PaperWorks is an EU project concerned with providing distinctive ways of interleaving paper documents with digital materials. The project focuses on developing a core technology for interlinking established content in paper and electronic domains. This is made possible through a non-obtrusive pattern on the paper that allows users to interrelate content with associated digital information. PaperWorks also involves innovative developments in the production of novel substrates, inks, reading devices and the integration of software and communication resources as well as requiring an adaptable information architecture. This is all supported by innovative research to develop support for authoring information and associated links. Edexcel / Pearson Education have now been working with this project group for 18 months and are developing a method of linking these technologies to both summative and formative assessment processes. The project also involves an analysis of the development and capture of creative and problem solving processes. Edexcel / Pearson also have a keen interest in developing the links between assessment and learning and through this project are able to demonstrate a variety of potential opportunities that the technology can provide to foster and nurture these links.
