104. iCanGo Project [2015] Online

Collection
Learning, Design & Technology 2015
iCanGo is a story-building tool for parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Difficulty with social interaction is seen as the signature feature of Autism. The social skills that children with Autism Spectrum Disorder need to learn are often referred to as a hidden curriculum: an invisible set of guidelines that demarcate appropriate and inappropriate social behavior that children learn intuitively, and few are taught explicitly. While children with ASD tend to manage behavioral expectations within established routines somewhat adeptly, disruptions to that routine inaugurate a new set of expectations that children with ASD find difficult to manage. Social stories are a tool that allows children with ASD to have advanced notice of the behavioral expectations for a new social context, providing them with a framework for managing unexpected scenarios. A social story describes a social situation in terms of relevant social cues, perceptions and expected responses. iCanGo will provide tools that allow parents to quickly customize a social story to the using their child’s face, appropriate level of vocabulary and a motivational character.

110. Learn Colors [2015] Online

Learning, Design & Technology 2015
After learning simple nouns and verbs, children need to start reasoning about abstract concepts like shape, number, and color. In addition, language acquisition research suggests that to be remembered, new words must be repeated in meaningful contexts over an extended period of time. This project investigates opportunities for technology to help children master their color words using an augmented reality application to recognize and then announce color words as young learners explore the spaces they inhabit and the objects they encounter. Project video showcases an augmented reality app that uses a device's camera (iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad) to recognize and then announce color words as young learners explore the spaces they inhabit and the objects they encounter.

In recent years there has been a massive increase in the number of devices we interact with every day. From laptops and tablets to smartphones and wearables, users now have a myriad of devices options that are varied both in terms of use cases as well as new interfaces. However leveraging these devices is not always easy and sometimes they can even hinder productivity. The challenge of effectively using these devices becomes an intriguing topic. Microsoft has charged the team of students at Stanford and USTC to explore ways to address this problem and further simplify multi-device/human interaction.

Chronic and traumatic stress inhibit areas of the brain necessary for learning. Over 15.5 million children in the US experience factors directly linked with such toxic stress, including living in poverty and exposure to violence. In order to enable these kids to thrive in school, we must address stress within the structure of the school day. MindfulK12 -- an app and curriculum -- provides an easy way for teachers to build a norm of daily 10-minute mindfulness and social-emotional learning activities that help students feel in control, reduce and manage stress, self-regulate emotions, and engage productively in the classroom.

Every student is born with an innate curiosity to make sense of the world. However, by the time students reach high school, where motivation to learn is more important than ever, the drive to learn can greatly diminish whether due to a lack of proper academic preparation, a negative attitude toward school, a lack of purpose, new social pressures or other reasons. Even for students that wish to explore activities more deeply, many are afraid of the social risk they run by showing a strong desire to learn and explore the world around them. Naptitude is a set of napkins designed for use in school cafeterias that promotes curiosity through a series of prompts that encourages students to look at the world in new ways through play.

ME310 Project Based Engineering Design
Our design challenge is to create a better solution for nasal decongestion for the middle class in South Africa. The Stanford University team of Mechanical Engineers is partnered with a University of St. Gallen team of Master’s of Business Innovation students to address this task. Our corporate sponsor, Merck, has approached our team of seven with this goal of reinventing and redesigning the current solution for nasal decongestion. Merck would ultimately like to penetrate the African market and they believe that South Africa will set the trends for the rest of Africa because they are the most Western-leaning country. The middle class is the selected user group because Merck similarly believes that this rapidly expanding demographic will set the trends for other classes.

118. NatureQuest: Adventure Awaits [2015] Online

Learning, Design & Technology 2015
The experience of nature, once an inherent part of growing up, is no longer a given in a child’s life. A 2004 study found that children spent half as much time outside in 2003 as they did in 1981 (Juster 2004). Simultaneously, from 1997 to 2003, there was also a 37% decline in the proportion of children participating in outdoor activities (Hofferth 2009). These studies, together with a growing body of data, indicate that children are spending less time in nature than ever before—a trend with serious implications. In addition to the documented mental, physical, and developmental benefits of spending time outside, a 2006 study found that the most significant factor in predicting an adult's environmental attitudes was how much nature they were exposed to as children (Wells & Lekies). With the plethora of ecological problems the next generation will face only growing, the cultivation of conservationist attitudes is essential now more than ever. To facilitate children’s exposure to nature, I created NatureQuest, an interactive app and wearables system that inspires curiosity and excitement about the local environment while simultaneously providing opportunities for families to work together. Blending together features from traditional ranger programs, a compelling interactive story, and a scavenger hunt, the app engages without necessitating constant interaction with a screen. In preliminary testing, NatureQuest inspired rich conversation among family members, sparked environmental consciousness, and actively engaged kids and families outside for hours at a time. NatureQuest is envisioned as an introductory step in a life-long commitment to nature, providing a transition from the enticement indoor of activities to fully unstructured, unplugged outdoor play.

A person’s life-long eating habits and preferences are established between the ages of two and five. Research suggests that children who are involved with cooking their own meals are more likely to try new foods. By learning to cook family meals with their parents and learning more about food, preschoolers can develop healthy attitudes about food and cooking that will help set them on the path toward being a healthy adult. Nomster Chef is a parent-preschooler cooking lesson experience. The experience centers around a recipe app that addresses both of the chefs: a preschooler-friendly step-by-step picture recipe that helps scaffold the parent and child through the cooking experience. Each recipe also comes with educational videos for the child about an ingredient used in the recipe. The parent receives daily text message tips about how to foster children’s healthy attitudes about food. After a three-week pilot program, both children and parents demonstrated gains in knowledge, attitudes, and behavior.
