What We Do > Interface Design + Research

Researchers at Incaa Designs are known worldwide for the human-centered design of innovative interfaces. We design interfaces that are compatible with students’ natural communication patterns and ways of learning, so cognitive load can be reduced and performance enhanced. 

Our interface design emphasizes natural and richly expressive communication technologies such as pen, speech, and multimodal input, and tangible interfaces embedded in familiar objects such as digital paper and pen. It also emphasizes interface support for collaborative activities (peer tutoring, mentoring), and usability in field and mobile settings in order to capitalize on informal learning opportunities.

Our research and interface designs have highlighted science and mathematics, and individual differences among diverse student groups. See examples of our recent research findings.
