    Abstract

    The research described in this paper is the investigation of interactivity between learners and system in the context of remote access to educational field explorations (field trips). The concept is described generically as Remote Access Field Trip (RAFT). The interactivity framework proposed for assessing RAFT considers it within the context of live distance education and needs to be judged in terms of set interaction criteria, e.g. Learner & Learner, Learner & Instructor, Learner & Content and Learner & Interface. This paper proposes that criteria for distance learning interaction assessment should consider also how the learner interacts with a pervasive interface. This is particularly relevant in this context because the system involves participants interacting with a pervasive system within a live field trip experience, and creates a unique human-system interaction in the educational domain.
