  • Dome (Morning and Afternoon):
           Activities done:

    • This day we reformulated our main opportunity;
    • Definition of three new personas;
    • Definition of solutions;
    • Team coaching with professor Constanza.
    • Opportunity reformulated:

      Take advantage of experience of the elderly to re-wire them in the contemporary society, by using a collective and participatory practices of technology teaching

    • Possible solutions:
      1. Create an interactive platform that visualizes the data of experiences provided by elders. Connected to a digital literacy program. Exchanging their experience for learning technology.
      2. Use community spaces for the development of low technology projects, which can be used by young and old. Connected with a platform/manual that gives instructions and challenges. Allowing also share their constructions online.
      3. Game-day: creating a day where elders and young can learn while entertain with games.

  • Dome:
    Activities done:

    • Finding other solution to present;
    • How to represent them graphically;
    • Pitch “pré-presentation” of Jesus for feedback purposes;
  • Puc Lab:
    Activities done:

    • Reverse Engineering Lab: for this activity we deconstruct two objects a VHS tape and a remote control.



      Our final conclusion about this activity:

      About the remote control, we saw that it’s an ergonomic object and its structure is simple. The part to put the batteries is easy to open and, in the inside, it has electronic components.

      The VHS tape has a more complex structure inside, but in the outside is very simple and robust. It has more pieces and don’t have electronic components.

      Understanding the structure of old objects, gives us  some insights that can helps us to build a new low tech object to be used by elders. It has to be simple, easy to use and be functional.

    • We went to the Dome in order to prepare a file to about the Reverse Engineering class.
