ERA (Enabling Remote Activity): A KMi designed system to support remote participation by mobility disabled students in geology field trips

This paper describes the design and initial field testing of the ERA (Enabling Remote Activity) system - a mobile wireless network devised by the Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) to support participation by mobility impaired students in geology fieldwork trips. We describe our approach and its relevance in educational and network research. We describe the set of tools implemented to facilitate remote learning, report on trial tests and lessons learnt. Finally we suggest future possible developments for the system and how it may be more widely applied.
