Article 1/2015 The Learning exhibition “nachhaltig.bauen.erleben” opened in Verden (25.4.2015)

Pekka Kämäräinen and Joanna Burchert

The application partner organisation Agentur and the affiliated organisations Netzwerk Nachhaltiges Bauen (NNB) and Norddeutsches Zentrum für Nachhaltiges Bauen (NZNB) joined in the Learning Layers during the time when the new exhibition centre and office building of the NZNB was under construction. During the Application Partner Day (APD) visit (Y1) the colleagues from these organisations outlined plans, how to incorporate digital media and web tools into the concept of a “Learning exhibition”. In the Y1 Design Conference (Helsinki) these plans were integrated into the design idea Captus: Capturing of knowledge and experiences with the help of digital media and web tools. Now, in April 2015 the inaugural ceremony of the building took place and the Learning Exhibition “nachhaltig. bauen. erleben” (sustainable. construction work. lived experience) was opened.

The opening ceremony gave an overview on different activities that are promoted by the host organisations. The subsequent inaugural presentations and demonstrations in the exhibition area gave insights into materials, construction techniques and equipment for ecological construction work. In the presentations the hosts informed visitors of the role of digital media (as support for further learning) and demonstrated the in-built applications of Augmented Reality in particular exhibition areas. In these presentations the hosts made transparent that the use of digital media and web applications had been taken up due to the participation in Learning Layers project.

The Learning Layers team from ITB and Pontydysgu had a small information stand that provided background information on the project and on parallel co-design processes. In addition to this the team members made interviews with the hosts and visitors. In these talks the team explored possibilities for further introduction of Learning Layers tools.

In the discussions with the hosts we concluded that the opening of the exhibition provided the basis for application partner Agentur and the affiliated network NNB to follow more closely the pilot implementation of Learning Layers system solution (Layers Box) and the deployment of Learning Toolbox in Bau-ABC.

Artikel 1/2015 Die Lernende Ausstellung “nachhaltig.bauen.erleben” wurde in Verden eröffnet (25.4.2015)

Pekka Kämäräinen und Joanna Burchert

Die Learning Layers Praxispartnerorganisationen Agentur, Netzwerk Nachhaltiges Bauen (NNB) und Norddeutsches Zentrum für Nachhaltiges Bauen (NZNB) haben dieses Jahr einen Höhepunkt erlebt. Am Anfang des Learning Layers-Projekts hatten sie gerade angefangen, ein neues Kompetenzzentrum mit Ausstellungs- und Büroräumen aufzubauen. Während des Application Partner Day (APD) Besuchs (am ersten Projektjahr) haben die KollegInnen ihre ersten Ideen präsentiert, wie man digitale Medien und Webtools in einer “Lernenden Ausstellung”. einbetten kann. In der nachfolgenden Designkonferenz (in Helsinki) wurden diese Pläne in der Learning Layers Design Idea Captus integriert (“Capturing of knowledge and experiences with the help of digital media and web tools”). Im April 2015 fand das Eröffnungsfest statt und die Ausstellung “nachhaltig. bauen. erleben”  wurde für Besucher zugänglich..

Das Eröffnungsfest bot einen Überblick über die Aktivitäten der Gastgeber. Danach konnte man sich in den Teilbereichen der  Austellung durch Präsentationen und Demonstrationen über ökologische Materialien und Bautechniken sowie über Werkzeuge und Geräte informieren. In diesem Zusammenhang informierten die Gastgeber die Besucher auch über die Potenziale der digitalen Medien (als Unterstützung für Lernprozesse). Insbesondere wurden einige Anwendungen der Augmented Reality in einige Teilbereiche eingebaut. In ihren Präsentationen stellten die Gastgeber heraus, dass die Rolle der digitalen Medien und Web Anwendungen dank der Teilnahme am Learning Layers Projekt so deutlich wurde.

Das Learning Layers Team aus ITB und Pontydysgu hatte auch ihren eigenen Tisch, um Informationen über das Projekt sowie parallele Designprozesse zu verbreiten. Anschliessend führte das Team Gespräche mit den Gastgebern und Besuchern. In diesen Gesprächen wurden Perspektiven für die Einbettung von Learning Layers-Tools in die Ausstellung und in weitere Aktivitäten diskutiert.

Nach diesen Gesprächen hatten wir den Eindruck, dass die Eröffnung der Ausstellung eine neue Phase für die Teilnahme der Agentur und des Netzwerks NNB an den Pilotaktivitäten des Learning Layers Projekts im Bausektor eröffnet.

Opening of “Learning Exhibition” in Verden – Part 2: The use of digital media and web tools

In my previous post I reported on the opening event of the ‘Learning Exhibition’ “nachhaltig. bauen. erleben” and its importance for the EU-funded project Learning Layers (LL). This event – the inauguration of the new ecological building and the opening of the inaugural exhibition is clearly a highlight for our application partners Agentur, NNB and NZNB in Verden.  In the previous post I summarised some first impressions of the Learning Layers team that contributed to the exhibition. Now that some of our photos are available as photo albums in our Facebook group Learning Layers Photos, it is possible to make further comments on the way that the exhibition has implemented the design ideas of the Learning Layers project (in particular of the Captus design team).

Opening of “Learning Exhibition” in Verden – Part 1: First impressions

Yesterday we witnessed a great day for the EU-funded project Learning Layers (LL) and its work in the North German construction pilots. Our application partner Agentur für nachhaltiges Bauen (Agency for ecological construction work) and the support organisations Netzwerk Nachhaltiges Bauen (NNB) and  Norddeutsches Zentrum für Nachhaltiges Bauen (NZNB) had reached an important milestone of their project activities. Their new  Exhibition building was inaugurated and the Learning Exhibition “nachhaltig. bauen. erleben” was opened. The preparation of this exhibition has been the central theme of the colleagues from Agentur, NNB and NZNB throughout their participation in the LL project.

1. The journey from an early design idea to making the exhibition

As we remember it, the idea to prepare a special exhibition – with emphasis on learning from experience – was highlighted by the colleagues from Agentur, NNB and NZNB during the first working meetings (December 2012) and the Application Continue reading
