Since 2012 we have explored, with Nominet Trust and then Age Action Alliance, the importance of digital technology for older people, particularly in relation to personal wellbeing and the challenges of loneliness and social isolation.
We helped design and run a major simulation, hosted by the Centre, at which 50 people from the ageing field played through how digital tech and network thinking could benefit older people, represented by six personas.
Mapping and development of networks underpins a lot of our current work on localities as social ecosystems.
We have archived earlier sites that includes guides to community participation, partnerships, and networking
Living Lab The Living Lab is an evolving programme of workshops and online social reporting activities, led by David Wilcox and Drew Mackie, to explore how to use digital and other media in different settings - or ecosystems. In practice we often use a fictitious town called Slipham as the setting for the Lab, and then use insights to work “for real” on various projects.
Ageing Better Innovation The original home for an exploration into how innovations, enabled by digital technology, can help support personal well being, and services for ageing better. It builds on an earlier exploration carried out in 2012-13 for the Nominet Trust. The current exploration is being undertaken with the Digital Inclusion Group of the Age Action Alliance.
