    GVU Center Overview and Funded Research Projects
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-08-22) Edwards, W. Keith ; Mynatt, Elizabeth D. ; Trent, Tim ; Morshed, Mehrab Bin ; Sherman, Jihan ; Glass, Lelia ; Partridge, Andrew ; Swarts, Matthew E.
    In the first GVU Brown Bag Seminar of the academic year, Keith Edwards, GVU Center Director and Professor of Interactive Computing, will kick off our talk series with an overview of the GVU Center detailing its unique resources and opportunities, and previewing some of the events coming up this semester. Come, enjoy lunch, and learn about some of the ways you can connect with GVU. Also, each year, the GVU Center and IPaT announce funding for the Research and Engagement Grants, which support early stage work by Georgia Tech researchers. This year’s winners will give brief overviews of the work they will be doing over the coming academic year.

    Measuring the Unseen: a Symposium About Building a Cultural Framework for Design and Technology
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-04-04) Kim, Julie Ju-Youn ; Addington, Michelle ; Kennedy, Sheila ; Clark, Jennifer ; Mynatt, Elizabeth D.
    Sophisticated knowledge and skills in the right hands and minds can empower designers to make smarter design choices, but these instruments are not prescriptive. The balance lies between the space of the qualitative and the quantitative, between the immeasurable and the scientific. In this field of hightech and big data, where are the spaces for the ephemeral, the un-quantifiable, in an arena driven by metrics and computation? How can technology not prescribe but rather leverage and amplify the articulation of the thoughtfully considered design artifact? What are the possibilities when the skills of the craftsperson are merged with cutting-edge tools? This symposium will share the innovative research and creative production of the work of design leaders operating at the intersection of architecture, art, culture and technology.

    Assessing Health Games in Secondary Schools: An Investigation of the American Horsepower Challenge 2009-2010
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-07) Eiríksdóttir, Elsa ; Xu, Yan ; Miller, Andrew ; Poole, Erika ; Catrambone, Richard ; Kestranek, Dan ; Mynatt, Elizabeth D.
    We present detailed findings from our study of a long-term multi-site physical activity pervasive game for US middle school children: The American Horsepower Challenge. In this technical report, we concentrate on the following findings. Compared to the pedometer data collected one week before the AHPC was deployed, the participants logged significantly more steps during the three heats as compared to the pre-game period, and overall students described being motivated to participate in AHPC to have fun, be healthier, and to support a sense of school pride. Most parents reported encouraging their children to be physically active or play sports, but as the challenge progressed we found a drop in family support for being physically active. The AHPC teacher is crucial to the game's success, providing structured opportunities for additional physical activity, becoming stewards of the pedometers, and mediating between the school, students and the sponsor. In addition to these findings, we also present design recommendations, including: designing for limited information technology resources, and implementing workarounds for expected hardware failure.
