Multiple Views for Supporting Lifelong, Highly Contextual and Ubiquitous Social Learning
Current social networking services provide ways to access to huge amounts of information in different contexts. However, these applications are still not oriented to managing knowledge or facilitating learning processes. Aiming to help users to access, create, validate and distribute their knowledge, we propose the design of a prototype combining multiple views to support highly contextual learning. This prototype consists on a mobile application based on diverse functionalities and interaction mechanisms currently used in social networking services. With this application, users will be able to register elements from their surrounding environment in form of micronotes, concepts, images, or other media. These knowledge blocks can be processed and rendered in different views (text, map, calendar, concept map, timeline), and augmented with information related to their space, time, and reference contextual information.
