Teenagers are sometimes difficult to engage in mean- ingful conversations. We introduce a user study with teenagers where we utilised Co-constructing Stories, a participatory design method using past and current experiences of users to stimulate their visions about a new concept. We argue that Co-Constructing Stories can be helpful when working with teenagers, if adapted to the mindset of that user group. We explain how we adapted the method while working with teenagers and give recommendations for designers who might use the same method with teenagers.
The LightScribe App is a social system that motivates teenagers to produce unique and beautiful pictures together with their friends. Only two or more smartphones are required. Users can share their results with friends, who can react with their own content or start a conversation. These shared experiences enable teenagers to become closer to their friends and feel good about themselves for getting some exercise while creating beautiful pictures. Real-world interaction, uniquely combined with online communities and sharing, makes the LightScribe App attractive and fun to use. You are invited to play!
