The development and design of computational artefacts and their widespread use in diverse contexts must take into account end-users needs, likes/dislikes and broader societal issues, including human values. However, the fast pace of technological developments highlight that the process of defining computational artefacts must incorporate not only the user but also the engineers and designers’ creativity. Considering these issues, in this article, the authors explore the adoption of the Worth-Centred Design framework to develop efforts regarding situated digital public displays. The authors discuss current efforts to extend the adoption of this framework, focus on enriching the understanding of potential places for situated digital displays and stakeholders’ views, and encourage open participation and co-creation.
