Abstract [sv]

Detta kandidatexamensarbete har undersökt hur Officewalker påverkat koncentration och fokus vid intag av ny information. Studien har studerat 18 deltagare från medieteknikprogrammet på KTH som läst läsdelar från högskoleprovet gåendes och sittandes medan deltagarnas hjärnaktivitet registrerades med hjälp av en simplifierad EEG-scanner. Deltagarna delades in i två grupper, där första gruppen läste läsdel 1 gåendes och läsdel 2 sittandes och andra gruppen läste läsdel 1 sittandes och läsdel 2 gåendes. Datainsamling har skett via EEG-registrering, kontrollfrågor för att mäta förståelse av läsdelarna samt en avslutande enkät om studien i helhet. Resultaten visade att flest deltagare föredrog att gå men majoriteten av deltagarna kände sig mest fokuserade sittandes. Deltagarna tyckte det kändes ovant och svårare att koncentrera sig när de gick och läste men också att det medförde en piggare känsla. Majoriteten av deltagarna upplevde att sitta och läsa som tråkig. Studiens slutsats är att Officewalker​kan​bidra till ökad koncentration och fokus vid intag av ny information, samt att gåband kan vara en möjlig arbetsform i framtiden. Trots att en majoritet hos deltagarna upplevde Officewalker vara mindre fokuserande visade denna studie resultat från kontrollfrågorna som antydde på motsatsen, vilket också bekräftar studiens hypotes men inga statistiska slutsatser kan dras. 

Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay has been to investigate how Officewalker have affected concentration and focus while intake of new information. The study examined 18 participants from the media technology program at KTH who read parts of Högskoleprovet while walking and sitting, wearing a simplified EEG scanner, recordning the participants brainactivity. Participants were divided into two groups, the first group read reading part 1 while walking and read reading part 2 sitting, the second group read reading part 1 sitting and reading part 2 walking. Data was collected through EEG-recordings, questionnaires to measure the understanding of the reading parts and a final survey to understand how the participants felt during the study. Results show that most participants preferred to walk and read but the majority of the participants felt most focused reading while sitting. Participants thought it felt awkward and had a harder time to concentrate when they were walking and reading but also that walking and reading led to a more alert feeling. The majority of participants experienced reading while sitting as boring. The study concludes that Officewalker c​an​increase concentration and focus while intake of new information, and that Officewalker is possible workform in the future. Although a majority of participants experienced Officewalker to be less focusing, results from the control questions suggested the opposite, which also confirms the hypothesis of the study. But the study can not draw any statistical conclusions.
