Description

The purpose of the IK management system is to create a digital platform where the village elders can represent and share their knowledge in a meaningful way to them and the youth, who have migrated to urban areas. In a early phase of the project, co-researchers as well as community members have captured rich multimedia recordings of indigenous practices, which they considered to be relevant. Attempts of mapping local communication and thought patterns have guided design sessions and past prototype implementations and evaluations. We are currently exploring a number of design directions, one of them being the co-design of a 3D scenario-based visualization of the village to create a virtual context for the multimedia videos, another being a ubiquitous storytelling tool.
