La coévolution de l’informatique et de son histoire 

La coévolution de l’informatique et de son histoire 

This article aims to show how computing and the writing of its history have jointly evolved from an internalist approach and a fascination for the machine and the hardware to a broader interest for the « computer in society » and then digital cultures. This historiographical panorama questions the historical glance on computing during the last four decades but also the way in which historians have progressively taken into account issues that were already underway in the study of ICTs.

Analysis of Temporal and Web Site References in History-related Tweets

Having good knowledge and comprehension of history is believed to be important for a variety of reasons. In this paper we report the initial results of a large scale exploratory analysis of history-focused references in microblogs based on 11-months long snapshot of Twitter data. The results of this study can be used for designing content recommendation systems and can help to improve time aware search applications.

Board Game Prototyping to Co-Design a Better Location-Based Digital Game

Board Game Prototyping to Co-Design a Better Location-Based Digital Game

In this case study we describe the iterative process of paper prototyping, using a board game, to co-design a location-based mobile application. The end goal of the application is to motivate reflection on historical topics about migration. The board game serves to capture the core concerns of this application by simulating movement through the city. Three play tests highlighted the users' interest and issues with the historical content, the way this content is represented, and the players' responses to the interactions and motivating mechanisms of the application.
