  • [the purpose of the following slides is to draw the attention of the audience to the issue of communicating and keeping in touch, thus, later on, establishing Go-myLIFE as the easiest way of keeping in touch with friends, family, community...] Not using communication technologies today means that you are left outside of the circle. At this point you may address the participants and ask them to give names of communication means that they use (land line phones, mobile phone, postcards, emails, etc). Next on, we will talk a little bit about how people used to keep in touch throughout the history.

  • Anecdote 1: the first pigeon was used to pass news of the Olympic games winner to the people of Athens Anecdote 2: The Spanish army kept its fleet of messenger pigeons until 2009!
  • Some of these tools we use so frequently that we can no longer imagine our lives without them!
  • Computers and mobile phones are popular and widely accepted and used. At this point you can ask who uses a mobile phone and who uses a computer. Then ask who has grandchildren who use this technology. Now, let’s see what we can do with each of these tools... Take time to explain what social networking is an internet service that provides ways for persons to interact with others: you can exchange messages, discuss in a group, share photos and more. You can use it to keep in touch with your friends and family, but also to make new friends! [the purpose is to create awareness to the functions these tools support, but also to the ones around us who use them]
  • When we combine computers and mobile phones together, we get smart phones. Smart phones are quite new, but their popularity is growing rapidly. It is a phone that can also be used as a computer: it is always connected and available (unless you run out of battery!). It is quite amazing for such a little device! With smart phones we can do everything we mentioned in the last slide (go back to the slide if needed) and more! Explain the concept of location aware services . This is a service which allows you to view information on your mobile phone which is relevant to your location. This can be a service that shows your location on the city map and allows you to search for the nearest library , for example, or for the shortest way to get to a friend’s house. This can also be a device that gives you the weather forecast for your location. At this point you can ask the audience if they can think of more services that can depend on location. Explain the idea of social networking through a mobile phone . Before smart phones, we needed to be in front of a computer in order to keep in touch with our friends and family. This meant we had to be at home, at work or at the library. Today, we can connect everywhere! Imagine that you are at a café with friends and suddenly you realise that you forgot you grandaugther’s birthday! She is now at school, so you cannot call her, but you CAN send her an electronic greeting card using your smart phone.
  • We know that these technologies are challenging to use, we sometimes feel the same ourselves!
  • Gomylife is a technology platform with an interface that is adapted to your needs and preferences, and allows you (the little person at the middle of the circle) to easily use social networks such as linkedin and facebook, and other popular services, like youtube (where you can watch videos), flickr (where you can share and view photos) and more. These are exactly the same services that your grandchildren use! With gomylife you will be able to keep in touch with them, on their favourite internet networks. You would be able to do that through a computer or a smart mobile phone. Do you have some friends living around your neighbourhood? Would like to get to make new friends in your neigborhood who share the same interests as you? Gomylife will offer you an easy way of finding old and new friends. But it doesn´t end only in the virtual world of the internet. With gomylife you can see when friends are nearby and invite them for a coffee! With Gomylife you can
  • But it doesn´t end only in the virtual world of the internet. Explain with some example: With gomylife you can see when friends are nearby and invite them for a coffee! With Gomylife you can invite your son-in-law living in town to enjoy a piano concert that you just saw in the msg board of the group “classic music” which you are a friend of (let’s assume you son-in-law is a big fan of classic music). [at this point you can ask them to offer more ideas – recommend a movie you saw to your grandchildren, let your son know that you are at the bank next to his office in case he feels like having lunch together, etc...]
  • [this can be read up loud. You can event print it out and ask for volunteers from the group to read it to everyone. The idea is to clearly demonstrate the interaction and benefits] This example speaks about Teresa, but she is only an example. You and the people around you – family, friends, neighbours and even the nice lady from the community centre – will be able to enjoy Go-myLife.
  • We talked about the history of communication starting from the age of homing pigeons and reaching all the way to computers, internet, mobile phones and smart phones We saw that keeping in touch becomes more complicated with new tools We presented Go-myLife as the way for you to enjoy new technologies and keep in touch with loved ones no matter where you are

    14. 14. A glimpse into Teresa´s diary: another day in life, or… a day with Go-myLife! 2010 . This morning Teresa (61) felt terrible. A year ago she retired from working at the elementary school. She’s devoted 30 years to her little students and loved her job very much. She couldn’t find her place. Boring days looked the same. Teresa stared to feel alienated. A year ago, just overnight, she felt like losing everything, felt helpless and insecure. Suddenly there were no more children around her, no classes, no noise…Well there is her husband but Adam is sick and needs assistance and to tell you the truth he is not a good listener, something teachers love. 2014 . Teresa (65) feels so happy today. It seems to be a cheerful morning; one of her students is on his way to meet with her. She had no idea about Piotr’s life but remembered him as a good student and liked him very much. As a matter of fact it is Piotr who found her through facebook. Teresa had no idea about how to handle new technologies but a year ago she got a smartphone for her birthday. Her best friend, Maria, taught her how to use Go-myLife interface, and since that moment Teresa is using it everywhere and on any possible occasion. With no difficulties she started profiles on facebook and twitter and to her amazement made new friends but also found old ones. And this is how Piotr found her. This will be a fine day for Teresa.
    15. 15. Summary <ul><li>We talked about the history of keeping in touch </li></ul><ul><li>We saw that keeping in touch might become complicated as new tools evolve </li></ul><ul><li>We presented Go-myLife as the way for you to enjoy new technologies and keep in touch with loved ones, no matter where you are </li></ul><ul><li>We talked about Teresa, a future user of Go-myLife who is quite happy with the change in her life </li></ul>
