Computers in reminiscing: a case study on card- based versus device-based reminiscing using photographic images

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper describes the growing demographic of older people, outlines the concept of reminiscing and presents a case study on card-based versus device- based (Apple iPad) reminiscing using photographic images. Nineteen older people participated in this study and results show that there is no significant difference between traditional and device based reminiscing of photographic images. The authors’ position on reminiscing focuses primarily on helping to understand people's current practices around reminiscing, supported by empirical studies and theories of memory that might inform technology designs.
