Touch technologies as tools for analysis and structuring of concepts

This presentation looked at the use of touch technologies software such as VUE – Virtual Understanding Environment (http://vue.tufts.edu/) and Notebook (http://smarttech.com/us/Support/Browse+Support/Download+Software) as tools for analysis and structuring of concepts, eg. in relation to development of taxonomies, thesauri, or classification systems. She compared pros and cons, and compared the touch technology tools to more traditional design tools such as card sorting. Among the advantages are that the participants can all move and organize while they are discussing, working with several screens and conceptual designs, and – not least – the fact that participants can touch and use their fingers instead of a mouse to effect the creative process of analyzing concepts and relationships.
