Exploring Greenhill by Gillian Cowell
About : Exploring Greenhill as a Place using Computers and the Internet
This action research project was mainly concerned with how participants in Greenhill, Bonnybridge (Stirlingshire) might, (1) Create an identity for where they live; (2) If and how this can be communicated through ICTs versus traditional methods, and (3) What form this might take. Of major importance to the study was how residents saw themselves within their community and how they expressed and developed this through an interactive process with other residents, to form an actual resource or set of resources. It was also interesting to observe whether computers and the Internet were used to create these resources. This booklet is aimed local policy makers as a medium to feed back outputs and outcomes.
