Digital Collaging with Boomers

After our adventures in generative research at Vintage Senior Center, we realized that the sort of work we were asking of the seniors might be best conducted with Boomers. To get a quick start with this generative research and also just to experiment and see if it might work, we created this remote collaging toolkit. And piloted it with a few Boomers.

This worked surprisingly well. It was quick, and both men and women could respond to it. While I’m not taking for granted that this sort of activity can duplicate physical in-person collaging or other methods, it’s nice to know that you can get some good information from far away. We plan to continue with this method over spring break and synthesize findings when we have a few more to look at.
