The FNR funded LOCALE (local legacies) project has now started. The project looks at location-aware digital storytelling from the perspective of tools and techniques to support the connection of different stories. Among the key parts of the project are data mining of the stories from the perspective of sense of place. The project itself will involve older IT users in Luxembourg who wish to share their stories of Luxembourg since the end of World War 2. As part of this we will explore how to use such technologies to bridge the digital divide between users of different ages.
The project will run until 2017 and is in partnership with CRP-Gabriel Lippmann.
