Grandma's Trunk : Break the ice! Cross-Generational collaborative games

Project by

Project Year 
2012
Grandma’s Trunk allows grandparents and their children to share media over long distances. The pain point Grandma’s Trunk seeks to address is the alienation that grandchildren feel toward grandparents due to the fact that grandparents are usually not around their grandchildren much during the child’s early developmental stage. Grandma’s Trunk uses multimedia based sharing to break the ice and warm children to their grandparents. Grandparents and children work together to make online projects that allow them to learn from each other, get familiar with one another and share a connection in the virtual space.
