Connected products are increasingly taking over our daily lives. This workshop is an opportunity to focus on new meanings and opportunities for products to be connected. ... [+]

What are Connected Products?

Connected products are physical devices or things that have been embedded with sensors, software, data storage or general connectivity, allowing for the transfer of data or a service (user interface). Examples include wearable devices (now a multi-billion dollar industry) or smart home gadgets. Solving everyday problems with small connected products is fast becoming the norm, with myriad new opportunities arising each year within the ‘Internet of Things’ and technology becoming increasingly more intuitive and user-driven.

What will you learn? Different kinds of technologies and their potential in the context of connected devices. How to infuse a product with behaviors, services, and real-world user scenarios to get a sense of the complete product. Prototyping! Some basics of prototyping and fabrication like, 3d-modeling, 3d printing, Arduino, electronics, and making both functional and high-fidelity dummy apps. Concept/product communication skills. ... [-]

What are Interactive Spaces?

We live in an amazing time where digital technology is beginning to take many different physical forms, with a rise in new interactions and sensorial experiences. Virtual and mixed reality offers a new take on these questions by letting us embed digital objects with properties from the physical world such as location, scale, and persistence in the world. How do these technologies work to create and augment environments?

What will you learn? Using your hands – learning to make physical prototypes of all scales, starting at the analog level, and working up to integrating digital components Analog and digital tools to create interactive experiences Prototyping skills and an understanding of how and when to use each technique Basic methodology to create an experience through user journeys, research, prototyping, user testing, body/brainstorming, workshopping, etc Practical idea generation and critical thinking methods How to create and use physical affordances, and how to design for action A vocabulary for virtual and mixed reality interaction design An ability to find and expand insights related to interactive environments Prototyping communication skills – learning how to create and use prototypes, and when (fidelity vs. content, contextual use) ...

Learn how to incorporate lessons from behavioral science into the design process and create solutions that have a measurable impact. ... [+]

CIID Summer School Copenhagen 2018 from CIID on Vimeo.

What is this workshop?

The Design for Behaviour & Impact workshop will follow CIID’s learning by doing philosophy and a people-centered approach to introduce students to behavioral science through the lens of interaction design. The workshop will investigate how a behavioral research and design process can help interaction designers gain a better understanding of people’s decision-making processes and create products and services with higher rates of adoption and usage.

What will you learn? Better understand how people make decisions by introducing concepts and lessons from the field of behavioral science. Practice strategies for designing products, services, and environments that address the behavioral biases of our users. Evaluate the effectiveness of our solution by measuring the influence (or lack thereof) of our designs on people’s behavior. Recognize implicit biases that we may have as individuals or teams and how they influence the decisions we make in our design process. ... [-]
