With the app programmed by BaSeTaLK, the residents of nursing homes make virtual trips to places such as the garden, the cinema or the library. There, they are invited to exchange ideas with each other and to ask questions about their life stories. The app is developed in a collaborative process with the focus groups, programmed by the technical staff and published as open source software. Read more

LATEST NEWS - BaSeTaLK-App in use


Currently, our first trial phase of the biography conversations is running with an application of the BaSeTaLK app. Four volunteers from Regensburg meet weekly with their conversation partners via video telephony. They travel virtually to places like the sea, the mountains, the countryside, or they visit the cathedral or the theater. Here they encounter a wide variety of topics related to their lives, which they discuss in pairs.
