GVU Research Showcase Spring 2022

Featured Projects

We describe our design considerations and iterative prototyping process from testing with youth and educators, and studying seven teachers in a week-long workshop. Our findings demonstrate how teachers perceived MCVT Cards for facilitating new computational practices, specifically for learning through exploratory making and connecting to examples of everyday computing.
We will explore stakeholder perspectives to understand data work in mental health AI research.
Young adults are constantly stressed due to issues such as career transitions and relationship problems. There is research that shows nature can help us destress. But, we do not associate nature with urban cities and find ourselves deprived of nature. In this project, we explore personalized and context-aware design solutions to find and experience nature in urban cities better. The solution makes nature-based activities more accessible and easier to integrate into everyday life and provide a preventative approach to stress and anxiety by building daily habits for mental well-being.
