Abstract or Description

'Mudlarking' developed a prototype toolkit for users to participate in and produce locative media-based guided tours. The research contributed to the emerging international agenda concerned with mobile learning drawing on pervasive technologies, content authoring & situated experience, creating a new interdisciplinary concept - '��e-touring'. Uniquely, the project used handheld computers and GPS technology, inviting participants to produce the tour as they took part, gathering imaginative responses then available to the next tour group.
