Design for Education

Experience in designing with emerging technologies like Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and physical computing devices to enable effective and integrated learning in education.

What I Do

Focus areas


VR-AR-XR Design & Dev

VR & AR environment design involves defining the goals, scripting & storyboarding the environment, creating the assets, and coding the game logic in the Unity game engine.


Digital & tangible prototyping

Digital prototyping involves building wireframes & high-fidelity prototypes followed by doing a heuristic evaluation & usability testing. Tangible prototyping involves the use of physical computing devices.


User experience Design

User experience (UX) design involves doing user studies, building empathy & affinity maps to identify the problems, defining learning objectives & suitable pedagogy for EdTech, and brainstorming solutions.
