Social Media Expo at iConference 2013!
The past 1.5 years, I have been working with a group of graduate students (Michael Gubbels, Jason Yip, Jinyoung Kim) to explore the design of social media tools for children’s collaborative science inquiry. The result of this project is SINQ, a social media tool for Scientific INQuiry, where we leverage features seen in popular tools like Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram to guide children to practice inquiry skills.
I’m happy to announce that our prototype was accepted to the Social Media Expo at the iConference 2013, supported by Microsoft Research (link here for more info). Check out the SINQ video, which will be shown at the Expo.
