Screen Savers: Assistive Media Tech for Kids!
Wellbeing amongst the young is a major issue facing the world post-Covid. This video explores how science and technology-based solutions marry with media to support and regulate health and wellbeing.
Two UK cutting edge companies working alongside prestigious universities have created products which help to read and regulate emotions, to allow our younger generation to navigate through life in a more resourceful and resilient way.
Both systems integrate animation, film, augmented reality and have clear applications within the media and gaming industry.
The video will take a closer look at the stories behind the creation of the resources, hearing from the scientists, doctors, teachers and children that use them and then look at what opportunities are possible for collaboration, to help create a richer, brighter future together.
