Our project on innovative education intends to encourage the development of new artistic practice through the combination of geolocation, mobile technology and the use of the Internet and Web 2.0. We will borrow new trends developed by contemporary artists, ethnographers, cartographers and documentalists to offer students a set of conceptual and practical tools that will allow them to develop a collaborative project to identify and describe the interaction with the different narratives in the contemporary city. Our collaborative methodology is based on a process of democratic communication open to anybody, and it aims to achieve a cartography of the experienced city that is constantly under construction. This way our project favours the experience with new forms of creative writing about the urban space through new technologies and also the student’s experimentation with egalitarian communication through the creation of common spaces open to anybody’s participation.
