Assessment & Research
MPRC has a proprietary approach to media technology assessment. Our research on technology usability goes beyond traditional functionality assessment. We evaluate the user experience at a psychological level and the social cognitive implications of the user’s environment, self-schema, and understanding of technology. Therefore, we comprehensively examine eight domains. These include
- Cognitive level
- Developmental stage
- Visual integration
- Affective response
- Social cognition
- Comprehension and meaning
Positive Media Psychology
We educate media producers, developers, and marketers so they can create and promote media that emphasizes strengths, values, and positive emotions.
We advise parents and educators on developing and delivering media literacy and media fluency programs.
