Making a Difference – ludic artefacts to promote playfulness.

DSC01556A massive congratulations to Dr. Cathy Treadaway who has just been awarded funding from OPAN (Older People & Ageing Research & Development Network) to scope the project ‘Making a Difference – ludic artefacts to promote playfulness.’

The purpose of the RDG is to scope a project to investigate how new technologies and smart materials can be used to extend individual experience of creative playful activity for the elderly. The project is already gaining momentum with our first workshop due to be held at Swansea University as a part of the OPAN ‘Coming of Age’ project on Friday the 31st of May.
