Abstract:In a case study at an institution for mentally disabled children a digital photo frame was introduced like in studies of Biemans and Van Dijk (2009) and Biemans, van Dijk, Dadlani and Van Halteren (2009). As suggested by Eisenhardt (1989) for case studies data triangulation was used. For all stakeholders, the mentally disabled children, their parents and their caregivers several measurements methods were used. All measurements methods together supported the findings of improved social connectedness between mentally disabled children and their parents through usage of a distant photo exchange system. The photos exchanged served as food for talk supporting the experiences of mentally disabled children when interacting with their environment.
