ALC 15 year Strategic Plan 7. Goal C: Develop a Living Cultural Economy 94 CREATE DIGITAL INTERFACES The ALCs partnership with Queensland University of Technology (QUT) over the past two years, through the Land and Sea Ranger program, has been focussed on scientific research and has fostered a collaborative and productive relationship with the university. The ALC is now embarking on a new partnership with QUT to investigate the use of innovative digital interfaces to create and share knowledge. This project will research, design, build and evaluate novel public communal technologies including touch screen noticeboards and tabletops harmonised to the traditional community on Groote Eylandt. This will enable communication in identified priority areas including health, education, environment and culture. Funding for the five-year project is now secured and will use a process of collaborative cross-cultural design and research. Outcomes of the project will include a network of open source prototype systems, new interaction design methodologies and improved communications within and outside the community. The project will dove-tail with the proposed development of the Cultural Centres. The ALC will also work collaboratively with organisations on the island to coordinate and enhance the use of new technology in a range of areas including early childhood development, youth development, disability services, training and enterprise development. The ALC will take on a coordination role and facilitate the development of policies and strategies to assist in clarifying culturally appropriate approaches to the adoption and use of technology. Digitising historical and kinship information and providing an accessible interface for community to use and share cultural information will also be carried out as part of the development of the Cultural Centres and through partnerships with innovative technological organisations. ACTIONS: 105. Work with Queensland University of Technology and other partners in establishing digital interfaces for community to access, create and share community knowledge. 106. Digitise and create user-friendly interfaces for community to access traditional and cultural knowledge and history through the Cultural Centres. 107. Develop policies for appropriate approaches to the adoption and use of technology, which satisfy cultural requirements (also see section on Intellectual Property).
