Vita

David Struzek arbeitet als wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter am Lehrstuhl für Wirtschaftsinformatik an der Universität Siegen im Bereich „IT für die alternde Gesellschaft“. Seit dem 1.6. koordiniert er das Forschungsprojekt Acitve City Innovations an der Universität Siegen, das sich unter anderem mit dem Thema „Freude und Bewegung im öffentlichen Raum“ beschäftigt. Zudem unterstützt im Projekt Digi.DoM (www.digitale-dorfmitte.de) das Team bei der Einführung und Erforschung von Alltagstechnologien mit Schwerpunkt auf ältere DorfbewohnerInnen.

Der Schwerpunkt seiner Doktorarbeit behandelt das Thema „Smart Rural Areas“ aus der Perspektive der Sozialinformatik zur Förderung der gesellschaftlichen Teilhabe durch Technologie. David Struzek absolvierte seinen Master (M.Sc.) in Human Computer Interaction am gleichnamigen Lehrstuhl. Im Rahmen seiner Masterarbeit untersuchte er im BMBF-geförderten Forschungsprojekt „Cognitive Village“ die Entwicklung eines persuasiven Systems zur Bewegungssteigerung im Kontext der alternden Gesellschaft. Den Bachelor (B.Sc.) hat Herr Struzek an der TH Köln im Studiengang Medieninformatik erlangt. In seiner Bachelorarbeit beschäftigte sich in dem von der Universität Siegen durchgeführten Kooperationsprojekt „Hilfe, Rat & Tat für Mieterinnen und Mieter“ mit den Gestaltungsanforderungen mobiler Endgeräte für älterer Nutzerinnen und Nutzer.

Weiteres Forschungsinteresse hat Herr Struzek im Bereich Human-Computer-Interaction, User Experience, Usability & Accessibility und Creative Science. Weitere Erfahrungen sammelte Herr Struzek durch seine Selbstständig im Bereich Webdesign/-programmierung und Art Licensing.

Active City Innovation

Die Universität Siegen möchte in einem experimentalen Szenario mit dem Schwerpunkt „Tanz und Bewegungsfreude im öffentlichen Raum“ BürgerInnen der Stadt Siegen mit Hilfe technischer Alltagslösungen im öffentlichen Raum zum (gemeinsamen) Tanzen und Bewegen motivieren. Erfahrungen und Ergebnisse dieses Szenarios und der entwickelten Anwendungen, sollen dem Projekt „Active City Innovation“ zu Verfügung gestellt werden, das als Ziel den Aufbau eines anwendbaren Leitfadens zur Entwicklung von aktiven Städten anstrebt. Aktive Städte versuchen durch innovative Konzepte die Bewegung und das Wohlbefinden der BürgerInnen zu steigern und damit die Lebensqualität zu verbessern.

„Active City Innovation“ (ACI) ist ein Teilprojekt des großen internationalen Sport-Innovations-Netzwerks Projekts (SINN-I),  das sich zum Ziel gesetzt hat, Innovationen in den Bereichen Bewegung, Gesundheit und Lebens- und Bewegungsfreude weltweit zu fördern.

Digitale Dorfmitte

Digitale Dorf.Mitte (Digi.DoM) setzt an den Themen und Bedürfnissen der Dörfer und ihrer Bewohnerschaft an, nimmt bestehende Projekte und Initiativen zum Anlass konkreter digitaler Entwicklung und ist Teil einer übergeordneten regionalen Strategie. Bewährte technische Lösungen werden projektbezogen angepasst. Digitale Dorf.Mitte hat eine Laufzeit von rund zweieinhalb Jahren (12/2017 – 4/2020). Es ist ein Projekt der Universität Siegen, das vom Bundesministerium für Ernährung und Landwirtschaft im Rahmen des Programms „Land.Digital: Chancen der Digitalisierung für ländliche Räume“ gefördert wird. Kooperationspartner sind die LEADER-Region Wittgenstein und die Regionale Südwestfalen 2025 mit dem Schwerpunkt Digitalisierung.

