Dow Day: a situated documentary - Mobile Learning Experiences

Dow Day: a situated documentary - Mobile Learning Experiences | Meeting, Learning, and Collaboration | Scoop.it

The Situated Documentary starts from the assumption that the sounds and the images of the world in which we live in hide a historical past that we can discover and explore with technology.

 

Being in the same place in which particular historical facts occurred and being able to live what there is no longer constitutes a very important experiential conquest of the documentary genre.

❝The Situated Documentary allows learners to experience the recreation of a real life event (…) Situated documentaries work in harmony with technology to interact with information and to experience the world in new ways.❞

What technology is behind Dow Day?

 

❝ARIS, Short for Augmented Reality and Interactive Storytelling, is an authoring tool as well as an iPhone application that work together to create mobile, locative, narrative-centric, interactive experiences❞ [excerpt from David J. Gagnon manuscript (http://bit.ly/QeSRXk)]

 

or in other words:

❝ARIS is a user-friendly, open-source platform for creating and playing mobile games, tours and interactive stories. Using GPS and QR Codes, ARIS players experience a hybrid world of virtual interactive characters, items, and media placed in physical space.❞

[excerpt from the ARIS site]

Clay Leben's insight:

Social media is so temporary this might help context survive the momentary discovery learning.

Although the idea of relating history to current events is not new, the author gives some great ideas on how to use current social media to achieve this.
