Interactive Gaming for Seniors

event date: 
Sunday, 7 October 2018 - 10:30am to 11:30am

Video games are first and foremost a form of entertainment, however they can do more than just entertain. Games can also be used as tools for positive aging by providing easily-accessible social platforms, increasing mental alertness and help fight dementia by engaging in problem solving, increasing mobility for more active games and also help grandparents build positive relationships with their children and grandchildren.

Join local tech expert Justin Williams from iXplainIT at the WAG for a dedicate seniors gaming session held as part of the ACMI Code Breakers: Women in Games currently on show at the gallery. This interactive session will guide you through a range of games and de-mystify access and play them. Suitable for all ages and for all experience levels. Topics will include:

  • App stores
  • Explanation of consoles
  • Social interaction
  • Dementia and keeping the mind active
  • Exercise
