Abstract

This article offers design implications based on previous research of laptop use in an educational setting. The students interaction with a laptop leave trails of documents, folders, chat logs, surf logs, saved passwords, e-mails etc. Drawing on research from Personal Information Management in general and research on Breadcrumbs of Interaction in particular a set of design implications regarding how to efficiently utilize this interaction trail is offered. We argue that the laptop may be used to assess educational activities and visualize pathways to conclusions as long as the students are in control and can build an intimate relationship with the technology. The idea of the laptop as portfolio in it self provide a new perspective on the utility of laptop use.
