    Dear gamers,


    Intergenerational segregation has become a social norm. Factors such as extended families living apart, divorce and family disputes, and the rise of pension-supported retirements, have all led to fewer opportunities for intergenerational interactions. Playing digital games together creates a leisure context for common goals, cooperation and equal status that are key factors for successful intergroup interactions.
    Our research team is conducting an online study to understand the features of intergenerational play between old adults aged 55+ and young family members aged 15 and 30. This study is financially supported by one of the eight National Centres of Excellence (NCE) work projects as part of a large NCE grant from 2015-2020 for $36.6 million (AGE-WELL | Canada's technology and aging network).


    If you are aged 55 and over, and have played digital games with your young family members (e.g., children, grandchildren, nephews, and nieces) , please click the following URL link to complete the online survey:Intergenerational Play-Older Adults
