Project title: Exploring user engagement with interactive media through design and analysis of digital magazines
Mentor: Duke Hutchings
I’m researching the differences that exist among young students’ interactions with digital iPad magazines and paper-based magazines, specifically looking at levels of information engagement and information retention. The experiment that was laid out at the beginning of the spring semester, which took place with students from a local elementary school, has been completed. I am currently in the data analysis phase and I’m working on a conference paper for the Student Research Competition at CHI 2014, the top conference for Human-Computer Interaction research.
