Diana Saplacan, Jo Herstad, Zada Pajalic
We illustrate in this paper some of the negative emotions experienced by students when interacting with digital systems in learning situations, where there is a lack of feedback, or the interaction with digital systems is faulty. The emotions are classified here as feelings of: neglection, frustration, uncertainty, need for confirmation, and discomfort. We proposed thereafter two solutions. The first solution focuses on the design of digital feedback from a system which should arouse positive emotions. We discuss this in relation to universal design principle 5, tolerance for error...

The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework emphasizes multiplicity of representation, expression and engagement to cater for the widest possible set of learning styles and abilities. Digital Game Based Learning (DGBL) can slot into a universally designed approach to education as one of several alternative ways of learning that will suit some learning preferences, such as those who prefer to learn in an active way. However, DGBL can itself encapsulate the principles of UDL if the game designer embraces UDL as a fundamental set of game design principles...

Kristin S Fuglerud, Ivar Solheim
A number of studies have found that robots can contribute to engagement and motivation in educational settings. We wanted to explore the possibilities and challenges of using a social robot as an assistive tool for learning and training of basic concepts and words. Robots are considered promising tools in language training because they can contribute to systematic interaction and repetition. A prototype was developed using an Aldebaran NAO robot combined with pictures that could be presented on a tablet, PC or on the wall using a projector...

Janette Hughes, Lauren Fridman, Jennifer Robb
Through this ethnographic study, the researchers investigate the efficacy of using "makerspace" pedagogies with students who are identified as having special needs. These pedagogies include the transferable skills and global competencies as outlined by the Ontario Ministry of education. The research questions address how teachers view changes in his/her special education students' behaviour and learning based on their participation in maker-related activities, including, but not limited to coding, programmable robots, and circuits, in the classroom...

One of the major goals of Universal Design is to create experiences that are inclusive to all users, including those affected by Color Vision Deficiency. Color Vision Deficiency might have a significant impact on a users' perception of the content or the environment. There is a range of tools already available, that can be used to either aid or automate the process of readability testing for digital interfaces and content in respect to Color Vision Deficiency. Two different approaches to addressing this issue can be found...

Access to our buildings relies to the accessibility of its external environment and the route taken. Developments and planning in urban areas has many several requirements and restrictions. Planning accessibility for Malaysian built environment is achievable by designing in compliance to the requirements enforced by authorities. Accessible design is commonly associated with providing facilities for Persons with Disabilities (PwDs), the issue that is often brought up is the inaccessibility of the external environment and lacking of seamless connectivity between buildings and the outdoor...

Delfín Jiménez, Yolanda de la Fuente, Jesús Hernández-Galán
Traditionally, pedestrians were identified as singular entities with standard needs. Reality shows us that pedestrian diversity is a reality that is becoming increasingly complex. How does urban design face the changing reality of pedestrian typologies? In the same way that in the 20th century the car set aside horse carriages and pedestrians, in the 21st century pedestrians are returning to take centre stage with regard to motor vehicles, but with new formalizations that imply new considerations in the design of streets, many of they are still unsolved...

This study proposed Importance-Performance Analysis (IPA) as a tool to elicitate the requirements of elderly to age well and improve the accessibility of home environments. It aims to address the accessibility issues in a case housing environment and provide guidance and design recommendations to designers and architects, who generally have difficulty to obtain information on universally designed housing environments. First, healthy aging concept is introduced. Then, the role of housing accessibility in healthy aging is explored...

Within the coming years considerable resources will be spent on designing assisted living facilities for elderly people with dementia. Traditionally care homes are designed for elderly with physical impairment. However, people with dementia have others and supplementary needs. An important challenge is therefore to identify differences and similarities in what makes supportive, pleasant environments for both groups. As the group of people with Alzheimer's disease is numerous, this paper focuses on characteristics related to Alzheimer's - typically difficulties related to orientation, coping with larger groups of residential units and a lack of ability to handle welfare technology...

This paper shows the complexity of housing and how it is the linch-pin for achieving economic, social and human rights imperatives. In Australia there are no minimum housing standards; the effect is now critical. In October 2017, a regulatory impact assessment was instructed, to consider Livable Housing Australia's Silver and Gold standards, for inclusion in the National Construction Code. A substantial research project provided a knowledge and evidence base of the policy perspective; an expanded statistical context; and detailed analyses of Silver, Gold and Platinum design levels...

The demand for accessible housing is increasing. More people are expected to live longer and live more years with reduced functional capacity in ordinary multi-family housing. To address this, detailed knowledge of accessibility problems in the existing housing stock and systems that could contribute to efficient collaboration between housing industry and authorities concerned is needed. This paper introduces a project with the overarching aim to develop and evaluate a new decision support system (DSS) to inventory and support decision-making for improved accessibility in multi-family housing in Sweden...

With the global trend of population ageing, efforts are in progress in many countries to cope with the problems associated with it. As one grows older, his/her capabilities gradually deteriorate. What need to be done to mitigate mismatch of dwelling design, and to enable age-in-place? A comparative study of design guidelines in Japan, UK and USA is conducted to find out challenges and opportunities we are faced with. In Japan, design guidelines for the ageing society were proposed in the early 1990s, and they have been used ever since in several contexts...

Margaret Ward, Jane Bringolf
In Australia, the last frontier for universal design is mainstream housing. Developers in the private residential sector have consistently, and successfully, argued for the status quo to remain. Developers' claims of cost and lack of demand have swayed governments that are in favor of "letting the market decide". Disability- and age-specific housing and one-off projects have included many features that are considered universal design. So, the technical details are not an issue. The house-building sector in Australia consists of many parts, all held together by regulations and professional codes and norms of practice...

Nazem Fawzi Al-Mansoor
As a public building, a mosque (or any prayer area for Muslims in public buildings) should remove all barriers that may confront persons with disabilities and hinder them from performing their religious rituals. A mosque is regularly used at least five times a day for praying, and for weekly events such as Jumu'ah (Friday prayers). Therefore, a mosque should be accessible for all. But in fact, persons with disabilities still find difficulties in accessing mosques. For example, the calling to prayer and Friday sermon (Khutba) through loudspeakers, is a problem for persons with hearing loss...

Yoshito Dobashi, Nobuaki Ohmori
Since after the enactment of a series of accessible laws, accessibility in public spaces in Japan has improved. Many creative initiatives have also been introduced in addition to these conventional facilities. In Sapporo, the city introduced a "special seat system" to the subway instead of the more common "priority seats." In Fukuoka, the local transportation bureau introduced a Braille block with wheelchair crossing points so that wheelchair users could cross them with ease when boarding the train...

Providing quality services to any traveller requires constant efforts to ensure that tourist destinations, products, and services are accessible to all people, regardless of their health condition, physical limitations, gender, origin, age. This entails a collaborative process among all the interested parties: administrators, tourist agencies, tour operators, and end users, who expressing their points of view can objectively contribute to reach shared and effective solutions. A single visit destination can involve many factors, including access to information: the project A Region for All, promoted by Promoturismo FVG in collaboration with CRAD FVG and the University of Trieste, focused on this issue...
