Backpack

Helping students with dyslexia lighten their load together.

Students with dyslexia often feel isolated and left behind in traditional classroom settings, and their families usually lack access to the individualized and project-based learning strategies that are offered in private school.

Backpack leverages the power of storytelling and visualization to connect students with dyslexia on a virtual platform, allowing users to share and reflect upon their collective experiences with a supportive community.

Design Process

We used low-fi, medium-fi, and high-fi prototypes to receive feedback on every iteration and stage of our product. Our team learned that involving our users from the start was key to a successful product.
