In Europe, the demographic trend is towards an increasingly aging workforce (Poscia et al., 2016), which leads to a growing interest in the topic of active-healthy aging in academia, industry and organization. The new working methods introduced by technological advancement, including smart working, have required the rapid acquisition of new professional skills, resulting in difficulties in adapting especially for older workers. Therefore, there is a need to develop solutions that can improve the inclusion of older smart workers and reduce the digital divide. Tangible user interfaces (TUI) could help address this challenge, as they give physical form to digital information and facilitate the direct manipulation of bits, with considerable ease of use. The research project presented aims to develop TUIs-based devices to encourage the interaction of older smart workers with the digital world through a tactile experience, improve organization, promote work-life balance, and increase physical and mental well-being.

Abstract

In Europe, the demographic trend is towards an increasingly aging workforce (Poscia et al., 2016), which leads to a growing interest in the topic of active-healthy aging in academia, industry and organization. The new working methods introduced by technological advancement, including smart working, have required the rapid acquisition of new professional skills, resulting in difficulties in adapting especially for older workers. Therefore, there is a need to develop solutions that can improve the inclusion of older smart workers and reduce the digital divide. Tangible user interfaces (TUI) could help address this challenge, as they give physical form to digital information and facilitate the direct manipulation of bits, with considerable ease of use. The research project presented aims to develop TUIs-based devices to encourage the interaction of older smart workers with the digital world through a tactile experience, improve organization, promote work-life balance, and increase physical and mental well-being.
