Background Falls are common in older adults and can result in serious injuries. Due to demographic changes, falls and related healthcare costs are likely to increase over the next years. Participation and motivation of older adults in fall prevention measures remain a challenge. The iStoppFalls project developed an information and communication tec...
Article
Full-text available
Falls and their consequences are arguably most important events for transition from independent living to institutional care for older adults. Information and communication technology (ICT)-based support of fall prevention and fall risk assessment under the control of the user has a tremendous potential to, over time, prevent falls and reduce assoc...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This demo focuses supplements our paper "From Computational Thinking to Computation Making" to allow visitors to interact with the various technologies the children in our club created, including an interactive monster. Additionally, to make the demo interactive and to encourage conference attendees to discuss their experience of "making" we will h...
Conference Paper
Computational thinking is considered best practice for teaching computing and more broadly to solve problems and design systems, however as computing extends beyond the desktop (for instance increased integration of ubicomp technologies) so too must our educational methods. Exposure to ubicomp technologies is most accessible through the maker movem...
Article

From the arts and craft movement (Dormer 1997) to today's DIY (Tanenbaum et al. 2013); from theoretical thinking about the significance of craft in relation to the making of art (Whittick 1984) and everyday design artifacts (Bean & Rosner 2012); crafting as innovation (Yair et al 2001), and crafting as remodeling and repairing (Tinari 2010): crafti...
Conference Paper
The study explores the positive impact for girls and young women from engaging in computer clubs, with regard to their vocational preparation as well as to their social empowerment. Our comparative study focuses on gender related barriers in a Palestinian refugee camp as well as an intercultural neighborhood in Germany and discusses how the compute...
Conference Paper
Come_IN computer clubs are an established approach to support inter-cultural and inter-generational learning in German neighborhoods. We explore the adaptation of the come_IN concept to the Palestinian context as a means to bridge the social and economic divide that has plagued West Bank society for a period of more than six decades. Social exclusi...

Cheaper and more prevalent 3D printing technology offers new and emerging opportunities for non-experts to make and produce their very own physical items and products. However, most 3D modeling software is still geared towards experts and not as inclusive as the printing technology itself. At the same time, tools are usually limited in their possib...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Declining motoric skills, along with visual impairment and other possible health deficiencies make life challenging for older adults, especially when they live independently at home. New suitable interaction paradigms need to be found to support this target group in ICT utilization, which will eventually have a positive impact on their quality of l...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The spread of the Internet has led to a change from a TV-childhood to a computer-childhood. We investigate how this shift towards networked forms of communication is reflected in constructionist learning environments and elaborate the concept of objects-to-think-with-together in the context of using computers as tool and social medium at the same t...
Article
Mädchen und junge Frauen waren und sind in der Informatik unterrepräsentiert. Das Phänomen hat tiefliegende Ursachen, die sich von der Wahl des Schulfachs über Ausbildungs- und Studienwege schließlich bis auf berufliche Karrieren erstrecken. Auf der Grundlage qualitativer empirischer Arbeiten an drei deutschen Gymnasien wurde ein Informatik-Curricu...
Conference Paper
Learning settings, methods as well as the lessons' contents in schools in Germany have undergone significant changes over the years, developing towards a more gender oriented way of teaching. Yet, the significant gap between girls' and boys' participation in computer science remains. Based on a qualitative study among female teenage students and th...

Underprivileged communities, though might have access to computers and the Internet, are facing the second digital divide. One reason for this seems to be the missing insight of why there is an actual need in user created content and its presentation in virtual collaborative places online. Splatch is an offline framework, supporting users in genera...

Former immigrant workers from Turkey have settled down in Germany. They have established communities within German cities. However, they are confronted with unequal opportunities. Differences in access and appropriation of computer technology may amplify the gap between the German Turkish minority and the mainstream society. We have tackled this pr...

Located in primary schools in Germany, the intercultural computer clubs come_IN offer a place for shared practice of children and adults. In socially and culturally diverse neighborhoods this brings together people with different backgrounds. In four characteristic examples we discuss, how group-oriented project work in the clubs may foster collabo...
