520    The shift in the practice of human-computer interaction 
       (HCI) Design from user-centered to context-based design 
       marks a significant change in focus. With context-based 
       design, designers start not with a preconceived idea of 
       what users should do, but with an understanding of what 
       users actually do. Context-based design focuses on the 
       situation in which the technology will be used -- the 
       activities relating to it and their social contexts. 
       Designers must also realize that introduction of the 
       technology itself changes the situation; in order to 
       design workable systems, the design process must become 
       flexible and adaptive. In Activity-Centered Design, Geri 
       Gay and Helene Hembrooke argue that it is time to develop 
       new models for HCI design that support not only research 
       and development but also investigations into the context 
       and motivation of user behavior. Gay and Hembrooke examine
       the ongoing interaction of computer systems use, design 
       practice, and design evaluation, using the concepts of 
       activity theory and related methods as a theoretical 
       framework. Among the topics they discuss are the 
       reciprocal relationship between the tool and the task, how
       activities shape the requirements of particular tools and 
       how the application of the tools begins to reshape the 
       activity; differing needs and expectations of participants
       when new technology is introduced, examining in particular
       the integration of wireless handheld devices into museums 
       and learning environments; and the effect of the layout of
       the computing space on movement, function, and social 
       interaction. Gay and Hembrooke then apply their findings 
       on the use of technology in everyday contexts to inform 
       future HCI design practice.
