Title: Reading in the Digital Age - Tablet in the Reader 's Personal Information Environment Author: Mgr. Tomáš Bouda Abstract: In this dissertation thesis we observed the phenomenon of reading in the context of personal information environment in digital age. An analysis of the evolution of reading and its implication on reading habits has been done. Secondly, we introduced phenomenology approach to study reading phenomena. The goal of the qualitative research was to describe an experience of intensive tablet users while reading scientific literature in digital format. Interpretative phenomenological analyses and Positive and negative affect scale (PANAS) were used as research methods with six participants. Conceptual structure representing the phenomenon has been developed as an outcome. It contains a) broader context of personal information environment, b) reading, annotating and underlining of digital text and c) reading experience with a focus on somatosensory perception. Comparison with two similar research studies has been done. As a practical outcome, several weaknesses in a design of tablets and reading applications were identified.
Reader's perception of printed and displayed text

(in English): This thesis is conceived as a metareview of research on differences in perception, understanding and retention of text on various display media. It summarizes the results of the most interesting and most relevant research on this topic conducted since the 80s to the present. Even though it is difficult to summarize the results of individual studies, mainly because of differences in research methodology and differently chosen tested samples, we can say that the main finding of this metareview is that display technologies that are available these days have no negative effect on eye fatigue, reading speed, perception, understanding or retention of text. Theoretical part of this thesis is followed by practical part that consists of three short experiments performed on a small sample of participants. First of those experiments studies differences in reading comprehension and retention among high school students, second experiment focuses on differences in reading speed on different media and subjective evaluation of eye fatigue, and the third experiment is an online form about subjective preferences of study materials among learners.
Speed networking and Imagine the future: techniques to facilitate making the social innovations
Bouda, Tomáš
Každý nápad, strategie nebo proces, který cíleně podporuje kulturu, řeší otázky ekologie, vyzdvihuje roli zdraví nebo posiluje občanskou společnost, můžeme označit za sociální inovaci. Myslím si, že kromě tradičních služeb by knihovny měly akcentovat také tato témata. Ba co více, knihovny by měly podporovat vznik inovací pro společnost a měly by se stát jakýmisi odbornými facilitátory mezi jednotlivými zájmovými skupinami ve své lokalitě a komunitě. Knihovna by měla být schopna nabídnout bezpečné, ale překvapivé místo, kde panuje kreativní a přátelská atmosféra. To jsou podmínky pro vznik společenských inovací. Pokusím se vás přesvědčit, že knihovna by v těchto otázka měla vystupovat aktivisticky. V rámci přednášky si vyzkoušíme dvě techniky Bleskový networking a techniku Představme si budoucnost.
