Constructive emotional experiences are strongly related to
effective learning. Yet, it is challenging for teachers,
researchers and students alike to understand the emotions
experienced in the classroom setting. Advances in wireless
and sensor technologies open up possibilities for better
supporting emotions. However, little work has explored
how affective technologies in the classroom might operate.
This paper describes a study where 15 high school students
used the Subtle Stone: a tangible technology designed to
support students´´ active emotional communication in the
classroom. We report on how the students used and
experienced this technology, and the values they
demonstrated through this use: flexibility, privacy, agency,
voice and reflection. We conclude by examining future
possibilities for affective technologies in the classroom.
