A brief introduction
'The Space Between' in its philosophy refers to a liminal online space that exists amongst and between innumerable other online platforms. As such, it is an ideal springboard for projects involving space, technology, education and accessibility.
The first reference involves the 2015 project, 'Space In Your Hands', an initiative designed to make education about space and the universe more accessible to the visually impaired via 3D printing technology. More information about this project can be found here .
Relative to the idea of 'the space between', digital GeoGebra applets have been integrated into classes administered by Dr Claire Foullon and have allowed students their own interactive learning space that can also be available to the educator to track progress. More information on the Exeter GeoGebra initiative can be found here.
Space, both physical and digital, and the improvement of accessibility in education through technology have both become of paramount importance to our modern world as things adapt, change and develop. This also comes at a time when the world is readjusting to life inside or in some cases, newly outside of a global pandemic.
