          Abstract

          This paper focuses on the strategies employed during a pedestrian navigation task with a mobile device, and the implications for environmental engagement and learning. Twenty-four participants completed a short navigation task using GPS enabled Google Maps on a smart phone. Analysis of verbal protocols and glance behaviour were combined to suggest three broad strategy groups that users fall into when navigating with a mobile device. The results have implications for both environmental learning, and the design of future systems that are sensitive to both context and individual.

          The validity of verbal protocols.

          The reactivity of a "think aloud" verbal protocol and the veridicality of different retrospective protocols were tested over four dissimilar tasks. Generating a concurrent protocol altered accuracy in two tasks, simple addition and a choice between two gambles, and generally prolonged response times. Such reactivity partially qualifies the dominant theory of protocol generation (Ericsson & Simon, 1984). Retrospective protocols yielded substantial forgetting or fabrication in all tasks, supporting the consensus on the nonveridicality of these methods. It is concluded that protocol validity should be based on an empirical check rather than on theory-based assurances.
