Dear Design Lab Friends, Colleagues, and Supporters,

Thank you for being such a loyal part of the Design Lab and our Design Community! We could not be where we are without all of your support. It’s been an amazing journey these past few years.  Together we have helped build the foundation and backbone of a strong, vibrant design ecosystem in our region and joined the global community dedicated to bettering our world through design-driven innovation.

Now on UC San Diego Giving Day we are asking for your help!

Through the integration of education, research and community development, The Design Lab is committed to advancing the best practices needed to solve the world’s complex problems through the lens of human-centered design.  One way we do this is through our thriving Design@Large speaker series.  Via conversations with distinguished academic, industry, and community design leaders, Design@Large showcases the ever-evolving, interdisciplinary nature of design as applied in real world contexts.  Today we are asking for your specific help to continue to build and grow this popular series which is open to all.

Thank you for showing your support of the growing design ecosystem on campus and in our region by making a contribution, sharing one of our social media posts, and spreading the word.  At certain levels of support, you also will receive a personalized note from Don Norman and be listed as a premier supporter for Design@Large.

Let’s change the world together!

Seniors Technology

More Seniors Are Embracing Technology. But Can They Use It? UCSD Researchers Suggest Asking Them.

We’re told older adults are embracing technology more than ever. And there’s no doubt that inventors in the digital space are scrambling to find ways to market their platforms and tools to them. (Think high tech wearables that monitor everything from blood pressure to daily steps taken, screen magnification, talk-to-text and even assistive domotics and home robots.) Still we all know at least one older person who can barely text let alone maneuver mobile apps. So while they may be purchasing laptops, smart phones and tablets and all of the possibilities they intend, many older adults say they still don't feel confident about using them.