Cognitive Village/ Vernetztes Dorf – Adaptiv-Lernende, technische Alltagsbegleiter im Alter (BMBF 2015-2018)

Das Verbundprojekt verfolgt das Ziel, lernende und mobile technische Lösungen mit der vorhandenen, individuellen Wohnstruktur älterer Menschen und deren sozialen Netzwerken zu verknüpfen (Cognitive Village). Mit deren Hilfe sollen sich ältere Menschen in ihrem lokalen Umfeld leicht zugängliche Unterstützung organisieren, um trotz geistiger und/oder körperlicher Defizite weitgehend autonom leben zu können. Diese Lösungen sollen relativ einfach und niedrigschwellig gehalten werden, um die technischen, wirtschaftlichen und politischen Umsetzungschancen zu erhöhen. Nutzerperspektive älterer Menschen und ihrer sozialen Netzwerke sowie weiterer relevanter Stakeholder, die für eine Versorgung im Nahumfeld relevant sind, sichern partizipative Gestaltungsansätze eine alltagstaugliche Einbettung und Passung der technischen Lösungen. Die Lösungen werden in zwei unterschiedliche Wohnungs- und Siedlungsstrukturen eingebettet (Stadtteil und Dorf), um die Effekte des Wohn- und Lebensumfelds auf technische Lösungen ermitteln zu können.

  • Struzek, D. & Mueller, C. (2021)Introduction of a platform for fostering social participation and engagement in rural areas

    doi:10.13140/RG.2.2.32157.23526
    [BibTeX] [Abstract]
    Rural areas are struggling with ever greater challenges. Young people are leaving, social spaces are disappearing, and public infrastructure is poor or lacking. Various technical communication channels are already being used to provide support. This has led to information overload and a lack of trust in new technologies, especially among the older population. In order to support 6 villages in mutual communication, we used the well-known neighborhood platform „nebenan.de,“ which was developed for urban areas, as part of the 3-year research project Digital Village Center (Digi.DoM), which focused on developing digitization strategies for rural areas. Older residents in particular should have a way to get help from others, post questions about technology, requests or offers for sale, and requests for rides, even across villages. Participatory approaches were used to identify requirements for the platform for rural areas. Appropriation of the platform took place in 6 technology workshops held in three villages. Although residents of all ages were welcome, only residents between the ages of 60 and 85 attended. The workshops helped us capture related needs of older users. To encourage interaction, a common group was created on the platform, accessible to all registered villagers from all villages. The meetings showed how hesitant the older users of the platform were and for the most part only surveyed the association work. In addition, the villages wished to have their own groups, to which other villages did not have access. Another problem was the lack of trust building, which was reflected in the fact that workshop participation decreased and participants were skeptical even about a list of participants. Significant, at the same time, was the village history, which was even seen as a reason for using the platform. Using the introduction process of nebenan.de as an example, the contribution reflects on a basic conflict of community technologies for the target group of older adults who have little experience with such applications. On the one hand, such community technologies only work if a sufficiently large mass of users participates („critical mass“). On the other hand, this is countered by worries of „non-users“ who are concerned with questions of security, privacy related to community processes, they are used to in their small village life. The poster shows how socially acceptable solutions were sought with the older people in negotiation processes.

  • Struzek, D., Butorac, J. & Mueller, C. (2021)Designing for older dancers – implications for design of IT which supports joy of movement in urban spaces

    doi:10.13140/RG.2.2.25446.34882
    [BibTeX] [Abstract]
    The current global pandemic caused by COVID-19 has turned many people’s daily lives upside down. The scale of the crisis forced countries to take increasingly drastic measures, from initial hygiene and protection measures to a complete lockdown of public and private life. To this end, public places were closed off, large events were banned for the time being, and public offerings and activities that lead to gatherings of people were not permitted. Older adults, as a particularly vulnerable group, suffer from the physical distancing measures when they have to reduce social activities. To bridge the physical distance problem, videoconferencing and live streaming solutions have gained popularity. The poster demonstrates research activities from the BMBF-funded “Active City Innovation” research project, exploring how dance and movement in public spaces can be supported by socio-technical systems with a special focus on older citizens. As part of the requirements analysis process, interviews and participant observations have been conducted with older dancers between 65 and 95 years in Siegen. The dance group had been meeting regularly to dance together for several years. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, they had to cancel all joint dance activities on site. With the qualitative research approach, we aim to understand the motivations of the older dancers as well as their trainers and extrapolate implications for potential technical assistance from the findings. The results indicate that dancing, especially among older adults, is not comparable to other physical activities and that personal exchange and a sense of community are the main reasons for participation at the dance class. Digital solutions such as live streaming solutions are hardly seen as an alternative to exercise and tend to be rejected, since technical systems are not associated with leisure time and, above all, cannot convey the human feeling of the joint activity. The results also show that dancing or moving in a group provides support and structure in the living environment and is seen as a movement option especially by women, while men prefer other sportive activities, such as riding a bicycle. Our results may assist researchers and developers in implementing conferencing and live streaming systems to support physical activity promotion in older adults, and most importantly, raise awareness of social participation and sense of community as key motivators for using such systems.
