SCOPE

It is widely accepted that social interaction promotes a sense of wellbeing and belonging, which can have a direct impact on people’s life expectancy. In fact, the health risks of social isolation have been compared to smoking, alcoholism, and not exercising. However, as we age and our life circumstances change, it can become increasingly difficult to maintain our social networks. This workshop concerns the use of ICT-enabled services to support interactions with existing contacts, as well as to forge new networks. In particular, the workshop aims to explore opportunities to leverage social interaction as a means of motivating users, such as older people, who are typically disengaged from the use of ICT.

Topics: User Experience, Co-Experience, Social Interaction Design, Inclusive Design, Service Design, Persuasive Technology
