Thursday Extra: "Designing technology to help Grinnellians sleep more"

On Thursday, April 10, Nediyana Daskalova 2014, Nathalie Ford 2014, Ann Hu 2014, Kyle Moorehead 2015, and Ben Wagnon 2014 will present the results of their summer and fall 2013 research with Professor Janet Davis:

We designed persuasive technology to encourage better sleep habits in college students. Using participatory workshops, we collaborated with Grinnell students to identify problems, brainstorm potential solutions, and develop low-tech prototypes. This talk will give an overview of the design process and directions for future work.

Refreshments will be served at 4:15 p.m. in the Computer Science Commons (Noyce 3817). The presentation, “Designing technology to help Grinnellians sleep more,” will follow at 4:30 p.m. in Noyce 3821. Everyone is welcome to attend!
