The ChartPatrol: Promoting positive behavior in children with behavioral challenges

Visual devices can support strategies for behavior management of children with behavioral challenges. However, existing tools are often static, rarely configurable, and tend to focus only on individual behavior. In this project we explore the use of interactive surfaces to support teamwork and cooperation in children with behavioral challenges through a classroom display for collective...
