Project Goals : Educating Young Eyes, led by Dr. Erdly, is a project that focuses on children near vision assessment and therapy using latest modern technologies. We aim to develop effective screening and therapy tools that are easily accessible to schools and other parties, and to increase the awareness of importance of functional vision in children’s learning. This project is based on existing research works on child near vision issues and their impacts, and touches a variety of technical and non-technical topics such as: Game Design, Distributed Web Service Architecture, Software Engineering, Education and Children Learning, Psychology, Social Justice, Law, and more. We help increase awareness and provide access to all communities about the importance of functional vision in children’s learning. We also started many projects for the purpose of research and experiment, ranging from single-page survey web apps to well-polished mobile games.
Student Responsibilities : Download data (without private info) for further analysis, research and development, journal article, and/or reports.
