wide range of ubiquitous technologies
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
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
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
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
