Do you enjoy family crafting activities at home?
We are looking for families who would like to explore crafting with internet-connected materials. Our research explores whether crafting with these materials is a good way to experiment with smart technologies for at home, and whether all family members are involved in this practise. If you are interested, here is a rough setup of what the research study would look like:
- One of our researchers (David Verweij) will visit you to bring a crafting kit and one Google Home Mini. During this visit, we will:
- After the first visit, we leave you with the crafting kit for 8 weeks.
- During these 8 weeks, we will ask you to send diary entries whenever you use the crafting kit. This will be something towards a photo and/or text via WhatsApp, E-mail or something similar.
- During the 9th week, the researcher will visit again, to pick up the crafting kits, and to have another short interview to hear about your experiences. Here we will give you a £25,- Amazon voucher.
Here is a rough overview of the weeks, assuming we start in the week of the 11th of March (which is in consultation with you).
Because we will bring the craft kits personally, we are looking for families living in Newcastle or Gateshead. There is no requirement for family composition, other than at least one child aged between 8 – 18. If you might be interested, please drop me a line – without obligations – at email@example.com. You can also contact me if you have any other questions or suggestions!
