Short description:

This interface facilitates the creation of queries that normally require a high level of complexity, by making the most of user’s embodied cognition. While the back engine of this tool works with Europeana Aggregated Fields as well as diverse Parser Syntax to connect ideas through JavaScript and JQuery, the user gets to create intricate queries to explore the digital collections in a simple and engaging environment, reducing substantially the difficulties that usually accompany querying languages and large datasets. The objects used in the interface are paper models that can be printed and built by users, encouraging creation and co-creation.

A Downloadable Tangible User Interface to Explore Europeana Data This interface facilitates the creation of queries that normally require a high level of complexity, by making the most of user’s embodied cognition. While the back engine of this tool works with Europeana Aggregated Fields as well as diverse Parser Syntax to connect ideas through JavaScript and JQuery, the user gets to create intricate queries to explore the digital collections in a simple and engaging environment, reducing substantially the difficulties that usually accompany querying languages and large datasets. The objects used in the interface are paper models that can be printed and built by users, encouraging creation and co-creation. Tangible Systems assist dealing with complex sets of information by offloading mental processes on to the physical objects. The use of physical objects can assist users to produce an understanding of the information that is valuable for learning. Moreover it offers a vision of the data structure that communicates the affordances of the information; this tells users the different types of questions and navigations they can perform on the system. The design methodology behind this system has acknowledged the previous work carried out by cultural heritage institutions and groups that collaborate to produce a wide range of interfaces to engage with cultural heritage digital content, especially on the Web. Nevertheless, there is still much more work to do to provide a meaningful learning experience. On the Web, users will carry out these learning and exploration by themselves, away from any cultural heritage location, where TUIs can also assist promoting independent learning, exploration, sense making, and social interaction.
