  • This paper was submitted to the SSCI journal, Educational Technology Research and Development (ETR&D), and we are currently revising the manuscript for the second review. I participated in this peer-reviewed article as the second author, and I appreciate Dr. Stefaniak for this great opportunity to study the discrepancies between novice and expert instructional designers. 

Presentation

Hwang, H. (2020). “Lello!” – A Mobile Application for a Visual Report of Emotional Status of Students, Poster presented at the Annual Convention of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT’20), Virtual Convention, November 2.

  • As the presenter of this AECT poster session, I introduced the Design-Based Research (DBR) project for prototyping a mobile application that aimed to quantitatively appraise and visualize students’ emotional trends. This project’s purpose was to enhance user’s emotional awareness, thereby promoting emotional self-regulation which is significantly related to learning processes.
