GeoHCI for learning in the wild

FitzGerald, Elizabeth and Adams, Anne (2013). GeoHCI for learning in the wild. In: GeoHCI Workshop at CHI 2013, 27-28 Apr 2013, Paris, France.



This position paper gives exemplars of location-based ‘in the wild’ learning and their relationship to GeoHCI, and also describes the challenges and research questions inherent in doing so. We present several projects that encompass both formal and informal learning experiences. We discuss the issues arising from the use of outdoor in the wild ‘blended spaces’ to change geoscience practices, together with a suggestion that we should also be considering a more responsible and scalable approach when designing these interventions.
