Week 1 & 2: Concept

What: I want to design an interactive web experience that creates dialogue about mental illness and depression.

How: I’m going to code a series of forms to create a series of interactive forms/quizzes.

Why: I’m interested in how digital experiences can work as tools for learning.

This week I focused on nailing down the concept and form my project will take. I interviewed several people to get insight on how we talk about mental illness with others. I also talked to students in the WashU community with backgrounds in social work, anthropology, and psychology to get alternative perspectives on my concept.
