Abstract

We present an initial research framework for the contextual study of mobile knowledge work that combines automatic, objective data collection from smartphone sensors with subjective participant self-reported data possibly complemented with researcher conducted interviews. The framework shows how raw sensor data, contextual information inferred from the sensor data, both in real-time and post hoc, can be used in tandem with smartphone administered questionnaires and post hoc in-depth interviews to study mobile knowledge work. We evaluate the framework by reporting some early experiences from a pilot study of mobile knowledge work.
