NOMI is a 2016 ProtoType Quantified Student App. It quantifies the movement of a group of students. It answers and quantifies the all important question:
How does my group function. And how do I function in the group.
The Prototype NOMI is finding out how groups behave and what is the sentiment in a group. They do this by measuring:
- How is the group moving (based on WIFI data). Are they together a lot or not?
- How are participants in the group feeling?
- How does the group compare to other groups?
This way you can predict group dynamics. You can show your teacher/coach when to intervene in the way the group works. Of course some challenges around GDPR have to be worked out, but it is just a prototype.
The app works easy. Most students are in more groups. You sign up for a group as do your fellow students. The movement of the group is than calculated based on wifi – data. As a group you receive a score and outliers can be found. Also the groupmembers are prompted to tell how they are feeling. Together this calculates the Group Barometer.
Nothing. This was a fun prototype.
What’s the big problem here?
The big problem here of course is privacy.
