Smiling Mind is a 100% not-for-profit that has a vision to help every mind to thrive. Smiling Mind delivers the benefits of mindfulness and meditation to both children and adults via a free app, a primary school curriculum, educator professional development workshops, workplace workshops and so much more.
Smiling Mind aims to provide accessible, life-long tools to support healthy minds. This starts by developing healthy habits that underpin our ability to live, learn and work in an increasingly complex, digitally connected and fast-paced world. They believe that taking a pre-emptive approach to support mental health is essential and it needs to be accessible to all.
This brief focuses on developing an incremental improvement on the newly relaunched Smiling Mind mobile app for teachers using Smiling Mind in the classroom and parents who wish to use Smiling Mind at home with their kids. Students should focus on what personalisation options can be included in the app to best suit the needs of these user groups. Students are to conduct research and usability testing to understand these persona’s and design a solution to enhance their experience of the mobile app.
