Scenarios For Peer-To-Peer Learning In Construction With Emerging Forms Of Collaborative Computing, Teemu Leinonen, Jukka Purrna, Kiarii Ngua, Alexander Hayes Jun 2015

Scenarios For Peer-To-Peer Learning In Construction With Emerging Forms Of Collaborative Computing, Teemu Leinonen, Jukka Purrna, Kiarii Ngua, Alexander Hayes

Alexander Hayes Mr.

Many small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Europe are interested in finding new methods of training and workplace learning. Technology-enhanced practices of peer-to-peer learning may offer various new possibilities for SMEs. In this study we consider emerging technologies for informal learning in construction work. These technologies include wearable computing, invisible and ambient computing, augmented reality and novel interaction technologies. Three preliminary scenarios presented in this paper demonstrate how these technologies may be used. These scenarios have been developed, with a focus on the use of technology within a community supporting peer-to-peer learning, that may negate some of the social concerns ...


Identity Awareness And Re-Use Of Research Data In Veillance And Social Computing, Alexander Hayes, Stephen Mann, Amir Aryani, Susannah Sabine, Leigh Blackall, Pia Waugh, Stephan Ridgway Jun 2015

Identity Awareness And Re-Use Of Research Data In Veillance And Social Computing, Alexander Hayes, Stephen Mann, Amir Aryani, Susannah Sabine, Leigh Blackall, Pia Waugh, Stephan Ridgway

Alexander Hayes Mr.

Identity awareness of research data has been introduced as a requirement for open research, transparency and reusability of research data in the context of eScience. This requirement includes the capability of linking research data to researchers, research projects and publications, and identifying the license for the data. This connectivity between research data and other elements in research ecosystems is required in order to make the data available and reusable beyond the initial research. In this paper, we examine these capabilities in the domains of veillance and social computing. The dataset cases presented in this paper articulate the challenges that researchers ...
