Responsive Face

Responsive Face is an applet from NYU's Media Lab.  The interface allows you to explore facial expressions with your students by selecting different facial actions, which can of course be linked to emotions.  Thanks to Alex Laufer Lobo of Dramatic Pragmatics for sharing this resource with me.

Language Lens:
  • Students with social cognitive deficits lack emotional vocabulary and ability to read nonverbal cues.  Creating lessons with Responsive Face, perhaps in a larger context such as exploring emotions in a book, video or real life event, is a motivating, interactive way to explicitly teach what different facial expressions mean.
