Encountering Development Ethnographically

N Sambasivan, N Rangaswamy, K Toyama, and B Nardi

Abstract

HCI for Development (HCI4D) lies at the intersection of Information Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D) and Human-computer Interaction (HCI). The mainstream HCI community creates user experiences for the developed-world consumer, while ICT4D is concerned about creating relevant technologies for developing nations. Their fusion—HCI4D—evolved and re-aligned goals to design user experiences for a new audience, namely populations living in contexts of low rates of telecom diffusion and digital literacy.
