Bodystorming Mobile Learning Experiences
Smith, Brian K.
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v58 n1 p71-76 Jan 2014
Bodystorming is a technique used by designers to better understand how the settings where interactive systems are deployed might affect their intended uses. The articulation of design concepts "in the wild" and using forms of performance and improvisation are intended to help designers become more aware of contextual issues that may not be revealed in traditional brainstorming exercises. Bodystorming can be a useful technique for designers of mobile learning experiences, as it helps make interactions between learners, devices, and locations more explicit. The general method is described in this paper and followed by two case studies of its use in the design of mobile learning experiences.
