Daily life for families with children consists of activities that are spread geographically. People work in one place and live in another while activities that were earlier tied to the home are done other places. The development of “new” family structures while at the same time there is the distribution of daily activities has opened the way for new and more flexible forms for information and communication technology (ICT) to coordinate the interaction between family members. The need for flexible transport to link together activities is also an issue. In this project the interaction between ICT, physical mobility and social life among different types of families is examined. We ask how families use ICT to coordinate everyday life and how ICT and physical mobility interact.
