MONITORING AND IMPROVING STUDENTS LIFESTYLE HABITS

Currently in Spain we suffer from a high scholar withdrawal rate, significantly larger than in other European countries, particularly in young people ageing 18 to 24 years old. Several research studies explain that some risks related to the poor marks and student withdrawal could be avoided. One of the main factors which may cause the withdrawal is following unhealthy lifestyle habits, since they affect negatively to the student capacity to concentrate and work. Having better habits may not only improve the academic results, but also prevent illnesses related to such habits. In this paper, we propose a system that permits automatically detecting unhealthy lifestyle habits. Once such habits are detected in real time, a person in charge of looking after the student —such as an educational phycologist— will be aware of the habits affecting negatively to the student and will suggest him to introduce lifestyle changes and therefore to guarantee him better academic results.
