 +# Theme 5 
 +### Co-designing with a clear purpose will improve usability and relevance of digital technology later in life
 +Although its clear that we shouldnt simply use age as a starting point
 +for designing interventions,​ there are some specific usability
 +requirements that become apparent at different life stages. There are
 +already a range of projects, tools and resources that can be useful for
 +people later in life - but the challenge is to ensure they are actually
 +usable and relevant. Working with a range of people of different ages,
 +interests and circumstances should enable us to achieve that in the
 +redesign of existing hardware and software tools, or the create of new
 +products and projects.
 +We expand on these issues in provocations 1,2 3, 5 - and suggest in 10
 +that those who are providing training and support will have many
 +insights and insights that could provide a good starting point.
