Early development of children is a critical issue for young parents. However, symptoms of abnormality may occur in a subtle manner, and parents often fail to recognize them or seek help at an early stage. This is often because they lack certain knowledge or professional guidance. CDC distributed brochures to promote knowledge of children early development. However, this form of the publication contains a large volume of information and is hard to popularize. Furthermore, even though parents’ role in solving this problem is significant, they could not do it alone.
Through findings from over 60 interviews and a national online survey with 978 with diverse groups of parents, we explored parents' ability to find learning opportunities, we identify differences in parents' use of online social networks in finding learning opportunities for their children across different socioeconomics.
In a piano lesson, a student often imitates the teacher's playing in terms of speed, dynamics, and fingering. While this learning model leverages one's visual and even audial perception for emulation, it still lacks an important component of piano playing the tactile sensation. We seek to convey the tactile sensations of the teacher's keystrokes and then signal the student's corresponding fingers. We implemented an instrumented fingerless glove called Tactile Teacher to detect finger taps on hard surfaces.
