This paper explores the involvement of young people in the design of mobile technologies that provide locative media experiences. The specific focus of this work was to understand how multiple devices (phones, tablets and smart watches) could be used within this context. Young people are prolific early adopters and users of mobile technologies. The motivation for involving your people was to gain insights into their ideas and preferences for multi-device usage within the context of locate media experiences. In this work we utilised a design technique specifically developed for use with young people in two design sessions. The designs were analysed in order to gather design insights for mobile technologies providing locative media experiences, and understand the use of multiple devices within the designs created. The key contributions of this work is design insights gathered from young people along with more general findings from running of the design sessions. © 2020, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
