Susan Weinschenk, "Neuro Web Design: What makes them click?"

Susan Weinschenk, "Neuro Web Design: What makes them click?" | Technologies, & Human-Computer Interface and Interaction | Scoop.it

Description. "We think that people are logical and rational, and that their decisions are made by careful thinking. But the reality is that the actions that people take at websites – whether they decide to register, buy, or take the action we would like them to take — are made in a largely unconscious way. Although some decisions might come from the rational part of the brain, many decisions and actions are based on emotion, and many are based on automatic triggers that people react to from something at the website."

Keywords. Psychology, Perception, Decisions, Web design, HCI

Kentaro Toyama, "Ten Myths of ICT for International Development"

Description. "The past decade has seen incredible interest in applying information and communication technologies for international development, an endeavor often abbreviated "ICT4D." Can mobile phones be used to improve rural healthcare? How do you design user interfaces for an illiterate migrant worker? What value is technology to a farmer earning $1 a day?

Interventionist ICT4D projects seek to answer these kinds of questions, but the excitement has also generated a lot of hype about the power of technology to solve the deep problems of poverty. In this talk, I will (1) present several myths of ICT4D that persist despite evidence to the contrary, (2) offer a theory of "technology as amplifier" which explains the gap between rhetoric and actuality, and (3) provide one key recommendation for successful ICT4D interventions. My hope is to temper the brash claims of technology with realism about its true potential."

Keywords. HCI, Development communication, Rhetoric, Myths, ICT4D
