n this fun, interactive workshop, you'll learn the basics of designing for kids through hands-on activities, projects and collaborative activities. You will learn techniques for research and testing with kids as well as specific strategies for designing for kids of different ages. Finally, you'll learn how to apply these strategies and techniques to adult audiences as well.
The workshop will include:
Examples of great (and not-so-great) kids' digital experiences
How designing for kids is different from designing for adults
Privacy, safety and security issues
Research and Design Techniques: Kids 2 to 5, 6 to 9 and 10 to 12
What designing for kids can teach us about designing for adults
Working alone or in groups, participants will pick an age group and topic and will create a plan and some sketches for a kids' app. Participants will share their ideas with the group.
I create digital experiences for kids & grownups. I'm writing a book called Design for Kids, to be published by Rosenfeld Media in 2013. bio from Twitter
