This thesis explores contact between grandparents and grandchildren over distance. This was done by designing, implementing and deploying a technology probe to two families in Australia. Based on this deployment, I elicit and discuss themes important to consider when designing technology for communication between grandparents and grandchildren living apart.

Subsequently the technology probe was deployed to families having grandparents in Australia and grandchildren in Denmark. Based on this deployment, I analysed how their communication was affected by the time zone differences. This was done based on existing theoretical terms on time and events. Finally, I discuss how technology can be designed for communication between grandparents and grandchildren living in different time zones.
