To highlight work being done within the IDC and CCI field we invite researchers in the field to showcases projects they are working on here:
The weDRAW project comes from the renewed neuroscientific understanding of the role of communication between sensory modalities during development: specific sensory systems have specific roles to learn specific concepts. Starting from these results, weDRAW is developing multisensory technologies and serious games that will exploit the best modality for learning arithmetic and geometrical concepts.
This participatory research project aims to gather stories and data about teenage energy use to deliver innovative mobile technologies to educate and influence teenagers about energy behaviours using teenagers as co-investigators in research projects to design solutions that will change the habits of a generation.
For the past 3 years the ChiCI Group has been involved with the UMSIC project (Usability of Music for the Social Inclusion of Children), which is an interdisciplinary EU project, with partners in the UK, Finland, Switzerland and Greece. As a part of this project, a new open-source mobile music-making game has been developed for children, called JamMo (Jamming Mobile). Over 600 children across Europe have been involved with this project to date, in participatory design of the product, and in iterative testing and evaluation of prototypes.
