    Re-Imagining Situated Action Theory - Position Paper

    Position Paper | “Re-Imagining Situated Action Theory” –

    This position paper proposes that Situated Action Theory should be updated to take into account the affordances and emerging actions of humans interacting with virtual agents, virtual contexts and multi-sensory immersive experiences. Since its establishment in the mid 1980’s and subsequent revision in 2007, Situated Action Theory has posited that “knowing is inseparable from doing,” yet, the theory does not explicitly address “virtual contexts” in which doing and knowing are re-imagined, or re-configured. Furthermore, humans are interacting with virtual (smart agents) which complete tasks for humans, thus eliminating the “doing” and forcing a re- examination of situated actions within virtual and algorithmically generated contexts.

    Teaching in an Age of Ubiquitous Social Media: An Informal Ethnographic Survey

    Abstract:
    Social media is widely used and accepted by students and professors/lecturers of higher education and has become a central part of their lives in and out of the university classroom. Social media has altered the practice of “e-learning” and “mobile learning” and has influenced the development of new hybrid cultures of learning which are enhanced by ubiquitous and pervasive technologies of mass communication and collaboration. This paper provides first hand accounts and experiences with applying the use of social media and related technology enhanced learning methods within higher- education settings that serve a diverse International demographic. Furthermore, this paper goes beyond state of the art in research on teaching and learning with technology by providing insights into emerging and future technology enhanced learning scenarios between students of varied cultural backgrounds and techno-cultures.

    Reflections of a Nomadic Learner in the Age of Ubiquitous Communication

    Presentated at the London Knowledge Lab for the Design for Learning.
    Abstract:
    Ubiquitous communication and mixed-reality computing
    scenarios are becoming commonplace and are influencing in the way in
    which individuals communicate and relate with others and their
    surroundings. This talk will present reflections of a nomadic learner
    who is examining how existing and emerging information &
    communications technologies and services are redefining formal and
    informal learning scenarios. The expected result of this talk will be
    to ultimately inspire those in attendance to gain a clearer
    perspective on how we are shaping the future of learning.

    Learner Centred Design: Applying MobileHCI and Mobile Design Research Methods in Mobile and Informal Learning Contexts

    Purpose of Workshop Paper:
    To survey research methods from Mobile Human Computer Interaction (MobileHCI) and Mobile Design research;
    To explore and reflect on current methods to determine how to obtain the most useful data within informal and mobile learning contexts

    Objective of Paper:
    To ascertain how/if the above said methods could be applied to Informal and Mobile Learning Research.

    Research Question:
    How can MobileHCI and Mobile Design research methodologies be implemented into Informal and Mobile Learning Research in order to gain the crucial data to help inform how individuals learn within the context of mobile and informal learning contexts.
