Technology-enhanced Learning for Cultural Heritage
Keywords:Use Case Scenario, Technology-enhanced Learning, Learning-by- Authoring, m-Learning, Cultural Heritage, East Christian Iconographical Art
AbstractThis paper demonstrates an approach for technology-enhanced learning, combining analysis, collaborative work, mobile learning (m-learning for short), discussion, and learning-by-authoring approaches in order to achieve more active participation of the learners during the reception of knowledge and to stimulate their creative thinking. The learners visit famous churches, monasteries, museums, etc., where they can see samples of Bulgarian Iconography supported by m-learning. They rely on the GUIDE@HAND platform containing personalized collections presenting location, historical data, pictures, etc. Multimedia and other information resources are delivered through the Virtual Encyclopaedia of the East-Christian Art digital library (BIDL)—a web-based environment for registration, documentation, access and exploration of Bulgarian iconographical artefacts. The main goal of the learners is to create their own learning material/project by analysing the available resources. The presented use case also involves collaborative work and discussion approaches in order to attract learners and support their more active participation in the learning process.
