Maintaining human agency in the design on context-aware systems : Design games in a dental surgery
Campbell, Brett & Brereton, Margot (2004) Maintaining human agency in the design on context-aware systems : Design games in a dental surgery. In Hyland, P & Vrazalic, L (Eds.) The 2004 Conference for the Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group (OZCHI), 22 - 24 November 2004, Australia, New South Wales, Wollongong.
This paper describes a series of design games, specifically aimed at exploring shifts in human agency in order to inform the design of context-aware applications. The games focused on understanding information handling issues in dental practice with participants from a university dental school playing an active role in the activities. Participatory design activities help participants to reveal potential implicit technical resources that can be presented explicitly in technologies in order to assist humans in managing their interactions with and amidst technical systems gracefully.
