Intuitive interaction, prior experience and aging : an empirical study
Blackler, Alethea L., Mahar, Douglas P., & Popovic, Vesna (2009) Intuitive interaction, prior experience and aging : an empirical study. In Proceedings of HCI 2009, British Computer Society, Churchill College, Cambridge.
This paper describes an experiment undertaken to investigate intuitive interaction, particularly in older adults. Previous work has shown that intuitive interaction relies on past experience, and has also suggested that older people demonstrate less intuitive uses and slower times when completing set tasks with various devices. Similarly, this experiment showed that past experience with relevant products allowed people to use the interfaces of two different microwaves more quickly, although there were no significant differences between the different microwaves. It also revealed that certain aspects of cognitive decline related to aging, such as central executive function, have more impact on time, correct uses and intuitive uses than chronological age. Implications of these results and further work in this area are discussed.
