Abstract in Undetermined

In this paper we describe and reflect upon a novel methodology using attention cards to facilitate communication, concentration and creativity in a user requirement workshop with seniors. Previous research indicates that seniors tend to lose focus and start cross talking during workshops, which results in broad and shallow findings. However, our findings indicate that the use of attention cards helps the seniors to stay focused by visualizing concrete first person narrative scenarios. The results suggest that the framework of the workshop encourage focused attention, positive feelings and openness to new things as well as generating narrow, rich and deep findings.
