Presentation Transcript

Wide range of ubiquitous technologies l.jpg
Wide Range of Ubiquitous Technologies:

  • Personal Devices:

    • Mobile Phones (3G, EDGE, GPRS, Bluetooth)

    • PDA’s (Bluetooth, WiFi)

    • MP3 Players

    • Laptops (Bluetooth, WiFi)

    • Cameras/Camera Phones

    • Digital audio recorders (Dictaphones/PDAs)

    • New generation of integrated devices

      • E.g. Hugh has a HP GPS PDA Phone, with GPRS, Bluetooth and enough memory to act as an iPod Nano

  • Located Devices

    • Touchscreens, Intelligent Signs

    • Desktop PCs

  • Location Technologies:

    • Global Positioning Systems

    • Cell based (for mob phones)

    • Bespoke (e.g. ultrasonic positioning)


What are the contextual considerations l.jpg
What are the Contextual Considerations?

  • What is permissible in the environment?

    • Radio frequency restrictions

    • Privacy Issues (photos, audio recording, etc)

    • Data protection (if integrating with existing systems)

  • What is intrusive?

    • Notifications (sounds, lights)

    • Input mechanisms (keyboards, stylus, mouse, voice, touch)

    • Mobile devices

      • easy to carry/use

    • Located Devices

      • easy to maintain in the environment


Other considerations l.jpg
Other Considerations

  • What do students and mentors already own?

    • Leverage existing technology infrastructure

    • No learning curve

    • Easier to incorporate into existing practise

    • People may be unwilling to replace their own devices (i.e. may want keep their own phones)

  • Development effort

    • Easier to build apps for laptops than PDAs, easier to build apps for PDAs than phones

    • Browser based (Web/WAP)?

      • Possible to have multi-access (via a range of devices)

  • Costs

    • Are their external contributions?

    • Is part of the point to make it affordable?

    • What happens if someone loses or breaks a device?


Technological aim l.jpg
Technological Aim

Our aim (although we may not be able to realise it - it’s a lot harder than it sounds) should be a toolkit that:

  • Uses existing devices wherever possible

  • Can be accessed in a variety of ways (phones, PDAs, Web browsers, etc)

  • Is composed of simple apps that are loosely coupled (perhaps as REST services)

  • Function as independently as possible

  • Can be used/combined in a number of ways as needed
