Exploring the role of situated displays in facilitating sense of community in a rural village community

Speaker:  Keith Cheverst – Lancaster, UNK, United Kingdom
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


In this talk I will discuss our on-going longitudinal ‘research-in-the-wild’ project with the rural village of Wray. The research has focussed on the user-centred design of the Wray Photo Display – a situated display based system that enables village residents to upload images (typically photos relating to the village’s cultural heritage) and associated comments for viewing by fellow residents and visitors. Our approach has sought to engage the community as much as possible with the design and development of the deployment of the system by using co-design workshops and ‘technology probes’. Furthermore, we have taken explicit steps, such as the implementation appropriate content moderation mechanisms, in order to provide the community with a sense of ownership over the deployment and associated content.
