Persuasive technology, designed to change behaviors and attitudes, stands on uneasy moral ground. A key concern is the appropriateness of the means of persuasion and the intent to persuade. Engaging with those who will use the persuasive technology can ensure that it aligns with their own desires for change. This paper presents an early case study applying participatory design methods to persuasive technology in the context of a college EcoHouse. After presenting the methods and results, I… Expand

Figures and Topics from this paper

Perswedo: Introducing Persuasive Principles into the Creative Design Process Through a Design Card-Set
TLDR
A formative study of Perswedo, a card-based tool that introduces persuasive principles from Persuasive Systems Design model to support the creative design flow and suggest further study to resonate PT theoretical work with design practice. Expand
Is Sustainability a Special Case for Persuasion?
TLDR
This work proposes a route forward whereby practitioners may ethically realize the full persuasive potential of persuasive technologies: by adopting a VSD approach to cultivating values and fostering deliberation, and by appealing to fear in cases where fear is integral to the narrative driving the persuasive technology goal, while promoting efficacy in the face of fear. Expand
Informing Design of Suggestion and Self-Monitoring Tools through Participatory Experience Prototypes
TLDR
A participatory design approach was applied that included experience prototypes, which aim to actively engage designers and participants with the functions that new technology might serve in the context of their daily lives. Expand
A Multi-stakeholder Process of Designing a City Platform for Sustainable Behavior: Lessons Learned
TLDR
It is argued that integrating urban data in behavior change support systems can support personalization and better context understanding and that when addressing sustainability from a system perspective, stakeholder engagement is a continuous process and designers need to ensure agency of all those involved. Expand
A Conceptual Model of Interactive Persuasive Learning System for Elderly to Encourage Computer-Based Learning Process
TLDR
The conceptual model of interactive persuasive learning system for elderly that can be used in encouraging them to learn using computer-based learning tools is proposed and will be helpful in designing and developing interactive media systems that can encourage and engage a learning process among elderly. Expand
Participatory design and sustainability: a literature review of PDC proceedings
TLDR
The study is based on a literature review of the PDC Proceedings and it provides both an outline of the structural aspects of the literature and a mapping of three use patterns of the concept: PD for S sustainability; Sustainability of PD Practice; and S sustainability of PD Results. Expand
Persuasive Reminders for Health Self-Management
TLDR
Insight is contributed into desired features for persuasive reminder systems from the perspectives of patients and informal caregivers, including features that support users to understand why and how to complete health tasks ahead of time, and affordances for intra-familial and patient-provider collaboration. Expand
Articulating Co-Design in Museums: Reflections on Two Participatory Processes
TLDR
This paper detailing and comparing two strategies for the participatory development of interaction concepts and prototypes in the context of technologically-enhanced museum visiting experiences and drawing a set of themes for discussion and reflection to inform and aid researchers and practitioners participating in similar co-design processes, particularly in the domain of cultural heritage. Expand
Designing for Emotional Well-being: Integrating Persuasion and Customization into Mental Health Technologies
TLDR
It is suggested that participants’ engagement with the apps is affected by their level of energy and motivation, depending on the severity of symptoms, and how customizable systems can increase autonomy without overburdening users in the context of mental health. Expand
Interactive Survey Design Using Pidgin and GIFS
An online survey is a growing phenomenon in the digital age because it is time-efficient and attracted little or no cost, contrary to traditional survey method which is time-consuming and expensive.Expand
