Reframing the design of context-aware computing
Brereton, Margot, Mirisaee, Seyed Hadi , Ghelawat, Sunil, & Roe, Paul (2011) Reframing the design of context-aware computing. In Little, Linda & Coventry, Lynne (Eds.) Proceedings of the 25th BCS Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, Discovery Museum, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
From location-aware computing to mining the social web, representations of context have promised to make better software applications. The opportunities and challenges of context-aware computing from representational, situated and interactional perspectives have been well documented, but arguments from the perspective of design are somewhat disparate. This paper draws on both theoretical perspectives and a design framing, using the problem of designing a social mobile agile ridesharing system, in order to reflect upon and call for broader design approaches for context-aware computing and human-computer Interaction research in general.
