Participatory Design (PD) is inherently concerned with inquiring into and supporting human values when designing IT. We argue that a PD approach that is led by a focus upon participants’ values can allow participants to discover meaningful alternatives – alternative uses and alternative conceptualizations for IT that are particularly meaningful to them. We illustrate this through a PD case study whereby participants were encouraged to discover, articulate and imagine their values with respect to their practices. By supporting their on-going dialogue with these values with respect to the design aim, we show how this resulted not only in a designed artifact that is respectful of participants’ practices but it also allowed them to rethink the role of technology within their lives.
