Work Practices, Nomadicity and the Mediational Role of Technology
Optional Fields
One of the key characteristics of such forms of work, and particularly information work, is the potential for nomadic practices, since workers mainly deal with something that can be represented digitally and taken to or accessed from different locations. Beside the development and evaluation of computer technologies for nomadicity, studies within this frame also pay attention to issues such as the use and management of different technologies available for different contexts of interaction and different activities. The second frame one identifies abstracts the use of technologies and the practices involved in nomadicity into a nomadic strategy. Researchers adopting this position pay attention not only to the structured work activities that people have to perform and get paid for, but also to all the activities they need to complete in order to mobilize their work and to get work accomplished in and across different locations.
