Stroke rehabilitation, mHealth, Human-Computer Interaction
Partners: University of Massachusetts Amherst, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, Formsense
Advancing Personal Informatics through Semi-Automated Tracking
Principal Investigator(s): Eun Kyoung Choe
Funder: National Science Foundation
Research Areas: Accessibility and Inclusive Design > Data Science, Analytics, and Visualization > Health Informatics > Human-Computer Interaction
Challenging the notion that fully automated health tracking tech is better for users, particularly older adults and surgical patients, since minimal personal tracking engagement is needed. This project examines semi-automated tracking, testing the hypothesis that some self-monitoring results in greater awareness of one's own health and data and better health/behavior outcomes.
CHS: Medium: Collaborative Research: Teachable Activity Trackers for Older Adults
Principal Investigator(s): Eun Kyoung Choe
Funder: National Science Foundation
Research Areas: Accessibility and Inclusive Design > Data Science, Analytics, and Visualization > Health Informatics > Human-Computer Interaction
Pushing the boundaries of how personal tracking devices, such as smart watches, can better support older adults---by identifying what health/activities data would be most useful for older adults if tracked, how to collect/track this data, and utilizing this information to develop a new personalized, multimodal activity tracker.
Inclusive ICT RERC
Principal Investigator(s): Gregg Vanderheiden J. Bern Jordan Hernisa Kacorri Amanda Lazar Jonathan Lazar
Funder: HHS / ACL / National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research Other
Research Areas: Accessibility and Inclusive Design > Data Science, Analytics, and Visualization > Human-Computer Interaction > Information Justice, Human Rights, and Technology Ethics
Ensuring that existing information and communication technologies (ICT) solutions for people with disabilities are known, effective, findable, more affordable, and available on every computer or digital technology platform; and exploring the emerging next-next-generation interface technologies for which there are no effective accessibility guidelines or standards, and problem-solving in advance of these technologies.
Maryland Sports Data Analytics Camps for Youth
Principal Investigator(s): Tamara Clegg
Funder: National Science Foundation
Research Areas: Accessibility and Inclusive Design > Data Science, Analytics, and Visualization > Youth Experience, Learning, and Digital Practices
Advancing knowledge of informal learning experiences that build adolescents' motivation for participation in STEM courses and careers, with a specific focus on introducing middle school African American and Latinx youth to the world of sports data analytics through events and summer camps.
SaTC: EDU: Collaborative: Connecting Contexts: Building Foundational Digital Privacy and Security Skills for Elementary School Children, Teachers, and Parents
Principal Investigator(s): Jessica Vitak Tamara Clegg
Funder: National Science Foundation
Research Areas: Accessibility and Inclusive Design > Computational Linguistics, Machine Learning, and Information Retrieval > Data Science, Analytics, and Visualization > Human-Computer Interaction
Promoting elementary school children's privacy/cybersecurity learning across the two contexts where they spend most of their time, home and school, through the creation of curriculum and related educational materials tailored to grade level.
