ALLS presents to Miriam College High School

In the hopes of encouraging more young people to study computer science, Ma. Mercedes T. Rodrigo and Tricia Monsod (CS ’12) made a presentation about affective computing to one class of Miriam College High School students. Dr. Rodrigo began the presentation with an overview of affective computing and the types of research conducted by the Ateneo Laboratory of the Learning Sciences.  The highlight of the talk, though, was Ms. Monsod’s presentation of Jason King Li’s (CS ’12) and her thesis, School of Thought, an affect-sensitive game.  Mr. Resty Collado of Miriam as well as two students tried the game, to their delight. ALLS and DISCS are scheduled to conduct more of these talks in other high schools around the country.
