Breaking the Campus Bubble / Academic
Students living on a university campus can feel like they are living in a "bubble" - an isolated and insular community cut off from the outside world. Can interaction with technology be used to help break the bubble, foster interaction and help to create a sense of community?
My paper Breaking the Campus Bubble: Informed, Engaged, Connected tests this theory by using the UniVote system I developed as a case study. This paper was published and I presented it at the British Human-Computer Interaction Conference 2007 at Lancaster University.
