Photo Album created at the Games To Explain Human Factors: Come, Participate, Learn & Have Fun!!! workshop sponsored by DocTrain in East Burlington, MA on October 29, 2008. The half-day workshop, taught by Ron Shapiro, used games to illustrate how you can optimize information design and other aspects of their solutions to capitalize on human strengths and compensate for human weaknesses.

Two Point Discrimination Threshold One member of the audience touches another with one or two tacks. The second member responds one or two. Sensitive!!!

Sound Localization Asra Sheikh attempts to point to the pencils being tapped. Asra points “back” when sound is “in front” without head movement. Asra points “left” when sound is “on left” without head movement. Interesting!!!

Perceived Temperature Robert Anderson holds a quarter and a cotton ball to his face. He reports the quarter feels cooler though both are actually the same temperature. Virginia points “back” when Sound is “in front” without head movement.

Attention to Details Jennifer McDaid studied her birthday bandana. Then she was blindfolded. Jennifer was asked to describe the bandana. She correctly described most features of the bandana. When asked if the bandana contained balloons she was uncertain, but when asked the color of the balloons she identified some balloon colors. Challenging!!!

Attention to Details Ron applied some lotion to Jennifer’s right hand. Jennifer correctly identified the lotion after smelling it. Ron then touched her left hand and asked what was on her left hand. She replied “nothing” several times. Ron then handed her a heart shaped light and asked if the hint was helpful. Jennifer replied “No”. Lotion Lotion

Attention to Details (continued) Jennifer then felt of her left hand where Ron touched her hand. Again she said there was nothing on her left hand. Why is this task so difficult?

Attention to Details (continued) Ron then asked Jennifer to hold out her right hand with her fingers spread apart. He is shown preparing to place a “ring” on Jennifer’s right hand Lotion Lotion

Attention to Details (continued) Jennifer answered correctly. Great Work!!!

Wendy Fish caught the dollar bill that Dr. Shapiro dropped between her index and middle fingers in her final successful attempt. Responding Takes Time Great Catch!!!

The Semi-Finalists Congratulations, Everyone!!!

Selecting the Champion The semi-finalists closed their eyes and the audience voted by applause for the “Hardest Working Volunteer.” Jennifer McDaid received most of the applause and was thus elected. Immediately after winning she was surprised with a blindfold being placed over her eyes.

The Final Exam After Jennifer’s blindfold was in place she was told that she won the election to take the final exam. For her final exam she was to name as many people as she could in the front of the room and explain what they did. She missed herself and Ron. Don't forget yourself or Ron, Jennifer!!!
