The time has come when I am beginning to turn my attention to thinking about what projects I’ll be engaged in after the Click-East study comes to an end in July 2013.
A final year student at the Edinburgh College of Art, Yuan Kai, has been
working on the Click-East app for some time. Her designs feature in the free version, which is currently available on iTunes, and also on the more extensive verison that we’re trialling at the moment.
During the Click-East project we have engaged in a lot of participatory design and other piloting processes. Participatory design means having the expected end users of a product (in this case an iPad app) contribute to the design process.
Good Morning on World Autism Awareness Day!
This blog will be pretty brief but I wanted to write a post to mark this important day for the autism community, and to mark my support by Lighting Up Blue!
Since the press coverage of our app last week, I’ve received a huge number of enquiries from parents, teachers and other people who are close to children with autism.
Another new experience for me this week – composing a press release in advance of the publication of our app on the Apple Store tomorrow (11th January 2012).

I had intended to make this blog about the process of getting ethical approval for a research study: hard work and poorly understood by anyone who hasn’t done it, including me until last year!

My first proper blog post. The issue that’s really exercising the team right now is about Intellectual Property rights, licensing and so forth. The big question is how we ensure a life for the CLICK-EAST game after the current research grant runs out.
