Information Technology for Active Ageing: A Review of Theory and Practice
With the goal of designing applications for the social support of elderly we have followed a Participatory Design (PD) approach in the design of an application for supporting reminiscing activities. Four PD workshops were conducted to explore how reminiscence takes place and progressively co-design an application for its support. The demo allows the user to experiment our reminiscence application, which is the result of the PD process. This accompanying paper presents a brief description of the PD experience, the design choices it inspired and a reflection on the overall process.
