? </li></ul><ul><li>How can they be applied and developed further? </li></ul><ul><li>Are there other Aliss-processes that can be ‘mass-participated’? </li></ul>
