Home > News & Updates > University Seminar: "Activity Centered Design"

October 21, 2004. Dr. Geri Gay of Cornell University discussed "Activity Centered Design: An Ecological Approach to Designing Smart Tools and Usable Systems" as part of the University Seminars on New Media Teaching and Learning. During this presentation, Dr. Geri Gay spoke about lessons learned from two current research projects. The first described the use of wireless computing in formal and informal learning contexts (Intel, Microsoft, NSF) and the second featured collaborative learning among distributed project teams (NASA, AT&T Foundation). Together, we discussed the applicability to Columbia University courses.
