edCity - a New Learning Environment

Abstract : edCity will facilitate learning anywhere, anytime, for anyone - for users of all ages both in traditionally taught and in pedagogically innovative courses - by fusing physical and virtual representations of real cities in order to provide a new learning framework. The edCity project will be scenario-driven with major conceptual inputs to the design generated by highly interactive scenario-building activities. After 18 months, a "Semantic Web" framework will be published and a prototype of the edCity application will be demonstrated. Tools will be developed to harvest and present learning content, generating multilingual, localised content modules accessible in the edCity environment. In years 2 and 3, the full edCity Learning Environment will be demonstrated in [at least] 2 European cities or regions and desk-validated in all 25 EU states. edCity will be submitted as an FP6 Project. Research, development, deployment and management will involve 15 European organisations, from 8 EU states.
