My contribution summary:

Ultralab established early nineties

  • SchoolNet 2000
  • Talking Heads
  • Notschool.net
  • Etui
  • Input CBBC
  • Characterised by ‘participation and delight’

Can software be harnessed to the real needs?

  • new media – more choice about modality, narrative, place and pace
  • new tools – discourse, creativity, publication, decision support
  • new discourse framing – facilitation, access, software design
  • new sense of identity - prejudice, how do I fit in or stand out?
  • old tool culture - ICT as a tool is central to human society

Lewis Carroll describes a fictional map that had:

"the scale of a mile to the mile."

A character notes some practical difficulties with such a map and states that:

"we now use the country itself, as its own map, and I assure you it does nearly as well."
— Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, Lewis Carroll, 1893
