omnimedia recorded data processed through relevant frameworks and perspectives, rather than pre-filtering what is recorded based on these.

Could interpret through lenses of:

  • Scenography
  • Action research
  • Communities of inquiry
  • Classroom community
  • Practice research
  • Interaction
  • Activity theory
  • Grounded theory
  • Sociology – group
  • Anthropology
  • Scholarship of teaching and learning
  • Performance – actions
  • Human computer interaction

Need to look at the environment as a dynamic system.

Primary research – capture ALL data and interpret later (rather than pre-filtering data before recording, based on expected interpretation)

Capture ALL data and interpret via different frameworks later.

VR recording and playback? Can view from any perspective?

How to record EVERYTHING?

Robust data gathering –> 1˚ research data


INFORMATION DENSITY – all sensors available – visual, spatial, thermal…  – and then, how to bring these data together into something meaningful?

Demo of “the box” to show concept of recording everything.
