Our Research Learning Team is recruiting for a 5-week session for 7th and 8th graders beginning Monday, October 21. We need students!
At Amplify, we strive to develop the best products through continuous testing of curriculum, games, software, and hardware. We use a method called "playtesting" to inform product design, sessions are run by our research professionals who moderate and log student interactions with our product. These sessions allow us to introduce an idea, concept, game, content piece, or technology piece to potential users in order to gather feedback and suggestions and to improve the usability of the product. Feedback is an essential part of the process, and when designing for children, it is important to us to playtest our ideas. All students' feedback is used in the development cycle and contributes to the final vision of our curriculum product, giving the students a voice in our product decisions.
