Abstract: This paper explores concepts of tangible interaction and multimodal representation of information framed by the theories of universal design for learning (UDL) to enhance learning for older adults. Two participatory user panels were organised to explore the potential of assistive technology and tangible interaction to engage and support older learners. A creative co-design method using a rich user scenario with practical demonstration examples was used. Existing assistive technologies designed for users with visual impairments and a novel design prototype were presented to participants. This design prototype is based on the idea of linking physical fixed learning materials with digital multimodal representations. Feedback on the existing and new interactive tools are presented based on the reactions and ideas of 7 older adult students between the ages of 57 and 76. Participants were not familiar with examples of assistive technology such as screenreaders and magnification, but were in terested in exploring new ways to have information represented through multiple modalities for learning.
