Intro to UX Research by Usertesting
Expeditions AR in classroom focus
groups in NYC and Pittsburgh.
During the 2017-2018 school year I was contracted as an Expeditions Lead for the Google Expeditions AR Program, an emerging segment of Google EDU. The program aims to bring Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Technology into classroom lesson plans.
Our research led to improvements in the AR education technology as well as invaluable student feedback. For example, based on our tests, the team decided to switch to using a QR code-based scan system to place virtual objects, instead of scanning the entire room. This decreased the bandwidth necessary for individual devices, meaning more students could be involved, and it ensured objects were placed in the correct area do to visual markers.
In student focus groups, ranging from 10 to 40 students at a time, we facilitated lessons. Teachers sometimes took a lead and other times my colleagues and I administered lessons.

Each student received a handheld device and was free to roam the assigned area to view each artifact as we discussed as a class. 3D animations were controlled by a central device, held by the teacher or myself.

Feedback about the experience and learning process was taken at the end of each topic.
My teammate Virginia and I represented our emerging tech at student incubator CODE Next, as well as From Stem to Screen, held at The Paley Center For Media, (In partnership with The Mayor's Office for Media and Entertainment NYC.)


Students attended from Black Girls Code, The Young Women’s Leadership Schools, Lower East Side Girls Club, James Madison High School, Cush Center, Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School, Bronx International High School, and Academy of Innovative Technology High School.
