EEE: Educational Reflected Spaces

Recent technological advances open broad opportunities to link these spaces, thus enabling the realization of an “extended ubiquitous learning”settings that incorporate and coordinate objects and activities from the mall. Examples are: the use of augmented reality, that super imposes a digital layer on top of the physical space, providing extra information or linking objects; the use of 3D virtual spaces mirroring the physical space (e.g. showing animage from the physical world coming from a camera); sensors or RFID technology in the physical space that can provide information such as identity or location to digital applications; tangible computing devices that enable the manipulation of objects in the physical space that have impact on the digital space… Thanks to these technological affordances, objects in one space may have reflections in the others. That is the underlying basis of Educational Reflected Spaces (EEE from the Spanish acronym). Three kinds of EEE are considered by this project: the web space, the 3D virtual space, and the augmented physical space.
