Digital technologies have made their way into all the aspects of our lives that, according to psychology, influence our wellbeing—everything from social relationships and curiosity to engagement and learning. By bringing together research and methodologies well-established in psychology, education, neuroscience and human-computer interaction, we can begin to cultivate a new field dedicated to the design and development of technology that supports wellbeing and human potential. More specifically, in this seminar I will present a summary of our current projects on Affect and Learning technologies. This will be followed with an introduction to our Human-Computer interaction work aiming to support psychological wellbeing. The suggested HCI framework builds on positive psychology and wellbeing literature, including that from neuroscience.
