Importance of Student Emotional Intelligence
At first glance, education and emotion detection may not seem related, but it is becoming more essential for primary and secondary students to learn about their mental health. With the rise of technology in our daily lives, students need to understand how emotions play a role in their overall well-being and how technology can be used to support their mental health.
For those supporting child development, bolstering student communication and awareness of mental wellness is crucial. Technology can be a tool for harm, or for positive growth, and understanding emotional intelligence has proven to positively impact academic performance and social relationships.
The Project Process
The student's final project is focused on developing a video rating system that utilizes Upmood products and the platform Machine Learning for Kids. This system aims to predict the type of video someone is watching by observing a person's mood while they're watching. Specifically, the model is trained using biodata collected from Upmood wearable to identify whether the user is watching a comedy or a meditation video. Through this project, the students gain an understanding of predictive modeling and the ability to infer what someone is watching based on their emotions.

Through this partnership, students can learn about emotions while being equipped with essential technological skills. Caprikon will be teaching Upmood technology and integrated IoT concepts to local students. We want to align ourselves with other companies that share our values because we believe Upmood is a way to open up conversations on individual and group emotions. We are excited to see how Upmood can support other students in the future.
