The <i>Designing with Emotion App</i> © was developed to help understand the emotional dimensions of designing to help novice designers cope and form resilience, and has the potential to sit alongside other mechanisms in the learning environment to help develop mindful, emotionally intelligent, agile and resilient learners. The project underlined that reflective practice can be enhanced with mobile technologies and should be a skill that is consistently encouraged and emphasized in education by teaching staff. The project identifies a possible gap in teaching and learning with respect to emotion, and that a more holistic approach of embedding emotion and emotional awareness within designing contexts and teaching and learning practices is needed. This information has the potential to provide educators an understanding of how and where emotion plays out at key points within the curriculum period and the possibility to augment this data with ‘just in-time’ responsive engagement/management.
