These projects include the participatory design and evaluation of a digital living media system that engages children through dynamics of caring and responsibility, the development of a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) prototyping platform for the creation of audio interfaces for children with disabilities, and a study of the perceptions and attitudes of individuals with diverse identities towards automatic recognition technology.
