Enhancing Mobile Working Memory Training by Using Affective Feedback
Schaaff, Kristina
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Mobile Learning (Lisbon, Portugal, Mar 14-16, 2013)
The objective of this paper is to propose a novel approach to enhance working memory (WM) training for mobile devices by using information about the arousal level of a person. By the example of an adaptive n-back task, we combine methodologies from different disciplines to tackle this challenge: mobile learning, affective computing and cognitive psychology. Mobile applications for WM training offer the advantage that a user can perform a training session independently of time and location. Using approaches from affective computing, training sessions can be made more challenging and engaging by making them adaptive to the current state of a user. In contrast to conventional adaptive WM trainings, our approach uses physiological signals to extract information about the arousal level of a person. In this paper, we address the question how information about the arousal level of a user can be captured and how this information can be used to influence the overall learning procedure. An approach to integrate feedback about the arousal level of a person into mobile WM training is presented and exemplified using the n-back task. [For the full proceedings, see ED562140.]
