- Each person should work on their project – either a budget or implementation proposal – to figure out whether you are (1) writing a paper about something (what? a literature survey about child health outcome and measurements, about personality and communications, about healthcare IT at home, etc. etc.), conducting some sort of empirical studies (protocol analysis of daily life activities? interviews with people? tools for healthy diet and exercises? using cultural probe to investigate quality of life issues? etc etc), or (2) inventing information and computing technology interfaces, tangible artifact (software, hardware, website, toys, community portals, playground, etc. etc.) by any means to address issues of building as an interface to everything, tele-health, child development, communications, learning, and disease management, energy and sustainability issues, or a vision of the future!
- Be prepared to have a story to tell in the 3 minute madness session two weeks from now – which you can show (1) a work-in-progress prototype, (2) a refined proposal of up to 5 slides in 3 minutes to tell people what your research topics for this class will be, and how you plan to do it, are there precedents or related work? and what might we expect to see at the end of the semester.
- Depending on people’s interests, we could adjust reading lists to better suit the class discussions and progress
- Yes, you can decide to do it either as individual project or a joint team project (no more than 3 persons per team please.)
