Morgan Kaufmann, 26.9.2014 - 274 sivua
Conducting research and technology design for domestic life is by no means easy. Methods commonly used in the field of Human-Computer Interaction in settings like the workplace may not easily translate to the richness and complexity of domestic life. This book documents new ways in which researchers are studying domestic life, as well as designing and evaluating technology in the home. Each chapter is a candid discussion about methods that were successfully used for research studies with a focus on the challenges that the researchers faced and the best practices they learned.
  • Discover new research methods for exploring family life and evaluating and designing domestic technology.
  • Learn about the challenges in designing for and studying domestic life from experts in the field.
  • Read researchers' candid stories about what works and what does not work in practice.
  • More information available at the companion website: http://lessonsfromhome.org/
