About the Talk
Today’s teens experience more stress than any other age group. This stress negatively impacts teens mental and physical health, often with tragic outcomes. In this talk, Dr. Emma Rose and Dr. Elin Björling will present the case for social robots as both a measurement tool and an intervention for teen stress. They will discuss their ongoing research project that uses a participatory design approach and actively engages teens in the design process. They will share considerations for ways to ethically and meaningfully engage in the design of social robots. This talk will appeal to both design and research practitioners in UX who are interested in considering new approaches for designing technology products in socially complex spaces.
During this interactive talk, you will:
Learn about methods for exploring and understanding people’s lives including, ecological momentary assessment.
Consider ethical ways to engage vulnerable populations in design, including participatory design and community-based approaches to research.
Explore considerations for designing meaningful interactions with social robots.
