English abstract:
In Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) research, the focus is on enabling people to collaborate and communicate together via advances in mobile and social networking technologies. However, the basic social skills that are employed by people as part of these communications and collaborations are largely assumed and taken for granted. We are interested in how technologies can open up opportunities to support the basics of social interaction, such as connectedness, rapport and empathy, and to support the teaching and learning of social and emotional skills. Drawing on recent advances in Psychology, Social Neuroscience and Prevention Science, as well as ubiquitous computing, I explore the design of new technologies to support the more implicit aspects of social interaction and the learning of social-emotional skills, with a particular concern for interactions in everyday contexts.
