Investigating New Wireless Technologies and Their Potential Impact on Children's Spatiality: A Role for GIS
Source: Transactions in GIS, Volume 10, Number 1, January 2006 , pp. 87-102(16)
Abstract:This paper outlines exploratory research undertaken by the “A New Sense of Place?” Project in Bristol, UK, into the potential new, location sensitive, computing technologies may have for enhancing urban children's socio-spatial practices. The paper describes a series of workshops held with children in which mapping activities and use of the technologies are supported by the use of a Geographic Information System (GIS). The paper suggests that sound-enabled GIS could play a major role in the management of such technologies.
