Developing a Community-Based Interactive Planning System for Ecologically Sustainable Development

Publication year: 
1994

The Communication Centre at Queensland University of Technology is currently developing a programme to "plan ecologically sustainable development strategies with the aid of advanced technologies such as interactive multimedia". An action learning framework, using methods similar to PRA such as focus groups and semi-structured interviewing, is used to involve the community in planning new facilities. Other methods are more computer-based, such as "audit trails" which are "self-measurements and records that the computer compiles which map out the different pathways users take through a multimedia display".

Interest groups: 
This article could be useful to planners and researchers in 'Northern' countries, who are interested in participatory ways of using computer technology.
