Keeping “InTOUCH”: An Ongoing Co-design Project to Share Memories, Skills and Demands through an Interactive Table
We describe the first phases of an ongoing co-design project for a cooperative distributed space, based on multi-touch technologies, through which older adults engaged in the activities of recreational centres in their everyday contexts could keep in touch with others, for example other recreational centres, and with a general public. The project’s main goal is to foster the active participation of older people as producers of resources related to their experience and know-how and to the activities carried out in the centres, to be shared in a community context. The project aims to fulfill some seniors’ needs and wishes as “always learning new things”, “being with others” and “not staying at home”.
