About me


About
Hi I'm Jen, I am a driven and ambitious Interaction Design student, and I'm eager to start contributing full time to the UX/UI field after I graduate. I love working in collaborative settings, and I thrive when I'm faced with a challenge. I've spent the past year preparing my thesis, an augmented reality app for educational use, and it's something I'm really proud of.

Q&A
What got you into design?
If you want to go way back, my dad is an electronics engineer, and ever since I was a kid we would joke about how he would create the hardware, and I would design the surrounding product. Because of this, I've always been interested in product design, and I thought that Interaction Design would be a great extension for learning that kind of stuff, and more.

Can you tell me a joke?
What's red and tastes like blue paint

FUN FACTS
I spent 7 years as a competitive swimmer.

A color that represents me is #00FFAA (spring green)

I have 4 seconds of screen time in the movie Cheaper by the Dozen 2

Introducing augmented reality into classroom learning.

why?

Its no secret that there are other ways to learn than reading a textbook, but current standards haven't been updated in years. Education practices are in dire need of modernization. Young students are growing up in a world flourishing with technology, so their education should be able to represent that.

what?

LearnLab is a classroom learning mobile app that uses augmented reality technology to help students understand concepts that are difficult to understand in a textbook. Using modern technology, LearnLab appeals to students and captivates their attention all while incorporating a quiz style approach to helping students learn.

how?

After months of research and interviews with high schoolers and teachers, I found that students are spending an average of 4 hours every day memorizing information read in their textbooks, and students hate textbooks. After finding this, I looked to find a way to modernize how teachers approach learning styles.
