102. The 2 Shop Online

Collection
Learning, Design & Technology 2015
Thousands of honorable military service members transition out of the military every year, yet many fail to find viable or fitting careers afterward. Though some resources exist to help obtain jobs, most assume the veteran already has a specific path in mind. The 2 Shop - a Stanford Learning, Design and Technology master's project - takes it back a step by offering online learning modules and a community of "sources" - veterans who have already made successful transitions into industry or viable educational programs - that serve as worked examples and mentors to cut through the fog of war that is career exploration. The contents include the final project paper and a 2-minute video advert.

ME310 Project Based Engineering Design
Imagine Audi cars in 2025. Technology has advanced, and self-driving cars are zooming down the streets. Cars are connected with each other and share information. Traditional car ownership by one person still exists, but car sharing and rentals are just as popular. How do these trends affect the user and the car ownership experience? And how can Audi remain a successful premium car manufacturer? To answer this question, Audi asked a joint team from Stanford and the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) to design a feature that will improve the ownership experience in 2025 dramatically. Our team did extensive research in car sharing, connected cars, and autonomous vehicles, and interviewed Audi owners and employees to understand Audi as a brand. Audi cars are defined by their iconic brand identity and cutting edge technology. Customers love their sporty, comfortable, and professional nature. Audi is also quick to set trends that other competitors copy (such as the LED headlights). When autonomous cars arrive on the road, how can Audi keep their sporty image with no one in the driver seat and continue to be a leader in the industry that other manufacturers should catch up to? During early prototyping phases, the area of autonomous driving turned out to be most promising and challenging, as this is a relatively new area which users are not familiar with, yet. Trust in autonomous cars is a particularly important issue, both from the passengers’ point of view and from other road users’ point of view. Passengers must be convinced that autonomous cars are safe, do not suffer from technical malfunctions, and do not put their lives at risk. Road users like pedestrians, cyclists and drivers must be able to anticipate the autonomous car’s behavior, in order to feel safe, to make interaction in everyday traffic situations more efficient, and to raise acceptance of autonomous cars among the population. Our system is designed to help humans understand what an autonomous car is thinking. This will increase trust in autonomous cars, and, ultimately, increase acceptance of autonomous cars among the population.

Learning, Design & Technology 2015
Team-based learning has been shown to improve test scores, engagement, and excitement about learning (Cohen and Lotan, 2014; Sibley and Ostafichuk, 2014) and collaboration is an essential skill for knowledge workers. Yet most students graduate high school and even college having never been explicitly taught how to align individual and group goals, manage conflict, and other skills essential to teamwork in their future academic and professional lives. Teachers often avoid team-based learning because managing group formation, conflict, assessment, and evaluation are challenging and time consuming. ToGetThere is a centralized digital repository of interventions and activities designed to help teachers and students learn, perform, and reflect in group work. It serves as an online community of practice designed to promote sharing and learning between teachers, researchers, and students. This paper more comprehensively describes the challenge and learning goals for our project, and explores the design considerations, feature set, and technology used to accomplish these. We also discuss methods of testing and measuring efficacy and potential applications beyond the Master’s project.

In 1960, NBC aired the first ¿́¿reality television¿́¿ show in American broadcast history. Hosted by Jane Wyatt of Father Knows Best fame, and billing itself as a ¿́¿new kind of visual reporting, ¿́¿ it was called Story of a Family, and it purported to document the day-to-day lives of the 10-member Robertson family of Amarillo, Texas. While the show has since faded from public memory, media scholars and television historians have long recognized its significance as a precursor to the unscripted television programming that dominates American television today. In TV Family, communication professor and filmmaker Ethan Thompson weaves the recollections of several of the Robertsons featured in the show with commentary from TV historians and cultural critics to offer a fascinating behind-the-scenes account of the making of Story of a Family. The result is an eye-opening look at one of the television industry¿́¿s earliest attempts to shape the ¿́¿reality¿́¿ of family life in commercially viable ways. Ideal for courses that look at media culture, commercial television, communication, documentary, and television history.

ME310 Project Based Engineering Design
Raw materials for construction and industrial uses are becoming increasingly expensive. It is predicted that there will come a time when it is cheaper to recycle and reuse material that has already entered the manufacturing process than to mine new material from the earth. This is already the case in the steel industry, where scrap metal is easily melted down and recast. However, many potentially valuable waste materials are not currently recycled. Urban mining is the practice of reusing these unutilized materials instead of throwing them away to preserve their embodied energy. Volvo Construction Equipment challenged a team of students from Stanford University in the United States of America and the Blekinge Technical University in Sweden to develop a new technology in the field of urban mining that could be added to their product line. Volvo’s effort to enable more large-scale recycling is in line with its core value of environmental care. To better understand the problem, the Stanford and BTH teams conducted interviews and site visits to businesses in the four urban waste streams: construction and demolition (C&D), municipal, electronic, and rubber. It was found that the C&D industry accounts for the vast majority of all urban waste. There are several relatively new products, such as portable concrete crushers and onsite sorters, which allow contractors to reuse materials on a construction job site instead of trucking them to a landfill, which is costly. Off-hauling C&D waste from a demolition site typically accounts for half of the total budget of a demolition project. However, after more interviews were conducted, it became clear that another problem was in play: lack of job site space. Often, construction sites are limited by their footprint area, especially in urban areas. Currently, onsite reuse operations, such as crushing concrete for use as infill, take up large areas. Through prototyping and user-feedback, a system to effectively store large volumes of aggregate material in a tight footprint was designed.
