Reflecting on Co-Creating a Smart Learning Ecosystem for Adolescents with Congenital Brain Damage

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceedingResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Special needs education is focusing on a complex interplay of cognitive (knowledge), physical (motor rehabilitation), and social (interaction) learning. There is a strong discrepancy between the institutional spaces in which learning takes place and the need for scaffolding these levels of learning. In this paper we present a first part of an ongoing collaboration with a special needs education facility for adolescents with congenital and acquired brain damage, that is interested in exploring the transformation of the institutional space into a smart learning ecosystem. We exemplify our research approach with a case study of a corridor in the institution that serves as a test bed for the involvement of all parties, i.e. residents, staff, management, in this transformation process.
