“Probe and proxies: Unraveling meaningful technology experiences”

Research output: Unpublished contribution to conferenceUnpublished paper


n our applied qualitative research we use technologies as probes to trigger analysis and reflection with the research participants on future mediated experiences. To go beyond attitudes and values, and to unravel the dynamic of future practices proxy technologies are used. They resemble the future solution and are experienced by the research participants for a period of time. This stimulates reflection during in depth interviews. We compare both techniques, and reflect on gained insight in different domains (e.g leisure, health, ).
