Spaces and traces : the ecologies of mixed reality learning environments
Polson, Debra & Sade, Gavin (2005) Spaces and traces : the ecologies of mixed reality learning environments. In Online Teaching 2005 : Beyond Delivery, 27 September 2005, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane.
This paper outlines potential futures beyond delivery by describing our experience of using ‘social software’ within Communication Design classes in 2005. This experience has presented new perspectives on the design of the physical and virtual places in which learning is imagined and designed to occur. The paper argues that the focus on the development of online teaching needs to take into account the places, or non-places, in which students engage with these experiences. Underpinning this is a series of ‘ecological’ metaphors, and concepts, which could be viewed as motivation for future developments. The paper concludes by describing emerging design practices in locative media that hold regenerative potential.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
