Abstract

This study explored whether interactions differed between dyads working on multitouch screens of different sizes. Dyads solved a scientific mystery on 11”, 27” and 80” multitouch tabletops. Video analysis indicated differences in the quality of interactions, types of reasoning, the time needed to propose an evidence-based solution, and the actions associated with the screen between pairs in each condition. Results indicated that the 27” screen size was most suitable for this type of task.
