Perception Versus Reality: Awareness of Physical Activity Levels of British Children

submitted by: vansgirl
Background: Interventions to increase children’s physical activity have had limited success.

Purpose: This study aimed to assess awareness of physical activity levels among British school children aged 9–10 years and their parents.

Using The Metaphysics Of Quality To Define Design Science

submitted by: bartneck
Design has evolved from a craft into an academic discipline, but it still falls short on defining its own science. I review previous approaches to Design Science and conclude that the subject–object dualism is the one of the main obstacles. I then apply the Metaphysics of Quality to overcome the dualism and propose Quality as the phenomenon of Design Science. Next, I propose to utilize the analysis of interaction effects as a mean to investigate Quality. Last, I recommend steps we can take...
