Building the WAAD

The process of building the WAAD started with each of us creating work activity notes based on our raw contextual data, mainly the interviews. Afterwards, we came together and began to cluster our work activity notes with post-its.

We found that we had a few small clusters with about 2-5 work activity notes, and a couple of large clusters with about 7-10 work activity notes. We then attempted to label the clusters while reconfiguring where to place some work activity notes. Once this was done, we found that we had eight clusters: information sources, types of information shared within CHCI, types of information shared outside of CHCI, privacy of shared information, visualization of accessed information, filtering of accessed information, colocation and community, and where information is shared to.

These clusters were then put into groups describing an overarching fact about them. That grouping is as followed:

  • Information: information sources, types of information shared within CHCI, and types of information shared outside of CHCI
  • Sharing: privacy of shared information and where information is shared
  • Information Access: visualization of accessed information and filtering of accessed information
  • Co-location: co-location and community
