Participants at our ‘Education in the wild’ workshop last week at the STELLAR Alpine Rendez-Vous in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, explored their creative side, during its ‘Future Technology Workshop’ session. Here, we asked them to envisage current and future, activities and technologies, through a series of structured activities that took them through ‘imagineering’, modelling their ideas with craft materials and even creating adverts for potential customers.
The other parts of the workshop asked presenters to share examples of good practice and also invited contributions to a debate that asked the question ‘does location-based contextual mobile learning lead to shallower learning?’
It was a thoroughly enjoyable event that brought together researchers from across the EU and North America to discuss critical issues surrounding location-based mobile learning. A full report from the workshop will be available in Spring 2010.
