Professor Rogers Continues Research on Ubiquitous Computing


SLIS professor of information science Yvonne Rogers is the lead author of "Ubi-learning Integrates Indoor and Outdoor Experiences," an article appearing in a special issue of the Association of Computing Machinery's (ACM) journal Communications of the ACM (Volume 48, Issue 1, January 2005: Pages 55-59).

The article, published in an issue devoted to the topic Interaction Design and Children, builds on the idea that "Digital augmentation dissolves many of the physical barriers to learning by offering tools to integrate data and discoveries that travel with students as they explore new terrain."

Rogers and her colleagues produce research demonstrating "that learning experiences can be designed that broaden and connect children's understandings, reflections, and hypotheses across both real world and classroom settings." They write, in short, that "ubi-learning experiences offer great potential for stretching children's minds."
