American Educational Research Association Annual Meeting

In this paper, I delve into what it means to use technology as a tool to facilitate an agenda of peacemaking. Taking a design experiment approach, I explore the affordances and constraints of mobile learning in peace education, particularly in deeply divided societies. More specifically, I use the Augmented Reality and Interactive Storytelling (ARIS) platform to investigate potential role of locative, interactive situated documentaries in the peace process in Northern Ireland. I take up a narrative and identity focused framework to discuss the implications of this design experiment for history teaching, peace education, and education in general.
