100 Points – Demands on Technology Design - Digital


The design of technology and the resulting technological development often just seems to happen. We sometimes forget that technology design is determined by individuals making certain decisions on a basis of well-defined criteria. This building block invites participants to reflect upon criteria they find important when designing technology. They compare their demands and the currently most dominant criteria for technology design. This leads to the following question: Who can actually participate in the design process and how can we find compromises when demands conflict?

There are numerous and frequently conflicting demands on technology which are rarely pointed out clearly. As they are determined by habit, tradition and cultural customs the design process of technology is confusing and hard to understand. Often it is not even possible to tell who is promoting which demands for technological devices, processes and systems.

Participants come up with a set of values for technology design. Then they weigh them by distributing 100 points among their values. In this way, implicit demands are revealed. The participants become aware of their personal prioritisation regarding criteria for technology design and the conflicts that may arise between their personal demands and those of others.
