Article
It is not always easy to express yourselve if someone asks you how you're doing. Often we just say ‘Everything is OK’. Sometimes it seems as if we do not want to bother explaining everything. The fact is that articulating a feeling or a state of mind is extremely difficult. If there was a way in which another person could experience what you feel, an explanation would no longer be required. In the pilot 'Play', which falls within the project 'Virtual Worlds for Wellbeing' of COMMIT, we develop an application that will do exactly that. Within this project Waag is developing an environment that encourages ‘embodied learning' and that stimulates young people in a fun way to work on their social and emotional development.
