“Shared mobile displays and their use in a museum setting”

 

We conducted an exploratory study that examines the use of shared mobile displays such as mobile projectors and tablets to support group activities at the museum. We compare how a small group of visitors use either a shared display or personal individual devices in a museum visit context, in both a navigation and a media viewing task. Group proximity, decision making, leadership patterns, and interaction between group members as well as attitudes are analyzed. Results show how mobile shared displays can support and enhance the group experience, by providing a shared mobile environment. Mobile shared displays increase group cohesiveness as was shown by increased proximity and amount of discussion by participants. Users perceive the use of shared displays as both useful and enjoyable, with the caveat that many users still want to retain individual control.
