English abstract:
By looking at autistic children as a user group, my PhD work seeks to reevaluate existing concepts of technological experiences and deepen the understanding of them. Along with a power analysis of the current discour-sive limits surrounding the use of technol-ogies by autistic children, I establish a sys-tematic methodological tool set based on Actor-Network Theory (ANT) and Critical Dis-course Analysis (CDA). It allows researches to assess experiences with technologies in a multi-faceted and more holistic way than previous concepts, which allows research into user experience to better consider its situated context and allowing autistic children to actively co-construct the meaning surrounding their use of technologies. Through a series of case studies, some of them including participatory evaluation methods, I show the feasibility of this approach.
