Professor Lydia Plowman has written a book review of Invisibly Blighted: The Digital Erosion of Childhood by Sandra Leaton Gray and Andy Phippen. The review is published in Times Higher Education (1 June 2017):
Children and Technology have received a large grant to explore how sensing and interaction technologies can be used to help pre-school children think, learn and communicate about science and technology.
Move2Learn is funded by Wellcome and led in the UK by Andrew Manches in partnership with UCL and the Glasgow Science Centre.
Colleagues from the Centre are collaborating in an exciting new cross-disciplinary research project led by the School of Geosciences at Edinburgh, which will be researching new ways to respond to earthquake and aftershock in crisis regions.
In partnership with Concern Worldwide, the University of Ulster, University of Plymouth, Leeds Beckett University and the British Geological Survey, we will be looking at how we might design educational interventions to help people make decisions before, during and after earthquake.
Our colleague and doctoral student James Lamb has written about the recent Digital Education walking seminar (led by James with Jeremy Knox): ‘Wondering about the city: making meaning in Edinburgh’s Old Town’, which is accompanied below by Jen Ross’s excellent playlist, ‘Shuffling through the Old Town’.
