Transcript

  • 1. From Research to Research able Questions Early Experiences of the Global Impact Study of Public Access to ICTs Chris Coward
  • 2. Research Problem
    • What are the observable social and economic impacts of public access to ICT?
    • What is the magnitude of these impacts and how can we measure them?
    • What is the relationship between costs and benefits of providing public access to ICT?
  • 3.  
  • 4. Research Areas
    • Reach of Public Access ICTs
    • Usage of Public Access ICTs
    • Physical Design and Location of Public Access Venues
    • Public Access Venue Services and Operations
    • Information Ecologies
    • Policy and Regulatory Context
  • 5. 7+ domains (education, health, etc.) 27+ Research Questions 6+ socio-economic contexts (countries)
  • 6. Assessing Impact
            • INDIRECT IMPACT
            • DIRECT IMPACT
            • PERCEIVED IMPACT
            • SERVICES, OPERATIONS
            • USAGE
            • ACCESSIBILITY
            • AVAILABILITY
  • 7. Research Question Do Public Access facilities afford opportunities for sharing of experience, space, expertise, and technologies so as to enhance outcomes/impacts in ways that could not have been as effectively realized outside of a public access space?
    • Hypotheses
    • End-user co-present space sharing (people occupy the space together but have their own computers) enhances the outcomes/impacts of computer use in many cases.
    • End-user co-present technology sharing (people occupy the space together and also share a single computer) enhances the outcomes/impacts of computer use in many cases.
    • End-users will share at times equipment even in the presence of abundance in order to satisfy individual interests or social norms.
    • The architecture, rules, and norms of the public access space influence the ability of people to engage in end-user co-present space sharing. These spaces can be designed to encourage the best sort of sharing.
    • The code of technologies influences the ability of people to engage in end-user co-present technology sharing. These computer technologies can be designed to encourage the best sort of sharing.
