Mood Sense

Reflection is commonly used to improve wellbeing. Nonetheless, children and young people may struggle to articulate their feelings, especially if they have complex conditions that affect their ability to communicate.
This PhD project explores how tangible digital technologies can help to monitor and improve the wellbeing of children through reflection. It aims to improve the theoretical understanding of how to measure and support children’s wellbeing through technology; and to provide a conceptual framework and design guidelines for new tangible interventions for assessing and supporting wellbeing.

Tu Dinh Duong is conducting this PhD project under the primary supervision of Prof Yvonne Rogers at the UCL Interaction Centre in partnership with GOSH NHS Foundation Trust and GOSH DRIVE. This project is funded through an EPRSC research grant.
