We are looking for dedicated students to participate in an exciting research project focusing on developing and testing a Data Physicalization Toolkit for primary school children. This project can be pursued as a research elective, offering 6 or 9 credits.

PAIRColator Toolkit

Project Description

In today’s digital age, an abundance of personal data is generated by smart devices, providing valuable insights for self-awareness. However, children often lack the necessary data literacy and reflection skills to effectively understand and utilise their personal data.

In this project, we are designing a Data Physicalization Toolkit aimed at helping children reflect upon their personal data through collaborative sketching, construction, and discussion. Our research will take place in primary school students aged 9 to 11 years old. You will actively contribute to designing and testing this toolkit through a series of user studies. This is a unique opportunity to work with personal data and children, making a meaningful difference in their lives.

Student Profile

Are you enthusiastic about working with personal data and helping children better understand their personal information? If so, this project is an excellent fit for you. You will be an integral part of the toolkit design process, working closely with Dutch primary school students. Proficiency in Dutch is highly preferred as you will collaborate with students from Dutch schools.

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to combine your research interests with the chance to impact young minds positively. Join our team and be a part of this transformative project!
