A 3 days #PersuasiveWorkshop is over - description of the idea, video and photos

The theme of the workshop was the use of technology to tackle loneliness. The tablets can be put on the desks in a pub (bar, coffe shop) and people can start collaborative tasks across desks by inviting other tables into these tasks such as:

  • chat with people sitting at different tables (e.g. people who come alone to a pub can start a conversation with someone if they are shy)
  • draw together on a collaborative canvas
  • play games such as hangman (person playing with another person sitting at a different table or table of friends playing with another group sitting at another table)
  • collaborative task where several tables try to complete a task for a reward (e.g. if a quiz is successfully finished all participants get a voucher, free coffe or something similar).
