Universe United is a second screen experience designed to bring transparency to transmedia storytelling, focused on connections between storytelling conventions such as items, characters, events, and locations. With this approach, we hope to enlighten both newcomers and veterans of a particular cinematic and/or television universe.
While there is a growing focus on leveraging technology use for learning gains across the world, this focus is yet to extend to infrastructurally limited environments in India, among other countries. We draw on qualitative research conducted in the Indian states of Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, and West Bengal to highlight the challenges of designing educational technologies for "low-resource'' contexts, particularly when they are "low-resource'' along different dimensions.
Digital Naturalism investigates the role that Digital Media can play for Biological Field Work. It looks to uphold the naturalistic values of wilderness exploration while investigating the new abilities offered by digital technology. Digital Naturalism unites biologists, designers, engineers, and artists to build and analyze new devices. It focuses on crafting DIY technology and interacting with animals in new ways. In particular, Digital Naturalism looks at how digital media can be used to explore animal behaviors situated in their natural context.
