Abstract The question of how computers and Internet can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of education has been in the foreground for the past decade. ICTs are acknowledged to bring great potential in the domain of education, especially when appropriately used to expand the access to information, raise the educational quality and transform it into an active process directly connected to the real life. In particular, Ambient Intelligence technologies can be directly linked with education and especially the notion of Smart Classroom. Smart Classrooms, in general, aim to enhance the conventional classroom with sophisticated technologies to support the learning process. The numerous existing approaches address the technological augmentation of the classroom, but do not pay enough attention to the actual student needs or the designers, which are called to build complex “smart” educational applications. The PUPIL system, reported in this thesis, in collaboration with the ClassMATE infrastructure, aims to lay the foundation towards the realization of the AmI Classroom and assist the students throughout their journey to knowledge. In particular, the PUPIL system has been developed following a user centered design process (UCD), and puts to practice a set of tools and guidelines to promote the design of usable educational applications that can migrate among various technologically augmented classroom artifacts. The designers are equipped with a library of widgets that can be appropriately transformed to achieve optimal display on the available artifact. This library does not contain only common UI elements, but also incorporates mini interfaces that are frequently used by educational applications as readyto- use modules. Therefore, the designers’ work is minimized, since numerous design decisions have been made a priori. Furthermore, considering the diversity of characteristics among the classroom artifacts, the PUPIL system aims to support the students through their everyday educational activities by introducing appropriate workspaces (Window Managers) to host the applications and facilitate studying. This thesis discusses the adopted design process, the derived design guidelines for Ambient Intelligence classroom applications, the developed widget library and Windows Managers, and reports a case study concerning the development and evaluation of a series of applications implemented using the developed tools.
