Are you ready for the the exciting announcement I alluded to last week? Well, here it is!
I am now recruiting participants to take part in my online survey. Full details can be found below (lifted from my recruitment leaflet). Please share far and wide, and I hope you enjoy the experience if you decide to take part.
This opportunity is part of a research project exploring how augmented reality could help people living with dementia at home. Augmented reality allows digital content to be seen on top of the real world and has the potential to build on previous work exploring how task prompting can be helpful for people living with dementia. For example, augmented reality might be able to help people to complete tasks by showing them a visual cue of how the objects need to be manipulated in order to achieve that task, like moving something from one area to another. Your participation in this study will help us understand user perceptions of the augmented reality visual cues we have developed.
Who is eligible to take part?
You can take part if you are 18 years or older and do not have a diagnosis of dementia.
If you have a diagnosis of dementia and wish to take part, there may be other opportunities to participate in this research project. Please contact Thomas using the details below.
If you have a visual impairment that means you cannot easily watch videos online, then you are not able to take part because the survey involves commenting on the visual aspects of multiple videos.
What does the study involve?
You will be asked to watch a number of videos and answer open-ended questions about what you see by typing your answers. The videos will contain content such as what you can see in the picture below. After watching all of the videos, there will be a final set of questions about all of the videos. The survey will take between 20 and 40 minutes to complete.
What do participants get for taking part in the study?
Participants have the option of entering a prize draw to win one of two £25 cash prizes. You will also have the chance to learn about an up-and-coming technology and how it could help people living with dementia.
The survey will be live from 3rd August to 24th August. The survey will be live from 26th January 2021*. You can complete it using the link below.
