Our daily activities are constantly punctuated by digital notifications and interruptions. In this talk, I’ll present the outcomes of our research on understanding the design and use of digital interruptions. To investigate this, we have used different research methods and approaches, from controlled lab experiments, to situated observational studies, and online studies with crowdsourcing platforms. The results of this research give insights into how digital notifications and interruptions can be better designed to help people maintain focus and be more productive.
