MOMENTS – Models and Methods for Future Knowledge Construction: Interdisciplinary Implementations with Mobile Technologies(2002-2006)
(Tiedon luomisen mallit ja metodit tulevaisuudessa: Mobiiliteknologiaa hyödyntävät monitieteiset sovellukset)
MOMENTS was an Academy of Finland ”Life as Learning” Programme Consortium.
The main aims of the consortium were:
- to draw from an interdisciplinary perspective (e.g., technological, educational, and societal) and research traditions in order to gain thorough comprehension regarding future challenges of learning and knowledge construction;
- to design and assess a new integrated model that is based on an analysis of existing methods and models as well as future learning needs. This model is planned to combine a number of teaching and learning theories, understanding of the culture, society, and modern technologies in a novel way. Special focus was paid to the cultural changes vis-à-vis the use of mobile technologies and mobile communication
- to find and test technological solutions, which lead to a new integrated model based on future teaching, studying and learning needs. Implementing the model was directly related to experimenting certain mobile technologies in the framework of lifelong learning.
The MOMENTS consortium was co-run by the Tampere University of Technology, Pori; the University of Turku; the University of Jyväskylä; the University of Lapland and the University of Helsinki.
