Talk N Walk Pilot

With the co-design process complete, the Talk N Walk app is currently in development and is now ready for user-testing!

Led by 2021 Women in Tech WA (WiTWA) Award Winner, Bec Nguyen, the Talk N Walk user-testing will involve 11–14-year-old girls, as well as some parents, trialling the app over four weeks and providing feedback through a range of options including surveys, interviews and/or focus group sessions. 

The direct benefit of participating in the Talk N Walk user-testing is to trial a unique solution - developed with girls, for girls - to increasing physical activity levels and improving mental health.

Those involved in the user-testing will have the opportunity to contribute feedback on the design, functionality and content that will directly inform improvements to the app before it is launched to the wider public later this year.  

Participating in this process will also provide insight into digital health as a potential career pathway. All students participating will receive a Certificate of Participation and are welcome to request a reference letter to add to their curriculum vitae CV/resume.
