Thrimage: An Empathy-Oriented Discussion Tool for Classroom Use
Paper in proceedings, 2015

Thrimage is a class-application where pupils choose and rank images in relation to a given word or notion. In seeing who else chose similarly, as well as in a debriefing teacher-led discussion, pupils gain insight in others' way of thinking, and learn to argument for their own opinion but also to respect others, both of which supports the development of empathy and mutual understanding. The design is part of a long-running design exploration on designing of collaborative, co-located experiences using mobile devices, in combination with an educational need.
